Stop The Explosion of Premature Births in America With Fish Oil

Almost 13 percent of all the babies in the United States are born prematurely, amounting to more than 500,000 a year, according to a new report from the Institute of Medicine. Those numbers represent a 30 percent increase from just two decades ago.

The latest culprit targeted by conventional medicine: Infertility treatments that often yield multiple births. In fact, 62 percent of the twins and 97 percent of other multiple births that were conceived through infertility treatments were born prematurely.

The annual price tag for helping premature babies survive: An estimated $26 billion spent on treating dire birth complications such as asthma, cerebral palsy and mental retardation. Babies born prior to the 32-week mark are more prone to such severe problems and 20 percent of them will die before their first birthday.

Fortunately, a mother-to-be can greatly reduce her chances of a premature birth naturally and safely by consuming a fish oil, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, among the most important nutrients that pregnant women miss in their diets. The best and purest source I've found is a high quality krill oil, derived from fish that are harvested in the clean waters of the Antarctic, that I sell in my Web store.
