Could ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) be a fictitious disease, 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 Paediatrics 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.
A major study revealed that ADHD drugs have never been proven safe or effective – yet literally millions of children have been prescribed ADHD drug “treatments”.
The study lead by researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital, the Department of Paediatrics 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 paediatrician, and the paediatrician 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 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.”
Which means that millions of young children today are being needlessly prescribed severe mind-altering drugs that will set them up for a life of drug addiction and failure.
As explained by The Sons of Liberty host Bradlee Dean, who also writes for The D.C. Clothesline, ADHD was merely a theory developed by Eisenberg. It was never actually proven to exist as a verifiable disease, despite the fact that Eisenberg and many others profited handsomely from its widespread diagnosis. And modern psychiatry continues to profit as well, helping also to fill the coffers of the pharmaceutical industry by getting children addicted early to dangerous psychostimulant drugs like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts).
“ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction,” said Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, back in 1998 about the phony condition. Adding to this sentiment, psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Sami Timimi, both of whom oppose pathologizing the symptoms of ADHD, say that ADHD is more of a social construct than it is an objective “disorder.”
Psychiatric profession all about generating obscene profits for Big Pharma
The purpose all along for pathologizing ADHD symptoms, of course, was to generate more profits for the drug industry. According to the citizen watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), roughly 20 million American children today are taking dangerous, but expensive, psychiatric drugs for made-up behavioral conditions like ADHD. And another one million or so children have been blatantly and admittedly misdiagnosed with phony behavioral conditions for which psychiatric medications are being prescribed.
“Remember, there are two ways drug companies can make money: Invent new drugs, and invent new diseases already invented drugs can treat,” writes Dr. Jay Parkinson, M.D., M.P.H., about the fake disease-creation industry. “In the past decade or so, Big Pharma has created no less than 10 new novel drugs per year,” he adds, noting that many of the people who have been told they suffer from ADHD actually suffer from “the consequence of bad design,” meaning a conventional social and educational system that is unable and unwilling to recognize unique individuality.
This is definitely true for Jacob Barnett, the 14-year-old autistic genius whose mother was told that her son would probably never read or write. Today, Jacob is already working on his Master’s Degree in quantum physics while most of his peers are still in junior high. He is also currently developing his own original theory in astrophysics, according to recent reports.
“The psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry spends billions of dollars a year to convince the public, legislators and the press that psychiatric disorders such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, etc. are medical diseases on par with verifiable medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease,” explains CCHRI. “Yet unlike real medical disease, there are no scientific tests to verify the medical existence of any psychiatric disorder.”
