Are you aware that the US government gives to the public schools an extra allowance of $400 to $1,000 per each child who is taking Ritalin®?What an incentive! No wonder teachers are contacting parents to convince them that their child needs to be on this type of drug. Doctors are even prescribing Ritalin for two-year old children. What is the lowest age that a child could be given Ritalin? Since birth?
No wonder our Lord Yeshua/Jesus prophesied about this generation with these words:
If you look at some of the translations of the quote mentioned above, you will see a rendering of "sorceries" for the word "drugs." But the original Greek word is "pharmakia" from where the word pharmacy or drugstore is derived.
Jesus knew that in the end times people would be using drugs. It used to be that taking drugs was voluntary, now they force little kids to take them. But Jesus says:
No, the children do not have any disease. What the school system wants is to baby sit these children in the most economical way.
Ritalin, Adderall, or any new drug that would produce the "effects" they look for will be readily welcomed, especially if more funds would be provided to the school if the children are enrolled in this type of drug "treatment."
What most parents are not aware of is some of the side effects of these drugs:
So, why do parents force their loved children to attend public school? Some of the reasons are:
No wonder the birth rate in developed countries is the lowest in history. Women do not want to have children anymore.
Our Lord Jesus saw these end times the day He was being led to be crucified and replied:.
Pray that Christ comes soon!
The panel of the National Institutes of Health, Consensus Conference on ADHD, on November 16-18, 1998 concluded that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is not a disease at all.
ADHD Consensus Conference Panel,
November 18, 1998:
Child psychiatrist, Peter S. Jensen, from Columbia University (Opposing View, 8/15/2000 USA Today) advocates the legal enforcement of drug treatment for ADHD, but he concedes that not all children respond to medication:"Not all children (with ADHD) respond to medication and some benefit from behavioral therapy. Yet society requires that children's caretakers see that children get immunized, schooled, fed and clothed and receive treatments for other disorders such as asthma and diabetes."
It is a fact that no evidence has been found of any brain abnormality or chemical imbalance in the brains of patients diagnosed with ADHD.
Nevertheless, some medical doctors and drug companies are pushing for legislation to be passed in favor of diagnosing children with ADHD, and treating them with schedule II drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta, and Adderall.
According to neurologist Dr.Fred A. Baughman Jr. MD:
"The only actual disease/abnormality/pathology for which Schedule II Controlled Substances are prescribed is narcolepsy. It accounts for approximately 1/10th of one percent of all such prescriptions while contrived, invented, fraudulent, ADHD accounts for 99.9 percent. Further--we see to it that our children—American children—consume 90-95 percent of the world’s supply of such addictive, dangerous, drugs."
Dr Baughman has this to say about ADHD:
"First it was boys, 6 and 7, and they outgrew it by their teens. Next, they didn't outgrow it-it lasted through adolescence. Then it lasted through adulthood... As of July, 1999, it affects girls-women too. As of 2000/2001, it affects infants, toddlers, and preschoolers as well, boys, girls, black white, brown and yellow; it is an equal opportunity invented, fraudulent 'disease' that allows each and every one to have their Schedule II, controlled, Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, Dex, 'speed', 'ice', just as legal as you please. This is the 'epidemiology' of the 'disease' that has taken it from 150,000 in 1970, when the government first recognized it as a 'health problem' to 6 million today."
According to correspondent
Rhonda Rowland of the
About 20-million prescriptions were written in the USA in the year 2000 for stimulant drugs. The number of prescriptions written for the drugs has steadily increased since 1996 when about 14-million were written.
In the August 21, 2001 Wall Street Journal (online) editor, Tunku Varadarajan wrote:
"Twelve percent of all American boys between 6 and 14 have been diagnosed with "attention deficit" problems. (I get these figures from the International Narcotics Control Board, a United Nations agency.) These children all take medication--Schedule II drugs, which share the pharmacological effects of amphetamine, methamphetamine and cocaine--to sharpen their short-term attention span. Four million American children take such medication. Toddlers, and children under five, are being prescribed such medication. Ninety percent of all Ritalin popped in the world is popped in America."
Not only is there a push to prescribe Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, etc for these children...the parents can be taken to court if they decide to stop the medication.
Usually, the only time legal authorities intervene in parental decision-making, is in the event of a medical emergency in which the life of the child is in jeopardy and immediate treatment that is truly life-saving is not being provided by the parents.
Such might be the case with blood loss requiring a transfusion, or in the case of immunization in the face of a grave epidemic, but this is not the case with ADHD.

There are drug dealers in the public schools, except that the drug dealer is wearing a nurse's uniform.
