ADHD drugs greatly decrease academic performance in children, study finds

***Fund raising - Well, as I suspected this new venture I am on has a training period and then a period of selling and only after its all said and done, you get paid.  I am still in training, but its actually surprisingly good and the company is highly ethical and employee supportive so I have high hopes on this, but until I can get that first pay check, I knew I might have to do fund raising one more time.  Soooo, here I am again asking you to donate to help meet the deficit of $350 by the first of the month.  

I am confident that next month will be different.  Truly, I believe this to be the case.  I honestly think I will do well at it.  So help me get there so I don't have to do this asking/begging again.  If you appreciate the work we do and it has been of benefit to you, then we ask that you help us out by donating at the Pay pal button off to the right of this blog.  Thank you for all your support and God Bless you and yours for this coming new Year.  

Vatic Note:  I thank my lucky stars that these drugs and this disease was not around during my time in School or I would have definitely been put on the drugs due to my hyperness and so called lack of concentration or attention. In reality, I was bored.  LOL  There are no drugs that kill boredom.  Teachers would also get mad if I asked too many questions, especially after I got an answer, it would trigger another question, then I would be in even more trouble.

 You can see the foundation of my research habit, since I wanted to know "everything".  I had the highest grade point average in the history of the private school I attended,  but the worst grades in behaviour and effort.   My mother would go to school and ask how those two things could be so diamentrically opposed, in scoring, and yet, result in such high level grades academically, and they could not give her an answer til my third grade teacher figured it out.

Now, this is just my opinion, but when you look at GMO seeds, that change our DNA, and you look at the dumbing down of our education system under control of the Federal government, which makes us 39th globally, where we were once 2nd in education in the world, when it was controlled locally by parents, teachers, administrators and school board elected locally,  here is what I see!!!

We know they not only intend to depopulate us, but are already having enormous success in both killing off the old people, but likewise sterilizing the young people so birth rates have dropped dramatically to where the elderly dying outnumbers any replacement through births, of our population.   The next agenda was to dumb down those remaining so they would simply accept their condition as slaves and not resist the dictatorship and dark ages, they have planned for us.

This is another way to accomplish that goal.  Dumbing down is central to the changes that need to take place, along with DNA manipulation that would make such dumbing down permanent and irreversible.   I can't prove this, but there are too many "provable" coincidences to make that leap in conclusion.  Deductive reasoning, if you will.  Read and see what you think.   Once these kids are off of these drugs, they do not feel normal and turn to illegal drugs to feel normal.  That is a Bush mafia plan for filling the pocket books, while achieving the agenda.

After dealing with druggies, lately, I can assure you, this plan works.    

ADHD drugs greatly decrease academic performance in children, study finds

Children who take mind-altering medications like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been shown in a new peer-reviewed study to perform worse in school than if they weren’t taking the substances at all.
Researchers from Princeton University, Cornell University and the University of Toronto found that the administration of these drugs to children, which is supposedly to help them remain calm and focus in class, actually leaves students at a deficit when it comes to paying attention and learning in a formal academic setting.

These shocking findings, which were published recently in the Journal of Health Economics, reveal that increasing the use of stimulants isn’t helping children any more than loading them up with anti-psychotic medications helps them think more rationally. Once again, pharmaceutical drugs are shown to harm the normal thought process and inhibit natural human cognition.

Back in 1997, some rules changed in the Canadian province of Quebec that made it easier for people to access prescription drugs. In the 10 years following this change, the number of children taking stimulants in Quebec more than doubled, with an astounding 44 percent of Canada’s ADHD prescriptions now going to the province.

This massive increase made for an easier time studying the outcomes of ADHD drugs in children, the results of which are sure to surprise many parents. Based on the researchers’ work, children on ADHD drugs fared slightly worse than other children and were far more likely not to finish school without having to first repeat a grade, suggesting added learning impairment.

“We find little evidence of improvement in either the medium or the long run” from the use of ADHD drugs in children, wrote the authors. “Our results… suggest that expanding medication in a community setting had little positive benefit and may have had harmful effects given the average way these drugs are used in the community.”
ADHD drugs aren’t safe, can cause permanent health damage.
The obvious irony here is that many a parent has been hoodwinked into drugging his or her child into a state of statue-like docility with promises that doing so would lessen classroom outbursts and improve learning capacity.
To the contrary, the effects of these mind-altering medications is proving to be disastrous, potentially causing long-term brain damage in the process.
Psychologist L. Alan Sroufe addressed this in a 2012 opinion piece for The New York Times, warning that the long-term use of ADHD medications in children inflicts more harm than good.

“Sadly, few physicians and parents seem to be aware of what we have been learning about the lack of effectiveness of these drugs,” wrote Sroufe. “[W]hen given to children over long periods of time, [ADHD drugs] neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects, including stunting growth.”

In his piece, Sroufe, who admittedly has been treating “troubled” children for more than 40 years, expresses doubt that ADHD even exists and requires drug treatment. The “father” of ADHD, Leon Eisenberg, actually admitted to this on his death bed as well.
“To date, no study has found any long-term benefit of attention-deficit medication on academic performance, peer relationships or behavior problems, the very things we would most want to improve,” added Sroufe. “Putting children on drugs does nothing to change the conditions that derail their development in the first place.”
