Nov. 9 — The latest report by ABC Australia’s Mark Willacy examines how children’s growth has been stunted in the shadow of the Fukushima meltdown.
Willacy’s Fukushima coverage has been consistently informative and well done. Unfortunately, this segment is based on the premise that the children’s lack of weight gain is attributed to lack of appetite from a sedentary lifestyle.
However, one only needs look at America to see the problem with this logic, where inactive children are struggling to not be overweight.
Listen to the report here.
