Youth Suicide Rate Increased 56% in Decade, CDC Says
QU'EST-CE QUI DÉTRUIT LA NOUVELLE GÉNÉRATION? Internet? Smartphones? La culture de l'image et de l'illimité? Les réseaux "sociaux" et les ingénieurs du chaos qui les architecturent? Incertitudes quant à l'avenir de la planète et de l'humanité? Dégoût vis-à-vis d'un environnement entièrement modifié par les délires du profit? Des parents qui perdent leur crédit en imposant des valeurs consuméristes nuisibles pour la santé des populations?

Suicide and homicide rates have increased in recent years among young people in the U.S., according to a new federal report.
The suicide rate among people ages 10 to 24 years old climbed 56% between 2007 and 2017, according to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The rate of homicide deaths decreased by 23% from 2007 to 2014 but then increased by 18% through 2017.
Violent death, including homicide and suicide, is a major cause of premature death for the age group. Around 2010, the death rate of suicides among adolescents and young adults surpassed the rate of homicide deaths, according to the report.
“The chances of a person in this age range dying by suicide is greater than homicide, when it used to be the reverse,” said Sally Curtin, a statistician at the CDC and an author of the report. “When a leading cause of death among our youth is increasing, it behooves all of us to pay attention and figure out what’s going on.”
