a new study finds that when one embryo is placed, there is a risk for twins. the doctor with the fox medical team is live with us to explain. good morning. >> good morning. yeah. this study was done in japan. in japan in 2008 they started only transferring one single embryo into mothers and that happened later in the united states. a lot of times they were implanting more than one, hoping that one would take even if they lost one of the embryos. they decided not to do that any longer because they found that technology had advanced and they wanted to make sure that they did not have multiple pregnancies. we are putting mother and baby at risk because we are talking about preterm infants and the risk to the mother to have a cesarean section. they looked at the numbers and found that even though they were doing the single embryo transfers, the risk of having twins or even triplets was still increased. what was happening? they found
out in the study. once they have planted it, the embryo was dividing into two, creating the identical twins. they traced it back to things that happened and some of the manipulation of the embryo from freezing to warming it, for example, oregon -- advancing it so that they made it more mature before they implanted it and they made minor changes that will help the embryo to embed itself in the uterine wall. all of the things are to help the single embryo make its way to become a baby. it also increases slightly the risk of also becoming a twin or triplet and even potentially a quadruplicate. >> how often do twins or triplets or more happened with one embryo? >> they divided it up. they wanted to find out how much it can happen with other things
that can occur. let's say that mothers and fathers naturally have a baby at the same time they have the single embryo transfer and that can create fraternal twins. they wanted to know how many are because of the fact that the embryo had been manipulated and they found that it was three times the chance that it would happen in a normal pregnancy. it is a small percentage like 1.3% in those women that got the single embryo transfers versus .4% in women that got pregnant naturally, but it is definitely a threefold increase. >> thank you for joining us. there is a warning out for people that are gluten-free. according to new research, a lot of gluten-free restaurant foods actually contain trace levels of gluten. the columbia university study is based on more than 5600 gluten testing done over 18 months. researchers determined that 27% of gluten-free breakfast actually contain gluten and at dinnertime, the numbers 34%.
risk increases later because of cross-contamination due to shared use of ovens which are used to cook food containing gluten. flu season is officially here and a new report shows that it could last longer in big cities including several in the bay area. a new report, researchers found that cities with a large commuting workforce tend to have longer more grinding flu seasons. the nationals institutes of health experts say that they can predict how bad the flu season will be by looking at early infection rates in big cities. the researchers noted that the risk for getting the roof the flu remains the same in all cities. continuing coverage of the breaking news. the resignation of you and ambassador nikki haley. we expect to hear from the president and nikki haley. we will bring that to you. the only gubernatorial debate between gavin newson and -- he says that he wants more debates. >> a closer look at the damage of a house fire in moss beach.
