I have heard this for years. So why is it sold?
The rifle maker who listed all of the murderers that used prescription drugs died in a car crash a few days ago...things are getting weird.
Before I’ll listen to one word this guy says, I want to know if he is at all connected to Scientology.
What the pharmaceutical companies and physicians won’t tell you is that there is no difference between homocidal and suicidal thoughts. They only mention suicidal thoughts to protect themselves from lawsuits from those who use such medications.
The medical profession now is addicted to giving pills for problems that would not exist in a society where there are close family ties, where friends can be relied on and everyone is expected to pitch in, roll up their sleeves and do something constructive.
Secrecy was required, but people talk...
Several judges have questioned Breggin’s credibility as an expert witness. For example, a Maryland judge in a medical malpractice case in 1995 said, “I believe that his bias in this case is blinding... he was mistaken in a lot of the factual basis for which he expressed his opinion.”
In that same year a Virginia judge excluded Breggin’s testimony stating, “This court finds that the evidence of Peter Breggin, as a purported expert, fails nearly all particulars under the standard set forth in Daubert and its progeny.... Simply put, the Court believes that Dr. Breggin’s opinions do not rise to the level of an opinion based on ‘good science.’”
Have you know who read this article!!!
Seeing as we’re on the subject of psychological problems caused by medication and the pharmaceutical industry’s efforts to conceal the harm their products are causing, I wonder if I could mention a pet topic of mine: artificial hormones in pregnancy.
The human body has an enormously complex regulatory system based around steroidal hormones. The most commonly known ones are testosterone, progesterone, estradiol, cortisone and aldosterone, but there are dozens of others along with a whole host of enzyme systems that manufacture, change or destroy each type of hormone. There are a few main types of receptors targeted by these hormones (androgen, estrogen, progesterone, corticosteroid and mineralocorticoid), but each receptor type has many subtypes with differing binding affinities to these molecules. Basically it’s an enormously complex signalling and control system with many inbuilt checks and balances, that controls a waide variety of body functions, everything from blood pressure to muscle growth.
The pharmaceutical industry has developed a wide range of artificial versions of these hormones, including anabolic steroids, contraceptive hormones and corticosteroids such as prednisone. Collectively, artificial hormones are probably the single most widely used class of drugs there are in the entirety of medicine.
In adults, artificial hormones can perform many useful and beneficial medical functions, but I’ve uncovered a dark side to them which I don’t think anyone’s properly appreciated before. When they’re given to a pregnant woman, they cause misdirected development in her unborn child. They can produce malformed or missing limbs, serious abnormalities of major organs, infertility, intersexed or opposite-sexed development, and abnormalities of brain development that result in serious mental illnesses later in life. The specific thing that got me started on this was looking at the bizarre and horrific situation of people who were born with a woman’s brain in a man’s body after being exposed to one of these substances (a drug called DES), but along the way I’ve discovered several other groups of people affected in other, equally horrific ways too. The pharmaceutical industry has so far done a very good job of covering things up, and I think they’ve treated it as a series of separate disasters rather than realising that the problem lies with artificial hormones as a whole.
They disrupt the normal workings of the steroid hormone system.
In adults that doesn’t matter too much. It results in side effects, but they’re only temporary and go away once the medication is discontinued. In the unborn child it’s a whole different story though. You get misdirected development, that can affect any part of the body or brain, depending on what the drug is and at what stage of pregnancy it was administered. Once something has been built wrong, it stays that way for the remainder of that person’s life.
I was wondering if there’s any way people here in Free Republic can help me raise awareness of the problem. I’ve spent the best part of 2 years looking into this, and there definitely is a problem as far as a drug called DES is concerned, but I think it goes well beyond that. If you’ve wondered why so many bizarre and outlandish things have been happening lately, and so many crazy people doing crazy things, here is your answer.
I added a couple of comments to a story earlier about a transsexual basketball player who shows all the signs of being a victim of DES:
Please, have a think about what I’ve said there. This is no joke. To the best of my knowledge, a colossal medical disaster has taken place and is continuing to take place affecting literally millions of people. Everyone I’ve tried contacting so far has either ignored me or at least not been sufficiently inspired to act. As I see it, I’ve been given this one chance to do a tremendous good, but so far I’ve failed, and with each day that passes, more pregnant women are being given these drugs and more babies will be born with lifelong problems and disabilities as a result. Is there any way you people can help me raise awareness of what these drugs can do to the unborn child?
Depressed people are often suicidal. Maybe the medication wasnt strong enough?
Antidepressent use has always had the risk of suicide, ever since the first crude versions came out in the seventies.
Sometimes a severely depressed person is so depressed they are physically unable to do much. I would call it face-down-on-the-bed depressed.
So they are given an antidepressant. So they start improving. Sometimes they gain physical energy faster than their emotions improve. So a profoundly depressed person who couldnt open a can of peas previously, is now still profoundly depressed but can move around and do things, Like kill themselves.
If they were just able to wait a bit longer, their mood would catch up with their physical response.
