Methylphenidate, sold under various trade names, Ritalin being one of the most commonly known, is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the phenethylamine and piperidine classes that is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. The original patent was owned by CIBA, now Novartis Corporation. It was first licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1955 for treating what was then known as hyperactivity. Medical use began in 1960; the drug has become increasingly prescribed since the 1990s, when the diagnosis of ADHD became more widely accepted. Between 2007 and 2012 methylphenidate prescriptions increased by 50% in the United Kingdom and in 2013 global methylphenidate consumption increased to 2.4 billion doses, a 66% increase from the year before. The United States continues to account for more than 80% of global consumption.

Spielberg Confused by Decrease in UFO Sightings
Spielberg says, "There are millions of video cameras out there and they're picking up less videos of UFOs, alleged UFOs, than we picked up in the 1970s and 1980s. There's 150 per cent more cameras, so why are we getting less from up there?

The point, again, is that the sightings aren’t nearly as exciting as they were forty or fifty years ago, and I have no explanation for that. Maybe it’s all just a matter of perspective.

So in your opinion, what is the correlation with the Internet?
824–851 MHz: Cellular A & B franchises, terminal (mobile phone) (formerly TV channels 73–77)
470–862 MHz: Previously used for analogue TV channels 21–69 (until 2012).

They could've tested a million people to prove phones are safe but then stopped testing.
We don't know if the one million and first to be tested would've gone all zombie and gone on a killing spree.
We can only test things so many times before we declare them safe or there wouldn't be anything finished in the testing phase.
There's always exceptions.
