    Default Psych Drugs: The Real Weapons of Mass Destruction

    Isn't it ironic that an army launched on a war to neutralize "WMD" gets wiped out by a very real WMD made available in vast quantity by the same petro-chemico-pharmaceutical consortiums that manufacture the so-called "real" WMD as an excuse to start wars....

    25 disturbing facts about psych drugs, soldiers and suicides


    Thursday, March 14, 2013
    by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
    Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)

    (NaturalNews) We are living in an age of upside-downs, where right is wrong, fiction is truth and war is peace. Those who fight the wars are subjected to their own house of mirrors via pharmaceutical "treatments." Instead of providing U.S. soldiers and veterans with actual health care, the government throws pills at them and calls it "therapy."

    Stimulants, antidepressants, anti-psychotics, sedatives and pain meds are the new "fuel" for America's front-line forces. While the idea of sending medicated soldiers into battle was unthinkable just three decades ago, today it's the status quo. And the cost in human lives has never been more tragic.

    Here are 25 disturbing facts about psych drugs, soldiers and suicides. They are disturbing because everybody seems to be pretending there is no link between psychiatric drugs and soldier suicides. So soldiers and veterans keep dying while the Pentagon (and the VA) keep pretending they don't know why. (Sources are listed at the bottom of this article.)

    1) 33% of the U.S. Army is on prescription medications, and nearly a quarter of those are on psychotropic drugs

    2) In 2010, the Pentagon spent $280 million on psychiatric drugs. That number has since risen.

    3) There are now over 8,000 suicides each year by U.S. soldiers and veterans; that's over 22 a day

    4) 33% of those suicides are attributed to medication side effects

    5) That means medications are killing more U.S. soldiers and veterans than Al-Qaeda

    6) 500% more soldiers abuse prescription drugs than illegal street drugs

    7) Under the Obama administration, the number of veterans waiting for VA care has risen from 11,000 in 2009 to 245,000 today

    8) More active duty soldiers die from suicide than from combat: 349 dead last year

    9) The number of prescriptions for Ritalin and Adderall written for active-duty soldiers has increased 1,000% in the last five years

    10) For every active-duty service member who dies in battle, 25 veterans die by suicide

    11) Only 1 percent of Americans have served in the Middle East, but veterans of combat there make up 20% of all suicides in the United States

    12) The suicide rate of active-duty soldiers in the Civil War was only 9 - 15 per 100,000 soldiers. The suicide rate of active-duty U.S. soldiers in the Middle East is 23 per 100,000. And casualty rates were far higher in the Civil War, meaning the Civil War was more psychologically traumatic.

    13) In the Korean War, the suicide rate among active-duty military soldiers was only 11 per 100,000

    14) To date, the Pentagon has spent more than a billion dollars on psychiatric drugs, making it one of the largest customers of Big Pharma

    15) In 2010, over 213,000 active-duty military personnel were taking medications considered "high risk" by the Pentagon

    16) In the years since the Iraq War began, twice as many soldiers of the Texas Army National Guard have died of suicide than in combat

    17) Defense Secretary Leon Panetta calls military suicides an "epidemic"

    18) Of all the branches of the military, the Army has the highest number of suicides each year, almost 400% more than the Marines

    19) Most active-duty soldiers who take psychiatric medications consume a combination of three to five prescriptions

    20) The use of prescription medications by active-duty soldiers is largely unregulated. Soldiers are given a bottle of meds and sent into combat. If they run out of meds, they are given a refill, no questions asked.

    21) The mainstream media says the answer to lowing suicides of veterans is to take away their guns so that they cannot shoot themselves. This is the logical equivalent to trying to fix your car's engine by removing the "check engine" light.

    22) The Pentagon is initiating new research (in 2013) to try to figure out why psychiatric medications cause soldiers to commit suicide. The research involves tracking brain activity by attaching electrodes to the skull.

    23) One-third of military suicides are committed by soldiers who have never seen combat

    24) In the last year, the military wrote over 54,000 prescriptions for Seroquel to soldiers, and all those prescriptions were "off label," meaning the intended use has never been approved by the FDA as safe or effective.

    25) Dr. Bart Billings, a retired Army Colonel and former military psychologist, refers to psychiatric drugs as a "chemical lobotomy" for soldiers.

    Thank you for posting this list Amzer Zo. It really puts things in perspective. I just read the list to my husband, along with a lot of head shaking and eye rolling. Quite stunning indeed. Like they say, we're not in Kansas anymore Dorothy. I don't know what happened to the world I thought I grew up in but it has certainly disappeared some long time ago.

    Unfortunately, IMO, that's the appparent choice when all other alternatives have been removed from the market:

    ... it all comes down to the INTENT behind the creation:


    Quote Steve: Okay, okay. One of the interesting things I look at here is you’ve got to understand how homeopathy works and osteopathic frequencies work. And, you know equal force against equal forces become null and void. Interesting. So, I look at this, Aboriginal culture says, ‘everything is alive.’ So, I had a woman that comes into me from Chile. Doesn’t speak good English. Her daughter said, “my mum can’t sleep, she’s on two lots of sleeping tablets and can’t sleep.” I said, ‘well that makes sense, she’s got two separate entities in there, they both need to keep her awake before she feeds them.’ Everything’s alive.

    So what happens is for these drugs to be created they’ve got to have an intent behind their creation. The first is the law of intent and the law of agreement. So what is the intent in the creation of that drug and what’s its intent? It now becomes a life‐form that needs to survive like anything else. Therefore, an anti‐depressant means it has to keep you depressed so you’ll feed it. And when you feed it, it will make you no longer depressed. It's got it’s food source, thank you very much. Another life‐form taking over the vehicle. Stunned.

    The American population should say to their kids. Don't join our military. The American government wants to kill you. If you don't die during a supposedly valid intervention you will die by what the government will give you as meds or maybe even use you as a lab mice for test. It is a lose, lose case.

    Good thread Amzer Zo!

    It's not exactly the same, but when my grand dad worked as a co pilot for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, he was forced to take a form of drug that we now know as 'speed' to cope with the changing time zones.
    After a few years he just collapsed, resulting in a psychiatric admission where they fried his brain with 30 sessions of electroshock therapy (which was way more powerful as they do now).
    He never recovered fully and became a madman in the ways of the lord and a menace to his family.

    Of course the story doesn't end with him, because his children got to experience his madness for the full time when they lived in his house, scarring their psyche.
    And his children gave some of that to their children, so this problem leaves scars not only with the people that use the drugs, but also to their off spring.

    I understand you're talking of soldiers. I think they have psychological tests that they aren't mentally unwell before being accepted. So any illness has presumably started due to life-stressors or experiences at war. My mother was well until age 23 and her illness (schizo-affective disorder) came on after she had her first child. She had hallucinations, talked with "pressured speech," etc. She NEVER got even 1% better, so the drugs never "worked" but they did let her sleep at night, which gave her some peace. I feel terrible about her life, but I'm glad I stayed in contact and did some things for her (but she rejected me so I couldn't help her much). Its a sad situation for any family.

    It seems that this point has been missed from the OP:

    Quote Now that schools have become the biggest pill-pushers of them all thanks to the new mental disorder "Bible," what do you think will happen once the "Baby-boomer" generations go extinct with old age?
    School children are the biggest market for that industry... WORLDWIDE!

    With the new, voted in, "mental disorders' included in the psychiatrists' "renovated bible"... the DSM-5, no one will escape the pill-pushing. Hence, the REAL WMD.

    Check this thread: Psychiatry goes insane. regarding some of the content of that new DSM-5 "bible."

    As for the removed alternatives, they go from simple nutrition: The gut of most disease... NOT what you think!

    To therapies removing trauma from the mind: MATRIX REVEALED -- Analysis & Solutions

    To the esoteric: Dreamtime Healing - Using Holographic Kinetics

    Among the other varieties of WMDs all generations are submitted to: vaccines and poisoned foods via GMOs and/or toxic additives; but those are longer term.

    It seems like soldiers from many nations were the guinea pigs to determine which drugs were the fastest and most effective in producing the "expected" results.

    To add to that mix, there is another WMD which seems to work better in the presence of drugs in a body: remote, AI mind control... see this thread for an in depth analysis of that other weapon ready to be unleashed on the drugged masses: Must Read: The Matrix Deciphered by Dr Robert Duncan

    Of course, one would not expect goverments to use the varieties of remote, AI mind control on their soldiers either... right?

    Apologies was not able to upload this to Avalon but I recommend the viewing of:

    'The Marketing of Madness' on YouTube
    also
    'Dead Wrong - How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child'
    and
    'Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging'

    A caviat from someone studying mental health: all being said.. the right drugs in the right circumstance overseen with responsible clinicians can and do play a part in stabilisation and recovery for many with issues of mental and emotional well being.

    The recovery model is a person centred approach which aligns with the person being the expert about themselves and their lived experiencing.. therefore the ultimate responsibility and knowing whats best for 'me' is a learning curve for anyone managing any 'illness'.


    After all said and done, a matter of personal journeys with mental health and finding the right services and clinicians for the situation..

    The Drugging of Our Children

    Health 53 Comments



    In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment.

    Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia.

    And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate.

    Just over a year ago, I was fired from a position at a corporate run social service business that was contracted by the state to manage folks with psychiatric issues that lived out in the local communities. I was specifically hired to deal with dual diagnosis folks (history of illegal drug abuse and psychiatric issues).

    Those hired for this position typically have little more education than a high school diploma mostly because it pays only$11.30/hr. Anyway, I hold a Masters in Medicine because I was supposed to be a Physician Assistant (for those who don't know me here). I had been misdiagnosed for over 20 years before discovering I had Lyme. At any rate, by the time I recovered, I no longer could or wanted to practice medicine. I bring this up because when I looked over my clients med lists, I knew exactly what I was looking at (as opposed to the rest of the crews who held this position). I had two years of pharacology and did 1.5 years of medical rotations as part of my education.

    My clients "loved me" and I was "making major headway with clients that hadn't improved in years" according to my supervisor. Note: I was hired specifically to eventually develop an addiction recovery program that I have been working on for the past five years, this was why I took the job, hoping to eventually make a major difference in these folks lives.

    Anyway, I went from being a rock star to being fired...three days after I inquired with the head nurse as to how to go about getting my clients meds lowered. I was fired on a bulls#%* technicality. These folks were being MAJORLY overmedicated to the point that they were ending up in the psych ward 3 times a month or more due to drug interactions. They are keeping them in a constant state of being unwell and off-kilter all in the name of making money.

    My job description was to help these people improve their quality of life...that was all I was trying to do and I did it in a low-key manner not wanting to step on any toes. I presented it to the nurse in this manner but even at that, I was too much of a threat to have around.

    I still lose sleep over this and wish there was something I could do to make it stop...the monster is simply too big to battle. It is purely sickening how many people profit from this broken system.

    Your story is both revealing and 'sickening' ... I'm currently a student in the mental health field and like you via my own tool kit of lived experiences and alternative training in modalities of well being (namely art therapy) am bringing insights and enthusiasm re minimal drug interventions into peoples journeys with 'illness'. The bourgeoning Recovery Model in mental health is a wonderful thing, but change is slow and meanwhile important practitioners such as yourself continue to be actively undermined and vilified by those with nefarious vested interests.

    I admire your courageous spirit and hope that you can find another in-road to applying your approach.. it would be a travesty to people in great need out there if you continue to be road blocked..

    ALL POWER TO YOU

    As someone who suffers from insomnia, I have had to rely on small amounts of medicine at bedtime. A holistically oriented M.D. as well as a naturopath advised me to take natural supplements like GABA, 5HTP, melatonin and the tiniest little piece of clonazepam. This combination actually works and I am told, is not that harmful. My doctor is one of those rare M.D.s who does not like to prescribe drugs unless absolutely necessary and he feels that as long as one of the "pam" drugs is kept at a minimum, then it is safer than not sleeping. The naturopath agrees with this conclusion.

    A couple of years ago, I ran out of the prescription and my doctor was on vacation. I went to a walk-in clinic where I was attended by a very young doctor. She refused to prescribe the pam because she said it's very bad for you. She informed me that the answer to sleep, and most afflictions which are not related to any disease, as in my case, is one of the many different kinds of anti-depressants! So she prescribed some "tradozone" for me, which I refused. She became rather miffed and shoved the prescription in my hands and ordered me to take one every night and my insomnia would go away. I did not fill out the prescription! I find it quite impossible to believe that an anti-depressant every night is less harmful than a sliver of clonazepam.

    Because she was so young, I conclude that medical school is teaching their future doctors that anti-depressants are the panacea we've been looking for and they probably want the whole planet to be on one kind or another.

    I know some people whose young children are on psychiatric drugs and unless they take such medications, they will not be allowed to attend school because they are too belligerent. One such person took her belligerent child to a naturopath who immediately knew the child had worms. A remedy for worms was given to the child who became perfectly calm after two weeks.

    Unfortunately, my case is far more complex than a simple homeopathic remedy because I've tried them all and they haven't worked. But I do look forward to the day when I will be able to remove the "pam" completely from my bedtime routine.
