It's 1984 & 1 In Every 5 Are Incurably Mentally Ill ~ Repost

Soulful Sepulcher has:

You Reside In Pharmaceutical Dreams Of The Future

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain."
"Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves."

1 in 5 Are Incurably 'Mentally Ill'

The Pharmaceutical Machinations and Vote Buying that rigged this 1 in 5 profiteering hustle in the 1st place are laid out in Allen Jones exposition of TMAP: the Texas Medication Algorithm Project.

See Allen Jones Full Whistle-Blower Report, pg.3.

"Newspaper columnist Charles T. Bowen, in an article "Quick Note; Silent Vote; No Gloat."

The Tampa Tribune, 21 April 1997, described how one former Texas legislator, Tom Robbins, was annoyed that his colleagues seemed to pass legislation that they had not even read, let alone understood. To prove a point he introduced a resolution to honor Albert de Salvo. The language of the resolution stated in part:

"This compassionate gentleman's dedication and devotion to his work has enabled the weak and the lonely throughout the nation to achieve and maintain a new degree of concern for their future. He has been officially recognized by the state of Massachusetts for his noted activities and unconventional techniques involving population control and applied psychology."

The Resolution passed with a unanimous vote.

Albert de Salvo was, of course, the Boston Strangler.

According to the National Institute on Money in State Politics, the pharmaceutical industry Contributed zero contributions to individual politicians in Texas in1994. During the 1998 Election year, pharmaceutical manufacturers made a total of 251 contributions totaling $152,000 to individual candidates for Texas state office. In 2002, the total was 419 individual contributions by drug makers totaling $384,735."

We should not be outraged that politicians can be bought, ..... that's a given. But we Should be outraged that they can be bought so cheaply, ...... because That is the reason Why, ..... 1 in Every 5 Americans are today being hunted, ..... by Ideates, ..... as dinner.

Preemption: It's ALIVE, & Worming Into State Legislatures

Just because the US Supreme Court Slapped down the FDA's Delusions of Supremacy, Doesn't mean we've made it through Preemptocrat Pass yet.

Pharma's Preemption Medusa is worming its Snake heads through the State Legislatures: attempting to keep You and Your's out of Court, after Pharma's Chemicals Put You and Your's Into the Hospital or the Grave.

Psychiatry & its 1000% Increase OF 'Mental Illness'

We've recently added 2 remarkable, free PDF downloads to our link list.

You Don't have to be a Neuroscientist to understand them. They are Brief, plainly written, and Right to the point. Together they will teach you Everything you Need to know about the Lethal Junk Science of Psychiatry, ..... in a Half Hour or less.

Anatomy Of An Epidemic * by Robert Whitaker, 13 pages in length

Suicides and Psychiatric Drugs by Janne Larsson, 14 pages in length

Mr Whitaker concludes with:
A century ago, fewer than two people per 1,000 were considered to be"disabled" by mental illness and in need of hospitalisation. By 1955, that number had jumped to 3.38 people per 1,000, and during the past 50 years, a period when psychiatric drugs have been the cornerstone of care, the disability rate has climbed steadily, and has now reached around 20 people per 1,000. (Table 2). As with any epidemic, one would suspect that an outside agent of some type-a virus, a bacterial infection, or an environmental toxin was causing this rise in illness. That is indeed the case here. There is an outside agent fueling this epidemic of mental illness, only it is to be found in the medicine cabinet. Psychiatric drugs perturb normal neurotransmitter function, and while that perturbation may curb symptoms over a short term, over the long run it increases the likelihood that a person will become chronically ill, or ill with new and more severe symptoms. A review of the scientific literature shows quite clearly that it is our drug-based paradigm of care that is fueling this modem-day plague.
From 2 to 20 is a 1000% Increase.

From Chapter 14 (pg 13) of Larsson's Report
The officials at the National Board of Health and Welfare know that the psychiatric drugs can induce suicidality or increased suicidality (especially in the beginning, when doses are increased/lowered, when other drugs are added, or during the withdrawal phase). They are aware about the now accepted serious harmful drug effect akathisia as an underlying cause in cases of suicide and violence against others. They know that serious physical and mental conditions can be caused by the use of several psychiatric drugs at the same time and, as written before, the “adequate drug treatment” among the persons committing suicide was on the average four different psychiatric drugs the preceding year. There is in the material submitted to the Board about the treatment an abundance of evidence that harmful effects induced by the drugs are seen as even more “symptoms” – and that these harmful effects are then handled with even more drugs, with a fatal outcome.

But the psychiatric drugs are not challenged. No questions are asked about their role in the subsequent suicides. And the very reason for this is that old myths about the protective effect of antidepressants and neuroleptics against suicide – directly taken from the false marketing material of the pharmaceutical companies – still govern the activities at the top of the National Board of Health and Welfare.

The paradigm of Psychiatric 'Care' is to Misinterpret the Direct, Behavioral Toxicity which Psychiatric Drugs CAUSE in a person as evidence that the person is Ill-er than even the Ideate Peddling the Toxic Drugs had known, ...... in order to Profitably Sell their Victim even More of the Toxic Drug which Caused the Person's Behavior to Deteriorate in the First Place.

We're Re Running these 3 Videos in case You're New here. Neuroleptics/Antipsychotics CAUSE the Tardive Dyskinesias and Tardive Dystonias displayed in them.

Tardive Dystonia

Tardive Dyskinesia

Here, http://www.psychiatrictimes.com/clinical-scales/movement_disorders#_

at Psychiatric Times: Dr. Jay Pomerantz offers downloadable forms to score the Damage that Antipsychotics inflict.
"The original publication of the AIMS is often cited as: Guy W. ECDEU Assessment Manual for Psychopharmacology, Rockville, MD, US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, 1976."
AIMS and the Damage Psychiatry records with it is nothing "unknown" to The Industry which the FDA is Supposed to be overseeing. Nor is AIMS unknown to the US Dept of Health, Education, and Welfare, ..... SINCE 1976:

33 YEARS ago. BUT:

From FDA, 30 years later:
"The effect that symptomatic suppression has upon the long-term course of the syndrome is unknown."
10/06/2006: pg 13
"There is no known treatment for established cases of tardive dyskinesia, although the syndrome may remit, partially or completely, if antipsychotic treatment is withdrawn. Antipsychotic treatment, itself, however, may suppress (or partially suppress) the signs and symptoms of the syndrome and thereby may possibly mask the underlying process. The effect that symptomatic suppression has upon the long-term course of the syndrome is unknown. (since 1976)
page 25

Associated With Discontinuation of Treatment
"Suicide attempt was associated with discontinuation in 1.2% of RISPERDAL®-treated patients compared to 0.6% of placebo patients, but, given the almost 40-fold greater exposure time in RISPERDAL® compared to placebo patients, it is unlikely that suicide attempt is a RISPERDAL®-related adverse event (see PRECAUTIONS)"
A 100% Increase?

Page 38:

Physical and Psychological Dependence
RISPERDAL® has not been systematically studied in animals or humans for its potential for abuse, tolerance, or physical dependence.
But out of the blue is a 100% Increase in Suicidal Behavior upon Discontinuation. Ohhh-K.

Page 41:

Pediatric Use
The safety and effectiveness of RISPERDAL® in pediatric patients with schizophrenia have not been established.

1 FDA Year Later:

08/22/2007: Patient Population Alerted Label

Page 30

8.4 Pediatric Use
"The efficacy and safety of RISPERDAL® in the treatment of schizophrenia were demonstrated in 417 adolescents, aged 13 – 17 years, in two short-term (6 and 8 weeks, respectively) double- blind controlled trials"
Page 27

6.9 Postmarketing Experience
"Other adverse events reported since market introduction, which were temporally related to RISPERDAL® but not necessarily causally related, include the following: pancreatitis, pituitary adenoma, pulmonary embolism, precocious puberty, cardiopulmonary arrest, and sudden death."
That is one Fascinating Interpretation of the word "Safety" in Any language.

* The Drug epidemic begins in 1955 w/3.38 per 1000. Note that Mr Whitaker's work was published in Spring of 2005. The percentage may be above 1000% today, in 2009.

We watched this vid at a friend's blog, and commented.

Opening a Dialogue, With Govt, on the barbarism perpetrated on Mr Sandford would reflect unfavorably On Govt. itself, ..... looking out, For itself.

Ray is Not the only person Providing $50 Thousand Dollars a month for an army of State Funded Employees, and putting Them under Public scrutiny would put the entire State Mental Health System under Public scrutiny.

And With that Scrutiny would come the Loss of $ Millions of Dollars in Federal and State Funding to keep those State employees on board, as part of Govt's own "You watch my back, I'll watch your's" life support mechanism.

Half Of Young Adults Have Mental Disorder

..... Overall, the authors note, the rate of psychiatric disorders is high among young adults, who are at a vulnerable stage of development.

“The vast majority of disorders in this population can be effectively treated with evidence-based psychosocial and pharmacological approaches,” they conclude.

“Early treatment could reduce the persistence of these disorders and their associated functional impairment, loss of productivity and increased health care costs. As these young people represent our nation’s future, urgent action is needed to increase detection and treatment of psychiatric disorders among college students and their non–college-attending peers.”

Altering Brain and Body chemistry produces Disease, Hellish Confusion, Psychotic Meltdowns, and Death.

Why do University Psychiatric programs/researchers Continue to produce Disease, Hellish Confusion, Psychotic Meltdowns, and Death?

The Washington Post has:

When Science Is A Siren Song
..... "Part of the problem is that we've been conditioned to trust university research. It is based, after all, on the presumably lofty motives of its practitioners. What's not to like about science carried out by academics who have nobly dedicated their lives to understanding the unknown, furthering knowledge and serving humanity?

Within academia's ivied walls, the view is a bit different. The university is not a peaceable kingdom, and life is far more Hobbesian. Henry Kissinger was on to something when he observed that "university politics are so vicious precisely because the stakes are so small." In contrast to the academia-vs.-industry trope, hubris, self-interest and ambition are not checked at the university door; arguably, they are essential for admission and required for professional success.

University researchers are in a constant battle for recognition and the rewards associated with success: research space, speaking engagements, funding and autonomy. Consequently, while academic research is often described as "curiosity-driven," the reality is messier, as (curiously) many researchers tend to pursue the trendiest technologies and explore topics that happen to be associated with the most generous levels of research support.

Moreover, since academic success is determined almost exclusively by the number and prestige of research publications, the incentives to generate results are exceedingly powerful and can encourage investigators to see patterns that may not exist, to disregard contradictory observations that might be important, to overvalue data that might be preliminary or unreliable, and to embrace conclusions that deserve to be viewed with far greater skepticism. .....

More Than 500 Backlogged Whistle-Blower Cases Allege Health Care, Drug Company Fraud
"Whistle-blower lawsuits alleging that pharmaceutical companies and government contractors defrauded the federal government have created a backlog of more than 900 cases at the Department of Justice, the Washington Post reports. According to the Post, more than 500 of the cases involve the health care and pharmaceutical industries, as well as Medicare and Medicaid.

Patrick Burns, a spokesperson for Taxpayers Against Fraud, said, "Even if no new cases are filed, it might take 10 years for the Department of Justice to clear its desk.

Lawyers involved in the backlogged disputes say DOJ "cannot keep pace with the surge in charges brought by whistle-blowers," the Post reports. Since 2001, 300 to 400 civil cases have been filed each year; however, the 75-lawyer unit that reviews the allegations investigates about 100 cases annually. Whistle-blowers routinely wait 14 or more months to find out whether DOJ will get involved in the case, during which time whistle-blowers are not allowed to discuss or disclose the existence of such disputes. The government rejects about three-quarters of the cases it receives, saying the majority lack merit.

$1.2 Billion in Drug Money Profits Cost Drug Companies $133 Million in Drug Money "User Fee" Payouts.
"..... The pharmaceutical industry also enjoys significant R&D savings as a result of shorter review times. Under PDUFA, FDA reduced new drug review by 12 months. Each month of reduced review results in an average saving of $2.5 million, or $30 million in R&D cost savings over 12 months. Given that FDA approves an average of 40 NMEs and biologics per year, the savings to industry represent $1.2 billion annually. The program represents a bargain in light of the $133 million that industry paid in user fees in FY2001. ...... "

Institute of Medicine Elects 65 New Members, Five Foreign Associates

WASHINGTON -- The Institute of Medicine of the National Academies today announced the names of its 65 newly elected members, raising the Institute's total active membership to 1,382. In addition, the Institute honored five individuals by election to foreign associate membership, bringing the total members in that category to 71.

"It is a great pleasure to welcome these distinguished and influential individuals to the Institute of Medicine," said IOM President Harvey V. Fineberg. "Members are elected through a highly selective process that recognizes those who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health. Election is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of medicine and health."

Current active members elect new members from among candidates nominated for their professional achievement and commitment to service. An unusual diversity of talent among members is assured by the Institute's charter, which stipulates that at least one-quarter be selected from outside the health professions, from such fields as the natural, social, and behavioral sciences, as well as law, administration, engineering, and the humanities.
Ed. note: This is the subversion through Law, Administration and Engineering of Your Inalienable Rights to promote social, behavioral (junk) science, and the humanities, ..... which remain what they've Always been: Political Opinions.
The Institute of Medicine is unique for its structure as both an honorific membership organization and an analytic and advisory organization. Established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute has become recognized as a national resource for independent, scientifically informed analysis and recommendations on issues related to human health. With their election, members make a commitment to devote a significant amount of volunteer time as members of IOM committees, which engage in a broad range of studies on health policy issues.

Current projects of the Institute include: an assessment of evidence on the potential benefits and risks of testosterone replacement therapy, and of whether clinical trials should be conducted and how; a review of the current state of knowledge and policy regarding spinal cord injury; a study to assess the factors responsible for the epidemic of obesity in children, and to develop an action plan to decrease its prevalence; a project examining how to address the public's lack of "health literacy"; and a study exploring patterns of malaria and malarial drug resistance, with the aim of developing policy strategies that could lead to better treatment.

Reports from the Institute completed in the past year include: Childhood Cancer Survivorship: Improving Care and Quality of Life, a report on the quality of care experienced by childhood cancer survivors, and their long-term health outlook; Microbial Threats to Health: Emergence, Detection, and Response, which examines the complexities and challenges posed by infectious diseases such as SARS, and the trends that contribute to the emergence of these threats; Financing Vaccines in the 21st Century: Assuring Access and Availability, which recommends that government change its role from merely purchasing vaccines to ensuring immunization for all citizens through a new publicly funded insurance mandate and voucher plan; Hidden Costs, Value Lost: Uninsurance in America, a report that estimates the potential value of improved health outcomes expected to be gained from expanded insurance coverage to range from $65 billion to $130 billion annually; and Leadership by Example: Coordinating Government Roles in Improving Health Care Quality, which calls for stronger federal actions to improve the quality of health care and proposes a rigorous implementation strategy for achieving this.

"In the July 30, 2002 issue of National Journal's Congress Daily, PhRMA had a full page add quoting Lester M. Crawford, D.V.M. on the dangers of reimporting drugs.

"[Reimportation] would actually create an incentive for unscrupulous individuals to find ways to sell unsafe or counterfeit drugs that, while purported to be from Canada, may actually originate in any part of the world."

"...the threat does not depend upon the nature of the reimported product, but upon the integrity of those handling it."

[The current] "closed regulatory system has been very successful in preventing unapproved, adulterated or misbranded drug products from entering the U.S. stream of commerce. Legislation that would establish other distribution route for products, particularly where those routes routintely transverse a U.S. border, creates a wide inlet for counterfeit drugs and other dangerous products that are potentially injurious to the public health and a threat to the security of our nation's drug supply.

On October 16, 2006, the US Justice Department formally charged Crawford with lying and violating conflict-of-interest laws for falsely reporting his ownership of stock in companies regulated by the FDA. Specifically, according to the charging documents, he falsely stated in a 2004 government filing that shares of Sysco Corp. and Kimberly-Clark Corp. had been sold when he and his wife continued to hold them, and also failed to disclose income from exercising stock options in Embrex Inc. He pleaded guilty the next day.

On February 27, 2007, was sentenced to three years' supervised probation and fines of roughly $90,000.

12/04/2004: The Queens Gazette had:

Majority Of Seniors Will Save $ Under New Rx Program

"Dr. Mark B. McClennan, who heads the Medicare program as administrator of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, welcomed the study. He said it is part of a growing consensus that the historic new drug program will present many seniors with savings on their prescription drug spending.

McClellan said many people will sign up if for no other reason than they will receive protection against extremely high drug costs and catastrophic illness. This will occur when a Medicare member spends $3,600, the limit in out-of-pocket expenses under the new program, after which he or she would pay only 5 percent of the cost of a prescription.

Under the new plan, the greatest danger of experiencing high out-of-pocket costs will occur when a member reaches the gap in coverage known as the “doughnut hole,” which means the member must pay the entire price for prescriptions until the total expenditures reach $3,600. According to the study, this is expected to happen to about 6.9 million people who already have very high drug costs and no other program that gives them assistance in offsetting these costs."

Hmmm: $3,600 Out of a Senior's Fixed Income IF those pills don't kill them off 1st, as they're making it through the 'Donut Hole' to continue Buying those pills, ....... at 95% Off. And this was a 'Good' idea, as opposed to a 'Bad' idea.

The Number 3 Killer In America Is Iatrogenesis
Have you ever heard of iatrogenesis? The word doesn't even sound that harmful. It comes from two Greek words – iatros – meaning physician, and genesis – meaning created. Yes, the number 3 killer in America is death by doctor. .....

...... But hospitals are dangerous places. The primary reason for people dying unnecessarily in a hospital is the pharmaceutical drug. This is a strange thing to hear. We know that drugs have saved many lives, and we tend to hold the drugs in great esteem. But there is a flipside. Many of the most commonly prescribed drugs are also terrible killers, due to bad patient reactions and the possibility of human error in administering the drugs.

Pharmaceutical drugs are immensely powerful, in a good way and a bad way. Take the right drug at the right time and it will help your illness in a dramatic way. Take the wrong drug at the wrong time and it will kill you on the spot. ......

PTSD Meds Killing Soldiers After The Battle
"CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Stan and Shirley White's son Andrew, a Marine reservist, died at home 2 1/2 years after he returned from Iraq.

Janette Layne lost her husband, Eric, in similar circumstances after his return from Iraq.

More than a year later, they still don't know if the medication their loved ones were taking for post-traumatic stress disorder contributed to their deaths.

Andrew White and Eric Layne were taking Seroquel, Klonopin and Paxil, along with prescription painkillers.

Three other West Virginia servicemen have died in their sleep while undergoing PTSD treatment after returning from Iraq. ........

..... Stan White and (Dr. Fred) Baughman track soldiers and veterans who die in their sleep or slumped at work stations. They contact the families when they hear about such deaths to ask about psychiatric diagnoses and medications. Military casualty officers won't release details.

They found three others from West Virginia. Jeremy Harper, 19, of Dunbar died Jan. 1, 2005, at Walter Reed Army Medical Center while being treated for PTSD. Nicholas Endicott of Logan County, who died at a military hospital in Bethesda, Md., also suffered from PTSD. Derek Johnson, 22, of Hurricane died last year while taking the three drugs.

Baughman notes Seroquel's link to fatal heart arrhythmias and irregularities. He's now researching the death of Chad Oligschlaeger, 21, a Texas Marine who died in May while taking six medications for PTSD, including Seroquel.

"I'm telling you right now, these drugs are unfit for human consumption, across the board," Baughman said. "Their side effects take two to three pages to list." .......

Would these 5 Servicemen be better off today still having their Stress, and sorting it out with friends, family and on their own, ....... or being 'Treated' for it, ...... by Ideates?

We've posted on this ongoing tragedy already. We Don't want to have to post on it again. But we are Going to, because with Govt Increasing the Funding for 'Mental Health' at Tax payer expense, ...... this IS going to keep happening in ever increasing numbers.

Our Servicemen and Servicewomen are not numbers, and they are Not disposables for Tax Funded, Change Agent, Behavioral $cientists to experiment on.

Non Profit Hospitals: Fraud, Abuse & Death

Op Ed News has:

Doctors Demand Justice For Patient Advocate Whistleblower
Washington- No one is safe when hospitals put profit before patients. Recent revelations of continued fraud at hospitals belonging to the chain of for-profits known as the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA, formerly known as Columbia-HCA) continue to shock the conscience of a people already reeling from fraud in the banking, mortgage and financial sectors. Will a medical meltdown be next? Public safety advocates have asked Congress to mandate special protections for medical whistleblowers. HCA has faced the largest false claims suits in history, and had paid more than $1.7 Billion dollars in fines for bilking taxpayers and patients. Despite these huge payouts, HCA apparently continues the misconduct that led to its already enormous fines. With 17% of the US GNP devoted to medical care, and with increasing amounts of bailout money going to health, the need for protection has never been greater. .......

This report details a Doctor receiving Death Threats, for exposing extensive evidence of false billing, patient endangerment, and death in Grand Jury Documents.

"Evidence shows a shocking alteration of charts, and that HCA-Virginia may actual(ly) have put patients in jeopardy in order to frame Dr. Vuyyuru."

The Justice Department investigation was prompted by articles in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which found at least 136 suspicious deaths of hospital patients and almost 200 confirmed cases of patient abuse from 2002 through late 2007."

Hmmm. For Profit And Non Profit, ...... These Hospitals are looking pretty Non Profitable to the Patient.
