HEALTH 06/27/2018 02:42 pm ET The country’s human rights organizations are warning Americans not to make the same “horrible mistakes.” By Anna Almendrala Since 1994, every single person who has come to Australian shores by boat without a visa ― most of them asylum-seekers ― has been taken to mandatory indefinite detention. Mandatory, as in there are almost no exceptions. Indefinite, in that it could theoretically last forever. And detention is just like what it sounds like. While some detention centers are hotel rooms or rented housing on the Australian mainland, the most notorious ones are prison-like facilities. They have high, sometimes electrified walls, as well as guards, poor health care and education, and an almost total lack of freedom of movement.

Abstract BackgroundWhilst many countries have introduced legislation prohibiting tobacco advertising and sponsorship, references to tobacco continue to appear in the media. This study quantified and characterized tobacco smoking content in popular women's magazines.MethodsThe 10 top weekly and 5 monthly women's magazines most popular among 15–34 year olds in Britain published over a 3-month period were included. A content analysis was conducted for both written and visual content.ResultsIn 146 magazines, there were 310 instances of tobacco content, the majority of which were positive towards smoking.

Abstract BackgroundPrevious research has examined the role of early-life risk factors on childhood weight gain.The extent to which these factors drive socioeconomic differences in weight is unclear. We aimed to quantify the influence of early-life risk factors on the development of socioeconomic inequalities in children’s body mass index (BMI) z-score at 10–11 years.MethodsOverall, 2186 children from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children were examined. Socioeconomic position (SEP) was measured as a continuous composite of parent’s education, occupation and income. The Product of Coefficients mediation method was used to quantify the contribution of maternal smoking during pregnancy, gestational diabetes, prematurity, caesarean section, birthweight, not being breastfed, early introduction of solid food, maternal BMI and paternal BMI to the relationship between SEP and BMI z-score.ResultsEach increasing decile of SEP (higher SEP) was associated with a 0.05 unit … [Read more...] about Influence of early-life risk factors on socioeconomic inequalities in weight gain
