It is now clear to us that the loss of a twin before birth leaves a profound psychological effect on the surviving twin – the wombtwin survivor.  Few people realise that many intractable psychological problems and personality disorders may be related to the loss of a twin before birth.

Uma solução brilhante para uma situação complexa

Nos EUA, pensar em manteiga de amendoim traz à mente imagens de sanduíches preparados para comer no almoço no lanchinho da tarde, ou em qualquer outra situação agradável, mas para crianças em populações mal nutridas ao redor do mundo, a manteiga de amendoim significa sobrevivência.

A Brilliant Solution for a Sticky Situation

In the United States, the thought of peanut butter conjures images of lunchtime sandwiches, midday snacks, and the occasional sweet treat, but for children in underserved populations around the world, peanut butter means survival.

In Haiti, a super-fortified peanut butter called Medika Mamba, or “peanut butter medicine” in Haitian Creole, is helping severely malnourished children restore their health within three to five days.
