Lupus, Syphilis, and Breast Milk

A few articles you might find interesting:

Lupus and the Pill

Using birth control pills is safe for the majority of women suffering from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) A new clinical trial finds that oral contraceptives do not increase flares in SLE patients.

Oral Sex and Syphilis

You should be aware that syphilis is readily transmitted via unprotected oral sex (and so are other sexually transmitted infections). Mouth (oral) lesions may carry high concentrations of Treponema pallidum [the syphilis organism] and are thus highly infectious.

Breast Milk Storage

Human breast milk should be stored at refrigerator temperatures for no longer than two days, according to the results of a small trial.... Storage for longer periods or at colder temperatures causes the milk to lose antioxidant activity.
