The known world is full of deception. What one sees with the naked eye is not necessarily what truly exists. Investigation and research discoveries uncover pollution that is constantly brewing and a number of unexplained illnesses that seem to just pop out of nowhere to gain prevalence and fame.

Where did it come from? Where is its future? The initial report of this problem disease was published in 1902; at that time, it was entitled “morbid defect of moral control”. In 1922, it was renamed “post encephalitic behavior disorder”. The name of this illness has changed at least 13 times. Today, it is called Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Quite a number of people believe it is an invented disorder created by engineers who produce diseases and disorders to justify, and introduce prescription medications for profit and control purposes, “scientists who want to sell drugs”.
