ADHD drugs stunt the growth of children who take them….

Dr. Al Sears, an MD from Florida, reports that:

Chances are you know of a child on Ritalin or some other prescription drug for “attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder” (ADHD). But did you know that these drugs can keep children from growing normally? Meanwhile, there are plenty of safe, natural ways to help these children that you won’t hear about from the mainstream medical community.

In a recently published study, a team of American scientists discovered that while Ritalin and similar prescription drugs like Adderall and Dexedrine might help some kids in the short term, over a three-year period they had no beneficial effect on their overall behavior . . . and that they can stunt children’s growth.

So not only are these drugs dangerous, addictive and harmful to normal development – they don’t even work.

If you want the full text of Dr. Sears’ email, feel free to leave a comment with your email address and I’ll email it to you — he says it is okay with him to pass along the email, which I would not do without permission.

His article sites several studies that are themselves worth reading.
