Ritalin as a brain booster backed19th June 2009
UK bioethics expert Professor John Harris from the University of Manchester says that healthy people should be able to take the anti-hyperactivity drug Ritalin to boost brain power.
Writing on the British Medical Journal website, he said many students were already using the drug - which is illegal without prescription in the UK – but he said that if it was deemed safe for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, adults should also be able to take it. There is evidence that adults use Ritalin to enhance their mental ability.
