APA & NIMH #1 CAUSE OF ADHD EPIDEMIC; CHADD THE VECTOR by Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD 8/8/01 [July 24 2001 Norwegian Kids Left Waiting for Psychiatric Care By Kristin Demos LONDON (Reuters Health)] As of June, 2,390 children were on waiting lists for psychiatric help, most with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). "Far too many minors have to wait for treatment," said a spokesman for the Department of Health. Children with ADHD are generally treated with the drugs methylphenidate (Ritalin) or dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine/Dexamin). Special rules that apply to narcotics stipulate that only child psychiatrists and pediatricians may diagnose ADHD and make the initial prescription. "We realize that children with ADHD need more than Ritalin or Dexamin" said Dr. Hege Borge, of Norway's Buskerud Central Hospital. These children need long-term follow-up and help from school people, social workers and psychologists," she added. "More child psychiatrists are needed," she concluded. "The problem with ADHD is huge now and more parents are aware of it, so their children come into the system much earlier than say, 10 years ago." When, exactly did the problem with ADHD become huge in Norway. They speak of their 2390 children on waiting lists for ADHD as "huge" while we here in the US label and drug 6-7 million for it. ADHD was invented and made part of the APA marketing plan (via DSM III) in 1980. And it has undergone two re-conceptualizations, re-inventions, sinceboth as ADHD, these for the 1987 DSM III R and the 1994, DSM IV. None have been proved to be diseases by finding objective, physical abnormalities within the brain or body of the children. US "researchers" and "experts" mostly from the NIMH and CHADD, but including none other than Surgeon General, David Satcher, have been circling the globe keeping everyone abreast of the latest "findings" regarding this "disease"-without-an- abnormality, which means non-disease. When I attended the November, 1998 ADHD Consensus Conference at the NIH in Bethesda, MD, presenter, James Swanson, PhD, related that his co-author, FX Castellanos, MD of the NIMH, was in the UK sharing the latest in ADHD research with folks there. Researchers at our own NIMH are the primary authors of the ADHD deception and propaganda campaign, while CHADD and their counterparts--propaganda organs bought and paid for by the amphetamine-producing drug companies, put out the dis-information that ADHD is an actual disease. In fact these are normal behaviors in normal children, and have never been proved to be anything else. There is no such thing as a psychiatric or psychological "disease." All things psychiatric and psychological are entirely subjective. Dr. Swanson, a leading ADHD "researcher," slipped up and said exactly that at the March 7, 1998 meeting of the American Society of Adolescent Psychiatry in my hometown, San Diego, CA. Only when the narcotic starts, are the children diseased/intoxicated/poisoned. Up to that point, Mother and Father, they were, just as at birthnormal. Norway and all countries could eliminate the waiting lines at psychiatrists offices, psychiatric clinics and hospitals very easily--they could visit the parents and children on those lines and assure them that ADHD is a fraud, that their children are normal.
