ADD/ADHD and Lead Exposure
by Extended Health
Did you know that many of the symptoms of ADD/ADHD could be caused by exposure to Lead and other toxic metals?
Lead is a potent toxin very commonly associated with a host of neurobehavioral problems in children, including hyperactivity, attention deficit, and other learning disorders. A leading expert on the effects of lead toxicity in children, Dr. H.L. Needlemen of the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, has conducted scores of studies over the last 20 years clearly establishing the link between lead levels in children and specific hyperactive and attention deficit behavior traits.
Follow-up studies indicate that these effects often persist into adulthood. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, an estimated one out of every six children in the United States has blood lead levels in the toxic range. What's more, researchers have discovered that the amount of lead necessary to produce central nervous system effects is far lower than previously realized.

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) can severely disrupt a child's education and socialization process, incurring life-long effects if not properly diagnosed and treated. Increasingly, there is a tendency to prescribe stimulant medications, such as Ritalin (methylphenidate), to treat these types of disorders. While prescription drugs may sometimes be necessary for treatment, recently there have been reports of an epidemic of hasty misdiagnoses and over prescription. In fact, the rate of methylphenidate prescriptions for children in the U.S. has jumped three to six times in the last decade alone. In some locales, as many as 8-10% of elementary public school children take prescription drugs for ADHD symptoms.
