What is causing the ADHD epidemic?
Is it a heightened awareness of the disorder, over diagnosis or something more?
While those are definitely factors in the increase of children being put on stimulants after an ADHD diagnosis, how about a diet filled with high fructose sugars, chemicals and artificial dyes? How about sleep deprivation?
A recent article published by William G. Wilkoff, MD discusses the relationship between sleep deprived children and hyperactivity. They were often impatience and easily distractable. He reports that the North American Lifestyle is causing children to have faster paced lives and receive less sleep.
Today children are also more often than not, accustomed to using some sort are smart device before bed, which can severely hinder the quality of sleep.
It is clear that inflammatory responses in the brain as a result of exposure to different environmental and genetic risk factors plays a significant role in human behavior and in ADHD.
