The Lancet: "ADHD is not purely a social construct"

Purely a social construct? I never thought that, but others did -- and do. Partly a social construct, I would have said. So, this study is not exactly good news but it does help explain a few things.

From The Lancet medical journal in London:

Our findings provide genetic evidence of an increased rate of large CNVs in individuals with ADHD and suggest that ADHD is not purely a social construct.
Read the summary at Huff Post and others also covered the study. If you had ADHD, you would already be Googling.
