Parents can take an active role in preventing the risk of breathing disorders in children by reducing the family's exposure to smoke filled environments.
We all want to give our children every advantage in order to make their lives healthy and successful. We enroll them in the best schools and programs to give them the best start we can. Yet, as a family doctor, I often face parents who either refuse or delay vaccinating their children, claiming they are acting in the best interests of the children.
What do your kids do when they come home from school? If they are like the majority of Canadian children today, they grab a sugary, fat-laden snack, then plop themselves down in front of the TV for most of the evening. As a result, we have a growing problem on our hands: Canadian children are getting fat!
