Environmental impact of these drugs, unable to be removed at your sewage treatment plant, does much to alter the skeletons of fish and many show increased numbers of bone tumours.
The connection grows when you think of all the other flouride based pharmaceuticals.
Might this have played a part in the death of Anna Nicole Smith's young son?
And what question are you asking?
It is becoming more and more apparent that psychiatric drugs drive people to not only perform violent acts on others, but also to take their own lives as well. A recent article written by Steve Mitchell, United Press International’s Senior Medical Correspondent, states that "Two studies released Monday may bring further scrutiny upon the beleaguered selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor [SSRI] class of anti-depressants. One study suggests the drugs may increase the risk of severe violence, and the other indicates the drugs can have damaging effects on the environment." The report goes on by explaining that a team of researchers from Cardiff University’s North Wales Department of Psychological Medicine has been conducting studies into the link between SSRIs and violent behavior. GlaxoSmithKline's Paxil was the focus of the study. The team leader, David Healy, is quoted in the article as saying, "We've got good evidence that the drugs can make people violent and you'd have to reason from that that there may be more episodes of violence."
It is of importance to note that results of the studies also showed that the rate of violence was higher in healthy volunteers who were given the drug Paxil. This startling result suggests that SSRIs create violent criminals out of healthy individuals. "You have to wonder what they could be doing if they're really being handed out to people who just don't really need them," he said.
Healy points out the responsibility that the pharmaceutical companies need to start taking. "What the companies have done for years and years is put up this message that there is no risk to these drugs, so the onus is more on the companies to let people know that there is this risk," he said.
Results of what psychiatric drugs are doing to the youth of our country are manifest in recent years. In the past seven years, over half of those involved in school shootings were on prescribed psychiatric medications. For example, 18-year-old Eric Harris, the ring leader in the April 20,1999 Columbine school shooting that left 12 classmates and a teacher dead, was taking the prescribed SSRI Luvox. On March 22, 2001, in El Cajon, California, 18-year-old Jason Hoffman was on two antidepressants, Effexor and Celexa, when he opened fire at his high school, wounding five. In March 2005, 16-year-old Jeff Weise from Minnesota shot dead his grandfather and his grandfather's girlfriend, then went to his school on the Red Lake Indian Reservation where he shot dead nine fellow students and a teacher before killing himself. He was taking Prozac.
