Top psychologist: "We got this WRONG" [Roundup]
Top psychologist says we need to rethink mental health and more

Today's top story is a rare moment of self-reflection from a top psychologist, who says we're misdiagnosing children with ADD.
If you've been paying attention to the way we treat children, it's obvious something is wrong.
And PhD researcher Jonathan Leo found that the children who most frequently receive ADD diagnoses are simply the youngest kids, or the kids who haven't yet learned to sit still in a classroom.
According to him, “Medicating the younger children in the classroom suggests that the medical community has mislabeled normal brain development as a pathology.”
Children haven't been able to sit still for all of human history. And yet all of a sudden it's a disease that needs to be medicated with powerful amphetamine stimulants.
Heck, I've seen it with adults.
Maybe the problem isn't that people need medication to do their job; maybe the problem is that their job requires them to stare at spreadsheets in a cubicle for 10 hours a day...
It's time to rethink using medicine to treat normal human behavior.
Next up, there's a fascinating story that our own team from the Center for New Vitality has been covering.
It's about AV-47 — a “miracle compound” that may be more effective than chemotherapy in fighting cancer. In one study, it nearly DOUBLED the survival rate of patients with stage 3 melanoma. Discover that story and much more in our special video, The Vital Truth.
