Surely in this day and age doctors know better than to give amphetamines to primary school children and they should be allowing kids to simply grow out of their childish behaviour as they develope and mature naturally. What is natural about SPEED ? It is pure poison and probably one of the most unhealthy things you could give to a growing child. It even stunts growth for gods sake. The only people to benefit are greedy pharmaceutical companies!
Hi, couldn´t agree more with you. My 7 year old has adhd and for the past 2 years the doctors have been trying to convince me to use ritalin even though he has a very small hole in the heart from birth. In Spain you pay 128 euros for 30 tablets but it can be as much as 270 for the highest dose for 30 days supply,although in Spain you only pay 40% it still works out a lot over a year or two. Sounds like the farmacuetical companies have a nice little earner,no wonder they want kids to take it!
Your answer my fellow friend is in this video" YOU "and "EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE" . It's called "THE MARKETING OF MADDNESS". It's pretty long but really insightful you DO NOT WANT TO MISS A SEGMENT. Really GOOD stuff to know NOT JUST OPINION but COLD HARD FACTS FROM THE PROS. Check it out whether you're for or against meds. like Ritalin.
Other than that my answer would only be my person opinion and it is this if "THEY" REALLY wanted everyone to get well they would do more extensive studies or research on how to improve natural alternatives that don't have serious side effects which would really help people with ADD/ADHD, buuuUUT I guess the FDA's clients "PHARM-COMPANIES" would'nt be too happy with thaaat.
Also check out this segement on "ABC NIGHTLINE w/ David Graham" and tell me if you can connect the dots on the relationship with what drugs they are talking about and the relationship with ADD/ ADHD drugs.
PS It's funny how we have always said to ourselves "One person can make a difference!" , BUT YET, when that person does come along he/she is always scrutinized. Have we not learned anything from the things we see day after day, year after year scandal after scandal? Just because something has always been doesn't mean it's always RIGHT. Have we become a desensitized people over time that we no longer care for others although we give the impression we do when a child comes up missing or something similarly troubling, but we sit silent and hardly say or do much when they are being put on meds that can do more harm than good. Do we no longer have a JUSTIFYABLE sense of GOOD judgement?
