WSJ features Dr Sutapa Neogi’s study on folk remedies and birth defectsBACK
On 4 July 2016, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) featured a recent work by Dr Sutapa B Neogi, Additional Professor, Public Health Foundation of India, which hosts the Know Violence in Childhood Secretariat.
Dr Neogi, a physician and a maternal & child health specialist, and her colleagues published a study in the journal, Paediatric Perinatal Epidemiology on the risk factors for stillbirth. The WSJ feature highlights the conclusion drawn by the study that sex-selection remedies containing high levels of potentially hazardous chemicals such as mercury, and ground peacock feather, and mimicking the effect of human hormones, are a risk factor in about 20% of all stillbirths in the northern Indian state of Haryana, where use of such drugs is widespread.
