BIG MONEY BEHIND ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER (ADD) AND RITALIN

BIG MONEY BEHIND ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER (ADD) AND RITALIN

Singer Health Reports Vol. 1 Issue 68

Between 1972 and 1995, the National Institute of Mental Health gave nearly $73 million to psychiatrists to research “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.” This research money comes from Federal, State and County governments. The majority of the money ($38 million) was spent between 1991 and 1995 – more than the total awarded between 1972 and 1990.

Coincidentally, for the same period (since 1990), the production of just one psychiatric drug used for “hyperactivity,” Ritalin, rose 500%, with some classrooms now having between 20% and 50% of their students on this drug alone.

Teachers in one state “tested” children for ADD without parental knowledge or consent, evaluating from a psychiatric chart whether a child was suffering from this. All the data was given to a nearby psychiatric institute to evaluate which children were “at risk” and therefore needed psychiatric drugs as treatment.

This shows an alarming link between “research money” and the development and sales of Ritalin.
