Get ready for generation Z (Z for zombie). The brains of a generation of children are now being fried by fraudulent brain drugs. Antidepressants are now the number one prescription in America – and our children are the target market.

If you want to save money on health care, especially health care fraud, then ban psychiatrists from getting reimbursement for any services on children and do not provide reimbursement for any psych drugs on any person below age 18. Pay only for cognitive therapy and other stress management assistance, which is equal to or better than drug treatment for even severe depression.

The FDA and the Justice Department turn the other cheek as they allow the rampant off label and inappropriate use of brain medication on our children. The marketing of these medications is based on criminal activity of the drug companies that sell them, something that is well documented and certainly not my imagination (covered in detail in my book, Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA’s Betrayal of America).

Even government programs intentionally expand coverage in this area, under the ruse of expanding health care to children (what a shameful joke).

The whole industry is built on blatant fraud. It has been clearly exposed that these medications are no better than placebo except in the worst-case depression issues (and even then they readily backfire and may cause suicidal thinking to manifest or become worse).

Here are the facts:
Antidepressant use has doubled in the past 10 years and now includes 10% of the population. The fastest growing user group is children. In addition to antidepressants, the widespread off label use of extremely expensive antipsychotic medication grew by 62% in this patient population (a very dangerous drug cocktail). At the same time, the use of psychotherapy to help these patients decreased by 62%.

As a society we are relying on pills to control problems. In other words, we as a society need our heads examined, and not by psychiatric butchers.

Individuals on antidepressants and anti-psychotics become docile and easier to control – until they explode in a mass murder rage. I do understand the economics of the situation, i.e., Big Pharma owns both sides of the political aisle. This is why the Bush administration adamantly pushed this agenda and the Obama administration has picked up right where the Bush people left off.

Or maybe it is something a little more sinister. Brain meds make a population docile and controllable, turning the zest for life to ashes. A free people on antidepressants won’t have very many objections to anything, and won’t be free for very long. There is a reason Hitler had a fascination with the mental health control of his population. In addition to his well-documented and abhorrent use of psychiatrists to carry on human experiments, he was the first to realize that adding fluoride to the water supply could really help settle everyone down. And now we see union thugs beating people up at health care rallies. Maybe it really is time that Mein Kampf becomes required reading for all Americans so that the strategies and brutality of a madman can be clearly understood (after all, it was the last time citizens were beat up at town hall meetings by government-associated thugs). Yes, I know – I’m just another conspiracy theorist.

By the way, antidepressants are now strongly linked to heart diease. So maybe the plot isn’t quite as serious - just one to create more future customers for the Big Pharma sickness industry who will also benefit quite nicely from their antipsychotics turning kids obese and diabetic.

P.S. - Don’t forget about antidepressants causing major bone loss. I wonder who profits from that?
