ADHD Diagnoses Up 25% the Past Decade. Our Opinion is ADHD is Fraud Science

The rates of childhood attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) diagnosis has increased by nearly 25% over the past decade, researchers found. White and Black patients were more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD and with income of $70,000/year or more.
Note these points above the affluent are diagnosed with ADHD, because they can afford to pay for the BigPharma Drugs?

The study was done by Kaiser Permanente in Southern California and it entailed diagnosis from 2001 to 2010. Whites were the most likely to be diagnosed. These doctors say it is the most common and has reached epidemic proportions? Can you believe these doctors say ADHD is epidemic? Of course they are the hospital doing the diagnosis. There is a book from Dr. Fred Baughman called ADHD Fraud which any parent given this “epidemic” diagnosis should read if their child is given this disorder.
If you’re a parent look out they indicate the medium age is 8 to 9 and most likely male getting diagnosed, or if they are African American then over 10 years they are getting the ADHD tag.
Our Opinion is this is Fraud Science and there is no measure for ADHD. Here is an excerpt from AMA council on Scientific affairs: With no proof that ADHD is a disease with a confirmatory, physical abnormality, the ADHD “epidemic,” has grown from 150,000 in 1970, to five million in 1997. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, Ritalin production, in the US, rose 700%, between 1990 and 1997 and, the AMA, Council on Scientific Affairs has seen fit to conclude: “…there is little evidence of widespread over diagnosis or misdiagnosis of ADHD or of widespread over prescription of methylphenidate”(Goldman, et al. 1998). So a 700% increase in Ritalin prescriptions is not a sign of over diagnosis? Are you kidding? It is clear to us and needs to be clear to parents that this epidemic is a BigPharms scam.
