Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake bite

Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake biteAn Indian woman who was bitten by a snake in her sleep and unknowingly breastfed poisoned milk to her daughter has died along with the child, police said Friday. The 35-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh state did not realise she had been bitten when she woke and breastfed her daughter. The three-year-old girl and the mother fell ill on Thursday and both died before they could reach hospital, police inspector Vijay Singh told AFP. The family spotted the snake in another room but the creature escaped. A post-mortem is to be carried out but police have registered a case of accidental death, the officer added. India is home to some 300 snake species and 60 are highly venomous, including the Indian cobra, krait, Russell's viper and saw-scaled viper. India accounts for 46,000 of the 100,000 snakebite deaths around the world each year, according to a 2011 study by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

American Airlines tried to charge a mother $150 for traveling with breast milk

American Airlines tried to charge a mother $  150 for traveling with breast milkHow is it that airlines keep screwing up simple things like company policy and established TSA rules? The latest travel blunder belongs to American Airlines. When Sara showed up with her husband and young son for their flight from Boston to Arizona, the gate attendant stopped them for having too many bags and tried to charge them a $ 150 fee to check a cooler filled with frozen breast milk. SEE ALSO: Some jerk just diverted a flight by naming his hotspot 'bomb on board' Salow told ABC 15 that she and her husband had shown up with four carry-on items: a stroller, a diaper bag, a backpack, and the aforementioned cooler. "I'm like, 'This is a diaper bag, which I thought was exempt; [that backpack is] his personal item and we have the cooler — I didn't have a personal item,'" Salow told ABC 15. Most airlines — including American — allow passengers to travel with one carry-on and one "personal item," which for most people usually amounts to a small suitcase and a backpack, briefcase, or purse. Additionally, Salow told the news station that she'd looked into what she could bring with her ahead of time. American Airlines exempts certain items from the carry-on policy, including strollers, diaper bags.  Further, TSA rules exempt breast milk from the "no liquids" policy, and American recognizes that — though ABC 15's report notes that the airline's website didn't specifically list breast milk as exempt until Dec. 14. Despite all of that, Salow told ABC 15 that the gate attendant tried to make her pay a $ 150 fee to check the cooler. "We were pretty mad. I immediately started crying," she said. "It was humiliating, they kept telling us it was because we were basic economy passengers; it really felt demeaning." The couple ended up leaving their cooler behind. The airline later issued a statement in response to the incident, apologizing to Salow. WATCH: This suitcase can transform into a stroller for your child

Online human breast milk craze has serious health risks: experts

Writing in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, specialists said there was little evidence to support claims that the milk – traded via websites in a lucrative market for adult buyers – is some kind of super food that can boost health and fitness and ward off disease. On the contrary, the experts warned, raw and unpasteurized human breast milk bought online can expose consumers to many serious infectious diseases, including hepatitis, HIV and syphilis. It is also potentially very hazardous if used to replace a healthy balanced diet, Sarah Steele, a specialist at the global health and policy unit at Queen Mary University of London, wrote in the journal.
