Mental Attitude: ADHD Appears to Increase Risk of Premature Death.

A new report finds that individuals with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more than twice as likely to suffer an early death — most likely from accidents — than those without ADHD. Lead researcher Dr. Soren Dalsgaard adds, “Our results add to the overwhelming existing evidence that ADHD is a true disorder and should not be taken lightly… Although ADHD doubles the risk [of premature death], it is important to note that the absolute risk is very low.” The Lancet, February 2015
