(WKBW/THE LANCET) An important study is out now, on what may cause Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in children.
This new British study finds ADHD linked to genetics.
Researchers found that children with ADHD were more likely to have small DNA segments duplicated or missing.
Researchers hope the findings will help overcome the stigma
associated with ADHD, which is typically dismissed as a product of bad parenting or poor diet.
