The Link Between Psychiatric Drugs and Nearly All Recent Mass-Shootings 

A large number of individuals in school and other shootings were either on prescription drugs or coming off them. 

One can make the statement that of course these people were medicated, they were disturbed.  They should have been medicated.

Now experts are wondering if the  cause of these violent tragedies is not the drugs themselves.  Depressed people are not violent but depressed people on drugs are.

This first video is short and to the point.  (3 minutes)  It makes the clear connection between anti-depressants and a young boy’s behavior.

 

 

This video is longer (12 minutes) and much darker.  It brings up the additional point that drug companies are making tremendous profits from these drugs and that is their only goal.

 

 
In the last five decades, more than 20 antipsychotics and 30 antidepressants have been marketed with over $25 billion in sales in the U.S. in 2011 alone.   That’s a lot of drugs!
 
All drugs have side effects and can be dangerous.  Now we have just added one more side effect.  Surely it must be obvious that this approach is deeply flawed.
Without minimizing the serious situations some people are in or dismissing the benefits that some drugs have been provided, there are natural alternative many medications. 
For depression the possible alternatives are:
  • Therapy
  • Exercise  A 2006 study found that just one bout of exercise; a brisk 30 minute walk immediately improved the mood of depressed individuals.  Walking is my first choice for exercise. Being outside in the fresh air, under the sun or moon and stars just can’t be beat. Read more at Walkin Them Blues Away
  • Nutrition Low mood symptoms are directly associated with low levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter. Proper levels of serotonin are created in the brain when there is the proper balance of tryptophan, an amino acid, certain B vitamins, and certain enzymes. It’s creation is also influenced by blood sugars, Omega 3 fatty acids and the proper balance of melatonin – the ‘sleep hormone’.
  • Light therapy  This is one choice for SAD (seasonal effectiveness disorder) but works in many other depressive situations. Read more at 10 Foods (and Fixes) to Improve Your Mood

    What a load of crap! Not only are you referring to corollations and trying to suggest cause and effect, but your numbers are totally unconvincing. Look at the millions of people on anti-depressants and then see how many of them are violent – it will be miniscule. Those boys mentioned above were also on milk, I would predict, so why don’t you make the connection between milk and violence, or teen music and violence, or wearing jeans and violence?

    Thanks, Randy, for this great, well-researched article. I agree completely. I think this has become such a deep-seated problem, it is going to take a lot to turn it around.
    Thanks for continuing to share valuable information.
