More kids being poisoned by prescription drugs, study finds

A new study published today in the journal Pediatrics says the number of children being accidentally poisoned is increasing as doctors are prescribing more medicine for adults.

The number of children poisoned by medication rose by one-third between 2001 and 2008. During the same time, the number of adults taking more than one prescription rose by ten percent. The study found a strong correlation between the increased poisoning among children and the rise in adult prescriptions.

you can blame the doctors for being the pill pushers and blame the adults for not keeping the pills in a safe where children can get their hands on them

Why would parents want to keep meds in a safe where children can get their hands on them????

The prescriptions are FOR the children!
Sugar is the main culprit in the ADD epidemic. Yet, instead of advocating your child stay away from sugar, (pretty simple) they prescribe pills to keep them 'settled'.

And lack of exercise! Kids today spend too much time watching tv and playing video games instead of being outside using their imaginations.

I assume you have evidence of this. Could you show the indictments since it is against the law?
