Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Tackles Subject of Condoms For Kids

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, discusses the controversial topic of providing condoms to kids.

NEW YORK, NY – May 6, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website arguing that we need more condoms for kids programs across the country. Dr. Veronica explains her opinion in her blog, titled “Condoms For Kids.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “A Philly survey exposed that 25 percent of 11 year-olds in the area have already had sex. More children in the city of brotherly love (ironically) have sex by the time that they turn13 than in any other city in the US. The program doesn’t mean that Philadelphia wants more kids to have sex; it means they want to stem a growing problem and prevent more STD’s from spreading and more unwanted kids from being born. The kids are having sex anyway, and they’re having sex NOW. Should nothing be done?”

“I think it is a great idea for a community like Philadelphia, overwhelmed with high poverty, a high teen pregnancy rate, and a high rate of STDs to be proactive when it comes to curbing this problem. Sex is happening at a very young age at a very high rate in these communities.  Of course we must think about protecting the lives of these children first,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
