And Then the Day Changes… Miscarriages Explained?
After gritting my teeth this morning as I read Rep. Gingrey’s comments on what infertility has in common with “legitimate rape,” I then opened the Stir a few minutes ago to see that a study has found a possible explanation for why miscarriages occur. According to that post,
In a study, laboratory tests showed that women who had lost three or more babies had high levels of a molecule known as IL-33 in their womb cells. These molecules control whether or not the uterus accepts an embryo.
The study was published in a journal called PLOS ONE, and it seems to go hand-in-hand with an earlier study that came out this past summer in Journal of Reproductive Immunology. And while I know a bunch of you roll your eyes at the fact that I read the Daily Mail from time to time (but strangely enough don’t roll your eyes at the fact that People magazine is my Bible?), I thought they had a very good, simple explanation of what the study found.
