Consider just a few of these repeated warnings about infant mortality:
Why are so many infants dying in America, the wealthiest nation in the world? Well, for many reasons. But, according to Dr. Aaron Carroll at the Indiana University School of Medicine, "Deaths in the postneonatal period are due, in large part, to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)... and accidents. Moreover, they seem to occur disproportionately in poor women." Speaking about a recent study, Dr. Carroll writes, "One suggestion made by the authors, with which I agree, is that we consider programs of home nursing visits to reduce the incidence of SIDS and accidents."
Hmmm, in addition to building new hospitals, operating health clinics, delivering immunizations, making diapers for low-income families, improving nutrition, etc., guess what else the New Deal did?
