“ADHD does not exist”
One by one, nearly all of Saul’s patients turned out to have some disease other than ADHD, such as Tourette’s, OCD, fragile X syndrome (a genetic mutation linked to mental retardation), autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, learning disabilities or such familiar conditions as substance abuse, poor hearing or even giftedness. A boy who was disruptive and inattentive in math class (but no other) was, simply, bored by the material and needed to be advanced a grade to regain his concentration.

There are many health fads: diets, ideas, suppliments etc. And then their are the trends that hurt people.
Anti-vaccine crusades have resulted in outbreaks, overuse of vitamins has led to health problems, “natural cures” and “alternative medicines” have led to deaths and tons of wasted money.
ADHD is the go-to excuse the left has for: a) providing the excuse that kids won’t lean, B) doping kids so they stay still and C) providing for another class of “victim”.
It’s an industry fed by lazy teachers/school admins, big pharama, doctors and parents looking for an easy out. Ritilin and adderal abuse is a thriving black market.
Future generations will look at ADHD the way we look at phrenology.
