Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is defined as a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination of all. Symptoms include failing to give close attention to detail or making careless mistakes in school work, difficulty keeping attention during tasks or play, not listening when spoken to directly, difficulty following through with instruction, easily distracted and difficulty staying in one place. All of these ‘symptoms’ are perfectly normal given the environment we have created around ourselves.
ADHD is considered to be the most common neuropsychiatric disorder of childhood with a rate of 7-9 percent. Many published articles in ‘credible’ scientific and medical journals have released information connecting ADHD to a dopamine deficit in the brain. Can we really trust this medical research? The same families and corporations that fund the American Medical Association (AMA) and it’s research are directly linked to the pharmaceutical industry. A multi-trillion dollar incentive to distort information and persuade professional perception through academia has always existed.
