Re "Daydreaming could be seen as attention disorder" (April 12): Just when you thought the pharmaceutical industry couldn't get less credible, they come out with a diagnosis of sluggish cognitive tempo.

Guess who is funding those studies? A good portion of modern psychiatry is pseudo-science created to support the drug industry. Studies have shown that physicians who specialize in psychiatry take more money from the pharmaceutical industry than any other specialty. Thanks to Big Pharma and their agents in the field, Americans drug their kids more than any other nation.
