Honey, what's wrong with him/her?"
This is where the most common excuses are utilized:
"I don't know, it must be ADHD, or these raunchy television programs, or all that modern music, or all these damned violent video games and movies. Lets blame all those, because it certainly isn't our fault at all!"

The focus of Stamets' research is the Northwest's native fungal genome, mycelium, but along the way he has filed 22 patents for mushroom-related technologies, including pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas.

Consider this: Vit D is primarily made through sunlight on the skin. But the government says staying out in the sunshine is a bad thing as you get skin cancer.
they say staying out for extended periods of time without any sunscreen is bad. Very different from the way you summarized it.
Take a look at what children or even parents have to do to allow for their children to have say a bike, in some places if the child does not have say all sorts of safety gear, the parents can't give their child a bike. The kinds of exercise that a child would normally get for being a child is no longer there. Parents can't really be parents, can't discipline a child, cause then you have the goverment involved. Don't spank the child, or it may cost you in the way of time, money and a criminal record. And what is even worse the CPS know this, and will often prosecute the parents, even when children lie about what all happened.

I think the problem is cultural, with perhaps a dash of enviromental pollution.
