Back break­ers?

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Comment -

ARE SCHOOL­CHILD­REN, in par­tic­u­lar small chil­dren, ex­posed to med­i­cal ail­ments from car­ry­ing heavy school bags on their backs?

I pose this ques­tion to doc­tors and other pro­fes­sion­als in the med­i­cal field. I would sug­gest par­ents who have ques­tioned this prac­tice share their ex­pe­ri­ences with your news­pa­per. This is one way of bring­ing at­ten­tion to what could be a con­cern to some par­ents and grand­par­ents. – AN­DREW BYNOE
