Pharmaceutical executives and researchers are not focused on health. Many years ago I coined the term pharmaceutical terrorism and I have pointed my finger as hard as possible on the special case of psychiatric drugs and how they provoke a madness that makes it possible for users to go on the rampage. We hardly ever read after a mass shooting what drugs were being used by the shooter showing us there is a conspiracy of silence. The mass media is in bed with pharmaceutical companies because of the advertising dollars. The mass media has no integrity, no shame and represents fiction as facts across a full spectrum of issues.
Certain groups of corporations, with government support, have created a toxic hell on our planet. It is a special kind of hell that gets more toxic each year killing more people as each year passes. Poison for money is the name of the game. We dump up to 400 million tonnes of heavy metals, toxic sludge and other waste into oceans and rivers each year. According to a new landmark report, “We are projecting that between 500,000 and one million species could face oblivion due to pollution and habitat degradation.” Much of the pollution is pharmaceutical.
Pharmaceuticals are nasty chemicals. One of the worst offenders is a new cholesterol-lowering medication that is associated with 25 percent severe adverse effects yet it is FDA approved. Pharmaceuticals get into the brain and gum up the works with dramatic negative affects.
Acetaminophen, for example, which is a potent physical painkiller reduces empathy for other people’s suffering – blunts physical and social pain by reducing activation in brain areas (i.e. anterior insula and anterior cingulate) thought to be related to emotional awareness and motivation. Said another way, acetaminophen impairs affective processes related to the experience of positive empathy. Acetaminophen reduces personal pleasure and other-directed empathetic feelings.
“A substantial amount of research shows that understanding and sharing in other people’s pleasurable experiences foster psychological health, interpersonal trust, intimacy, and a pro-social orientation, both for the source and the recipient of positive empathy. Acetaminophen is one of the most popular medicines in the USA (Kaufman et al., 2002) and easily accessible over the counter. Furthermore, acetaminophen is a potent analgesic, reducing pain in response to heat, electric shock, or cold. In addition to these effects on pain, acetaminophen also reduces psychological reactivity. Thus, acetaminophen affects a broad spectrum of psychological processes that are not limited to the processing of physical pain.”
“Because acetaminophen appears to blunt responsiveness for one’s own pain and for the pain of others in brain areas overlapping with those involved in positive empathy, researchers have hypothesize that acetaminophen impairs people’s ability to experience empathy for others’ positive experiences.”
“Positive empathy provides part of the “social glue” from which interpersonal bonds are built and strengthened (Morelli et al., 2015). As such, taking pleasure from the good fortune of others fosters interpersonal connection, trust, and – ultimately – prosocial behavior (Reis et al., 2010; Morelli et al., 2014; Andreychik and Migliaccio, 2015), thus providing important societal benefits. These benefits have to be viewed in the context of the amount of people regularly consuming acetaminophen. An estimated quarter of all US American adults take a drug containing acetaminophen every week (Kaufman et al., 2002).”
Mass shooters, people who kill their kids, themselves and politicians, who are suiciding the entire human race with their insane ideas, all share one thing in common, little to no empathy for others.
George Monbiot, writing for The Guardian said, “The destruction of the Earth is a crime. It should be prosecuted. There are no effective safeguards preventing a few powerful people, companies or states from wreaking havoc for the sake of profit or power. Though their actions may lead to the death of millions, they know they can’t be touched. Their impunity, as they engage in potential mass murder, reveals a gaping hole in international law. Thus crimes against humanity should not be matters for negotiation but for prosecution.”
Antidepressants have serious and potentially fatal adverse effects, cause potentially permanent brain damage, increase the risk of suicide and violent behavior in both children and adults, and increase the frequency and chronicity of depression. Perhaps the best known psychological side effect of SSRIs is “amotivational syndrome”, a condition with symptoms that are clinically similar to those that develop when the frontal lobes of the brain are damaged. The syndrome is characterized by apathy, disinhibited behavior, demotivation and a personality change similar to the effects of lobotomy (Marangell et al. 2001, p.1059). All psychoactive drugs, including antidepressants, are known to blunt our emotional responses to some extent.
Andrea Yates drowned her five children in a bathtub. She was on two of these SSRI antidepressants, at maximum dose. There had been an adjustment in the medication two days before this tragedy happened.
Agitation is such a common side effect with SSRIs that the drug companies have consistently sought to hide it during clinical trials by prescribing a tranquilizer or sedative along with the antidepressant. Studies by Eli Lilly employees found that between 21% and 28% of patients taking Prozac experienced insomnia, agitation, anxiety, nervousness and restlessness, with the highest rates among people taking the highest doses (Beasley et al. 2001).
The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that about 9.5 percent of people 18 and older suffer from a mood disorder. A 2009 study by Columbia University showed that as many as 10 percent of Americans are taking antidepressants.
We have seen in the news experts saying that psychiatric drugs like Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft are dangerous with psychiatrists going as far as declaring, “Clinical evidence does not justify the use of antidepressants” and “The bottom line is that we really don’t have any good evidence that these drugs work.”
Donald Shell of Gillette, WY, shot his wife, daughter, baby granddaughter, and then himself, after taking only two doses of Paxil. This last summer, a jury ruled that the Paxil was the cause for this, and awarded his family $6.4M.
On June 19, 2003, the FDA, following the lead of the British MCA, ruled that Paxil should not be given to kids 18 or under, because of the increased risk of suicidal impulses. With 50,000+ suicides in America each year, and the growing phenomena of mass murders and murder/suicide, this is clearly an issue that demands honest investigation, something that obviously was not done before allowing pilots to fly while under the influence of these drugs.
In the Lacuzong case, a man with no prior history of violence, drowned his two children and then himself in the same bathtub. The makers of Paxil settled that case.
Health Canada approved a new warning label for Paxil that read, in part: “A small number of patients taking drugs of this type may feel worse instead of better. For example, they may experience unusual feelings of agitation, hostility or anxiety, or have impulsive or disturbing thoughts, such as thoughts of self-harm or harm to others.
Research shows long-term exposure to psychiatric drugs has proven to be far more dangerous than originally anticipated, and includes the threat of medication-induced obesity, diabetes, heart disease, irreversible abnormal movements, emotional and cognitive disability, and an overall deterioration in the patient’s clinical condition and quality of life.
Jon Rappoport says, “From this point on, the rest of the events in Newtown, Connecticut will be brought to you by Merck, Glaxo, and Pfizer. It always happens at these mass murder events. The grief counselors. The social service workers. The psychologists. They pour in. And they end up referring people to psychiatrists, who will in turn prescribe some of the very drugs that trigger murder and suicide. The drugs that cause people to kill. The sequence is always the same, because it’s set up that way. After the mass murders and the shock and the horror, the grief industry arrives, and then come the referrals to psychiatric drug pushers, along with the memorials and the “healing.”
The word poison was first recorded in Middle English in a work composed around the year 1200. A poison is any substance that when introduced into or absorbed by a living organism, destroys life or injures health. Poison is defined as any substance capable of producing a morbid, noxious or deadly effect. A poison is a material that inhibits other substances, especially enzymes, and the vital biochemical processes they are involved in. Enzymes are crucial because every chemical change that takes place to repair tissue or to assimilate food involves the activity of enzymes. Without enzyme activity there is no biological activity, no life.
Why was poisoning such a popular way of offing one’s adversaries? Because the implementation could be very easy, and the action was often difficult to detect – a subtly poisoned drink was generally much harder to trace to its source than a crossbow bolt in the back.
We are very dumb ducks allowing pharmaceutical companies to get away with murder and worse. They are destroying health more than they are healing anyone. And as they go on year after year they pollute the environment with more and more antibiotics and a host of other pharmaceuticals. Human ugliness has reached a zenith in modern medicine, which bows before the all mighty power of the pharmaceutical industry.
