'The Northern Illinois University Murders Due to 'Chemical Imbalances' or 'Chemical Balancers' - Drugs?' - Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD, Neurologist/Child Neurologist

EL CAJON, Calif., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Writing of the Northern Illinois University shooter, Steven P. Kazmierczak, The New York Times (Benedict Carey, 2/19/08, A20) remarks " ... doctors say it is almost impossible to tell whether the spasms of violence stem in part from the drug reactions or the underlying illnesses." A girlfriend said Kazmierczac took Prozac to battle anxiety and compulsive behavior. While psychiatry (psychology too) and the pharmaceutical industry want anxiety, depression, elation impulsiveness, poor conduct, trouble with math, reading, writing, etc., portrayed as brain abnormalities/diseases/disorders/syndromes, so as to be able to portray their drugs as "treatments," throughout medical recorded history, there is no such thing as an demonstrable physical abnormality/disease in all of psychiatry.

Diseases of the brain, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-Lou Gehrig's disease, stroke, meningitis, etc., are the province of neurology, my specialty. This was assured in 1948 when the two specialties were formally split with "neuropsychiatry" becoming the separate, new specialties, "psychiatry" and "neurology." This means that the drugs prescribed by psychiatrists (and throughout mental health, by all sorts of doctors) are toxins/poisons, the first and only demonstrable abnormality/disease that psychiatric patients have. But today, patients are lied to -- told, for purposes of informed consent, that they have a disease or chemical imbalance. This gains their consent. Whether it is actual informed consent is irrelevant to the pharmaceutical companies. There is little doubt that without the "chemical imbalance" lie the epidemic psychiatric drug poisoning would be a small fraction of what it is today.

As in the University of Northern Illinois case, almost all of the high school, and college shooters have been psychiatric patients on a diet of psychiatric drugs. Nor is the issue of whether they still have the poison in their system or not critical. All psychiatric drugs damage the previously normal brain and body. This is how they alter the subjective symptoms for which they are said to be "treatment." Even if stopped they have altered and thus damaged the previously normal individual.

At a 1970 Congressional hearing on the drugging of school children where hyperactivity was first called a brain disease, Dr John D. Griffith, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, testified: "I would like to point out that every drug, however innocuous, has some degree of toxicity. A drug, therefore, is a type of poison and its poisonous qualities must be carefully weighed against its therapeutic usefulness." Such a scientific, weighing of the risks vs. the benefits of psychiatric medications is virtually never carried out today because the psychiatric diagnosis, never a "chemical imbalance"/disease, is always portrayed as one. Why? Because the psychiatric diagnosis is almost always portrayed as one requiring treatment with a "chemical balancer", or pill. Every year, tens of thousands of children are court-ordered to take psychiatric drugs for diagnoses such as ADHD, conduct and oppositional-defiant disorders. Should their parents refuse, then, without trial, the parents are pronounced "medically negligent" and threatened with the loss of custody of the child -- their child. Their child whose emotional life they are no longer allowed to direct. This is what we have come to in the USA!

Eric Harris, who was denied enlistment into the armed services, and one of the two Columbine shooters, had been on Zoloft, a Prozac-like antidepressant. There is no such thing as the balancing of the "chemical imbalance" portrayed in the Zoloft ad. And yet the FDA, as much a part of the pharmaceutical enterprise as psychiatry, allows the pharmaceuticals to peddle their lies directly to the American public via publicly-owned airwaves.

Today, in the US, we have been so taken in by the "chemical imbalance"/ "chemical balancer" lie that 9-10 million school children are on one or more psychiatric drugs, including 60-70% of those in foster care (who cannot defend themselves). At the same time psychiatry asks us to believe that half of all of us in the US will one day be afflicted with a "serious mental disorder"/ "chemical imbalance" ("Are we all going mad, or are the experts crazy?" Stuart A. Kirk, Los Angeles Times, August 14, 2005) and that they too will need one or more "chemical balancers"/drugs.
