The Drugging Of Our Children

Post by Admin on Thu Jul 28, 2011 12:24 am



In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD
or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the
impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave
little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or
environment. Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is
often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet
to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic
drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents
that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia,
loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially
fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia. And yet, despite
these dangers, many school systems actually work with government
agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who
refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home
unless they cooperate.

This is so sad. One lady had to move to Canada in order to escape the mandatory drugging of her child.

Quote from University of Utah Genetic Science Learning Center

"Recent animal studies suggest that children who are mistakenly diagnosed with ADHD and treated with Ritalin may be more likely to develop depression as adults. This can be explained by Ritalin's effects on the reward pathway.


We know that Ritalin increases dopamine levels in the brain. But an unnecessary increase in dopamine during childhood may change how the brain develops. The brain may become desensitized to natural rewards like food, romance and social interactions, leading to depression."

And the worry about homeschool kids having social problems. This is yet another reason why my son will not be put into public school. So many parents rely on the school system to take care of our children for us and all the school system wants to do is make every child behave the same way. EVERY CHILD IS DIFFERENT. It has made me sad for a long time that this is going on. When I was in high school I was put on Cylert which is a slower acting form of Ritalin. My mother was alright with me being on this medication knowing that even in the late 1990's that there was debates about whether Ritalin was safe. With my experience on this drug I will never let my children take any psychotropic drugs and I will teach them what I have learned so that when they have children they will know the truth about these dangerous drugs and choose not to put their children on them.

You've hit the nail right on the head. This is one of the reasons the public schools are so against homeschooling. They (our children) may learn to think on their own.......and you know they can't have that. {sarcasm}
