Data from the World Health Organization shows that outcomes for schizophrenia patients are better for poor countries of the world like India, Colombia and Nigeria than for the rich countries, and only a small percentage of patients in those countries were medicated according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.
(Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, who used large doses of niacin to treat schizophrenia, wrote about this many years ago, that schizophrenics do better in countries where they don’t use drugs.)
