ADHD IN CHILDREN LINKED TO OBESITY LATER IN LIFE

A new study from the medical journal Pediatrics has determined that men who were diagnosed with ADHD as children, were twice as likely to be OBESE in later life (my guess is that it has a great deal not to do with the diagnosis itself, but in the drugs these kids are given, and their GUT HEALTH).  For more information on the best ways to deal with both problems, please follow the links.  Just be aware that the authors declared support from Eli Lilly, Shire Pharmaceuticals, GLAXOSMITHKLINE, and Genopharm.  This means that soon, these companies will be coming out with new drugs for said problems.  Isn’t “EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE” just grand?
