Last October--and you are saying "Thanks Obama"? You are some very confused individuals! Let's revisit history--last October, President Obama was still Senator Obama--Pres. Bush was heading the train. But like someone else said--screw the kids. Who needs them right? Oh wait--if this is CafeMom, I would guess kids are pretty important. Why did it take this long? Could be the increases in health problems due to asthma, obesity, juvenile diabetes, etc...of course all of this is Obama's fault. I am sure Pill-popper Limbaugh or Sarah Failin will say so very soon and the right wing loonies will jump on board like what happened with the pretend euthanasia (yes I have read the bill and there is nothing like this in it) and Nazi comparisons. Pathetic creatures you haters and misinformed women who believe Chicken Large that the sky is indeed falling (well with the Perseid's right now, it may be!)

What is this going to prove?!
"Central to the study is the collection of data about the patients, including information prior to conception, from the deliveries of the babies, and all the way up to young adulthood"
Haven't there already been all kinds of "studies" on children across all socio-economic and cultural demographics--how they learn, what they're exposed to, how they turn out?! There have been dirt-poor kids who have grown up to become "rocket-scientists," and those who have had everything handed to them and they turn out to be "waste products!"
