3 Comments: Is ADHD Genetic? Yes and No

  1. How the hell is the nicotine in cigarettes, an addictive STIMULANT that many mother’s imbibe during pregnancy not listed as a household toxin and potential cause?! This seems misleading and suspicious at best.

  2. Genetics works on many levels. If your children can ‘have your smile’ they can also ‘have your ADHD’. No guarantees good or bad. Don’t feel bad about it; just do the best you can.
