I would of posted this on my In the news tab but because of the seriousness of this issue i decided to post it here. Not far from where i live a couple was arrested in the death of there 9 month old baby. Why? Because at birth the baby boy weighed 8lbs 4 ounces 9 months later he weighed 6 lbs 9 ounces.
The cause of death was determined to be Marasmus, a chronic undernourishment condition that occurs mostly in children. Marasmus is caused by a diet deficiency in calories and proteins.
