Baby anxiety

A poll for Prima Baby magazine says that 57 percent of women are 'obsessed' with their child's health. The editor suggests this borders on over-protectiveness. Given these comments, you could be forgiven for thinking that Prima Baby won't be devoting page after page to ill-considered health panics, then.

And yet on the front page of their website, we find an article entitled Making the Invisible Killer Visible. I wonder if there is any connection between the blanket coverage of health issues in the media and the rise of these obsessive tendencies?
