ADHD is now a $9B business

[quote]Over the past twenty-five years, diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have skyrocketed to the point where America is medicating five percent of high school-age children — some 3.5 million kids, up from 600,000 in 1990. The New York Times takes an in-depth look at the industry that fueled the huge rise in prescriptions, exploring how marketing turned a once-obscure disorder into a $9 billion business.[/quote] -TheVerge This is sad, obviously some people do need the meds and therapy, but for others it's just a stage of life. When I was 13 I ran around the house beatboxing and stomping my feet, but I grew out of it.

    This ADHD thing is one of the biggest scams ever and to make matters worse, it's -blam!-ing up kid's lives. All this is is terrible parenting and the flood of bullshit propaganda being shoved down everyone's throats and where the majority of the population is to -blam!-ing stupid to figure it out for themselves. Granted there are some people who have real ADHD, but that's like 1% of the entire population. Real parents are hard to come by now a days as they are too self absorbed with their own selfishness. They sit on Facebook gossiping like they're still in high school instead of being a parent. I have no doubt parents now a days love their children, but I think the majority also see their kids as an inconvenience. Kid throws a temper tantrum; the only thing most parents think of now a days is, [i]"what material thing can be purchased to make the kid stop crying?"[/i] Parenting is so ass backwards now a days, it really is disgusting and pathetic. There is such thing as hyper children. This doesn't mean they have a disorder. Instead of parents actually parenting their kids, they turn to government and whatever other bullshit to solve petty issues. [i]"Help me, help me, my child is acting out. What should I do?" [/i] Doctors prescribe bullshit medication that does nothing for a kid and now the parent is happy because he/she doesn't have to do the job of being a parent. Now they can go back to doing their own selfish personal activities instead of performing the most basic function as a parent, paying attention to their kid.
