Or is it because they're born into such poverty and such a culture where change is impossible because, by the time they're old enough to even realize a change is needed, it's already too late?

This is unfortunate and happens too much -- even in this country. With an attitude where you hear words like "impossible" and "too late" that guarantees change won't happen. That's probably the majority attitude in that type of environment.

A minority percentage of that population will make it out of there to live very successful and healthy lives. Every once in while you'll see a news story about those successes. Why not recognize those positives? It is possible to make a change for the better, even in the most dire circumstances.
