The "Chemical Imbalance" Fraud

"Patients have been diagnosed with 'chemical imbalances,' despite the fact that no test exists to support such a claim, and that there is no real conception of what a correct chemical balance would look like."10

David Kaiser

  • There is no scientific evidence proving that a chemical imbalance in the brain is responsible for the symptoms attributed to ADHD, or that ADHD is a "brain-based disease," yet this is repeatedly claimed as fact by psychiatrists. In 1998, a U.S. National Institutes of Health Conference of the world's leading ADHD experts, was forced to conclude that there is no data confirming it as a brain dysfunction.11

  • Gene R. Haislip, Deputy Assistant Administrator, Office of Diversion Control, Drug Enforcement Administration: "This agency has not made a determination of whether ADHD is a disease or a syndrome... We are also unaware that ADHD has been validated as a biologic/organic syndrome or disease."12
