Kids In Crisis
Alarming numbers of American children are incapacitated by poor health. Millions are afflicted with diseases considered uncommon less than a generation ago. Obesity is at epidemic proportions while the numbers of children with asthma, type 2 diabetes, and ADHD continue to rise. The word autism is familiar because the condition is no longer rare.1 Poor health is prevalent among young people at the highest levels in our history. The situation is so bad that many children’s health profiles actually parallel those of their grandparents. Tragically, there are no indications of reversals in the trends.
