Dangerous drugs


In light of the Connecticut murder/suicide tragedy, I would like to bring people’s attention to the fact that the Big-Pharma-supported U.S. news media focus on what happened, not on why it happened.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) had a psychiatrist on camera and the reporter asked, “Can you tell us why this happened?” The psychiatrist said that we do not know and did not even offer a guess. So, here is my guess: the shooter, reportedly suffering from an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), was taking a drug that escalated his loss of control.

The scariest thing is that people can go berserk after taking antibiotics. The Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) states that the antibiotics Floxin, Levaquin, and Cipro can cause nightmares, psychotic reactions, paranoia, mania, aggression and hostility, and hallucinations. They contain fluorine, which is added to an increasing number of prescription drugs to facilitate docking with the drugs’ receptors.

In 2002, at Ft. Bragg, N.C., a number of murder/suicides were linked to the fluorinated anti-malarial drug Lariam. SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors) antidepressants also contain fluorine, one of the most toxic elements on planet Earth. Nowadays, antidepressants are routinely prescribed, not just by psychiatrists, but by general practitioners and even nurses. Veterinarians have gotten in on the act, prescribing them to pets instead of exercise and attention.

Retired neurosurgeon, i.e. free to speak, Russell Blaylock prophetically stated after the Virginia Tech massacre, “With millions of people taking fluorinated drugs, events similar to those at Virginia Tech are bound to occur … What is unusual about the effect of fluorinated drugs is that they trigger planned violence rather than just violent outburst … In their clinical trials, pharmaceutical companies found homicides, homicidal acts and homicidal ideation to be a side-effect of the fluorinated medications.”

The only way to protect people, and especially children, is for everyone to make wise lifestyle choices, including medications. The website has a long list of dangerous drugs. provides information on prescription drugs and clinical trials and a way to report negative effects of medications.

We rank No. 1 in prescription drug use and are only one of two countries that allow prescription drug advertising on television. Coincidentally, we rank No. 50 in life expectancy, down from 24 in 1999.

How low must we go before policymakers recognize that what is good for big pharma is not good for America?
