Lack of Sunlight and Sleep Could Lead to ADHD


ADHD rates are on the rise in the United States, especially among children.  In fact, it is the most common mental health issue in children today, with nearly 7% of children receiving this diagnosis.

Doctors are trying to figure out this conundrum and are exploring the affects of the “3 S’s.”
  • Sunlight
  • Sleep
  • Screens
In a recent study from the Ohio State University, it showed that states with less sunlight...
...had higher rates of ADHD.  They’re also looking into the affects of sleep deprivation and time spent viewing the screens of electronic devices.

Take a look at their study here, and let us know what you think.  Could those late nights watching movies and playing video games be hurting our kids?
