“The only biochemical imbalances in the brains of those who see a psychiatrist … are those that are put in there by a psychiatrist”

How many people do you know that are on psychiatric or psychotropic drugs of one form or another for maladies that run the gamut from depression to hyperactivity? It is estimated that over seventy million Americans are on mind altering drugs (over 20% of the entire country’s population) and the proof that these drugs are doing more damage to these individuals than any possible positive benefits mounts daily.
With Big Pharmaceutical paying out damages and fines that total well into the billions for prescribed drugs ranging form antidepressants to tranquilizers, anti-psychotic drugs, mood stabilizers, stimulants and more, why does this scourge on America continue … PROFIT plain and simple!
When the damages paid out are insignificant compared to the profit derived by Big Pharmaceutical, with the complicity of a bought and paid for government healthcare infrastructure who’s motto is “Protecting lives and your health 24/7” … well you get the drift.
Deaths from legal and prescribed drugs in this country far outnumber deaths from illegal drugs, so where is the war on so called legal drugs? Our military and veterans are massively over prescribed these psychotropics to a point that their suicide rate is a serious shame on the conscience of America and yes the causality is a fact. Our children are drugged at the drop of a hat and, in a rising number of cases, against the will and wishes of their parents turning them into nonproductive Zombies manufactured by the state.
The statistics don’t and can’t lie, so lets delve a little deeper into them. Here is an excerpt from an article written By Mike Adams of Natural News (see article HERE)
Every day 290 people are killed by FDA-approved prescription drugs, and that’s the conservative number published by the Journal of the American Medical Association.
As no one seems to believe these numbers are real, I’ll quote the source: The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Vol 284, No 4, July 26th 2000, authored by Dr Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.
That study, which is twelve years old (TLB: Now 14 years old) — and drug deaths have risen considerably since then — documents 106,000 deaths per year from the “adverse effects” of FDA-approved prescription medications.
To reach this number from outbreaks of violent shootings, you’d have to see an Aurora Colorado Batman movie massacre take place every HOUR of every day, 365 days a year. If a massacre of people using slugs of lead is bad, why is a massacre of people using deadly chemicals perfectly acceptable?
TLB: America prides herself with having the most advanced healthcare system on this planet … REALLY? Then explain this: out of the 783,936 annual deaths from conventional medicine mistakes (YEA I said that, see above excerpt link), WELL OVER 100,000 of those are the result of prescription drug use! Now simple math will tell you that in the past 14+ years since the publication of these findings (and using old and outdated statistics) approximately 1.5 MILLION Americans have lost their lives to this avoidable blight. What is this actual present day number on a global scale? Please remember this is only what we are aware of, or what has been reported, possibly the just tip of the proverbial iceberg, and with no real information available as to the actual scope of this massive problem today … Hmmm … WHY?
It is time for America to wake up to the Legal Massacre of Untold Innocents all in the name of PROFIT! Or is it something even more sinister … ???
