    Fact check yourself, Grey Lady. “Born 27 weeks premature”? Born at 27 weeks gestation, maybe.

    27 weeks premature? You mean born at 27 weeks, prematurely?

    It should read, 27 weeks gestational age, not 27 weeks premature

    Great article but I think a word is missing: The bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, likes moist environments and grows in water but only presents a danger to extremely fragile patients, such [AS] underdeveloped babies who already have a compromised immune system.

    According to America's Health Ranking Annual Report, the U.S. infant mortality rate is 5.9 deaths per 1,000 live infant births, while the average rate of infant mortality among other developed countries is 3.9 deaths per 1,000 live births. Shame on the USA for its high mortality

    Iceland is ranked No. 1 and has the lowest rate with 0.7 deaths per 1,000 live births.
