•Northern women jettison superstition, go for family planning Multiple child birth, especially in northern Nigeria, is a practice most women take pride in. It is also common to see one man with three or four wives having between 40 and 50 children. Such a family boasts of its children as “wealth” even when there are no adequate resources to cater for them. Through this unplanned childbirth, the notion of almajiri system, which now plagues the region, came to be. Women, who get more appreciation for the number of children they give birth to, unfortunately, bear the brunt of the weird bravery largely due to ignorance, poverty and lack of access to quality healthcare, and this leads to the rise in death rate of mothers and newborn. In recent past, discussing issues of family planning was do

Fathers Who Exercise Have Smarter Babies

Exercise changes the brains and sperm of male animals in ways that later affect the brains and thinking skills of their offspring, according to a fascinating new study involving mice.The findings indicate that some of the brain benefits of physical activity may be passed along to children, even if a father does not begin to exercise until adulthood. Among other effects, physical activity can strengthen the connections between neurons in the hippocampus, a crucial part of the brain involved in memory and learning. Stronger neuronal connections there generally mean sharper thinking. Studies also indicate that exercise, like other aspects of lifestyle, can alter how genes work — whether and when they get turned on or off, for instance — and those changes can get passed on to children.
