on the face of it this looks to be a total over reaction.
but lets think about this one slightly deeper, that child will not eat the food prepared by the mother as it simply doesnt like it, now, that is very bad for anyone, calorific intake is ESSENCIAL TO BEING ALIVE!
the doctors have told her basicly " Look, your child will not eat your food, give it something else"
the story used the phrase "junk food" with little thought... what are they classing as "junk food" ? As that is not stated here. What is stated is that the doctors told the woman to give her child some food which contains HIGH calories for the simple reason that we need colories to give our body energy, without that we die, and this child is not eating and thus has no calorific intake and is in danger of becoming malnurished!
one thing to remember, esspecialy if you have been on ats a while... their are ALOT of people out their who think their holyier than though thinking and way of life is the absolute best way to live, never mind doctors or science... fact is if the child did not eat something ... ANYTHING ... It will die, yet the parents seem to think "screw that, i dont want him eating what we think is crap... its healthfood or nothing"
this is YET ANOTHER story which is blown out of proportion!
This is STATE CONTROLED MEDICINE folks! Be ready to defend yourself.
