Could ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) be a fictitious disorder?
And is it possible that it is nothing more than a fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction?
ADHD drugs are increasingly prescribed to treat hyperactivity in pre-schoolers in the UK and a number of educational psychologists say they know of children being given medication despite guidelines advising against it.
The story is similar in the US where it has been revealed that toddlers can be prescribed amphetamines including, Ritalin, Adderall, and other ‘ADHD medications’ legally.
About 10,000 toddlers are now known to be taking these drugs, despite the fact that the American Academy of Pediatrics do not have any guidelines for prescribing amphetamines for children below 4 years old. It can be expected that at such a young age, children will quickly develop a dependence on these drugs.
The study lead by researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital, the Department of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and several other institutions, concluded that the clinical trials for drugs approved as “treatment” for ADHD were not designed to assess adverse events or long-term safety and efficacy.
According to the information given in the study, two thirds of the 6.4 million American children (including 10,000 toddlers) diagnosed with the alleged ADHD are nothing short of a fraudulent life-threatening drug experiment.
Harvard psychologist Jerome Kagan, one of the world’s leading experts in child development, stated “Let’s go back 50 years. We have a 7-year-old child who is bored in school and disrupts classes. Back then, he was called lazy. Today, he is said to suffer from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Every child who’s not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: “It’s ADHD; here’s Ritalin.” In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don’t have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they’ll make the corresponding diagnosis.”
So it is looking more likely that the alleged deathbed confession of Dr.Leon Eisenberg was true. Known as the “scientific father of ADHD”, in the last interview that he gave before his death at age 87 in 2009, he said “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.”
