big pharma | drug wars
| The language of obsfucation is always fascinating | BigPharma and Mental Illness Inc. sometimes use this term when referring to known negative effects | The researchers in the industry know this stuff, they just seem so averse to sharing it | I wonder why?:Some observations
1- The May 2005 issue of Mother Jones
describes what happens when the Drug Lords manage the mental health system | Aliah Gleason was a direct victim of the Texas juvenile
mental illness promoters | They took her from her family, pumped her full of a polypharma regimen, then kept her from her family |
Seems that she was lucky | She survived | Some sources indicate that as many as 17,000 kids in Texas are subjected to forced psychiatric drugging |
Rhetorical question time: Why is it that when the Soviets subjected their citizens to forced drugging it was recognized as torture
but here in the USA it's just treatment as usual?
2- FDA Warns Antipsychotic Drugs Dangerous to Elderly
Also in 2005 The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory to alert health care providers,
patients, and patient caregivers to new safety information concerning an unapproved (i.e., “off-label”) use of certain drugs called “atypical antipsychotic drugs.” These drugs are approved for the treatment of schizophrenia and mania, but clinical studies of these drugs to treat behavioral disorders in elderly patients with dementia have shown a higher death rate associated with their use compared to patients receiving a placebo (sugar pill).
