Amazing Vernix

I just had to share this link — the “summary” would be (drum roll, please) that there are antimicrobial agents in vernix and amniotic fluid. The authors theorize that if more babies were allowed to have the vernix kept on their skin and/or rubbed in, that there would be fewer infections that sometimes can be dangerous.
