A word about SSRI's


As our country is still reeling from the shootings in Sandy Hook, the biggest question is "Why did this happen?"  Just yesterday I read in the news reports that they want to put an armed office in every school to prevent this from happening again.  Is more gun control the answer?  In a forum that I hang out, one person said that guns are not needed in the school system or in the home.  Is that really the answer?

Lets take a look at the history of school violence.  The worst school attack hasn't been in the 20 years.  It actually occurred in the late 20's in Bath, MI.  38 kids & 7 adults were killed.

A single bullet wasn't fired, a knife wasn't drawn, just a upset tax payer that his tax dollars was going to the school system.  You didn't know about that attack?  Not many people do, its a dirty little secret that has been buried in the history books.

School attacks started within 1 year of SSRI medication being administered to people.

What are SSRI's?  They are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors.  They are commonly prescribed for depression.   Lets take a look a closer look at what these letters mean.

Selective - highly specific in activity or effect

Serotonin -  Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Biochemically derived from tryptophan, serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system of animals including humans.

reuptake - the reabsorption by a neuron of a neurotransmitter following the transmission of a nerve impulse across a synapse

inhibitor - an agent that slows or interferes with a chemical action

One of the side affects of SSRI's is worsening depression.  They also make it so some may lack any sort of empathy towards others.  Most of the people who have done these attacks on schools were on some sort mind altering drug.  Big pharma & FDA are wroking together to try to get every single American on some sort of psychiatric drug.  I've even read some articles where they want to put Lithium in our water supply.  Fluoride is already being put into our water supply under the guise its for our teeth.  It was given to prisoners in concentration camps to lessen their tendency to want to escape. 

There is a time & place for doctors & medicine.  But the practice of haphazardly prescribing medicines without proper follow up needs to end.  I wonder how many doctors have actually read the inser that comes with drugs they are prescribing?  When I read a vaccine insert, it takes me almost 2 hours to read it from start to finish.  Then I cover it again, high lighting the important stuff.

As I was doing some research for this article, I came across this web page on how Psychiatric Drugs are making America mad.  A very long but good read -

This article is in NO WAY trying to downplay the Sandy Hook shooting.  I cried when I read the news online & as I watched the news on TV.  I hugged my daughter tighter & longer that day & in the days to come. 

Have a great holiday & a great week.  It will be a very busy week around our home.

Until next time,
