TeenScreen as Junk Science
I thank the British medical community for being the first to
take action concerning the dangers of psychiatric drugs on the human body.
And the BMJ for its most recent article concerning TeenScreen.
I understand that publishing the full story may be controversial, but
be stated that billions of dollars are at stake for the pharmaceutical
in finding new markets for its drugs. The Orwellian-named and -conceived
New Freedom Commission on Mental Health was a boon to the industry in
setting the agenda for the psychiatric drugging of every single American,
beginning with children as an accesible market in the public school
If there is any insanity requiring intervention, it is the idea that
normal life responses as "mental illnesses" to effect the sale of one's
is ethical or useful. The second illogic is that a collection of questions
interpretations of their answers can be used to determine a person's
state, without further investigation, including tests for any of the
sources of mental anguish resulting from physical conditions. The third
that, despite ample evidence that SSRIs lead to suicide, such drugs are
touted as the solution to suicide in children.
Having watched and investigated the psychiatric and pharmaceutical
a number of years, I find I have no argument with its senior members when
they admit to having no clue about the cause of or cure for mental
“We do not know the causes (of psychiatric disorders). We don’t have
methods of ‘curing’ these illnesses yet.” Director of the U.S. National
of Mental Health, Rex Cowdry, 1995.
“The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the
is gone. In the future, the mentally ill will have to learn to live with
illness.” Norman Sartorius, president of the World Psychiatric
This is not the forum for detailing exactly why psychiatry is junk
suffice to say, if it were not, it would obtain some positive results. Yet
after study not paid for by pharmaceutical companies pushing their own
drugs, shows harmful effects and less positive outcomes than sugar pills.
The main problem with their theory of a chemical imbalance in the
the cause of behavioral disorders is that no tests exist to determine the
chemical status of a person’s brain while he is living, and no delivery
exists to replenish any supposed "prozac deficiency," for instance, to a
specific part of the brain.
But this doesn’t discourage psychs from misdiagnosing
millions of people as having these “diseases.” Or pharmaceutical companies
from making psychiatric drugs to treat these made-up diseases.
I am happy to respond to any queries from youre readership, including
challenges from the pharmaceutical and psychiatric cartels, concerning any
my statements, and to back them up with specifics.
