Herb for Minor Depression?

JAMA. 2003;289(15):1915. doi:10.1001/jama.289.15.1915-a

In the year 2000, about 58 000 infants were born weighing less than 1500 g. Although this figure accounts for just 1.4% of all births, very low-birth–weight infants account for the highest rates of neonatal morbidity and mortality.

In particular, such infants are at risk for neurological impairments, abnormal cognitive development, speech and language delay, hearing loss, behavioral disorders, learning disabilities, visual impairment, pulmonary impairment, and growth impairment, concludes a new evidence report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
