Misinfo number one: Leon Eisenberg was not known as the father of ADHD. He was known as the father of prevention science in psychiatry. ADHD was first described in the 1700's and stimulants to treat ADHD was first described in 1937, when Leon Eisenberg was 10 years old.
Misinfo two: Eisenberg claimed the prevalence of ADHD to be overrated, he did not mean to say the disorder itself was not real. Eisenberg remarked that instead of prescribing a 'pill', psychiatrists should determine whether there are psychosocial reasons that could lead to behavioral problems.

Naturally, leave it to Natural News to print things of which the dead man cant comment on!

Naturally, that list of famous people who either have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, or have many of the symptoms of this disorder that suggest they may have had it would have nothing to do with the one dead man and that list itself of course doesn't provide each persons treatment of ADHD, either. Either way, Eisenberg believed ADHD to be real and in his opinion, felt psychosocial therapy might be a better choice, for some although it would have still included meds. His theory was some what flwaed however. Psychosocial is the result of victims of disaster, catastrophe or violence. The majority of those who have ADHD did not suffer any of those.
It's a great list, thanks for sharing it!
Vaccines Cause ADHD

Its not a disease, its a condition caused by vaccine ingredients. Psychology and psychology have labelled vaccine injured children ADHD and Autism because government and mainstream medicine protect PHARMA at all cost. They simply let this lie continue and it has become a commonly held belief even though its all a gigantic lie.

If "its all a gigantic lie" that ADHD and autism are not vaccine injuries, where is the scientific evidence for it being a lie, that the Winnipeg dummy has failed to provide in any of his hundreds of posts here. The truth is that no such evidence exists, and it is NOT a lie.

Yet more conspiracy theory/quackery sites from the Winnipeg dummy, but still no scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism, or that the autism rate in vaccinated kids is any different to the autism rate in unvaccinated kids.

If there had been any scientific evidence that vaccines caused autism, or that autism rates among vaccinated kids was higher than among unvaccinated kids, the Winnipeg dummy would have posted it here ages ago. It doesn't exist.

You are too much of an imbecile anyway. Anyone who says there's no evidence is a stooge.

As the Winnipeg dummy hasn't shown any scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism, or that the autism rate in vaccinated kids is any higher than in unvaccinated kids, then by his own definition he is a stooge.

The Winnipeg dummy's memory has gone completely, or is it that he chooses not to remember what he doesn't want to hear.

Child psychiatry is sick with hidden conflicts of interest

BY DR. LEONARD SAX

When I first began writing prescriptions for children 22 years ago, it was unusual for a child to be taking powerful psychiatric drugs. Today it's common. How did we get here?

Dr. Joseph Biederman is part of the answer. He's an important guy. His title is "chief of pediatric psychopharmacology" at Massachusetts General Hospital, the main teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. Pediatricians and family doctors look to him, and doctors like him, for guidance about what they should do with problem kids. For the past two decades, Biederman has pushed the use of medications for treating ADHD and bipolar disorder. Over the past two decades, the use of medications for treating those disorders has soared.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), recognizing how much influence Biederman has in promoting these medications for children, wondered whether the doctor might be taking money from drug companies. When first asked, Biederman admitted to taking perhaps "a couple hundred thousand dollars" from pharmaceutical companies. When he was asked to take another look, it turned out that Biederman and a colleague had accepted more than $1.6 million from the drug companies. And they hadn't told anybody.

Or consider the case of Dr. Fred Goodwin. After stepping down as director of the National Institute for Mental Health, Goodwin moved on to serve as the host of the NPR program "The Infinite Mind." Goodwin didn't think he needed to tell anybody that the drug companies were paying him $1.3 million, even as he reassured listeners on his program about the safety of powerful psychiatric medications for children. Last month, after his connections to the drug industry came to light, NPR canceled his program.

Or consider Dr. Charles Nemeroff, who was until just a few weeks ago chairman of the psychiatry department at Emory University. Between 2000 and 2007, Nemeroff pocketed $2.8 million in payoffs from drug companies. He never told anybody about it until a Senate investigation brought the payments to light.

Are the medications recommended by these opinion leaders risky for children? We don't know for sure. Researchers at Harvard have reported that giving medications such as Ritalin and Concerta to young laboratory animals results in those animals displaying a loss of drive when they grow up. There could be a similar phenomenon in our children.

I've seen many young men in my own practice who took these medications as children or teenagers and are now content, as twentysomethings, to live in their parents' homes, work a few hours a week at the coffee shop, and spend most of their free time playing video games.

Don't forget Paul Offit who claims a baby could handle 10,000 vaccines in one day. Someone call the guys in white coats, the lunitics who push pharma are running the asylum

Strattera from http://adhd-generics.info works great. I am able to focus and am able to do more tasks at once, which my job requires. I am now able to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time and read, write, and study for my college classes. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes forget to take my dose of medication. Other than this instance, I am able to function better as a person!
