The ADHD Fraud
How Psychiatry Makes ďPatientsĒ Out of Normal Children

The fascinating thing about Adderall is that it was a weight reduction drug for adults called Obetrol. Itís was so extremely addictive that Obetrol was taken off the market for that reason. Now we have the FDA bringing this extraordinarily addictive drug to market for little children. [Interview Aug 2005/6 DR. FRED BAUGHMAN] ADHD fraud and the chemical holocaust against a generation of children
"The American Academy of Pediatrics, along with the other groups I just mentioned, served notice that they intended to enter the business of diagnosing and drugging entirely normal children for profit. Thatís one of the things that has spurred the epidemic. [Interview Aug 2005/6 DR. FRED BAUGHMAN] ADHD fraud and the chemical holocaust against a generation of children
There is no such thing as a psychiatric expert in any psychiatric disorder that is not wholly owned or operated by the pharmaceutical industry. [Interview Aug 2005/6 DR. FRED BAUGHMAN] ADHD fraud and the chemical holocaust against a generation of children
Theyíve got M.D. degrees and so they masquerade as scientific physicians but they have sold their souls and they have sold whatever scientific credentials they ever had.
Iím working with individuals to put together a consumer fraud
suit here in the state of California, based on fraudulent diagnosis of ADHD and subsequent drugging.
If youíve been lied to and told you have a disease when you donít and then drugged, thatís battery.
Itís so much more than a fraud when they actually poison normal children, which is what
They have taken entirely normal children
and made patients out of them by diagnosing them with fictional chemical imbalances of the brain.
Itís a total fraud.
the media has bought into this psychiatric disease mongering, and thatís why
it is rampant. Thatís why the drugging of our children is rampant.
In a 2002 survey done by the American Academy Of
Child and Adult Psychiatry, they looked at the surveying practices of child psychiatrists and found
that 91 percent of children seeing child psychiatrists came out of their initial visit with a prescription
for a drug..........I would say that a third to a half of all the patients I saw as a
neurologist had no organic disease. Now contrast that with this 2002 study survey of child psychiatry,
where 91 percent are coming away with a prescription. Were the 90 percent commonsense parents?
I pointed out earlier that itís not just psychiatry, but its pediatrics, neurologists, family
practitioners, psychologists, and school teachers across the country that have become pawns and are not
seeing the evil of their ways by becoming pushers for the drugging establishment. This is the standard
of practice across the board. The entire profession has been bought out. On average, every physician in
the country gets $13,000 per year from the drug companies.
They get free dinners, golf, free trips, but that money isnít spread around equally. It
is spread strategically so that your top policy makers in medicineóyour top psychiatrists and your
heads of departmentsóget more money than anyone else. Some get about $500,000 a year, and it
has been so successful that no one within academic medicine can speak out as I speak out. I knew a
long time ago I would not prove compatible with the sort of control from above that is the rule in
We are drugging well over 10 million. There is
no sign that itís getting better. I pointed out that ADHD in adults is a rapidly growing market sector,
so I think when you are told youíve got a disease and you are in fact normal, you are damaged just by
the label. When you are given a drug to normalize an abnormality in your body or brain that doesnít
exist, thatís poisoning and you are going to be damaged by that drug every single time. So the side
effect rate for Ritalin or for Adderall is 100 percent. There is no kid that gets put on these drugs that
isnít altered by them. Their perceptions, behaviors, feelings and emotions are always changed and not
always noticeably. They are always altered and there are horrible long-term consequences that we canít
begin to know.
I testified in a Kansas City case for Mr. Gary Bell on behalf of his daughter
Stephanie. She underwent heart surgery for what I think was a complication of her long-term Ritalin
use. At any rate, Gary Bell and I did a freedom of information request for all the deaths and injuries
related to Ritalin or methylphenidate, and for 1990-1997 there were 160 deaths from methylphenidate
Ritalin. There were another 26 deaths for 1998 to 2000, 186 deaths for the decade.
These are voluntary reporting schemes to MedWatch, 1 percent of actual incidents the
FDA says. That means there may have been 18,600 for that decade. I have personally been consulted
in about a dozen death cases, including Matthew Smith of Royal Oak, Michigan, which is just outside
of Detroit. He and his parents had been coerced to keep him on Ritalin from first grade to age 13.
He suddenly fell over while playing with friends and died. At autopsy, his heart muscle was diffusely
enlarged, scarred and infiltrated with fat. The medical examiner, Dr. Drakovic, a highly experienced
pathologist, said there was no doubt in his mind that Matthew Smith died of long-term chronic
amphetamine methylphenidate Ritalin poisoning.
That is probably a low yield for Teen Screen. I would think that more of these screens
would have a 60, 70 or even 80 percent positive diagnostic rate like the adult ADHD screen run by
New York University at one of the Helmsley Hotels. As long as theyíve got enough friends in Congress
and in the White House to write these things into law, theyíre going to carry on. Teen Screen is very
much a product of the White House. The Presidentís new Freedom Commission on Mental Health
launched the notion of Teen Screen.
They are not asking parents
whether or not they want their kids screened. This is Big Brother to the max. This is worse than
anything Stalin could have imagined. This population had better wake up; the implications go far
beyond the drugging of our normal school children.
