(NaturalNews) It's no secret that, increasingly, Big Pharma, in cahoots with traditional medicinal practitioners, have created a society of near-zombies with all of the mood altering medications they push on the public. But even these figures are shocking.

According to recently published information from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an astounding 20-plus percent of all 14-year-old boys in the United States have been diagnosed, at one time or another over the course of their lives, with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - a condition that is, of course, treated with dangerous medications.

As reported by CNSNews.com:

The study also said more than 20 percent of 11-year-old boys had been diagnosed with ADHD at some point in their lives.

The study indicated that American boys were 125 percent more likely than girls to be diagnosed with ADHD, and that boys were 127 percent more likely than girls to be medicated for it.

13.3 percent of American 11-year-old boys are being medicated for ADHD, said the study.


That's incredible; one in five American teenaged boys have been "diagnosed" with this "disorder."

'It highlights the consistent increases in ADHD diagnoses since 2003'

But it gets worse; according to the CDC's study, the percentage of U.S. children between the ages of 4 and 17 years who have been labeled with the diagnosis rose to a mind-boggling 42 percent between 2003 and 2011.

In addition, the study found that kids in public health programs like Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) were 53 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than children with private health insurance. So not only are too many kids being diagnosed with this "disorder," but you're paying for it.

"The parent-reported prevalence of a history of an attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) diagnosis by a health care provider among U.S. school-aged children increased from 7.8 percent in 2003 to 11 percent in 2011, an increase of 42 percent in less than a decade," said the study, which was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

"This study is really based on the parent-reported survey data and it extends what we know about the increasing prevalence of health-care-provider diagnosed ADHD," Susanna Visser, of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, said in a CDC podcast.

"It highlights the consistent increases in ADHD diagnoses since 2003," said Visser, who was one of the authors of the study. "Now we also document that there's been significant increases in the percentage of kids 4-17 years of age who are taking medication for ADHD since 2007."

Tens of thousands were surveyed

The ADHD diagnosis is not evenly distributed among the nation's children, the study also found.

"Ever-diagnosed ADHD was more common among children with health care coverage than those without coverage, and among those with public coverage than with private coverage," it said. "Nearly 1 in 5 high school boys and 1 in 11 high school girls had been diagnosed with ADHD."

Continuing, the researchers said, "Estimates of medicated ADHD increased in 2011, as compared to 2007, particularly among teen boys. In 2011, the highest medicated ADHD prevalence was among 11-year-old boys (13.3 percent)."

Researchers at the CDC based their conclusions on the National Survey of Children's Health, which was conducted in three phases - in 2003, 2007 and 2011. The survey interviewed a random sample of tens of thousands of parents, including 95,677 in the final 2011-2012 phase. Each was asked about one child in their family.

Among the questions asked was whether a physician or other healthcare provider had ever informed the parent that their child had ADHD, and whether the child was currently taking medications for the condition.
