Item description for Suffer the Child: How the Health Care System Is Failing Our Future (Capital Ideas) (Capital Ideas) (Capital Ideas) by Lidia Wasowicz Pringle...

Antidepressants causing adolescents to commit suicide? Vaccines triggering autism in healthy babies? Stimulants creating a nation of cookie-cutter children? Old cures leading to epidemics of chronic disease? Suffer the Child digs beneath the headlines to expose a health care system burdened with uncertainties and sagging with shortfalls that are shortchanging our children's health. Based on a 15-part UPI series and written by an award-winning investigative reporter who interviewed more than 200 physicians, policymakers, parents, children's advocates, educators, drug developers, public health, and medical specialists, "Suffer the Child" looks at all the challenges affecting our children's health, from a failing health care system to an epidemic of new problems like autism and obesity. More importantly, it examines ways we can overcome them, as most of the experts agree that a massive multi-faceted campaign is called for. More than in any previous generation, today's parents must be proactive in protecting and promoting their child's health. This book is their comprehensive reference to the issues we face in caring for our children's health and the system we once trusted to protect and cure them. Topics include: emergency care standards, ADHD, alternative remedies, antidepressants, boys, causes of mental problems, causes of physical problems, diagnosis of mental problems, drug monitoring, drug safety and effectiveness, drug side effects, ethical questions, girls, infectious disease, medical errors, mental health screening and statistics, mixing medicines, off-label drug use, OTC drugs, pharmaceutical company conduct, policies and protocols, prevention of mental ailments, prevention of physical ailments, psychotropic drugs, research, safety issues in hospitals, stimulants, treatment of mental ailments, treatment of physical ailments, vaccines.
