ADD Drugs Cause Parkinson's
The amphetamines prescribed for narcolepsy and ADD/ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder) can cause the neurological disease Parkinson’s new researchhas confirmed.
Researchers from Kaiser Permanente in Northern California found that the drugs Benzedrine and Dexedrine increase the risk of Parkinson’s by 60%. Their discovery was made when they tracked the health of 66,348 people from 1964 – when the average age of the participants was 36 – until 1995. By then, 1,154 people had developed Parkinson’s, which suggests a 60 per cent increased risk compared to those who didn’t take either drug. Researchers claim that Parkinson’s is an unsuspected reaction to the drugs.
Anyone taking the drugs should be aware of the potential risks.
Parents of children diagnosed with ADD or ADHD should take a close look at their children's drinking water, diet and exposure to television, cell phones and wifi as possible contributors to their condition. Fluoride in water, beverages and food has been shown to cause cognitive problems that can appear as attention deficits. Many food additives can also contribute to cognitive problems. Microwave radiation has been shown to interfere with children's brain activity and reduce their ability to focus.
