Breeding Little Monsters:  How Day Care is Exposing America's children to Unnatural Plagues by Bryce Christensen,  www.profam.org, June 2002 Even some of the more innocuous day care spread diseases pose the risk of dangerous complications.  Ear infections contracted in a day care center often require the placement of drainage tubes (tympanostomy tubes) in the inner ear.  Ear infection results can also result in mild hearing loss with consequent difficulties in psychological and social development.  The Hemophilus influenza type B virus often spread in the day care center usually causes relatively little harm, but in some cases it leads to epiglottitis or childhood meningitis.  And although the cytomegalovirus (CMV) poses no risk to the day care children who pick it up at significantly higher rates than do home-reared children, pregnant mothers with day care children are exposing their unborn children to an elevated risk of CMV-related birth defects affecting vision, brain development, hearing and neuromuscular functioning.

Breeding Little Monsters:  How Day Care is Exposing America's children to Unnatural Plagues by Bryce Christensen,  www.profam.org, June 2002 Researchers offer a good overall measure of the overall severity of day care-transmitted disease when they report that the hospitalization rate for day care children stands at four-and-one-half times that seen among home-reared children.

Breeding Little Monsters:  How Day Care is Exposing America's children to Unnatural Plagues by Bryce Christensen,  www.profam.org, June 2002 To be sure, day care is not the first social institution in which physicians have seen frequent outbreaks of disease, but the social institution to which physicians now find themselves turning for epidemiological parallels to what they see in the day care center is deeply troubling.  In a 2000 study of Streptococcus pneumoniae, French scholars perceive a fundamental similarity between the way disease spreads in a day care center and the way it spreads in an orphanage.  This medically derived parallel receives unexpected confirmation from the distinguished cultural historian Jacques Barzun when he puzzles over the curious social developments that have given the modern world "two novelties:  the day care center and the semi-orphan."

Breeding Little Monsters:  How Day Care is Exposing America's children to Unnatural Plagues by Bryce Christensen,  www.profam.org, June 2002 The trouble is that neither day care providers nor medical authorities can do very much that will help.  One medical authority resignedly concludes that the spread of disease is inevitable in any context that brings together large numbers of diapered, toy-sucking, drooling, messy-eating children.  This authority sees no way to prevent germs from being transmitted in an environment in which the typical day care child puts "a hand or object in the mouth every three minutes."
