Proximuscentauri: Since all of you KNOW the reality but are covering for your own bad decision by making yourself of your poor kids addicts, should I even bother telling you that 'vagaries of translation' is obvious backpedaling. You simply use more words to describe the concept, idiots.No doubt you helpless and hopeless addicts will sneer at even THIS link saying it is untrustworthy. You'll say that about any information against your bad decision.http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/adhd.aspEven further, a quote from Jerome Kagan from the same snopes post.'That's correct; it is an invention. Every child who's not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: "It's ADHD; here's Ritalin." In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don't have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they'll make the corresponding diagnosis.Oh yea. Glockenspiel Hero, feed your addict kid and try being a farking parent.
ladyfortuna: 222 people in the study. Wow, what a good sample size of the population! Clearly that must translate perfectly to the ~15 million people who have been diagnosed assuming 5% of ~307 million in the US. Never mind the rising obesity rates across the board, that couldn't have anything to do with it./farktards.
Glockenspiel Hero: Geez, I could do with a little obesity for my ADHD kid. Stimulants are also appetite suppressants and it's tough getting him to eat enough. He's rail thin- weighs 20 pounds less than his "little" brother despite being taller
