American children are identified as victims of child abuse, but this number could be woefully underestimated considering how many cases go unreported and unrecognized.  According to a new study in the Journal of Pediatrics, part of this problem can be attributed to the lack of attention to pharmaceutical-related abuse.  Researchers discovered an alarming number of incidents involving young kids purposely receiving inappropriate doses of substances, enough to warrant bringing awareness to this dangerous abuse. In addition to sedatives, some of the most common drugs used as a form of abuse included antidepressants, antihistamines, and pain killers.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
