'The diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is 15% in high school children, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control. The number of children on medication for this disorder has risen from 600,000 in 1990 to 3.5 million today. Is this epidemic of children using psychostimulant drugs real or manipulated?
According to Dr. Kevin Conners, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Duke University, and one of the doctors who lead the fight to legitimize ADHD in the 1970′s, this is not an epidemic.
The numbers make it look like an epidemic. Well, it’s not. It’s preposterous… This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels.
