The Sickest Generation!

The following are the current frightening statistics:

  • 1 in 4 children are obese. (Int’l Journal of Obesity)
  • Nearly 50% of obese adolescents remain obese as adults. (Int’l Journal of Obesity)
  • About 6% of elementary school children and 7% of adolescent children miss 11 or more days of school yearly due to illness (CDC National Center for Health Statistics)
  • 7% of school age children are diagnosed with ADHD. (CDC)
  • In the last 20 years, Type 2 Diabetes has increased 10-fold (1000%). (Int’l Journal of Obesity)
  • By the age of 12, an estimated 70% of our children have developed the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries. (Bogulusa Heart Study)
  • Today, children 5 years old and younger are the fastest-growing segment of the non-adult population prescribed antidepressants in the U.S.
  • Children as young as 4 have attempted suicide while influenced by such drugs and 5 year olds have committed suicide.
  • Between 1995 and 1999, antidepressant use increased 580% in the under 6 population and 151% in the 7-12 age group.
