Worldwide, traditional diets are being replaced by diets with high proportions of ultra-processed industrial foods, meat products and refined sugars, fats and oils. By contrast, the (slowly) growing consumption of unrefined organic food products and the more and more popular organic-type of diets are associated with lower consumption of these foods. In this comment, we argue that the growth of the organic food chain is already now contributing to the goal of improving public health in global ter...

Abstract The amnion is considered to be the load-bearing part of the fetal membranes. We investigated the influence of osmolarity of the testing medium and hydration on its fracture toughness. Mode I fracture tests revealed that physiological variations in the bath osmolarity do not influence the tear resistance of amnion, while larger changes, i.e. from physiological saline solution to distilled water, lead to a significant reduction of the fracture toughness. Uniaxial tensile tests on collagen...

Bryophyllum pinnatum has been used since the 1970s to prevent premature labour, first in anthroposophic hospitals and, more recently, also in the main Swiss perinatal centres. However, it is not known which compounds in B. pinnatum leaves contribute to the tocolytic effect. Here we studied the effects of a flavonoid-enriched fraction, the corresponding flavonoid aglycon mixture, a bufadienolide-enriched fraction, and B. pinnatum leaf press juice on human myometrial contractility in vitro . The s...

Background In order to improve the safety for drugs in pregnancy and lactation, data on the clinical practice must be collected and validated. Methods Data on the medications routinely used were requested from the university hospitals for obstetrics and the non-university perinatal centres in Switzerland and recommendations and guidelines of scientific societies for the various fields of application were sought. Results Part I: For during pregnancy and the peripartal period respectively, 69 and ...

Pregnant women are daily exposed to potentially harmful agents, such as food products and household chemicals, as well as medications. Affected women and health professionals are still often unsure about how to react.

An earlier prospective, randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial had suggested that Bryophyllum pinnatum might have potential in the treatment of overactive bladder. Here we investigated the effects of B. pinnatum leaf press juice, fractions enriched in flavonoids and bufadienolides, and a flavonoid aglycon mixture and individual aglycons on detrusor contractility as a major target in overactive bladder treatment. The strength of the detrusor contractions was investigated using porcine musc...
