      <Body xmlns="">
            <p>Scientists have yet to discover the precise cause or causes of
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but increasing evidence  points to biological factors
rather than dysfunctional families, too much television, poor
schooling, food allergies, refined sugar, food additives or
other environmental factors. Undetectable brain damage or minor
head trauma, once theorized as a possible cause of ADHD, also have
been largely disproved. Scientists recently have discovered that
parts of the brain's frontal lobe and basal ganglia are reduced
by about 10 percent in size and activity in children with ADHD.</p>
            <p>Clearly, any self-blame or guilt on the part of parents of ADHD
children is counterproductive. </p>
            <p>Using positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, scientists
at the National Institute of Mental Health demonstrated a
link between a person's ability to pay continued attention and
the level of activity in certain areas of the brain. In people
with ADHD, the brain areas that control attention used less
glucose, indicating that those areas were less active. It appears
from this research that a lower level of activity in some parts
of the brain may cause inattention. Why this happens in some
people but not others is under investigation.</p>
            <p>Among theories being tested is whether prenatal exposure to
cigarette smoke, crack-cocaine, alcohol or other substances
raises a child's risk for ADHD.</p>
            <p><b>ADHD in the genes</b></p>
            <p>There are reasons to believe that ADHD or the tendency toward
the disorder may have a genetic component. For instance, most
ADHD kids have at last one blood relative with an attention
disorder. At least one in three fathers who had ADHD symptoms in
their youth have children with ADHD tendencies. Another study,
which analyzed data from 1,938 Australian families with twins and
other children ages 4 to 12, found when one twin had ADHD,
there was a 91 percent chance that the other identical twin would
also have it.</p>
