People are looking for causes but I believe it is a nutritional disorder.

Wow, what a quintessential piece of anti-drug propaganda that video is. Geeze, I'm not sure where I should begin here, but I will certainly keep this brief.

For starters, at exactly the 22 second mark in that video, you hear a man state that "at this time we do not have a diagnostic test for ADHD, therefore the validity of this disorder remains a problem." He was speaking at the "Consensus Development Conference on ADD/ADHD" that was hosted by the National Institute of Mental Health.

Well, I hate to burst the bubble of all the anti-drug hysterics who like to assume this disorder is never in need of prescription medication, but there actually happens to be a diagnostic test for ADHD.

I'm so glad you're from Sydney, because thanks to the great doctors who work right there in your hometown at Children's Hospital at Westmead, there is a wonderful diagnostic test that was developed through the hospital's Centre for Research into Adolescent Health and its Brain Dynamics Centre.

I hope that you take the time to learn more about this wonderful diagnostic test, and I also hope that you spend less time listening to (and spreading) anti-drug propaganda like the kind presented in that video.

I could go on and on here, but I try to spend as little time as possible dealing with anti-drug hysteria, so I wont continue to make a stronger point. I think the simple point I made was enough for anyone educated to see what is fact, and what is fiction in this thread.

Sincerely,
