The Father Of ADHD Calls Himself A Liar

"ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease."

These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the "scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)," in his last interview before his death.

Leon Eisenberg made a luxurious living off of his "fictitious disease," thanks to pharmaceutical sales. Coincidentally, he received the "Ruane Prize for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Research. He has been a leader in child psychiatry for more than 40 years through his work in pharmacological trials, research, teaching, and social policy and for his theories of autism and social medicine," according to Psychiatric News.

Yes, it was even admitted that they are his THEORIES. The medical industry is using the guise of helping children to depersonalize and disconnect our children from a healthy, normal upbringing. Parents are placing their children on these drugs and subjecting them to what the world has to offer, when in fact all these children are looking for is their parents in hopes of being the blessing that God intended them to be.

In the United States, 1 out of 10 boys among 10-year-olds takes medication for ADHD on a daily basis … with increasing tendency. And with the help of Teen Screen surveys in public schools, they are attempting to set up the student for the fall.

American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others reveal the facts in their study "Financial Ties between DSM-IV Panel Members and the Pharmaceutical Industry." They found that "Of the 170 DSM panel members 95 (56 percent) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry. One hundred percent of the members of the panels on 'Mood Disorders' and 'Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders' had financial ties to drug companies."

And they are reaping major benefits off of this "fictitious disease." For example, the assistant director of the Pediatric Psychopharmacology Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School received "$1 million in earnings from drug companies between 2000 and 2007."

Marc-André Gagnon and Joel Lexchin, a long-time researcher of pharmaceutical promotion, performed a study which shows that the U.S. pharmaceutical industry spent 24.4 percent of the sales dollar on promotion, versus 13.4 percent for research and development in 2004. That is almost twice as much money on pushing their drugs on the people than research to make sure it is safe!

This raises the following question: Are they safe?

Read the antidepressant black-box warning for yourselves, and you will be alarmed by the side effects listed on the inserts:

  • Confusion
  • Depersonalization
  • Hostility
  • Hallucinations
  • Manic reactions
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Delusions
  • Feeling drunk
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Homicidal ideation

Why would any parent subject their children to drugs with such dangerous side effects?

Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, in 1998 stated, "ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction."

The "attention deficit" lies in the responsibility of the parents, not the child. Scripture tells us that the parent is to "train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6)," not the other way around.

To take it a step further, the video below explores what is being overlooked – namely, the alarming studies linking antidepressants to mass murder:

    Well as far as anyone can tell all liberals are psychotic they aren't born that way but in due time they become delusional they start to see things that are not real and that which is real they whole heartedly reject with out ever realizing that they have done it yet they will take known false hood to the next life not because they believe it but because of who they are it's on automatic, now in the schools first and second graders being told to cross dress because this way they will know how the homo. thinks and feel they are one in the same and they will defend it in to their next miserable life the only way to combat this sickness is to do what you know is right and try not to argue with them. It's like Eric holder and the lady at IRS they have not done any thing wrong.

    I am looking at a lot of misinformation, disinformation, anecdotal reports. This subject is too important to be contained in one article. If you have been told to medicate your child, do your own research. Just read the internet websites for Wiki, webMD, etc for the dosing information, possible side effects and what to look for. Read 'The Bipolar Child' by the Papolos to understand why stimulants and anti-depressants MUST not be given to a child with Bipolar Mood Disorder and how to tell the difference between that and ADHD. (Short version, if the kid spaces out and can't focus it's ADD, if he blows up and throws a desk it's probably a mood disorder).

    Some ADHD meds are cheap to make, expensive to buy and get the Doctor a KICKBACK. (Adderall probably is on that list).

    • Misinformation? disinformation? Why? when I grew up in the 1960's and 70's there was no ADHD no ADD & children were taught responsibility and self control,
      there were no mass shootings in schools..... why is it that since this so called diagnosis of ADHD or ADD things have changed so dramaticly? What studies have been done before prescribing these drugs to children on the long term effects of these drugs on the developing brain of a child? Are these drugs responsible for creating the monsters these people who want to shoot up or bomb schools? I think these drugs are doing more damage than good... in the late 70's or early 80's the term going postal was coined after postal employee's had gone to work and shot co-workers..... these people were being treated for depression with Prozac..... please don't tell me these drugs didn't play a part in this or that they are safe....
      you are right people need to ask questions, need to do their own research, and educate themselves on how much over prescribing is going on.... these drugs make life easier for the teacher but what is it doing to the child? we don't want to end up warehousing kids till they graduate to become good worker drones..... and
      what is prescribed shouldn't steal their childhood....

  3. this is a great profitable plan for the medical profession.
    They can claim the kids are ADHD, put them on Schedule II, highly addictive drugs...then when they are addicted...they can profit off them with 'Chemical Recovery Programs".

    • disqus_v3SHzvCspj says:

      They can be psychologically addictive and abused when overdosed. Not so when dosing is controlled and little titration is necessary when coming off it. Stats I've seen indicate that kids who were on Ritalin tend to not abuse it later on.
      Rule of thumb, if it's the right med it will work at a low dose.

    • disqu_v3SHzvCspj,
      where are you getting your stats? "Stats you've seen indicate that kids later on don't abuse Ritalin...
      Do you know that kids are selling their Ritalin at school....for $5. a pop? Do you think they are concerned about the right doses? We're turing them into drug dealers..
      There is a psychological addiction ....even if not overdosed. that's why it's called a Schedule's addictive....physically and psychologically....

  4. Look up SSRI stories.

  5. Not only that but going off some of the meds quickly instead of gradually be weaned off of them can cause Neuro Malignant Syndrome. I had a friend who decided on her own to cold turkey quit her meds, I warned her against doing so and told her she needed to be weaned off slowly as major side effects could occur. Well she did so anyways. Her body temperature went out of control, her brain swelled and she ended up with a brain bleed. She is not the same person now. She now seems frantic all the time. She only wants to sleep and is constantly drug seeking for medications to knock her out so she doesn't have to deal with her frantic feelings that she can't explain. She was an adult when she went through this. Just think if a child mouths those meds, but doesn't really swallow them because they don't like the way they feel on them. Could they have similar types of side effects? Granted there may be some people who need medications if they have chemical embalances, but I think a lot of people put boy children on meds simply because they can't deal with boys being boys. I think this is because a lot of single parent households are run by women having to take on most of the responsibility of working, home and raising children all by themselves and boys being boys full of energy just may be more than they can handle at times when they have so many responsibilities. I mean the Dads may be contributing monetarily (or maybe not), but often they are not there to deal with the physical and emotional requirements in rearing of children on a daily basis in many (not all of course) single family household. I know my husband raised his son on his own for 6 years and even had me read a book called The Strong Willed Child when we started dating, because he recognized that his own son was strong willed and a hand full at times. He didn't however put his son on meds to make it easier for himself. I think family counseling is better than medications in most instances where family's can learn to communicate and where parents can learn to set parenteral bounderies as a team, even divorced parents can learn these skills and not set up one parent to viewed as the bad guy by the child.

    My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed 2 years ago with Sensory Processing Disorder. Many children are misdiagnosed with ADHD and actually have SPD. My daughter does have other problems such as Anxiety Disorder and OCD and is showing signs of Tourette's. I have no intentions of putting her on any mediction now or in the near future.

    Towel saying that mental healt problems are not real has never experienced anything with it or known anyone that has. My daughter was born that way. I wish I could take it away from her. Please be sensitive before spouting off ignorance.

    • disqus_v3SHzvCspj says:

      Bravo, you have done your homework.

    • Dear Sportsphotogirl,
      Notice that the title of this is the author of ADHD is saying this is that ADHD is a lie, but if you want to believe that your precious 5 year old has all these problems , well, that's your privilege. How would anyone know that a 2 year old has SPD? Whats' the criteria? OCD? Tourettes? At 5!
      Are you sure you're not disease hunting?
      I hope no one is spouting off ignorance to you, trying to convince you your child is heavy laden with disorders....that would be tragic.

    • Sportsphotogirl says:

      SPD is Sensory Processing Disorder. She showed signs early on. Luckily, I was in tune and able to get her help. She is doing much better with the help of Occupational Therapy. My daughter could hear sounds that no one else could hear and often covered her ears, her clothing was torture to her, she is a sensory seeker, meaning she crashes into people and objects to get sensory input. She also can spin for eternity and never get dizzy. She cannot eat certain foods, because the texture repulsed her and she gags. She has poor muscle tone and has trouble gripping a pencil. A e is excessively ticklish and begs to be tickled.

      She has been evaluated by one of the best Developmental specialist in the country, Weisskopf of University of Louisville. My daughter has very difficult social anxiety that has become so overwhelming that she has panic attacks. Her OCD is in the form of hoarding. She "collects" trash that she picks up from the floor. She has a compulsion to pick it up, she as to pick it up.

    • Sportsphotogirl says:

      I wish she didn't have these things. We is precious and it is difficult to watch her go through it. I can't believe that people like you, Dorothy, with your holier than thou attitude can sit back and judge me as a mother. I am trying to help this little girl, my child, the best way I can. I'm not drugging her up, but we deal with ways to help her relax. Help her cope with what is going on. D your research and save your judgements for someone else.

    • I'm not "holier then thou"....and I'm not "sitting back and judging you as a mother"....I'm judging the psych field...of which I'm a member and yes, I do warn of "diagnosis"...that is questionable.

      I'm sure you must know that SPD is subject to controversy ...and the American Psychiatric Assoc. recently rejected SPD as a diagnosis to be included in the recently updated DSM-5 and requested additional studies be done before the disorder can be recognized..." I know about Sensory development..and sounds like your daughter needs and is learning new skills for expressing sensory-motor, they will no doubt have he doing social stories and PECS (Picture Exchange)

      I used to teach pre-school and I've seen lots of kids "crash": into things...they think it's funny...or they get a "charge" out of it...and yes, they LOVE the ATTENTION...and laugh...or look stern...and look to see what kind of reaction they'll get...., is NORMAL for them....yes, they want more attention then others do...I consider them to be very bright! Very wanting to know...challenging the "system"...I don't see them as Disordered...I don't think twirling around for sensorial purposes
      as disordered....but rather their own way of being...and they can learn other ways of gaining attention and satisfying their need for sensorial input. Have you ever read for the works of Carl Jung...or taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator? he talks about various types of people..."thinking vs. feeling, intuition vs. sensation, and also perception vs. judgement.
      Perception leave the door open for new ideas and experiences, Judgement shuts the door...and is systematic...quick decisions...I suggest you open your mind to the idea your daughter has her own of being...and is learning more you are...and that she is not "disordered"...but has her "perception" of life different....and I don't know what you consider "trash" or does a 5 yr old know what is considered "trash'...could that be your own "perception"....

      I'm saying this to allievate you from judging your own child in a negative she doesn't go through life thinking there is something horribly wrong with she has a elephant trunk to sense things with....or antenna's "different is different"?
      All the best of goodness to you...sincerely..I do mean that...

    Psychiatrists are just medical school students who couldn't stand the sight of blood.

    • disqus_v3SHzvCspj says:

      There is some truth to that. There are however children who need some medication to function. If he gets zombiefied it's TOO MUCH.

  8. joelsk44039 says:

    My grandson and granddaughter have both been diagnosed with ADHD. Without his medication, the boy would be uncontrollable and completely off the wall. With his meds, he is an honor student and doing great. When he stays with us occasionally overnight, we see his personality and behavior "before" and "after" his meds. "Before," he's jumping around like a crazy person, "after," he's quite normal.
    I think that most of the comments made in response to this piece were made in total ignorance of the facts and reality concerning ADHD.

    • disqus_v3SHzvCspj says:

      Yes BUT: Ritalin/Dexadrine in their original form were 4 hour meds. There are
      longer lasting alternatives now where the behavior differences are not so dramatic.

  9. Our oldest was diagnosed with ADHD (he is adopted) and they prescribed adderall and something else, but he was either always moody or a zombie so we took him off of it. It was the best thing for him. A stable family environment and a good diet goes a long ways toward a child learning to focus and concentrate and be productive.

  10. It's no coincidence that Melana ZYLA Vickers wife of Michael G. Vickers, the Asst Sec Defense for Intelligence has become a supposed expert following her stints studying at John Hopkins followed by southeast Asia Affairs at USID,and a collaborator with the Heritage Foundation. Five daughters don't make her an expert on ADHD, even on motherhood or reporting for USAToday.

  11. Psychiatry and psychiatric drugs are the 2nd biggest fraud ever put over on mankind! the first is Obamao!

  12. As a health consultant, I have said for years, these conditions are fantasies and do not exist. I change diets, living environments, and VOILA!, normalcy returns. Putting anyone on any antidepressant is stupid as they lead to further depression. Ritalin and other similar drugs have led many on to more serious drugs. However, Big Pharma likes the money spent on these drugs and their very serious side effects. Too bad this man waited to just before his death to come clean. I have found psychologists and psychiatrists in general are among the most mentally disturbed and are in their professions trying to find a way to help themselves. They do sooo much damage, these professions should no longer be allowed to be attained.

  13. Not to mention it fits in with the agenda of international communist. Read the goals of the American Communist Party as reported to Congress in 1963!

  14. Amen brother! Follow the money every time!

  15. In a liberal's mind :

    " We slaughter babies all the time, why wouldn't we test drugs on 'em too?"

  16. Let kids be kids. Far to many of our teachers, teachers who made the choice to teach children, can not handle the fact that kids will be kids. They prefer to teach zombies.

  17. Absolutely, parents fight against giving your children any medications that can affect their brain. My grandson was diagnosed with ADHD and medication was suggested. I said NO as did my daughter. Yep, he is still a little hyper but does well in school and has a loving family. Drugs are the easy way out for parents.

  18. The 'doctors' diagnosed my son with ADD, when he was young & prescribed ridilin (sp?). After seeing how he was downed out by it, I only gave it to him before school, to help calm him down.
    As an Adult, after a lifetime of drug abuse, he spent time in jail, for making his own methamphetamines.
    One bad thing led to another & he finally hung himself, after his girlfriend kicked him out.
    I blame the 'system'.

    • I am so sorry for your loss. To bad you could not have home schooled him where he would have gotten individualized attention. I have a nephew that was hipper active and he was put on ridilin. His mom and dad were more interested in TV then loving their son. He also had other problems and they teachers like it that he did nothing being on ridilin. I would take him on vacations with me when he was young and I would not give him the pills. With the pills he would pick on himself, the floor, and seats. That was more annoying then the activeness without. On the pill he did not want to do anything just pick. After a couple days the pill went though his system and he began to look around and see things. We visited lots of pet stores. He was a hand full but delightful. I finally got a leash and put it on him when we were where I thought it might be dangerous. At one time, I was offered to adopt him and his parents changed their mind. I taught him to write his name and he still knows how at 31. He may not be a genius but he is smart if someone would just take the time to find out. Seems the caretakers he is living with want to keep him on drugs, his mom keeps him of drugs. He is a loving man. As this article says, they are just being children. The government would rather dope them up then to allow parents the right to spank them.

    • Im so sorry for your loss. It is a known fact that the younger people are introduced to things like alcohol and sex, the more likely they are to have addiction problems. Giving children brain chemical altering drugs are crimes against humanity. Criminal!

    • Barbara J Power says:

      And my grandson is so ADHD, he cannot function in society without medication. He simply cannot slow down enough to think. Many times these kids get addicted because amphetamines help them to slow down enough to be in control. Unfortunately, once the using goes past the therapeutical, addiction comes quickly and takes over.

    • My grandson also has ADHD. Without it he cannot focus on what is being taught in class. ADHD is something in the brain not working right. Look it up and do some research.

    • Hello Mary,
      Something is not working well, so true. With kindness, I share that parents have other solutions to choose from. When I did a thesis on colitis, I found a pile of books from doctors that said diet did not play a role and another pile of books from doctors that said it did. From my experience the diet and home environment do have a role in a child's brain function. Just removing wheat helps many.
      There are healthy solutions to a child's behaviour, etc.

    • standupwarrior says:

      So sorry for your loss! As a single mom, back in the day, I was pressured by friends to give ridilin to my son. I know how scary it is to navigate the system!


    • ...Sorry, GDC97, that comment seems a little overly generalized to be provable. You don't have to look very far before you can find several mental health professionals to prove you wrong---including me. Not all pharmaceutical companies are attempting to get their gain no matter what their products do to the public, and no one I know in the mental health industry is purposely trying to poison anyone or cause pain and suffering. It may be that you know things "instinctively" and can tell when something is bad for you. But, most educated people rely on studies and professional investigation--which are slow to complete and even slower to be reported. You can help by finding studies that explain the dangers of unnecessary medications and sharing with your own doctors and other professionals in a calm and logical manner what you have learned.
