In his last interview at age 87 in 2009, Leon Eisenberg, a child psychiatrist in America, psychiatrist social and medical educator, also known as the “father” of ADHD, said “ ADHD is an excellent example of a fictitious disease .”
Although some believe that the statement by Dr. Eisenberg was an “exaggeration,” a number of medical experts say the disorder Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is actually often “over diagnosed” as a result of practices vague diagnosis. This is clearly explained by Harvard psychologist Jerome Kagan, one of the most renowned experts in child development in the world today:
“ Let’s go back 50 years We have a 7. year-old who gets bored at school and disrupts classes. at that time, it was called lazy. Today, is said to suffer from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)…. Every child who does not it is doing well in school is sent to a pediatrician and the pediatrician says, “is ADHD; here’s the Ritalin . “As a matter of fact, 90% of these 5.4 million children have abnormal dopamine metabolism. Unfortunately, doctors diagnose whether a drug is available to them.
according to Psychiatry News , this “ fictitious disease ” helped Eisenberg make a great living by pharmaceutical sales. he even received the “ Ruane Prize Children’s psychiatry Research. He has been a leader in child psychiatry for more than 40 years through its work in pharmacological trials, research, education and social policy and for his theories of autism and social medicine . “
Unfortunately, the medical industry made great use of his theories and instead of really helping the needy children who actually worked towards depersonalization and off children in a healthy and normal education. parents usually choice but to put their children on these drugs are left.
10 Surprisingly, only in the US, 1 in 10 children aged is on medication for ADHD in a base Regular daily. and this trend is constantly increasing.
According to the American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and his fellow colleagues in their study “ financial links between DSM-IV panel Members and the pharmaceutical industry “” members of the 170 DSM panel 95 (56 percent) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry. One hundred percent of the members of the panel on “Mood Disorders” and “Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders’ had financial ties to pharmaceutical companies.”
Indeed, doctors are benefiting greatly from their collaboration with pharmaceutical companies. Just for an illustration, the deputy director of the Unit of Psychopharmacology Pediatric at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of psychiatry at the Medical School Harvard professor won “$ 1 million in profits from drug companies between 2000 and 2007 . ”
the results of a study by Marc-André Gagnon and Joel Lexchin, researchers from pharmaceutical promotion revealed that in 2004 the US pharmaceutical industry spent 24.4% of sales promotion , compared with 13.4% in research and development. In other words, they spent twice as much money to manage their medicines to people than the amount spent on testing the effectiveness and safety of these drugs.
The question whether these drugs are safe for use remains.
These are the side effects listed on the labels of antidepressants:
– manic reactions
– suicidal ideation
– Loss of consciousness
– feeling drunk
– alcohol abuse
– homicidal ideation
Why would a parent choose to submit your child to drugs with such dangerous side effects
In the words of Dr. Edward C.? Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 1998, member “ ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction .”
