journal articles confirmation, the overflow.  Expert advice is yet another example of promoting profits by scientists for hire, these key opinion leaders, the KOLs get it consistent wrong by promoting industry’s talking points.  You’d be surprised at how many accepted as fact beliefs about health and medications have been cooked-up to maximize profits.  There is a mountain of journal articles exposing the flaws, and below are the best of the documentaries and lectures exposing the corruption.  As Harvard Prof. Marcia Angell says, “the 800 pound gorilla can do anything it wants.”

Psychiatry Assoc. to turn doctors into willing pill pushers.  Weak on science; missed that all these drugs are tranquilizers, given other labels for sales, & they are worse long-term than nothing at all.  They pass FDA approval because they increase sleep, which is 15% of its “benefits” under Hamilton Rating Scale.  This is a blue print on how pharma markets all classes of drugs,  Excellent

Note:  The large number of professors and doctors who have come forward to criticize pharma’s tobacco ethics which generates tobacco science to market drugs most of which aren’t worth their side effect.  Many of these drugs are causal for other chronic conditions such as dementia, cardiovascular disease, colitis…  A chorus of academic critics has convincing evidence which can be found in peer review journal articles, a sample of which is at /rep and some more /rjk--list of their books, and why doctors give Junk treatments.

Note:  Lowering cholesterol is a surrogate accepted by the FDA for drug approval rather than the endpoint of less ischemic event and deaths; but the association has never been demonstrated in sound scientific studies.  Pharma has made billions treating their cholesterol myth with statins (most of which are now off patent).  Now a new patented family of drugs is on the market—the switch is on.  The cause is atherosclerosis which is strongly associated with the high sugar Western diet and cigarettes.  The fix is to reverse insulin resistance through fasting and healthy diet which cleanses the liver-- exercise and the supplements I listed Help.

The Truth about Depression 97 min, 30,000, views, BBC slick pro-drug (promotes the sales pitch given by Pharma) documentary which argues that depression is real, affects behavior, has causes in the brain, and needs antidepressant to fix the problem,  Sucks

Instead of treating a people with a drug that makes them feel better, pharma uses fat-soluble drugs that accumulate and remain in the body, with horrible withdrawal (very addicting), that cloud cognitive processes creating confusion and making the patient dependent on his doctor:  they are tranquilizers labeled as a panacea  A number of the illicit recreational drugs perform much better than pharma’s downers:  Amphetamines for depression (as they were legally prescribed in the 50s), marijuana and opiates for anxiety, and LSD in a clinical situation with talk therapy for major neurosis (as done in the 60s). The issue of compliance with treatment would vanish if downers helped the psychiatric patients.  For children we need to make the classes interesting and pleasant rather than drug the kids.  Behaviorist therapy (distinguished form CBT) has been shown to work best for nearly all psychiatric problems.  No more than 2%, as in the 1940s should be psychotropic drugs.  Psychiatric problems with a genetic-environmental basis have been strongly selected against in the gene pool.  With a just-ideal society and a government acting as a good parent (Plato’s analogy), psychiatric drugs would be for the 2% because the incidence of mental illness would be around 2%, and recreational drugs would have at most occasional use.
