News and Opinion
In 1991, British sports presenter and celebrity David Icke appeared on a popular TV chat show dressed from head to foot in turquoise and claimed to be the son of God. It emerged that Icke now felt that presenting sports programs was no longer what his life was about; now he was on a mission to prevent the world from being destroyed by the forces of darkness, and a key part of his mission was the wearing of turquoise at all times.
Perhaps as much as 10% of American children are currently taking Ritalin. They are taking Ritalin not because they have a physical medical problem, but because they can’t concentrate in schools or are too “hyper” at home. But a growing body of evidence indicates that many of these children may suffer long-term health problems as a result of the drugs they are being prescribed. Maybe it’s time to ask whether giving children Ritalin is really any different to a pusher selling them amphetamines on the street.
