Lack of exclusive breastfeeding among infants months of age and no breastfeeding among children months of age are associated with increased diarrhea morbidity and mortality in developing countries. We estimate the protective effects conferred by varying levels of breastfeeding exposure against diarrhea incidence, diarrhea prevalence, diarrhea mortality, all-cause mortality, and hospitalization for diarrhea illness. We systematically reviewed all literature published from to assessing levels of suboptimal breastfeeding as a risk factor for selected diarrhea morbidity and mortality outcomes.
Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. I had a choice after the success of The Notebook as to what kind of book I should write next. I could play it safe, I thought, and write a book that was essentially the same as The Notebook, one that dealt with the same theme of everlasting, unconditional love.
That would have been easy since I'd already done it once and I had no doubt that I could make the story interesting. I could invent a couple of older characters, tell how they'd fallen in love in the beginning of their lives, add a "test" of some sort later in life, and have the love remain true throughout it all.
Yet part of the magic of The Notebook was not knowing what was going to happen in the story, and no matter what I wrote, it would be impossible to recreate that "magic" since part of it came from "not knowing" what would happen in the story.
I like to put it into these terms: Suppose you went to a magic show and saw a trick that enthralled you. Then later, while at home, you learn how the trick was performed. No matter what you did, the next time you saw the trick, you wouldn't feel the same way you did the first time you saw it.
That's what I thought would happen if I tried to write a novel that was exactly the same, and I figured that if I did that again, there would come a time that no one would read my books, since they already knew the story in advance.
I knew, however, that I had to write another love story, so I decided to change the story by using a different theme. This time, I chose the theme love after grief, and again I turned to my family for inspiration.
Message in a Bottle was inspired by my father after the death of my mother. Insix weeks after I was married, my mother and father went horseback riding. They were avid riders and very comfortable on horses, and were simply walking the horses along a scenic trail. For a reason that no one can explain -- we assume it was the horse, a rather skittish Arabian -- my mom fell out of the saddle, off the horse, hit her head on a rock, had a cerebral hemorrhage and died.
My mother and father had married at the age of twenty-one and my father was absolutely crushed by her death. They'd been married twenty-seven years and my father didn't have the slightest idea of what it meant to be a grown-up without my mom.
A lot of people wear black to a funeral. My father wore black every day for four years. He pretty much became a recluse. He pulled away from his family and friends, he stopped going out, he stopped doing pretty much everything. All he did was go to work and back home again.
It was heart-breaking to watch. After four long years of worrying about him, my father finally started taking baby steps out in the world again. He started reconnecting with family and friends, eventually he started to date again -- think more years passing -- eventually he met someone in particular, eventually he fell in love again.
And then one day, about seven years after my mom had died, I got a call from my father. Now, I was happy about that, not because I didn't care about my mom -- I adored her -- but because I'd been so worried about my father.
Kids worry about their parents the same way parents worry about their kids, and I was glad that he'd finally found someone. Two days after that phone call, my father was driving home late one night, fell asleep at the wheel of his car, crashed, and died.
After the novel came out, there were times when I couldn't believe the reaction to it. People were very upset by the ending. Even though I write tragedies, Garrett's death at the end of the novel came as a surprise to many readers.
Now that you understand the parallels with my father's story, perhaps it makes sense now. Yet I want you to know that I didn't write the story as I did simply to "share the misery" so to speak. Rather, I wrote it because of the lessons that I learned from what my father went through; namely, that no matter how hard and terrible life can be at times, it's possible to move on.
The story in the novel was essentially circular -- it began and ended in exactly the same place, with someone grieving for someone loved and lost.Book page mason jar candle holder, illuminated with a tealight candle.
What a simple DIY project! I came across this idea on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a shot since it seemed so simple. A year-old Bermuda boy participating in a beach cleanup project found a message in a bottle that traveled more than 1, miles in just four years.
