FDA Permits the Marketing of a Device That Shocks Children to Treat ADHD

The FDA just approved a new treatment for children with “ADHD,” it is a device that attaches to the child’s forehead and sends shocks into the kid’s nervous system. The FDA has apparently ignored studies that have examined data on children receiving an ADHD diagnosis and exposed that the disorder is largely, if not entirely fictional. Teachers, psychologists and psychiatrists are still diagnosing kids with a disorder and drugging them for being the youngest in the classroom.

If we wanted to know how far parents can be indoctrinated by pediatric “experts,” the answer is: pretty damn far. These quacks proclaim that if kids deviate from the prescribed norm, then something is wrong with them and they have a disorder. We all should have known something was up when they were prescribing the kids amphetamines, but now they are zapping their brains too, all because they act like kids and because they have normal brain development.

Parents are intimidated and worry that there is something wrong with their babies. Every child matures in their own way, in their own time, but now we can electrocute their brains and maybe that will change things up.

The FDA announced they are permitting the marketing and sale of NeuroSigma’s Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System for children with ADHD. The eTNS system is the first non-drug treatment for ADHD that the FDA has approved for marketing. The treatment of electrocuting children’s brains will be intended for those ages 7 to 12.

The evidence used to convince the FDA was a trial on just 62 children, who had their brains zapped every night for four weeks and were judged by doctors to have fewer symptoms, whatever that means. Obviously electrocuting some poor kid’s brain every night for a month is likely going to slow them down.
