And you wonder why children can’t learn!?

From “A rising hunger among children” from boston.com.

Doctors at a major Boston hospital report they are seeing more hungry and dangerously thin young children in the emergency room than at any time in more than a decade of surveying families.

Many families are unable to afford enough healthy food to feed their children, say the Boston Medical Center doctors. The resulting chronic hunger threatens to leave scores of infants and toddlers with lasting learning and developmental problems.

Before the economy soured in 2007, 12 percent of youngsters age 3 and under whose families were randomly surveyed in the hospital’s emergency department were significantly underweight. In 2010, that percentage jumped to 18 percent, and the tide does not appear to be abating, said Dr. Megan Sandel, an associate professor of pediatrics and public health at BMC.

While the rich get fatter. This is an atrocity!

  1. Dora, Its very clear what is going on here in America and I want to thank you again for your efforts to expose the truth. I am including the latest assault by the Dept. of Education on our children and their future opportunities. The DOE is giving a no bid contract to the thoroughly discredited Rupert Murdock to build a data base of student test scores and other data. This underscores the connections between Government agencies, covert operations, and big media. This is a war on every thing we hold sacred.
