The French Do Not Recognize ADHD for Pharma Drug Intervention

by Paul Fassa, REALfarmacy.com

The French don’t recognize ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) as a chemical imbalance that opens the Pandora’s Box of pharmaceutical drug addiction with harmful side effects.

They don’t raise their kids on fake hyper sugar and chemical processed foods either. Instead, school kids are treated to chefs in training preparing lunch meals from nearby freshly grown produce and local livestock.

In general, the French are more food health conscious than Americans. They believe in fresh well prepared food for all. They don’t allow chemically bleaching wheat flour for white bread. They let the sun do that, which probably enhances micro-nutrients instead of adding toxins.

The ADHD diagnosis rate in America is 19 percent. In France, it’s .5%—a half of one percent. And the socialization of that half percent is not done chemically. It’s done socially and/or with talk therapy, the old fashioned way.

No doubt a lot of fake kiddie cereals that dominate our food aisles are eschewed in France also. That’s probably aided by much less TV advertising of fake foods loaded with food coloring chemicals and sweetened with added excess sugar and HFCS to hook the kids. All of those items contribute to hyperactivity.

And perhaps less TV with MTV type editing activity that prevails in much of our visual entertainment these days makes it easier to be more one pointed and patient.

Maybe the French kids get more outdoor activity, riding bikes around, enjoying playground activity without excess “helicopter” supervision, and playing soccer. That’s the sort of activity that has declined considerably in the USA.

Instead, video games and TV watching are considered the safe way to raise kids. All sorts of terrible things outside, you know. Must guard the kids and make sure they won’t get dirty or hurt.

I’m glad I grew up when kids were riding bikes all over, even to school and back, building “forts” in overgrown empty lots or wooded areas, and occasionally engaging in slingshot and BB gun fights whenever we weren’t playing sandlot football or baseball under the intense Miami sun.

Even with all that, enough schooling was boring, inviting classroom hijinks and restless behavior. But were weren’t put on pharmaceutical drugs. Here’s a type of school outside the public school system that would be less energetically restrictive while offering subjects of individual interest.

The Fake Disease That’s Turning Kids Into Drug Addicts

In 1998, Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn of the Royal College of General Practitioners stated, “ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction. One of the founding fathers of ADHD as a medical psychiatric disorder, Leon Eisenberg, confessed before dying in 2009 at the age of 87, “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.”

Psychiatrists traded in their note pads used in talk therapy for prescription pads as their professional stature diminished a few decades ago.

As MDs who did talk therapy, they could legally write prescriptions while their non-MD certified psychologists and counselors could not. So eventually a collusion between psychiatrists and Big Pharma created manuals that listed disorders by symptomatic observation and psychiatric committee consensus to create the drug for that disorder.

Fake diseases created for fake medicines

That in a nutshell was the brain chemistry imbalance explanation for behavioral and mental disorders, and just like viruses, Big Pharma had a chemical for all of them.

So then psychiatrists could have patients visit for 15 minutes then prescribe them pharmaceuticals. Future visits would determine future prescriptions depending on if the patient hadn’t gone on a killing spree or committed suicide from the drug’s side effects.

This created disease has resulted in putting children as young as three years old on pharmaceuticals like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts). These are both chemically similar to what Walt of the “Breaking Bad” TV series was selling on the amphetamine black market.

Now almost 5 million kids in the US who have been observed by school faculties and other facilities to be a behavioral nuisance or not with it scholastically are on Ritalin or Adderall. Then there are the antidepressants for worse cases.

This is a drug culture that’s totally legal and just as socially and physiologically dangerous as hard street drug activity, you know, the “war on drugs” kind.

    Great article Dan! As I may have mentioned my degree was in psychology and I worked for a year in the Kern County Mental Health children’s system of care. Eventually I could no longer be a part of this system that relied on drugging kids instead of treating them with respect and love. It was when I was forced to break a promise to one of these kids that I had to leave. Pharmaceutical companies dominate in the mental health arena as they do in other medical areas because of the corrupting influence of their money. I’m sure that the DSM-5 publishers are highly influenced by them. Money motivation does tend to corrupt everything it touches.

    A vision perhaps overly idealized of French youth. If our kids continue to like bicycle rides and to have fun outside with their buddies – rarely under adult supervision, screens like smartphones and TV are gaining ground. “There are not so many chefs who work in school canteens, except during what we call the “Week of taste”, a part of the educational program that seeks to educate children about food to which they are unaccustomed. And the shelves of our supermarkets offer also their share of breakfast cereals or processed food.
    But our food standards (and those of most European countries) are very different from those that prevail in the United States. Here, we don’t clean the chickens with chlorine under the pretext to make them bacteria-free. Similarly, we resort to antibiotics to treat cattle only when absolutely necessary. We don’t resort to hormones to accelerate the growth of this same livestock, which is apparently common overseas. So when our children eat a piece of meat, at home or at canteen, they swallow only very few chemical residue associated with industrial food production.
    Another phenomenon that develops is ‘Bio’ food, fruits and vegetables grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Almost all school canteens provide meals made with such foods once a week, often more frequently. Add to this an ads-campaign started years ago to invite people and especially kids to eat 5 different fruits and vegetables per day.
    Better food is probably not the only reason for this lower rate of ADHD. Here, Big Pharma has not the same influence on consumers, they can’t propose ads designed to “create a need” for their product in the population. The only thing that the pharmaceutical industry can do, it’s canvass doctors to encourage them to prescribe their products; she cannot apply to the population to get people to ask for their drugs. Add to this the fact that our Health Care System monitors the drugs prescriptions (at least, it’s the Health Care System who pays by reimbursing them), so you obtain our doctors not prescribing unnecessary medication for pathologies that doesn’t exist.

    A note of caution. The characterization of French youth is maybe a little on the ‘idealized’ spectrum. I recently encountered a group of them during a museum visit, and I can assure readers here that the smartphone revolution has penetrated as far as France. Every one of them spent almost the entire time in the museum glued to their screens. I doubt they noticed the exhibits at all. Most that weren’t staring at a flickering screen or listening distractedly via earphones to whatever ‘jingle’ of the moment, walked around with a bored expression. As they gathered at the exit with their supervising teachers, I heard them yelling excitedly that they wanted to go for McDonalds.

    I don’t think any of this is necessarily a cause for despair. The fact is, that young people in every part of the world are now connected in ways we ‘olders’ could never have imagined in our youth, and the effects of globalization in its’ every form means that geographical uniqueness is no longer possible, or indeed desirable some may say. Maybe in the 1960’s or the 70’s French kids did ride their bikes, or walked in the woods instead of watching TV, but that was probably because French TV was universally awful in those days, and believe me, having lived there for a short period back then, I have personal experience of it. As for the diet, yes it probably was more healthy than now, but equally ‘foreign’ foods like breakfast cereal simply weren’t available in France in those days, and the culture was for home cooked meals prepared in the kitchen every day from fresh basic ingredients. Lifestyle then permitted that way of doing things.

    If you went to France now, you’d see McDonalds and KFC on every street in even relatively small towns. MTV and all the other major satellite channels from multiple countries are available at the click of a switch. French people are just as connected and have just as busy lives as anyone in the States or any other developed countries and the tradition of home cooked meals has been replaced by processed foods as time has eaten into the leisure opportunities of the working population. Walk into any French downtown area, and you’ll see Gap, TJ Maxx and Walmart. It could be downtown anywhere in the world.

    And so, if our kids are succumbing to mental deficiencies because of their adoption of technology and tendency to consume materials laced with potentially harmful chemicals, don’t blame them. The world has reached this point because of humans’ desire always to evolve the way we do things. It’s the price of progress. The only way to fix it is to turn the clock back, but are we prepared to do that? That’s the 64,000 dollar question.

      Note: I’m not really surprised by the behavior you describe. For kids of any nationality, visiting a museum is something boring, even if it’s the best way to awake their senses to a cultural heritage. And most of the Museums offer smartphone applications that replace a guide by describing what is exposed.
      For most of these young people, a meal at McDonald’s or KFC is the equivalent of a dinner out, without the obligation to use cutlery for eating. Not so surprising that they like it. But, as a meal at restaurant, this is the exception, not the rule.
