Induced birthing procedures using synthetic oxytocin (pitocin) have proven to increase the risk of ADHD. In a study of 300 children whose mothers received Pitocin at birth to induce labor, 80 % of the children were diagnosed with ADHD. While these techniques can sometimes save lives, they are over used simply to make the birthing process more convenient for doctors and hospitals. 25% of mothers in the US receive Pitocin during labor. John Gray, Ph.D.
I have done countless psycho-social intakes for children and families.  One question I have learned (by experience) to ask is if the birth was induced with pitocin.   I get the families in my office 5 to 10 years later.  Why is this information not being brought to the forefront?
I am usually not a conspiracy theorist.   But you need to know.
Blessing to you.  Susan
