A nursery director from Surrey in south east England, beat breast cancer in 2017 after several aggressive operations. Once she got the all-clear, she and her husband of three years Drew decided they wanted to start a family. Everything went smoothly until, just under three months into her pregnancy, she developed an agonizing pain in her arm. Concerned, Mrs King pushed for an x-ray which revealed a shadow on her bone. An MRI confirmed the worst: she had secondary bone cancer which is generally deemed 'incurable' since it is incredibly difficult to treat. She immediately started a course of targeted therapy on the bone, but cannot explore other options such as clinical trials because they could be harmful to her unborn baby - and some effective treatments are not available on the NHS. Her friends and family are now scrambling to raise money on GoFundMe to support her during sick leave and maternity leave, and to afford emerging treatments once the baby is born. Mail.

Using some baby wipes on infants may promote childhood food allergies, researchers claim. Influences including genes that alter skin absorbency, soap left on the skin from baby wipes and allergens in dust and food around the home can combine to trigger allergies, they said. Researchers say that sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), an ingredient in soap found in baby wipes, can linger on an infant’s skin and disrupt its natural protective fatty barrier. SLS is not found in any major baby wipe brands in the UK. Previous research has suggested that exposure to tiny particles of food proteins through the skin, before exposure via the gut, means that the body’s immune system categorises them as a threat. Times.
