Doesn't really matter what

the cause is though.

I think the increase in ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, Autism, etc. is probably related to something we're eating, drinking, or breathing. I have no proof... just a gut feeling. But regardless of what is causing these symptoms, I am firmly convinced they are real and not all merely cases of "boys being boys" as some would have us believe.

I see a noticeable difference in the behaviors of my two sons. One I can agree is just being a boy, but the other has underlying issues that cause these symptoms.

I hope we (people) figure out the cause of these so we can stop whatever is causing them. Until then, there are treatments that appear to help. Whether or not the treatments have side effects that are worse than the disease remains to be seen... as with most things in modern medicine.
