ADHD & Criminals: Drug Corporations Want To Create More Lifetime CustomersSubmitted by go213mph on Tue, 11/27/2012 - 14:07
A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. William Cooper, pediatrics and preventive medicine professor at Vanderbilt University, claims that Ritalin and Adderall (two pharmaceutical drugs used to treat ADHD) can prevent the mind of hyperactive children from becoming criminals. Cooper contends that these drugs should continue to be administered through adulthood to prevent criminal activity later in life.
Annually, Ritalin sales reach the billions and Adderall has unquestionably surpassed the once leading drug treatment for ADHD to become the drug of choice for pediatricians. However, doctors admit that the children “grow out of the symptoms of ADHD” and that none of the accepted pharmaceuticals actually cure the alleged disease.
Researchers, in keeping with the necessity for drugs to treat ADHD, claim that video games, television, and genetics are the causes of the “disease” while completely ignoring the chemical additives in processed foods that would be heightening a normal function in the neurological development of children.
