11 YEAR OLD GIRL GIVES BIRTH TO BOY "LEAKED VIDEO" http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com 11 YEAR OLD GIRL GIVES BIRTH TO BOY "LEAKED VIDEO" An 11-year-old girl in the Northeast recently gave birth to a baby boy, according to the girl’s family. "My daughter and baby are fine, and the baby is absolutely beautiful," stated the girl’s mother. The girl and her family are not being named in order to protect the girl’s privacy. According to Dr. Manny Alvarez, managing health editor of FoxNews.com, the girl’s age places her in significant dangers "A very comprehensive approach to her care needs to be instituted early in her pregnancy," Alvarez said. A recent report by the Guttmacher Institute said U.S. teen pregnancies were up 3 percent in 2006. But of course, this case is not about a teenager, Dr. Abdulla Al-Khan, a leading high-risk obstetrician noted; it’s about a pre-teen, or child, who’s body is not built to carry a child yet. "Her body is clearly not defined for pregnancy with its short stature," Al-Khan said. "Her chest is not extensively developed for breast tissue, her bones aren’t quite fused, and once you expose a child this young to high amounts of progesterone and especially estrogen, there is controversy that it could halt her growth." http://funfactsandinfo.blogspot.com

Transcript by Newsy.com BY GRACE MEINERS You're watching multisource U.S news from Newsy It looks like the yogurt, Activia, is causing some irregularities for Dannon. The yogurt, known for its endorsement by actress Jamie Lee Curtis, apparently isn’t quite as active as it claims. Attorneys general from 39 states said they reached a $21 million settlement Wednesday with the yogurt maker over its marketing claims. This was the largest multi-state settlement of its kind. Attorneys general say they have no problem with the yogurt, just what it claims to do. “Dannon had claimed Activia has so-called ‘pro-biotics’ that improve health and digestion. But the charges cited 2006 report that says there’s no conclusive evidence the yogurt works.” Dr. Manny Alvarez tells FoxBusiness though the yogurt might be good for you, Dannon was more concerned with its own bottom line than its customers’ tummy troubles. “Probiotics, although they’re very good for your health, you don’t guarantee something like that. I hate when food companies get into the medical business.” Dannon says it fully cooperated with investigators, and in a statement says it’s - quote - “pleased to have the inquiries concluded.” An NYU nutrition professor tells USA Today the lawsuit is monumental for consumers. Food makers will finally have to put their money where their mouth is. "It's a shot across the bow that food marketers are going to have to stop using unsubstantiated health claims as marketing tools.” The attorneys also went after DanActive, a yogurt drink claiming to boost immunity. Activia and DanActive will stay on the shelves. No word from Jamie Lee Curtis, though. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY: LINDSEY WOLF You're watching multisource health video news analysis from Newsy. An FDA panel says a ban on menthol cigarettes would be beneficial to public health. A June 2009 act gave the FDA the authority to regulate tobacco laws. The act banned all flavored cigarettes - including clove and strawberry - but decided to leave the fate of menthols in the hands of nine voting members on an advisory panel. (video: C-SPAN) And concern over minty cigarettes isn’t new. About a year ago - Dr. Manny Alvarez explained the concerns on Fox Business. “Ultimately the bad thing about menthol is that the cooling effect of the menthol really takes away a couple of the clinical issues when it comes to smoking. It sort of decreases your coughing reflex and also it makes the person inhale deeper. So in theory, you could be doing more damage when you smoke these types of cigarette. So I think this is a good thing to look at.” The panel is not only concerned about the cool flavor attracting teenagers, but also African Americans - who smoke menthols more than other demographics. The Washington Post says this could be because brands like Kool and Newport have been targeting them in their advertising for years. (video: The Wall Street Journal) But Tobacco companies are firing back. They have acknowledged that all cigarettes are hazardous, but have presented the FDA with reports saying... “There's no scientific basis for regulating menthols differently … Menthol cigarettes don't make it easier for people to start smoking or harder for them to quit or raise their risk of disease.” But menthol smokers make up 27 percent of the cigarette market. The president of American Wholesale Marketers Association told the advisory committee - if menthol cigarettes are banned, smokers will find a way around the system. “Common sense tells us that a decision that lacks credibility will be disregarded by the public and exploited by black market operators. The end result will adversely affect our members' livelihoods, cost jobs, and lead to sales of unregulated cigarettes to underage youths.” But according to The New York Times, health groups say this could be the beginning of a long line of tobacco reforms. “The menthol issue poses the first real test of the advisory committee and F.D.A. toughness against cigarettes. The recommendation may signal a willingness to crack down on nicotine...” The FDA will make their decision on whether or not to ban menthols by March 23. If the ban passes, members say it could take years for it to go fully into effect. Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos Get more health video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy.

BY JIM FLINK You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. It’s just -- baby babble. So why have five MILLION people tuned it? The latest viral video to storm YouTube -- seems to be more than that. Take a look. Video: ABC News So are twins Sam and Ren arguing? Some say -- twins can communicate in ways other babies can’t. It’s called Twintuition. A writer for Michigan’s Monroe News says, after watching this video, she’s a believer. “I showed the twin argument video to my husband, and we promptly got into an argument. I believe that babies DO have a special language and that this video clearly shows the heated thrust and parry of verbal fencing.” On Fox News, Dr. Manny Alvarez says no way. He says, twins share the womb, so they’re more familiar with one another. They are mimicking and communicating -- but they are NOT talking. (Alvarez) “Well No. They are communicating in the sense that they are imitating each other. They are recognizing that they have been around for a long-long time, and they will be for a long-long time. So, it’s more natural for them to start mimicking each other, but insofar as they are communicating... (Anchor) “So they’re not saying, hey look you only have one sock on...” (Alvarez) “Oh, come on -- no.” But a professor tells ABC News, this kind of babble is the precursor -- to real conversation. “Even before they have words, they know how conversation works. They’re producing syllables emphatically and using them for communication purposes. They’re having a ball.” Some can’t resist having a bigger laugh -- through translation. College Humor decided to make a parody on baby babble -- as symptomatic of today’s political discourse. “Here we go. Those people are much better off. I mean, Dad, you’re with me right? Yeah, go crying to dad... I’m not crying! I’m asking his opinion! You’re telling him his opinion! 'Like Newsy' on Facebook for updates in your feed.
