NPR : Babies' Cells Linger, May Protect Mothers
Heard this story Wednesday morning, it was fascinating. Especially this part: "Some scientists have proposed that when a woman has a baby, she gets not just a son or a daughter, but a gift of cells that stays behind and protects her for the rest of her life. That's because a baby's cells linger in its mom's body for decades and -- like stem cells -- may help to repair damage when she gets sick. It's such an enticing idea that even the scientists who came up with the idea worry that it may be too beautiful to be true." Anyway, take a minute to listen to the story.
Thank goodness! Last audition night on American Idol. Unlike the rest of the free world, this part of the competition is my least favorite part. I like the REAL performances.
