Maybe children need real FOOD instead of psychiatric DRUGS?

Understanding the Rise in ADHD DiagnosesWe have over 3000 FDA approved food additives in the American food supply. Vast majority of process foods contain 7 artificial colorants which are hostile to any living cell because of their chemical nature. In the fiscal year of 2012 23,178,881.35 pounds of artificial food colors were certified by the FDA, that is 23,178,881.35/314,000,000 ~ 0.074 (33 g) pounds per capita. This is 48% up from 15,722,200.33 pounds certified a decade before in the fiscal year of 2002. According to an estimation by Feingold Association, (watch brief video Food Dyes and Behavior: A Different View) an American child may consume up to 245 mg of combined artificial colorants a day so that annual consumption may perhaps be as high as 40 – 60 g. Note that based on 60 mg Reference Daily Intake for Vitamin C, recommended annual amount of Vitamin C is only 22 g per adult person. Why do we allow that much of potentially harmful chemicals into the blood of our children? Is there any correlation between growing numbers of autism, asthma, ADHD and unexplained school shootings and increasing amounts of strange chemicals that American children consume?

Developmental Disabilities, Including Autism and ADHD, Are on the Rise

 Below is a quotation from an article published in May 2011.

“One in six American children now has a developmental disability — a 17% increase over the past decade, driven largely by increases in autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to government researchers. The new study, published in Pediatrics, found that 15% of U.S. children aged 3 to 17 were diagnosed with a developmental disability in 2006-08 — about 10 million children in all. In 1997-99, that rate was 12.8%, or 8 million children.

While researchers saw increases in a wide range of developmental problems, including stuttering and learning disabilities, the most significant increases were seen with autism and ADHD. Autism rates nearly quadrupled over the study period, from 0.19% of children in 1997-99 to 0.74% in 2006-08. But, overall, ADHD accounted for the greatest number of developmental disability cases; rates rose by 33%, from 5.7% of children in 1997-99 to 7.6% by 2008. The reasons for the increases are not clear, but the researchers suggest they may be due in part to increases in preterm birth and the older age of parents.”

The latest report is even more disturbing: Along with skyrocketing growth of ADHD occurrence the number of children on psychiatric medications has reached 4 million! Keep reading.

Understanding the Rise in ADHD Diagnoses: 11% of U.S. Children Are Affected

“The rates of U.S. children affected by attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are skyrocketing, according to a recent report, but experts caution that the latest numbers require a bit of decoding.

That information shows that 11% of children ages 4 to 17 were diagnosed with ADHD, a 16% increase since 2007, the last time that researchers at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did a comprehensive survey for the prevalence of the neurobehavior disorder. The rise was especially dramatic among boys, with an estimated 1 in 5 boys in high school diagnosed with ADHD. What’s more, about two-thirds of the children diagnosed were treated with stimulant medications that can improve attention but also come with side effects.”

ADHD Diagnoses Increased More Than 50 Percent in a Decade

Maybe your child needs real FOOD instead of ADHD drugs?“In 2011, eleven percent of school-age children had been diagnosed with ADHD That’s a sixteen percent more than in 2007 and 53 percent more than a decade ago, according to a New York Times analysis of new data from the Center for Disease Control. This comes out to a grand total 6.4 million children in the US, up to 4 million of whom have prescriptions for Adderall, Ritalin, or other medication, a class of drugs that brings in an estimated $9 billion in sales annually. …Clearly, more and more kids are being diagnosed with ADHD. What the new study doesn’t tell us is whether more and more kids actually have it. Another recent CDC study, that both surveyed parents and screened children, suggested doctors are over-diagnosing ADHD in some kids while overlooking the condition in others. The survey, which focused on South Carolina and Oklahoma, found that of children taking ADHD medication, only 40 percent in South Carolina and 28 percent in Oklahoma actually met the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.”

Before the drugging of our children, maybe we should first try feeding them with healthy food?

The Drugging Of Our Children (video)

There are NO independent diagnostic tests for ADHD (like blood test or biological test), there is no proof in biological basis and there is huge risk of overmedication of children with the drugs that have very serious adverse effects. So, why school teachers make decisions about our child’s health and medications with psychiatric drugs that may cause permanent changes to their brains, hallucinations, suicidal behavior and aggression outbursts? It seems, only brain MRI is possibly capable to help diagnosing actual ADD and ADHD in children. So far the definition of ADHD sounds like the Supreme Court definition of pornography which is: “You know it when you see it.”

What Else You Should Know About ADHD Medication

Children who are inappropriately diagnosed with ADHD, or those who have other mental health conditions, may be at increased risk for mood disorders or aggressive behavior while on the medication, said Dr. Michael Duchowny, a pediatric neurologist at Miami Children’s Hospital. …Because conditions such as heart attacks and strokes are rare in children, it’s hard to know whether stimulants actually increase the risk of these events, said Dr. William Graf, a professor of pediatrics and neurology at Yale School of Medicine. And more research is needed to determine whether taking the medications for a “mental boost” could affect the developing brain, said Dr. Graf.

NOTE: Ritalin is regulated by the FDA same way as cocaine (Schedule II drugs, see Methylphenidate on page 8 of Alphabetical Order) was reported to cause cardiac arrests and deaths in children.

School shootings: How Can American Food Lead to American Blood

Can there be a chain link between deteriorating qualities of American food, autism, ADHD, uncontrolled psychiatric drug prescriptions and school shootings?

Chemically saturated food – ADHD, autism, etc. – Ritalin and other psychoactive drugs – depression, suicides, school shootings

Every mass shooting over last 20 years has one thing in common… and it’s not guns

Here’s the full article by Dan Roberts via NaturalNews.com:

Firearm(Ammoland.com) Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used.

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Multiple credible scientific studies going back more then a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 ” Mainstream Media ” reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.

The following list of mass shooting perpetrators and the drugs they were taking or had been taking shortly before their horrific actions was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident. Is there a link between Noveske’s death and his “outting” of information numerous disparate parties would prefer to suppress, for a variety of reasons?

I leave that to the individual readers to decide. But there is most certainly a documented history of people who “knew too much” or were considered a “threat” dying under extraordinarily suspicious circumstances.

From Katherine Smith, a Tennessee DMV worker who was somehow involved with several 9/11 hijackers obtaining Tennessee Drivers Licenses, and was later found burned to death in her car, to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb, who exposed a CIA Operation in the 80’s that resulted in the flooding of LA Streets with crack cocaine and was later found dead from two gunshot wounds to the head, but was officially ruled as a “suicide”, to Frank Olson, a senior research micro biologist who was working on the CIA’s mind control research program MKULTRA.

After Olson expressed his desire to leave the program, he was with a CIA agent in a New York hotel room, and is alleged to have committed “suicide” by throwing himself off the tenth floor balcony. In 1994, Olson’s sons were successful in their efforts to have their fathers body exhumed and re-examined in a second autopsy by James Starrs, Professor of Law and Forensic science at the National Law Center at George Washington University. Starr’s team concluded that the blunt force trauma to the head and injury to the chest had not occurred during the fall but most likely in the room before the fall. The evidence was called “rankly and starkly suggestive of homicide.” Based on his findings, in 1996 the Manhattan District Attorney opened a homicide investigation into Olson’s death, but was unable to find enough evidence to bring charges.

As I said, I leave it to the individual readers to make up their own minds if Noveske suffered a similar fate. On to the list of mass shooters and the stark link to psychotropic drugs.

Don’t let them! Force our elected “representatives” and the media to cast a harsh spotlight on this issue. Don’t stop hounding them until they do.

    How raisins are made:
    Dark raisins: They are just dried without preservatives.
    Light (golden) raisins: They are treated with sulfur dioxide before drying to preserve the golden color.
