“A Generation of Stimulation Junkies: Television, ADD and ADHD”


Mod Vive reports that “The rampant self-diagnosing of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is out of control. There is also an increasing amount of people saying they have adult-onset Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Coincidentally, the amount of television being watched is out of control . . . As it turns out, there is an association between the time spent in front of a screen and the increase in the diagnosis of these “diseases” known as ADHD or ADD. Current research is starting to shed some interesting light on the association between the two.”
