Scientists predict that C-sections will cause us to evolve, with bigger heads and smaller pelvises - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good afternoon!

Tyler writes today about an interesting theory one scientist has about how cesarean sections may affect our evolution.

Our species is odd because we've evolved so that a fetus's head just barely fits through mother's pelvis. This is because of the dual benefits of having big heads (bigger brains) and small pelvises (better for standing, walking and running).

Because the risk of fetal and/or maternal death from baby's head not fitting through the pelvis is much less because we have another way to get baby out (C-section), one scientist believes that babies will eventually grow bigger and bigger heads because they can.

So there you go. Science! Maybe!

Your life is worth less in Washington if you die at 18 instead of 17 - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good morning,

Tyler writes today about the unfair wrongful death laws in Washington State.

If someone dies as a result of the negligence of another, there is a bright line rule: if the decedent is a minor (17 years, 364 days old), the minor’s parents can recover for the relationship they each lost. However, if the same person dies the next day (age 18 years and 0 days), the parents have no such claims.

You can read more about this here, including how this lack of accountability makes us all less safe:

cmglaw.com In Washington, if you are 18 and die due to the wrongful actions of another, unless you were providing your parents substantial support, they have no claims for their loss.

New Technology Identifies Antibiotics To Treat Drug-Resistant Infections - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good morning and Happy New Year!

Gene writes today about how medical researchers are attempting to fight the current serious problem of drug-resistant infections. As many know, the incidence of such infections is increasing, in part due to the overuse of antibiotics in the past. Now, researchers are hoping that new screening methods will allow doctors to limit the use of broad spectrum antibiotics, better and more quickly target the offending organism, and hopefully help save lives.
