Health Benefits of Breastfeeding; Ohio's Smoking Rate; Sports Gambling

Featured Audio

Earlier this month a United States delegation attempted to strip pro-breastfeeding language from a World Health Organization resolution. Other countries viewed the move as the U-S siding with formula manufacturers. The CDC says that breastfeeding is the best source of nutrition for most babies, and can be beneficial for mothers as well. But what if mothers can't breastfeed, or have adopted children? What are the best options for them? A childbirth educator from MetroHealth joins us to help answer those questions.

Then, Ohio has among the highest rates of smoking in the country. Despite the national rate falling, Ohioans continue to light up. We'll hear from a doctor, and an anti-smoking advocate on why Ohio rates are so high and what resources are available to help people quit, provided they want to. 

Finally, a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision reversed a ban on sports gambling, which could allow betting in Ohio. ideastream's Rick Jackson and Darrielle Snipes interviewed some major players to find out what that could mean for Ohio.
