    SCHIZOPHRENIA & ANTIPSYCHOTICS

    Is the cure for schizophrenia worse than the disease asked the father of American psychopharmacology

    In an interview that Robert Whitaker did in Salon, he noted that,

    In the late 1970s, Jonathan Cole — the father of American psychopharmacology — wrote a paper called “Is the Cure Worse Than the Disease?” that signaled that antipsychotics weren’t the lifesaving drugs that people had hoped.

    In it, he reviewed all of the long-term harm the drugs could cause and observed that studies had shown that at least 50 percent of all schizophrenia patients could fare well without the drugs.

    He wrote, “Every schizophrenic outpatient maintained on antipsychotic medication should have the benefit of an adequate trial without drugs.”

    This would save many from the dangers of tardive dyskinesia — involuntary body movements — as well as the financial and social burdens of prolonged drug therapy.

    The title of the paper poignantly sums up the awful long-term paradox.

    Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, who used large doses of niacin to treat schizophrenia, also wrote about this many years ago, noting that schizophrenics do better in countries where they don’t use drugs than in countries where they do use drugs.

    SCHIZOPHRENIA & ANTIPSYCHOTICS

    Only 5% of schizophrenics taking drugs recover, but 40% NOT taking drugs recover, Robert Whitaker

    A 2007 outcome study found that the recovery rates for schizophrenics taking drugs (antipsychotics) was only 5%, whereas 40% of schizophrenics NOT taking drugs recovered noted author and journalist Robert Whitaker in an interview that he did with Salon.

    However, Whitaker found that the National Institutes of Mental Health NEVER issued a press release about this study.

    The National Alliance on Mental Illness NEVER issued a press release about this study.

    The American Psychiatric Association NEVER mentioned this study in any books or publications.

    Was this due to drug company influence?

    Why would I ever believe anything that any these organizations say about treating any mental illness including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia or any other condition?

    I don’t.

    I see them as nothing more than partners with the drug companies to help the drug companies sell more drugs.

    ANTIDEPRESSANTS

    Psychiatry turned to drugs to treat depression to eliminate the competition, Robert Whitaker

    “[T]here is a historical story as to why our country is deluded, our society is deluded, and believes in this chemical imbalance story [of depression]” according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    Whitaker noted that in the 1970’s, psychiatry felt like it was under siege because there were non-MD’s — social workers, counselors, psychologists — who were all competing for the same patients.

    He also notes that anti-anxiety drugs were seen as addictive and harmful.

    So, starting in 1980, they put out the DSM3 — [ Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders ] — “which put psychiatry and psychiatric disorders into a medical model” and they touted using drugs for these conditions because social workers, counselors, psychologists [ non-MD’s ] could not prescribe drugs, so this would eliminate their competition.

    ANTIDEPRESSANTS

    Drug companies began influencing psychiatry’s beliefs in 1980 notes Robert Whitaker

    The drug industry became influential in psychiatry starting in 1980 when the American Psychiatric Association, at its annual meeting, started allowing pharmaceutical companies to sponsor symposiums according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    ANTIDEPRESSANTS

    Psychiatric drugs have caused disability rates to skyrocket notes Robert Whitaker

    Antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs have not caused disability rates to fall as one might expect, but instead, these drugs have caused disability rates to skyrocket according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    ANTIDEPRESSANTS

    Stopping an antidepressant can cause severe drug withdrawal symptoms notes Robert Whitaker

    People “can have some very severe withdrawal symptoms” when they stop an antidepressant according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    (Note: This happened to my mother in 1994 which I describe below.)

    ANTIDEPRESSANTS

    Antidepressants should not be used as first-line therapy for depression notes Robert Whitaker

    Britain has recently changed its recommendations, saying that antidepressants should not be used as first-line therapy for depression, that they are just not that effective, and they have all these side effects according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    Doctors in Britain are now writing prescriptions for exercise for depression.

    The number of doctors writing prescriptions for exercise was 4% in 2007, and now is 25%.

    ANTIPSYCHOTIC DRUGS

    Antipsychotic drugs can cause psychosis notes Robert Whitaker

    Antipsychotic drugs cause problems by blocking dopamine receptors, which causes the body to pour out more dopamine which increases the vulnerability to psychosis according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    Long-term use of antidepressants turn a short-term illness into a chronic illness, Robert Whitaker

    Long-term use of antidepressants turn a short-term illness into a chronic illness according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    He noted since most people recover from depression on their own, the initial rationale for using drugs was to see if they could help people recover faster.

    However, what doctors started noticing was that when depressed patients were given antidepressants, they were relapsing more frequently.

    So the question became are these drugs turning a short-term illness into a chronic illness?

    Before antidepressants were used, people with depression usually got better without intervention

    Before antidepressants were used, people with depression, even with major depression, usually got better noted author and journalist Robert Whitaker in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    He noted that in 1974, Dean Skyler, head of the depression section at the National Institutes of Mental Health wrote, “Most depressive episodes will run their course and terminate with virtually complete recovery without specific intervention.”

    Whitaker noted that someone else wrote, “Depression is on a whole, one of the psychiatric conditions with the best prognosis for eventual recovery with or without treatment. Most depressions are self-limited.”

    CVD RISK CALCULATOR

    The 2013 cardiovascular risk calculator overestimates the risk of a heart attack or stroke 5-6 fold!

    The 2013 cardiovascular risk calculator which was put out by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association overestimates the risk of a heart attack 5-6 fold in most people according to a study done by Kaiser Permanente Northern California.

    Comments

    Lies, lies and more lies from researchers paid by the drug companies to scare people into taking statins, which I believe are not only worthless, but dangerous. (If you have any doubt about this — that statins are not only worthless, but dangerous — see the articles about statins and cholesterol listed at the end of this article.)

    Imagine that.

    It makes me want to vomit.

    I no longer believe ANYTHING or ANYONE associated with the drug companies!

    As I stated in 2014, I no longer believe drug studies or drug researchers paid by drug companies or guidelines or risk calculators or anything else that is associated with the drug companies in any way, shape or form.
        This includes the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology.

    Marcia Angell, MD, former editor at the New England Journal of Medicine: It is no longer possible to believe drug studies or key opinion leaders or medical guidelines (or risk calculators)

    As Marcia Angell, MD, former editor at the New England Journal of Medicine for 21 years, wrote in 2009,

        “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research [ drug research ] that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines [ or risk calculators ].
        “I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades [ 21 years ] as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

    WHOLE GRAINS

    Eating 4 servings of whole grains per day associated with 22% lower risk of death

    Eating 4 servings (70 grams) of whole grains per day was associated with a 22% lower risk of dying during the study periods compared with those who ate little or no whole grains according to an meta-analysis of 14 studies that involved a total of 786,076 people.

    Each 16 grams (one serving) intake of whole grains per day was associated with a 7% lower risk of dying during the study periods.

    BROWN RICE VS WHITE RICE

    White rice associated with 17% higher risk of diabetes, 5 servings per week vs less than 1 per month

    People eating 5 or more servings of white rice per week had a 17% greater risk of type 2 diabetes compared to those eating less than one serving per month after adjusting for age, lifestyle and dietary risk factors according to a 2010 analysis by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

    Replacing one-third serving of white rice with brown rice per day lowers type 2 diabetes risk 16%

    “We estimated that replacing [one-third serving] of white rice with the same amount of brown rice was associated with a 16% lower risk of type 2 diabetes, whereas the same replacement with whole grains as a group was associated with a 36% lower diabetes risk,” the authors of the paper noted.

    CHOLESTEROL

    Older people with high LDL levels live as long or longer as those with low LDL in 16 of 19 studies

    In people over 60, those with the highest LDL cholesterol levels were at a lower risk of dying over some number of years than those with the lowest LDL levels in 16 of 19 studies according to a new review paper by Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PhD, author of The Cholesterol Myths, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con, and others.

    One-fourth with highest LDL levels 29-59% less likely to die over next 3-9 years

    In 12 of those studies, the one-fourth of people with the highest LDL levels were 29% to 59% less likely to have died over the next 3-9 years than the one-fourth of people with the lowest LDL levels.

    STATINS & BREAST CANCER

    Long-term statin use is associated with double the risk of breast cancer

    Long-term statin use is associated with double the risk of breast cancer according to a 2013 study.

    Current users of statins for 10 years or longer had a 1.8-fold increased risk of invasive ductal carcinoma and a 2-fold increased risk of invasive lobular carcinoma compared with never users of statins.

    Among women diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia, current users of statins for 10 years or longer had 2-times the risk of invasive ductal carcinoma and 2.4-times the risk of invasive lobular carcinoma compared with never users.

    “In this contemporary population-based case-control study, long-term use of statins was associated with increased risks of both [invasive ductal carcinoma] and [invasive lobular carcinoma],” the authors of the study concluded.

    “A complete reassessment [of all statin trials] is mandatory.

    “Until then, physicians should be aware that the present claims about the efficacy and safety of statins are not evidence based.

    STATINS

    Crestor (rosuvastatin) is NOT effective at preventing heart attack or death says two cardiologists

    “Our systematic review [of four (4) randomized controlled trials published since 2005/2006] ... unambiguously showed that rosuvastatin [Crestor] is not effective in secondary prevention, while the results are highly debatable in primary prevention,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD.

    In other words, statins don’t work even in people who have had a heart attack!

    Secondary prevention is when they give a drug—a statin in this case—to people who have had a heart attack or have cardiovascular disease and they are trying to prevent another heart attack or death.

    Primary Prevention is when they give a drug—a statin in this case—to people who do not have cardiovascular disease or have not had a heart attack and are trying to prevent a heart attack or death in the first place.

    STATINS

    It is worrisome that it took 30 years to realize statins increase diabetes says two cardiologists

    “As for the safety of statin treatment – a major issue for medical doctors – it is quite worrisome to realize that it took 30 years to bring to light the triggering effect of statins on new-onset diabetes, manifestly reflecting a high level of bias in reporting harmful outcomes in commercial trials, as has been admitted by the recent confession of prominent experts in statin treatment,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD.

    Obviously, the drug companies hid this information and their paid researchers went along with this lie.

    Can you understand why I don’t believe anything from the drug companies or from their paid researchers?
