CDC: More American Young People Dying by Suicide, Homicide


From CBS News: “‘Recently, in the last few years, they’re both trending upward. Suicide began to turn upward earlier, in 2007, and now in 2014, homicide turned around as well,’ said Sally Curtin, an NCHS statistician. ‘These are leading causes of death, and they both are increasing now.’

The suicide rate for young people aged 10 to 24 rose 56% between 2007 and 2017, with the pace increasing of late, the researchers said.

Suicide deaths increased 7% annually from 2013 to 2017, compared with 3% annually between 2007 and 2013, the investigators found.

Meanwhile, homicide deaths among 10- to 24-year-olds rose 18% between 2014 and 2017, after nearly a decade in decline, the researchers said.”

  1. Here’s an idea. End the mass psychiatric drugging of our children, with drugs known to cause suicidal and homicidal behavior, even according to the black box warning on the label.

    Oh, but the “mental health” workers, doctors, and pediatricians can’t, because “it’s just too profitable.” Now I know why Jesus supposedly said, during my drug withdrawal induced “super sensitivity manic psychosis,” that “all the doctors are going to hell.”

    “Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t, warn you.” Stop psychiatrically drugging the children!
