Recent information has shown that treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), with psychotropic drugs such as Ritalin, can lead to depression in adult life through drug induced “complex behavioral adaptations”. 

Recent information has also shown that children with ADHD appear to have lower than normal levels of the healthy fish oil fats, EPA and DHA.  DHA has been shown to be a key component of healthy nervous system development and decreased levels have been associated with depression. 

This information is so important because it suggests that supplementation with fish oil may be useful in the treatment of children with ADHD, and if this is the case, would be a method of treatment without the damaging side effects of psychotropic drugs.

Not only is Johnson and Johnson’s “No More Tears” shampoo exposing our infants and young children to carcinogens but the carcinogens have also been shown to trigger rashes and other skin inflammation issues.
