Violence and Drugs

We live in a more violent society - perhaps. Yet we have yet to fully realise that Big Pharma drugs are implicated in many of the worst violent events. Nearly all school shootings in the USA have been done by children who have been taking modern antidepressant drugs.

They think themselves clever. The call themselves scientists. They proclaim that conventional medicine is 'evidence based medicine'. But it can be seen by what they do, regularly, they have absolutely no idea what damage their drugs are going to cause - until it is too late for many patients.

The article referred to above states that in a Public Library of Science investigation the top 10 drugs implicated are 8 to 18 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs, and that most of these are anti-depressants.

Of the remaining nine, one is the amphetamine group, one is for smoking cessation, one is an ADHD drug, one is a benzodiazepine, and five are SSRI or SNRI antidepressants".
