"Scientists have been retooling Prevnar, which came on the market in 2000 and is advised for children under age 2. It protects against the seven strains of Strep bacteria that were causing the most serious infections at the time. Since then, new strains have become more of a threat and increasingly are resistant to common antibiotics." (bolding mine)

Isn't this [I]because[I] of the prevnar vaccine?

LOL

I thought breastfeeding was the most significant way to prevent diarrhea. All those live antibodies going straight into the gut and all...

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!
