The 2 sets of growth charts differ in that the CDC charts represent a growth reference based on the general US population in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s. 15 WHO growth standards, on the other hand, represent growth of children in select settings around the world with optimal feeding practices, among other factors. 26 Recent decreases in the prevalence of obesity have been reported in some populations of youth in the United States.

Yet, statistics released in September of 2010 by the United Nations place the United States 50th in the world for maternal mortality � with maternal mortality ratios higher than almost all European countries, as well as several countries in Asia and the Middle East.1, 2 Even more troubling, the United Nations data show that between 1990 and 2008, while the vast majority of countries reduced their maternal mortality ratios for a global decrease of 34%, maternal mortality nearly doubled in the United States.1 For a country that spends more than any other country on health care and more on childbirth-related care than any other area of hospitalization � US$86 billion a year � this is a shockingly poor return on investment.3, 4 Given that at least half of maternal deaths in the United States are preventable,5 this is not just a matter of public health, but a human rights failure.6 The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that �every human being has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including medical care and necessary social services�.7 This means that the United States health care system must provide health care services that are available, accessible, acceptable and of good quality.8 In addition, the health care system must be free from discrimination, must be accountable and must ensure the active participation of women in decision-making.

Among adolescents, no consistent association was found between SES and overweight for boys, but low-SES adolescent girls had a much higher prevalence than their medium- and high-SES counterparts (20.0 percent vs. 14.2 percent and 12.9 percent, respectively). What is left, then, is a continuation and perhaps acceleration of the Latino politics that has emerged since the extension of the VRA in 1975: incremental growth in the electorate accompanied by an increase in the mass recognition of a shared Latino policy agenda (encouraged by continued elite efforts to form a Latino political community).
