    As I recall from my school days, kids were hyperactive before those
    bad pesticides were even available. Certain families generated more
    ADHD kids than others and it was put down as nervous temperament.
    Modern parents are always scapegoating external forces for producing
    flawed or faulty behavior in there little darlings "cause it couldn't
    be their fault, nay, never.

    You have _no idea_ how glad I am to see that article saying that this
    doesn't necessarily _cause_ ADHD. Because, seriously? Yeah.

    My observation is they all use the same mumbo-jumbo guarded wording,
    regardless of the extent to which the study may or may not have
    demonstrated causation.
