The U.S. is getting closer to Third World Status
Too many babies being born too soon
Half a million U.S. babies are born premature each year, part of a worldwide problem outlined in a new report
Babies born in wealthier countries generally stayed in the womb longer.
But the rate of prematurity in the United States remains high, at more than 12 percent of live births. That’s about 5 percentage points higher than in Russia, China and Canada and similar to rates in Kenya, Thailand and India.
Some of the 500,000 early births in the United States each year can be explained by the increase in the number of women who opt to have children later in life or undergo fertility treatments — problems of a well-educated, health-care-rich country. Planned Caesarean sections also contribute to the numbers here, as do high rates of obesity.
But much of it also can be blamed on the same obstacles faced by pregnant women in third-world nations: no access to family planning and no care or inadequate care before and during pregnancy.
The authors of “Born Too Soon ,” a new report on premature births, stress that too many babies are born early worldwide and that prematurity rates are increasing in most places.
Disabilities in kids are increasingly nonphysical
Growing numbers of American families say they’re raising a child who has a disability, and the most-prevalent conditions are less and less likely to be physical disorders.
A report released yesterday by Princeton University and the Brookings Institution found that the top five chronic childhood conditions that limit typical activities are some type of developmental, behavioral or mental problem.
For much of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, the most-common cause had been respiratory disease. Now, asthma and breathing problems are No. 6, and deafness and orthopedic impairments don’t even make the list of top conditions.
“There’s been a fourfold increase in reported disabilities over the last 50 years,” Kahn said. “ To some extent, we think it’s absolutely real. But, in addition, we also believe there have been different (diagnostic criteria) and more reporting of these conditions.”
He and the report’s co-editor, Janet Currie of Princeton, said the nation lacks consistently collected statistics on childhood disability over time. That makes it “difficult to resolve the controversy over how much of the increase in disability reflects changes in incidence or changes in definition and diagnosis,” they wrote.
According to the report, more than 1 in 5 parents reporting a child with a disability in 2009 cited ADHD — attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder — as an underlying condition.
An additional 19 percent cited other mental, emotional or behavioral problems. Today, ADHD is nearly three times more likely than asthma to contribute to childhood disability, the report said.
And autism affects about 6 percent of all special-education students, up from 2 percent over the past decade.

Patricia Krentcil,Tanning Mom, Lashes Out At Critics. Patricia "Tanning Mom" Krentcil -- the New Jersey woman on trial for allegedly bringing her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning bed -- has sparked outrage across the country, leading at least one famous face to speak out about her frighteningly bronzed look. Krentcil spoke out about her critics. Krentcil's troubles began when a school nurse questioned Anna about her
sunburn and the girl allegedly said, "I go tanning with mommy." Police
investigated and charged the golden baked mom. On Wednesday, she pleaded
not guilty. Her husband defended Krentcil, saying that their daughter got a
sunburn from playing outdoors.
I'm not trying to make fun of this situation but truthfully this is funny , and someone needs to take away that poor little red headed little girl who would be fair complected and burn up like a piece of Bacon or something.
