650 Florida foster children, including some that are not under the care of a pediatrician, have been given mind-altering drugs. Drugs that have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use with small children.

The state Department of Children & Families naturally disputes the validity of the research. They always do when they're "caught out." They quibble with the findings by saying that "too few children were included in the study's sample." Such studies commonly use small samples of a subject group and that is a recognized, accepted method. This group studied 1,180 foster children out of 15,000 in state care. <br><br>More than half -- 652 -- were on at least one drug. Seventeen of the 652 were preschoolers.
