Don’t trust your doctor has been my tag line for may years now. Just because they have the letters, ‘MD’ after their name, doesn’t make them a god; it simply makes them people with degrees. Don’t confuse smart with professionalism, trust worthy or ethical.
There are No Tests in Existence That Can Prove Mental “Disorders” are Medical Conditions. Psychiatric Diagnosis is Based Solely on Opinion.
There is no medical “mental illness test.” The psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry spends billions of dollars a year in order to convince the public, legislators and the press that psychiatric disorders such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, etc., are medical diseases on par with verifiable medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. But unlike medical disease, there are no scientific tests to verify the medical existence of any psychiatric disorder. Despite decades of trying to prove mental disorders are biological brain conditions, due to chemical imbalances or genetic factors, psychiatry has failed to prove even one mental disorder is due to a faulty or “chemically imbalanced” brain. There are virtually no psychiatric disorders that can be verified medically as a physical abnormality/disease.
In fact the “brain scans” that have been pawned off as evidence that schizophrenia or depression are brain diseases, have been disproven as valid research. Most have not been done on drug naive patients, meaning someone who has not been on psychiatric drugs such as antipsychotic drugs, documented to cause brain atrophy (shrinkage). Other brain scans have shown the brains of smaller children to show smaller brains in comparison to larger/older children and then claimed children with ADHD have smaller brains. None have been conclusively proven to verify mental disorders as abnormalities of the brain.
If there were such verifiable brain scans, or in fact any medical/scientific test that could show a physical/medical abnormality for any psychiatric disorder, the public would be getting such tests prior to being administered psychiatric drugs.
This is fact: There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition. Whereas real diseases are discovered in labs, psychiatric disorders are invented by committee and voted into existence.
The article below can be found HERE. I felt it very necessary to republish this.
Newspaper articles often trumpet the “wonders” of modern day psycho-pharmaceutical research for the treatment of childhood learning and emotional “problems” and “disabilities.”
They sound reasonable. They sound convincing—science again conquers our material universe for the benefit of Mankind. Who could possibly argue with making a normal life possible for those in trouble?
Daniel’s parents would. And so would Cory’s. They would argue vehemently and passionately. And with more than 20 million school children worldwide said to have a mental disorder that requires them to be chemically restrained by powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs, these parents are far from alone.
Who are Daniel and Cory and why do their parents disagree? They are children who are not only unable to lead normal lives because of so-called “miracle” drugs; they are tragically no longer with us at all, because of those drugs.
I invite you to analyze the above illustration more closely from the point of view of children, because the reality and the labels may not reflect the same thing when it comes to psychiatry’s “drugs of the moment.”
Reflect on several of the words and how they are used. Take “normal,” for example. You probably have your own idea of what a normal sort of life is. Does it involve the consumption of addictive, mind-altering and deadly psychiatric drugs? Does it involve a total reliance on such drugs to remain normal?
What about the word “medications?” Does it ease your mind by conjuring up images of some benign cough syrup prescribed by a kindly family doctor? Nothing could be further from the truth. A psychiatric medication is a very powerful addictive drug.
Then there is the term “scientific,” often used by psychiatry to add legitimacy to its pronouncements. According to the World Book Dictionary, the word implies “systematic; accurate; exact.” Those characteristics have nothing to do with psychiatry or, for that matter, its cousin, psychology.
Examples of other words which suffer at their hands are “values,” “right,” “wrong,” “safe,” even “education.”
This is the subtle propaganda of the psychiatrist and psychologist at work—the redefinition of words. Somehow in their hands, things just seem to get all twisted about and eventually fall apart.
The trouble is that their worldwide propaganda on the subject of children and education has thoroughly duped well-meaning parents, teachers and politicians alike, that “normal”—there’s that word again—childhood behavior is no longer normal; that it is a mental illness. And further, that only by continuous, heavy drugging from a very early age, can the “afflicted” child possibly make it through life’s worst.
Who would have thought years ago that we could have come to this? Nevertheless we are here, and the harsh reality is that as a result, precious young lives all over the world are at serious risk, permanently damaged, even lost to us.
Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not “experimental animals.” They are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. A chance denied them by psychiatry’s labels and chemical straitjackets.
We are making this report, Child Drugging—Psychiatry Destroying Lives, available to expose the lies and propaganda at work, to provide a perspective and information not made readily available to parents and others concerned, and most importantly to help bring sanity and control back to the care and nurturing of our children.
Children are our future.
There is nothing less at stake here than our very future itself.

According to a study published in the Public Health Reports, driving under the influence of prescription drugs is becoming a large problem in society, causing more fatal driving accidents than ever before.
Today, driving fatalities due to driving under the influence of prescription drugs, including Xanax, Cymbalta, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Sarafem and Abilify, are surpassing those caused by drunk drivers.
“While we’ve seen a decrease over the years in motor vehicle fatalities involving people under the influence [of alcohol], the nature of those crashes is changing,” said study author Fernando Wilson, Ph.D., associate professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
How psychotic medicine logically increases risky driving behaviors
The study shows an alarming increase in motor vehicle accidents due to prescription drugs. The mind altering medications do not allow the person’s mind to cope naturally with life’s stressors and periods of depression. The prescription drugs quickly change the chemical levels in the brain (with the intent of a quick fix for depression or anxiety), but confuses the normal functions of the mind. The mind naturally tries to adapt to the quick changes and can become stressed in new ways, which confuses the natural state of the person’s mind, predisposing them to act out of character. In a vehicle, this change could correlate to risky driving behaviors. According to some drug labels, suicidal behavior as a side effect could translate to violent driving patterns in a vehicle.
The use of multiple drugs increases the risk dramatically
The study investigated the characteristics of U.S. drivers involved in fatal crashes between 1993 and 2010. While drug use across the board increased significantly during that time, the percentage of impaired drivers with three or more drugs in their systems nearly doubled during that time, from 11.5% to 21.5%.
Drug use by older adults
A large number of fatal crashes came from prescription drug users (39%) who were 50 years or older. This trend correlates with the increasing reliance on prescription drugs by Americans.
According to the study, 90% of individuals 65 and older have prescription drug expenses.
The authors of the study hope that medical professionals begin counseling patients about the driving impairments posed by prescription drugs.
By 2010, prescription monitoring program were in place in 42 states. These programs, designed to curb illicit drug use and prevent overdoses, also focused on the overuse and abuse of prescription drugs.
