Our children now suffer from formerly “old folks” diseases like obesity, diabetes, and cancer, as well as learning and behavior disorders.
One sixth of the American children have behavioral disorders such as: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Autism, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Tourette’s Syndrome, along with generalized aggression and violence. Many others suffer tummy troubles, allergies, asthma, and other autoimmune and chronic ailments.
Too many kids now take medications; with even our “littlest” ones prescribed powerful mind-altering pharmaceuticals to manage mood and behavior. This is frightening, economically devastating and bankrupting healthcare systems.
