I teach in an adult setting and on one report of a student another teacher wrote that the man had ADHD. I crossed the statement from the report. We are all too quick to label people with learning difficulties, when the fault lies with our own inability to look more closely into an individual's capabilities. But, to think of medicating anyone on sheer speculation is so wrong and unnecessary.

My student, by the way, did learn at a slower pace and in a way that was unconventional. Why do we think all people must act, learn and behave in a proscribed way. Our societies are sick not our individual members.

One must ask if it exist at all because it sounds like a training issue to me.

We have the best government that corporate dollars can buy. Our establishment government will spend billions of dollars making war upon a plant and all the people who find healing from its use, yet it will do nothing to stop its corporate masters from poisoning the American people with toxins whose health impacts are poorly understood. Before we can treat ADHD, we really need to give our government a big dose of medicine.

Didn't anyone get the memo?
Processed foods, gmo foods and big pharma and their unholy vaccinations are being considered as root causes.they get money from both ends
