Our Anne Dachel puts out daily reports from around the world about the decline of pediatric health including the sharp increase in mental health problems. "Worrisome" is an understatement used by US News (no friend to autism or vaccine injury) designed to keep the panic low. We don't panic, we don't have that luxury. We will sound the alarm. A Presidential alert would be nice too. Insert eye roll emoji here. The lack of concern from the White House following promises that have disappeared into the ether is.... worrisome.
