54% of American Kids Have A Diagnosed Chronic Illness
by Michael Suede • August 29, 2017

Here’s the stats breakdown.  Pretty shocking stats.
Beth Lambert discusses the state of chronic illness among children in America today. Some researchers are projecting that autism will impact 1 in 2 kids, 80% of boys, by 2025.  If we go by more modest models looking at the 13% growth rate of autism and projecting it forward, you still end up with 1 in 4 children by 2033.
Lambert notes that autism effects boys 4 to 1 over girls, which leads her to wonder how many boys will be left that don’t have autism or a neuro-behavioral disorder to carry on our society.
Lambert suggests inflammatory diets as being the link that’s causing the rise in all of these chronic childhood illnesses.  Animal products are the primary driver of inflammation in our western diets.
Be sure to check out Dr. Michael Kalper, Dr. Garth Davis, and Dr. Michael Greger’s lectures as well.

Results: We found a diverse group of children who suffered with serious, multiple chronic conditions, and who accessed comprehensive, multidisciplinary care. Most children had neuromuscular conditions (54%), cardiovascular conditions (46%), and cancer (30%). A majority (56%) had multiple CCCs. Children with CCCs received comprehensive care including hospital inpatient (67%), primary (82%), ancillary (87%), and other acute care services (83%).
According to the U.S. Surgeon General, about 20% of American children suffer from a diagnosable mental illness during a given year. Further, nearly 5 million American children and adolescents suffer from a serious mental illness (one that significantly interferes with their day-to-day life).
Which Mental Illnesses Are Most Common in Children?
Children can suffer from the following mental illnesses:
  • Anxiety disorders: Children with anxiety disorders respond to certain things or situations with fear and dread, as well as with physical signs of anxiety (nervousness), such as a rapid heartbeat and sweating.
  • Disruptive behavior disorders:Children with these disorders tend to defy rules and often are disruptive in structured environments, such as school.
  • Eating disorders: Eating disordersinvolve intense emotions and attitudes, as well as unusual behaviors, associated with weight and/or food.
  • Elimination disorders: These disorders affect behavior related to the elimination of body wastes (feces and urine).
  • Affective (mood) disorders: These disorders, including depression, involve persistent feelings of sadness and/or rapidly changing moods.
  • Schizophrenia This is a serious disorder that involves distorted perceptions and thoughts.
  • Tic disorders : These disorders cause a person to perform repeated, sudden, involuntary and often meaningless movements and sounds, called tics.
  • ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder): Children with this disorder are hyperactive and have trouble controlling their impulses and paying attention. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder in children.
