Pharmaceutical Giants are big on public relations campaigns. Millions of dollars are being spent to convince parents that childhood depression, bipolar, ADD and ADHD are dangerous mental illnesses that only their drugs can “fix.”
A child who exhibits any emotion (grief, anger, even cheerfulness) may be suspected of childhood depression or bipolar. Nowadays a diagnosis of mental illness is more common than a diagnosis of measles forty or fifty years ago.
These mental illnesses are concocted by Big Pharmaceutical companies and their minions, the psychiatrists. The men and women who work in these industries are guilty of the worst kind of child abuse. Their living is based on the misery of others. Their “product” is a child who has lost his or her future hope, happiness and the possibility of a productive and creative life. Their “treatment” may even claim the life of that child.
Children who are treated early with these damaging pharmaceuticals grow up with side effects that may be falsely attributed to their “disease.” Parents, convinced their children will suffer if taken off the drugs, help create a life-long dependency.
In a society where even a family meal may be a rare thing, parents may sadly buy into the false advertising that drugs will “fix” their child’s mood swings or upset. They may decide that Jenny isn’t crying because she lost her rabbit. No, she probably has childhood depression.
And why wait for excessive energy or mood swings to go away when there is a magic pill to help? Childhood depression is a dangerous condition (they say), and only their “treatment” can cure it.
What does this treatment do to the brain of a developing child?
It has been proven that antipsychotic drugs taken over a long period of time cause brain shrinkage. Researchers in a study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry stated:
“Given the sharp rise in antipsychotic utilization, especially among geriatric and pediatric populations, examining the possibility of antipsychotic brain tissue loss has important implications for assessing the risk benefit ratio in a large number of psychiatric patients.”
Children have been killed by these pharmaceutical drugs. Two children, barely out of toddlerhood died from psychiatric drugs for their “bipolar” disorders. Rebecca Riley of Massachusetts (four years old) and Destiny Hager of Kansas (three years old) were killed in 2006 from dosing of psychiatric drugs Geodon and Seroquel.
The outrage against psychiatrists and their deadly drugs is awakening parents everywhere. A father or mother who has tragically lost a child (or had a child severely damaged) by one of these dangerous drugs at least has recourse to sue the psychiatrist or pharmaceutical company responsible.
But that does not bring back their child, or even prevent these legal child abusers from continuing their criminal practices. Word of mouth is a powerful thing. When you are aware of the danger, and spread the news to those you love, the easy profits of psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies will start to dry up.
