Mass amounts of American children and being diagnosed with a possibly fictitious disease; even worse they are being prescribed addictive and lethal drugs for it.
The ‘disease’ is known as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The disease is said to be a common behavioral disorder. It is said to affect over 10% of school age children. It is characterized by the inability to direct one’s complete focus and concentration on one thing at a time. It is also often characterized by excess hyperactiveness. If you were to ask me, I would say that children are hyper and energized naturally. Of course, the average child isn’t going to be enthusiastic about taking a math test, and chances are you’re probably not going to get their full attention either.
Children are hyperactive, this isn’t new information to us. Thousands of years ago they didn’t feed children Methamphetamine’s when they weren’t focusing on their academics. The disease itself isn’t what is scary – it is the medication they are prescribing to kids. The brain of a child is rapidly developing, so anyone could assume that it would be unsafe for a child to be taking a drug that is essentially meth. After all, that is pretty much what it is. The most commonly prescribed drug to ADHD patients, including children, are Methamphetamine’s. The drug poses extreme overdose and addiction risks too.
Withdrawal Effects of Methamphetamine’s

- Decreased appetite
- Delayed growth
- Headaches and stomachaches
- Rebound (irritability when the medication wears off)
