Backpacks

Today I want to bring to the attention backpacks and the amount of weight carried by kids going to school. Lets say the average text book weighs 4 lbs. If a 12 year old child weighing 100lbs is carrying only 3 to 4 texts books in a backpack on his back or shoulder that can mean up to 15% of his body weight is displaced and putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the child’s spine and nervous system.
