Clever marketing but there's no science ; Letters [Western Daily Press (UK)]
(Western Daily Press (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Media attention is again focusing on the dangerous psychiatric drugs being prescribed to children and adolescents after they have been diagnosed with the disorder called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The quantity of drugs being consumed has hit the headlines, when the real story is the fact that so many of us have been taken in by psychiatric propaganda that ADHD is a real condition. While it cannot be denied that some children can be argumentative, boisterous and disruptive, psychiatry's fixation on labelling these difficiulties as a disorder is not only unscientific but medical fraud.
The problem is there's no test and there's no exoneration. ADHD has never been proven to exist, so it follows that a recent report claiming to detect brain waves associated with so-called ADHD is just more slick psychiatric marketing. The same goes for the chemical imbalance theory. Clever marketing but no science. The psychiatric profession has manoeuvred itself into a powerful position by claiming ADHD exists, while deceiving others that it is real, and making a handsome profit out of it.
After 26 years, psychiatrists and their researchers are still looking for the psychiatric Holy Grail to justify drugging young minds. The deceit will only continue if we don't do something about it.
