I read about this yesterday and just cringed when I saw that kid! 
 
Maybe it's just me, but if some student exchange organization told me I  
couldn't email or contact my kid while he was in EGYPT for heaven's sakes, I'd  
have just said "No..you aren't going there."
 
And I'd also have done a LOT of research about the culturer and the  religion 
of the people he was staying with, and would have been aware AHEAD of  time, 
of the dietary restrictions.
 
The parents were asleep at the switch, and their son almost died because of  
it.
 
Now you watch them sue AFS for a bunch of money....and win.
 
That poor kid!
