Drugs are NOT the Answer

Drugs, drugs, drugs, just take a drug for it, that's the american way right? Unfortunately, all drugs have side effects. 
Kids (and adults) who are getting the right nutrients will not get constipated. 
The amount of kids taking medication for constipation is insane and it's usually something that can be fixed relatively easy though dietary changes, chiropractic adjustments, magnesium, veggie shakes, etc.
I usually don't post articles that are not backed by research, however I just think it's absolutely ridiculous how many kids are taking multiple medications for things that could easily be fixed through lifestyle changes.
The defense for this article will be "There is no published research showing MiraLAX can cause neuropsychiatric problems" 
My response would be
1. Why are kids taking MiraLAX in the first place?
2. ALL drugs have side effects eventually.
3. When enough parents start making the same claim, you just haven't done the right research study yet to prove that it's true.
4. Every person has a different metabolic makeup, and research will never be done on every single person taking a medication. So to say that it can't cause a problem is a lie, because unless you study every person you won't know for sure.
