    There is a major problem with these so-called 'sick' American kids. Their parents.

    Ditto on RJ's comment.

    Coincidentally...I had severe allergies/asthma as a child, spent a great deal of time in hospitals under oxygen tents and was allergic to just about everything, including myself and had to have injections 3x per week. As soon as I got away from my parental units PRESTO, no more allergies.

    I suspect all the crap like growth hormones and antibiotics used on factory farms might have some bearing on some of the problems but I do think rushing kids to doctors where they get on the medication merry go round is asking for trouble. We are told to think there is a pill for everything.
