Media hides psychiatric drug connection to Navy Yard shooter
Seaman August 30, 2013 4:29 PM By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Drugs that treat psychiatric illnesses may not increase a person’s risk of dying over three to four months of treatment, according to a new study. Researchers found people with mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are more likely to die at any given time than people without those conditions, but taking drugs to treat the disorders doesn’t appear to increase that risk. “If anything they seem to reduce the risk – except for a couple of old drugs,” Dr. Arif Khan, the study’s lead author from the Northwest Clinical Research Center in Bellevue, Washington, told Reuters Health. For many years, researchers and doctors have known the lives of people with serious mental illnesses are about 25 years shorter than the rest of the population, on average. Their earlier deaths are caused by a combination of suicides, substance abuse and natural causes, such as heart attacks.

Psychiatric drugs may not increase death risk: study
Studies — included in my books and revealing changes to the brain from antidepressants , from the so-called antipsychotic drugs (the neuroleptics), from stimulants and from benzodiazepines and prescription sleep medications — are piling up, documenting patient risks. In my professional experience, psychiatric drug-induced chronic brain impairment is now a much greater threat to society than the emotional problems that the drugs are supposed to treat. With so much objective misery oppressing people in poor countries, everything from war to famine, it is bizarre and misleading to talk about 350 million worldwide with depression. Most of all, the poor countries need increased liberty, opportunity, and economic growth. As Ethan Watters documents in his book Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche, the last thing these countries need is to import our biological psychiatric diagnoses and drugs into their societies. When people are not overwhelmed by oppressive life circumstances, which must be rectified, in my opinion the best forms of help for depressed people are supportive and encouraging human relationships. When professional help is needed or desired, depression is best approached through psychotherapy, counseling and other human services.

Across the medical industry, treatment is the code word for psychiatric drugging. It has been reported that Alexis suffered from PTSD, blackouts and anger issues, all of which have been known to be treated with SSRI drugs. These are the same types of drugs that were found to have been used by the Aurora theater shooter, James Holmes. Infowars noted that in that case the media and government attempted to hide the drug connection and that it took nearly nine months for the public to find out which drugs were found in his apartment. It turns out that Holmes, just like Columbine killer Eric Harris, was taking Zoloft, which is another SSRI drug linked to violent outbursts in those who take it. The website SSRI Stories notes that there have been literally hundreds of stories of mass shootings, murders and other violent incidents that were committed by individuals who have used SSRI drugs including Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac. The manufacturers of these types of drugs spend approximately $2.4 billion on direct-to-consumer advertising on television every year. As a result of such a huge expenditure of advertising dollars, Infowars postulates that networks are reluctant to do any type of serious investigative reporting on the dangers of prescription drugs for fear of losing tens of millions of dollars in advertising revenue each year.
