Powerful Video Showing How Drugs Harm Children

May 07, 2007 | 52,620 views

If you're still skeptical about the toxic effects drugs have on young adults, I urge you to invest some time to watch The Drugging of Our Children, a documentary by Gary Null.

This film tackles the increasingly common practice of prescribing psychotropic drugs to kids who have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), despite the lack of any objective medical tests to verify such a diagnosis.

Instead, physicians rely heavily on standardized assessments and anecdotal reports from parents and teachers, often leaving little room for other explanations like a child's environment or diet.



 


Dr. Mercola's Comment:

Not long ago, I posited that psychotropic drugs may have played a role in the tragic Virginia Tech massacre. This video makes it clear that psychotic episodes are only one of the many potential dangers of these drugs.

Health professionals prescribe them without warning parents about the severe (psychotic symptoms, headaches, insomnia) and potentially fatal side effects (cardiac arrhythmia).

To make matters worse, some school systems around the United States work with government agencies to force parents to administer these drugs, going so far as threatening to remove their children from their homes unless they cooperate.

This is yet more evidence that in the toxic world of conventional medicine, pharmaceutical drugs rule the day as the automatic answer to problems like ADHD, despite the existence of safer, simpler solutions.

I would also strongly encourage you to view my interview with Dr. Lendon Smith that took place six years ago, shortly before he died. He was a pioneer in naturally addressing ADHD in children.
