William B.Carey testified: “What is now most often described as ADHD…appears to be a set of normal behavioral variations … This discrepancy leaves the validity of the construct (ADHD) in doubt.” With the ADHD epidemic having sky-rocketed to 4-5 million, the Consensus Conference Panel concluded: “ ...we do not have an independent, valid test for ADHD, and there are no data to indicate that ADHD is due to a brain malfunction.”
Four additional MRI studies have been published. All, you guessed it, utilizing “treated” ADHD subjects, all affirming, time and again, that Ritalin/amphetamine “treatment” causes brain atrophy, not that ADHD is a disease.
With the ADHD epidemic at 6-7 million today, most of them “treated,” there is still no proof that ADHD is a disease, and, of course, absolutely no objective means of diagnosing it.
“The single, biggest heath care fraud in US history (is) the representation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to be an actual disease, and the drugging of millions of entirely normal American children.”
