Did you know that Filipino mothers have shortened the duration of breastfeeding their babies exclusively? From what used to be 3 months exclusive breastfeeding, this has now gone down to 2.3 months.

This is according to the 6th and 7th National Nutrition Survey results conducted in 2003 and 2008, respectively by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST).

This is to ensure optimum growth and development by the baby.

Summer is the best time to fight dengue mosquitoes—DOST study PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maria Luisa S. Lumioan, S&T Media Service, DOST-STII

Summer may be the best time to eliminate the breeding sites of dengue-causing mosquitoes to prevent a dengue epidemic in the coming rainy season.

This was revealed by Dr. Frances Edillo of the University of San Carlos in her talk during the 32nd anniversary celebration of the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD).

Her statement stems from a DOST-PCHRD funded study, which she led in Cebu City, proving that transovarial transmission of the dengue virus occurs in the study site. Transovarial transmission is the transmission of a virus from the mother mosquito to its offspring.  Horizontal transmission, on the other hand, is the transmission from mosquito to humans and vice versa.
