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.
