Dr Oz: Hunger Harms Children’s Health
Doctor Oz spoke about Hunger in America’s Middle Class, and then introduced Dr. Meggan Goodpasture, a pediatrician with the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Dr. Goodpasture stated that in her profession, they saw more families that had difficulties providing basic needs for their children, including food. One afternoon, Dr. Goodpasture and her colleagues attempted to physically find food for 2 different families. She saw this issue on a daily basis. Dr. Goodpasture is a mom of 2 boys and couldn’t imagine the stress these kids had to go through. In her profession, she often heard of terrible diagnosis and tragedies, however, hearing about hungry children was just as horrifying.
