If someone gave your children a drug that stunted their growth, inhibited their brain development, and ultimately caused them permanent damage, what would you, as parents, do?
The answer, pardon the unintended pun, is a "no-brainer". It would simply be how civilized a response you would want to give the perpetrators, as to whether a cell or a tree would figure in the outcome.
Try the Pharmaceutical Industry, with the complicity of Main stream Media, Politicians and School Officials from Kindergarten on.
What's amazing is the National Institute of Health has published findings that show that such drugs as Ritalin and Concerta do the damage above and do nothing to actually change behavior.
MRI's show a difference in the brains of those treated for ADHD, alright...the NIH findings show slowed brain development which thousands of MRI's have confirmed.
Let's call these drugs what they are...speed. If you sell it on the street, especially to children, you can expect some hard time in an unpleasant place.
If you're Big Pharma, you enjoy years of record-breaking profits while the agencies created to protect us look the other way...doing so with the evidence right under their noses.
Once again, if anything is every going to get done, it's up to "We The People" to do it. Since, the problem is so embedded and the wrong doers have so much money to keep spinning the story in their favor, it won't be easy.
It's your children we're talking about, and regardless of the hype, you can't "own your ADHD"...it doesn't exist.
