The end of the Second World War saw the beginning of the Baby Boomer years (1946 - 1964). Everyone was having babies, and the vast majority of children in North America were doing very well.
They certainly had better health than what is seen in children today. Things like childhood cancer, asthma, adult onset diabetes in children, obesity, life-threatening food allergies, autism and that whole spectrum of disorders were rarely seen. It's astonishing how things have changed in just 70 years.
we are in the midst of an epidemic of childhood illness
It's almost impossible to believe, in our modern world with every convenience and plenty of food, that the health of our children is in extreme peril.
