The drug industry has come up with yet another phony mental illness that it says afflicts as many as 2 million children: "Sluggish Cognitive Tempo," or SCT, one of the most ridiculous counterfeit diseases yet. According to a description of the "disease" published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, children with SCT are basically daydreamers, which Big Pharma is now using as a catch-net classification for children who can't be declared as having attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The emergence of SCT comes as parents, medical professionals and child psychologists increasingly question the validity of the millions of ADHD diagnoses that are really just cases of kids being kids. In order to keep these children drugged up and the cash flowing, the psychiatric and drug industries basically invented SCT as a fallback. In other words, when an ADHD diagnosis doesn't fly, declare the child to have SCT.
