Shocking new health statistics for the new normal in American kids – should we be worried?
About 1 in 88 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network.
The new Autism:
ASDs are almost 5 times more common among boys (1 in 54) than among girls (1 in 252)
About 1 in 12 people (about 25 million) have asthma, and the numbers are increasing every year.
About 1 in 10 children (10%) had asthma and 1 in 12 adults (8%) had asthma in 2009. Women were more likely than men and boys more likely than girls to have asthma.
Rates of parent-reported ADHD diagnosis are increasing and the patterns of ADHD diagnosis are changing in the United States. We now have 5.4 million children who have been diagnosed with ADHD. That is nearly one in ten school age children with an ADHD diagnosis; a million more children than were reported in 2003. Of these children, 2.7 million are currently taking ADHD medication.
Or are they just hyperactive kids?
