Between 1994 and 2003, a forty-fold increase of bipolar diagnosis occurred among youth ages 0 to 19. It has likewise been estimated that up to 10% of American children have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, despite there being neither a medical test for ADHD nor proof that it has any biological component.
