THE A.D.H.D. ALARM
The popular pain killer Vioxx was touted as the safest of all time - by physicians and medical journals. After a grueling five years, Big Pharma could no longer hide their secret. The body bags were stacking up too high. By Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates, it prevented 30,000 to 40,000 American's from living out their dreams. Instead, they are now six feet under. In my book, Health Myths Exposed, I warn that our children might be facing a similar tragedy thanks to the ADHD meds Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta.
By over stimulating the central nervous system, ADHD meds put the cardiovascular system into overdrive. The hearts of our developing children simply cannot keep up. Death results � far more than Big Pharma, or anyone for that matter, wants to admit. But don�t take my word for it.
Commenting on the troublesome threesome, Dr. Nissen of the world renowned Cleveland Clinic stated that, "We have got a potential public health crisis.

Not everyone is concealing the death threat of ADHD meds. The Experimental Pharmacology Department of the American Cyanamid Company and the Merck Index reports that these meds are no less toxic or safer than amphetamine and methamphetamine. They state that with the administration of this drug, motor activity decreases. Many times, tremors and convulsions occur. Studies on amphetamine derivatives show that short-term clinical doses produce brain cell death. According to the authoritative Merck Index, long-lasting and sometimes permanent changes in the biochemistry of the brain are also a result.
Such dangers explain why the U.S. Government spends billions every year to keep them off the street. But it doesn�t explain why we are pushing them to our 5th graders! The House subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations highlighted that ADHD meds are prescribed for 10% of 5th grade boys! A total of 2.5 million American children are being given street crank disguised as ADHD vitamins�
the symptoms of ADHD are best controlled with select lifestyle habits
and nutritional supplements. Replacing sugary meals with ones that
are loaded with healthy sources of fat such as eggs, avocado, grass
fed beef, seeds and nuts is a great start. Cod liver oil and green
tea supplements can enhance focus while L-tryptophan (sold as SerotoninFX
