A multi-billion. Dollar settlement. Now, he has his sights set on a new target a pharmaceutical, industry. NBC's. Cynthia mcfadden has, more in our series, one nation overdosed. Attorney. Mike Moore did what even his mother thought was impossible, one, a two hundred and forty six billion dollar judgment against, big tobacco the, most historic. Public. Health achievement. In, history, his. Role in that victory memorialized. In the movie The Insider in which he played himself Michael, Moore he's. Now putting that experience, to work against, Big Pharma, charging. That opioid manufacturers. Are largely responsible for, the raging, epidemic you've. Called the tobacco industry, the most corrupt, and evil corporate, animal, that's ever been created in this country's history that's, right what. Do you say about Big Pharma they're pretty evil and, basically they did the same thing that tobacco companies did, they. Lied about the addictive nature of. The opioids, and then they went out and marketed, these things and told doctors, everywhere I can't say and it's created this huge opioid, epidemic I mean there are three million, opioid, addicts out, there in the country right now most. Of whom began with, prescriptions, eighty percent of them more, calls out one company in particular Purdue. Pharma for, videos like this one the, rate of addiction, amongst, pain patients. Who are treated by doctors, is much less than 1% when, you train your workforce. Thousands. Of salespeople to go, out and tell doctors, that there's less than 1%, chance of, addiction, if you take this drug and you, know that. There's no study that you've done and no reliable, study, that anybody else has ever done that says that then. Of course you're telling a lie of course you are, Perdue told NBC, that Moore's assessment, is deeply, flawed that, oxycotin, represents, less than 2% of current opioid prescriptions, and that today's crisis, is driven by illegal. Trafficking, and abuse of heroin, and illicit, fentanyl. But Moore and his colleagues, have already recruited, 23. States to the cause you're, gonna win this fight I'm gonna win this fight I'm gonna keep kicking them until they give up cynthia, mcfadden NBC, News New, York still. Ahead tonight diagnosing. ADHD. The new guidance, for concerned, parents, to catch it and treat it in young children also. Wheeler the magic and the majesty, of snapshots, just released from the official, royal wedding, album. We're. Back now with important, health news a potential. Major leap forward in, diagnosing. ADHD. In children new. Evidence shows it's not just a behavioral.
Problem But a biological, condition, related to brain development suggesting. It can be diagnosed, at an early age NBC's. Rehema Ellis explains. Nathan. Vanna's was only three years old when, his mother noticed, something, wasn't quite right you really needed to make eye contact with, him to. Get him to listen by. 5:00 he was diagnosed, with ADHD ADHD. Is, a very real, biological. Condition, that is. Manifest. Very early on in life in. Fact as early, as four years old according, to a new study researchers, compared. Brain scans of 90 young children, and found, those with ADHD, symptoms. Also, had smaller brain volume, especially. In the frontal lobe the area, that controls motor function, attention, and decision-making. That sounds startling. Maduk to me it's not subtle it, was throughout the brain. Neuropsychologist. Mark Mahone says the study does not recommend, more children have brain scans but, it does suggest parents. Should have children tested as soon, as they show symptoms like, excessive, talking, and extreme, trouble concentrating because. With treatment, some children can manage the symptoms, the, findings do suggest that we should screen, earlier, for ADHD. Just like we screen earlier for other childhood. Conditions, especially things like developmental. Delay or autism I'm happy, that we finally figured. Out what, the problem is and how we can treat it with, therapy, and medication. Nathan's, improving, as this, discovery, shows early. Intervention, makes a difference, Rehema. Ellis NBC, News Baltimore. Coming.
