Romanian Boy Fed On Bread And Lard Removed From Family

BREAD and lard never did the Britsh Empire any harm:

Romanian authorities have taken a seven-year-old boy weighing more than 100 kilogrammes (220 pounds) out of his parents custody so doctors can help him lose weight, officials said Wednesday.

“We’ve taken charge of him for an unlimited period. He’ll be put on a regime of strict diet and physical exercise by doctors” in a special care centre, said a spokeswoman for the child protection agency in the county of Botosani.

The boy, born to low-income parents who fed him mainly on bread and lard, was admitted to hospital two weeks ago suffering from respiratory and cardiovascular problems.

But he was warm, right..?
