   Dear Dr. Baughman,
   I am a Paraeducator 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
FB: please define this term for me]

  Lincoln Public Schools assigned to the Lancaster County Youth Services
  Center (youth detention), in Lincoln, Nebraska.  I have followed the ADD
  debate for some time now, and expecially after observing drugged school
  children in the detention center, am now more firmly convenced that ever
  that Psychologist/Psychiatrist legal drug pushers must be brought under

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
They--the entire psycho-pharm cartel are nothing but "drug
pushers," criminals. Ritalin alone: $500,000,000 per year, all of the
children normal!]

   I recently received an email announcing a program in "mental health" that
  is going to presented the last week in June.  See below.  Even the governor
  has apparently bought into the lie of ADD!
   Would it be possible for you if not to actually attend this event, to at
  least write letters of protest at the fraud the presenters at this event
  will commit?   Would you at least write the Governer of Nebraska?  If you
  give me a copy of any correspondence, I will do my best to give it the
  widest publication.
   If it would help for me to give you exact addresses and perhaps names of
  the school board members I can provide you with them. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
Get me the
address, I will do what I can.]

   I hope you can help.  I plan on attending the event and handing out
  pamphlets about the fraud of ADD and I could sure use your help.

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
Dear David, thanks for writing. This is, as I wrote Attorney General
Reno, 4/15/98, the greatest health care fraud in US history. You may
reproduce my testimony to Congress and the earlier letter to Janet Reno,
attached. Also, you may reproduce recent letter to Ross, CEO of CHADD.
Sincerely, Fred Baughman, MD]

  Attorney General--Janet Reno
  April 15, 1998
  950 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
  Washington, DC 20530
  Dear Madam Attorney General,
  The single, biggest heath care fraud in US history-the representation of
  attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to be an actual disease, and
  the drugging of millions of entirely normal American children, as
  "treatment," is spreading like a plague-still.  That ADHD is wholly devoid
  of validity as a disease, a medical syndrome or, anything biologic or
  organic, is the pivotal element of the fraud.
  The public at large and every individual as a health care consumer, has been
  lead by an expensive, persistent, disinformation campaign, to believe that
  ADHD is an actual brain "disease,"  "chemical imbalance," "psychiatric
  disorder,"  "neurobiological disorder" and that the children are "abnormal,"
  "diseased," "disabled" and in need of treatment (usually
  methylphenindate--Ritalin, or amphetamine--Adderal or Dexedrine,
  pemoline-Cylert, or one or more antidepressants or psychotropic drugs
  otherwise).   This being the case, patients, almost without exception, are
  deprived of an honest, scientific portrayal of the risk/benefit ratio and of
  their informed consent rights.
  The issues of the fraud are set forth in the three documents I have
  enclosed, (1) Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD) and
  Hyperkinetic Disorder (HKD):There is no Disease-The Children are Normal (11
  pages, with bibliography), (2) ADHD as Fraud, Malpractice, Assault & Battery
  (5 pages), and  (3) The Future of Mental Health: Radical Changes Ahead (3
  I thank you for your attention to this most urgent matter concerning the
  well-being of America's children (the US consumes 90% of the world's supply
  of methylphenindate-Ritalin, giving 90% of it to our children).
  I will gladly provide more information, if that is needed.  I am prepared to
  testify to the substance of what I have charged, under oath.
  Sincerely yours,
  Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD
