Drugging of Our Children, The

“In the early 90’s there was a huge spike in children being diagnosed ADHD and subsequently being put on Ritalin. At that time, several things happened. The Federal Government awarded schools more money based upon more children being diagnosed ADHD. And also for low-income families, if a child is diagnosed ADHD and put on Ritalin, the family received a lot more money monthly.” –Patti Johnson

In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment. Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia. And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate.
