Drugging Kids for Profit: The Nail is in the Coffin

I think people are finally getting the message that putting your kids on powerful mind-altering drugs for 'hyperactivity' is perhaps not the best thing to do. Here are 3 recent major set-backs for that extremely profitable quackery a.k.a. fraud called, "Label kids as mentally ill, then rake in the cash":
  • 26 Oct 07 - The Church of Scientology's psychiatric watchdog, CCHR (Citizens Commission on Human Rights) brings out 3 extremely hard-hitting and emotive PSAs on the subject, soon to be playing on TV channels all over the world. Click Play below to watch No. 1 - the very sad story of Candace Downing, and all 3 PSAs can be seen here -

  • 12 Nov 07 - BBC's Panorama programme called "What Next for Craig?" investigates drugs given to children for ADHD and reveals that "new research shows giving children drugs for ADHD works no better than doing nothing in the long-term." The programme also pointed out that children can become suicidal while on these drugs, and that they pose an increased risk of delinquency, substance misuse and even of going to jail.
  • 14 Nov 07 - Baroness Susan Greenfield asked the UK government to conduct an inquiry into the effectives of ADHD drugs and the reasons behind the “remarkable increase” in the number of children diagnosed with the condition over the last two decades.

Was Pekka-Eric Auvinen on psychiatric medication?

We will have to see if Pekka-Eric Auvinen, the latest school shooter, was on prescribed psychiatric medication such as antidepressants*. If so, it will be no surprise because what happened yesterday - this time in Finland - bears all the hallmarks of a drug-induced shooting, like many of the school shootings in recent years.

Watch this Public Service Announcement and you will see what I mean:

The following school shooters have been verified as being under the influence of a psychiatric drug at the time of the shooting:

May 21, 1998: Springfield, Oregon: 15-year-old Kip Kinkel murdered his own parents and then proceeded to his school where he opened fire on students in the cafeteria, killing two and wounding 22. Kinkel had been on Prozac.

April 29 1999: A 14 year old boy shot two children, killing one, at W.R. Myers High School in Taber Alberta. He was a student of the school; he was seeing a psychiatrist who prescribed him Dexadrine just prior to the shooting.

April 16, 1999: Notus, Idaho: 15-year-old Shawn Cooper fired two shotgun rounds at his school narrowly missing students; he was taking a mix of antidepressants.

April 20, 1999: Columbine, Colorado: 18-year-old Eric Harris was on the antidepressant Luvox when he and his partner Dylan Klebold killed twelve classmates and a teacher before taking his own life in the bloodiest school massacre in history. The coroner confirmed that the antidepressant was in his system through toxicology reports, while Dylan Klebold’s autopsy was never made public.

May 20, 1999: Conyers, Georgia: 15-year-old T.J. Solomon was being treated with a mix of antidepressants when he opened fire on, and wounded, six of his classmates.

March 7, 2000: Williamsport, Pennsylvania: 14-year-old Elizabeth Bush was on the antidepressant Prozac when she blasted away at fellow students in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, wounding one.

March 22, 2001: El Cajon, California: 18-year-old Jason Hoffman was on two antidepressants, Effexor and Celexa, when he opened fire at his California high school wounding five. Hoffman had also undergone an “anger management” program.

April 10, 2001: Wahluke, Washington: 16-year-old Cory Baadsgaard took a rifle into his high school and held twenty-three classmates and a teacher hostage while on a high dose of the antidepressant Effexor.

March 21, 2005: Red Lake Indian Reservation, Minnesota: 16-year-old Native American, Jeff Weise, reportedly under the influence of the antidepressant Prozac, went on a shooting rampage at home and at his school, killing nine people and wounding five before committing suicide.

How Toxic Are You? Channel 4


We're made of chemicals, we rely on them, they're the basis of life. But the wrong types, in the wrong concentrations can cause serious damage. There are around 30,000 chemicals licensed for use in the UK today. Most make our lives easier, some make our lives safer, but for others, the jury is out.

Every year we splash out £6.4 billion on beauty products, but do we ever stop to think about what's in them or what they could be doing to us? The beauty industry spends £600 million a year marketing its products as pure, simple, organic and natural, but what's the truth behind the hype? Presenter Sarah Beeny wants to find out. First she meets Emma and Charlotte, two beauty-obsessed sisters. Between them they spend almost £1,000 a month on their beauty regime, but they have no idea how many chemicals are in their favourite products or whether these could be damaging their health.

Sarah has the girls tested, and with the help of two experts, is able to reveal the chemicals being stored in their bodies and then shows them how to detox by removing chemicals from their lives. Then Sarah meets two young mums to see whether the chemicals in the products they use are being passed on to their babies, before taking to the streets to find out whether parents really know what's in the special baby products they are buying.

A Unique Solution
But do not despair, because there is a way to flush chemical residues out of your body, thanks to the discoveries of researcher and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. He developed a method for reducing body levels of toxic chemicals - a method which has been widely implemented, studied and demonstrated to be safe and effective. It is the sauna detoxification programme, used with great success by the world's largest network of drug rehabs - Narconon. It is also used by the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project, bringing relief to those affected by 9/11, particularly firemen.

The attack on the WTC towers, and their subsequent collapse, brought unprecedented toxic exposures, beginning with a dust storm of pulverized concrete, steel, asbestos, carpeting, office equipment and other matter.

The Sauna Detoxification Programme
It is a precise regimen that includes exercise, sauna bathing, and vitamin, mineral and oil supplements. More than 20 years of clinical experience have established its value in treating chemical exposures.

A continuously evolving body of research projects has examined its application in the aftermath of exposure incidents. Scientists in the U.S., Europe and Russia have collaborated on this work.

Their findings have been published by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among many others.
