ADHD diagnosis may be a lie

  • Many people are now falsely being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and doctors have begun to hand out way too many pills. Moreover, ads related to the disorder also create unrealistic expectations and target parents by saying things such as Adderall would inspire kids to study and to even take out the garbage. 

    "The numbers make it look like an epidemic," a doctor said. "Well, it's not. This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels." 

    According to scientists, the number of children affected by ADHD only amount to 5 percent but the CDC mentions that its 15 percent instead.
