Matthew Smith would be fresh out of college and beginning his career now, if he hadn’t died as a 14-year-old boy from “long term use of methylphenidate” (Ritalin) as stated on his death certificate. Matthew’s parents had never wanted him to take Ritalin. When Matthew was only 7 years old, school officials told his parents that Matthew had ADHD. The school threatened that if Matthew, a healthy active boy, was not put on Ritalin, they would contact Social Service Child Protective Services. School authorities claimed his parents could be charged with neglecting Matthew’s educational and emotional needs. His parents did not want Matthew on drugs and saw nothing abnormal about his behavior. But they felt helpless to the school’s authority. Matthew’s parents did what millions of parents in the U.S. have done. They complied under duress. Now their beautiful, creative son is dead. The monster won. For seven years, Matthew’s parents paid the monster to poison their child. Now they can’t pay anyone to bring him back. HOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IS PREYING ON OUR CHILDREN by K.L.

Stephanie Hall would be a young woman now, maybe a mother, if she hadn’t died in her sleep from a massive cardiac arrest six days before her twelfth birthday. She had been in first grade less than one month when her teacher told Stephanie’s mom she thought the little girl had Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Stephanie’s concerned parents took the perfectly healthy child to a physician and everything was found to be normal. But because the teacher had already labeled the child with ADD, the physician wrote a prescription for Ritalin. Poor Stephanie was too young to make her parents understand how ill the drug made her feel. It began with headaches and over the years led to hallucinations. Her heart disease was a silent side effect of the drug. Her parents paid the monster for six years to poison and terrorize their daughter. Even when Stephanie began to suffer hallucinations from the mind-altering drug, the answer was always to increase the dosage. No one considered the drug as the cause of Stephanie’s problems. Now Stephanie has no problems and her parents live with the loss. HOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IS PREYING ON OUR CHILDREN by K.L. Carlson, M.B.A.
It is a schedule 2 narcotic, along with heroin and cocaine. That’s an official designation.....And there is some evidence to suggest that it causes atrophy of the brain. Interview with Dr Peter Breggin on Ritalin
Ritalin and amphetamine have almost identical adverse effects on the brain, mind and behavior, including the production of drug-induced behavioral disorders, psychosis, mania, drug abuse, and addiction....Ritalin can cause permanent neurological tics including Tourette's syndrome......Withdrawal from Ritalin can cause emotional suffering, including depression, exhaustion, and suicide. This can make children seem psychiatrically disturbed and lead mistakenly to increased doses of medication.

Ciba spends millions of dollars to sell parent groups and doctors on the idea of using Ritalin. Ciba helps to support the parent group, CH.A.D.D., and organized psychiatry. The U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) push Ritalin as vigorously as the manufacturer of the drug, often in even more glowing terms than the drug company could get away with legally.

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms. For every one of the following Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature: Paranoid delusions, Paranoid psychosis, Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis, Activation of psychotic symptoms, Toxic psychosis, Visual hallucinations, Auditory hallucinations, Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences, Effects pathological thought processes, Extreme withdrawal, Terrified affect, Started screaming, Aggressiveness.---Ritalin - The Hidden Effects...Article by Independent Investigative Reporter Jon Rappaport
In 1998, you could still find experiments where they would take people stumbling into emergency rooms, first episode. So let's say you got a kid, and he's in dire trouble, and they would do an experiment on him, rather than do something to knock down his emotional turmoil. Instead, they would give him amphetamines or Ritalin, to see if it would make him worse. Imagine that! [Interview 2005] Psychiatry's Untold History of Cruelty, Torture, Eugenics and Brain Damage
Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths from methylphenidate reported to the FDA MedWatch program, a voluntary reporting scheme, the numbers of which represent no more than 10 to 20% of the actual incidence. Source: http://www.adhdfraud.org/commentary/1-6-02-2.htm
"We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs." Robert Mendelsohn, M.D
" Amphetamines: These are
extremely dangerous drugs. They include dextro-amphetamine,
methamphetamine and amphetamine-like compounds such as Ritalin. In general, in
high doses, these drugs cause a "body trip" and cessation of thinking activity.
In the early days when Dexedrine was first synthesized by Smith, Kline and
French in Philadelphia, I did some psychopharmacologic experiments on myself
with it. In doses of 150 mgm. there is a spectacular increase in bodily energy
and a spectacular decrease in one's critical faculties in regard to this bodily
energy. There is a hedonistic over-valuation of one's own bodily acitivity so
that repeating tapeloops of bodily movement, for example, can occur for hours at
a time. With amphetamines, tank work can become rather repetitious and
For three or four days after such a trip, there is total exhaustion of the organism. This state can lead to negative things such as trying to get "back to normal" by taking more of the amphetamines. This drives one further into the exhaustion cycle and finally one becomes quite paranoid, quite frightened, and may "freak out" totally. In an attempt to escape the penalty of such tripping, certain persons have taken to barbiturates to calm down the system after the trip. This leads to a cyclical effect in which one gets so depressed by the barbiturates that one takes amphetamines to come up again; one gets so excited by the amphetamines that one takes the barbiturates to go down again. This cyclical "tapeloop" of two drugs can be extremely dangerous—one can end up dead in a hurry. We recommend that amphetamines not be used in tank research."--John Lilly MD (The Deep Self)
Many parents around the country have discovered that Ritalin has become a condition for their children continuing in school. There are even reports, by parents, of threats from social agencies: "If you don't allow us to prescribe Ritalin for your ADHD child, we may decide that you are an unfit parent. We may decide to take your child away." ......In his book, Talking Back to Ritalin, Dr. Peter Breggin expands on the drug's effects: "Stimulants such as Ritalin and amphetamine... have grossly harmful impacts on the brain -- reducing overall blood flow, disturbing glucose metabolism, and possibly causing permanent shrinkage or atrophy of the brain." .....And one should not forget that Ritalin came out of a Swiss drug giant called Ciba Geigy (now Novartis) fifty years ago. That company once had very close business ties with the infamous Nazi cartel, IG Farben. Farben stood for inhuman experiments on human beings. Read the adverse effects of Ritalin again, and consider that millions of children take those pills every day.

A woman with a newborn baby is too starry-eyed to see a wealthy man's cannon fodder or a cheap source of slave labor. A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to "reality" when it comes, or sooner. As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state-controlled public education and state-operated child-care centers must be become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and father at an earlier age. Inoculation of behavioral drugs [Ritalin] can speed the transition for the child (mandatory). Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars
Let's talk about bipolar disorder among kids. As one doctor said, that
used to be so rare as to be almost nonexistent. Now we're seeing it all
over. Bipolar is exploding among kids. Well, partly you could say that we're
just slapping that label on kids more often; but in fact, there is something
real going on. Here's what's happening. You take kids and put them on an
antidepressant -- which we never used to do -- or you put them on a
stimulant like Ritalin. Stimulants can cause mania; stimulants can cause
so the kid ends up with a drug-induced manic or psychotic episode. Once they have that, the doctor at the emergency room doesn't say, "Oh, he's suffering from a drug-induced episode." He says he's bipolar
they give him an antipsychotic drug; and now he's on a cocktail of drugs, and he's on a path to becoming disabled for life. That's an example of how we're absolutely making kids sick.
Ritalin is methylphenidate. Now methylphenidate affects the brain in exactly the same way as cocaine. They both block a molecule that is involved in the reuptake of dopamine.
So methylphenidate is very similar to cocaine. Now, one difference is whether you're snorting it or if it's in a pill. That partly changes how quickly it's metabolized. But still, it basically affects the brain in the same way. Now, methylphenidate was used in research studies to deliberately stir psychosis in schizophrenics. Because they knew that you could take a person with a tendency towards psychosis, give them methylphenidate, and cause psychosis. We also knew that amphetamines, like methylphenidate, could cause psychosis in people who had never been psychotic before.
So think about this. We're giving a drug to kids that is known to have the possibility of stirring psychosis. Now, the odd thing about methylphenidate and amphetamines is that, in kids, they sort of have a counterintuitive effect. What does speed do in adults? It makes them more jittery and hyperactive. For whatever reasons, in kids amphetamines will actually still their movements; it will actually keep them in their chairs and make them more focused. So you've got kids in boring schools. The boys are not paying attention and they're diagnosed with ADHD and put on a drug that is known to stir psychosis. The next thing you know, a fair number of them are not doing well by the time they're 15, 16, 17. Some of those kids talk about how when you're on these drugs for the long term, you start feeling like a zombie; you don't feel like yourself.
Millions of kids! Think about what we're doing. We're robbing kids of their right to be kids, their right to grow, their right to experience their full range of emotions, and their right to experience the world in its full hue of colors. That's what growing up is, that's what being alive is! And we're robbing kids of their right to be. It's so criminal. And we're talking about millions of kids who have been affected this way. There are some colleges where something like 40 to 50 percent of the kids arrive with a psychiatric prescription.

In the same year, the Washington Post (3) published the fact that Ritalin which is prescribed to very young children had never been tested on that age group (under 6's) and yet, between 150,000 - 200,000 children between the ages of 2 and 4 were prescribed Ritalin. Hilary Butler letter to BMJ 2004
