Psychiatric medications are not only useless, but they’re responsible for killing at least 500,000 people aged 65 years and older every single year. This is the shocking conclusion of a new meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that challenges the widely held belief that antidepressants and dementia drugs are safe and effective for treating mental health issues.
Researchers from Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre broke the disturbing news after poring through loads of published data on this class of drugs and finding that virtually none of it is suggestive of either safety or efficacy. To the contrary, nearly every placebo-controlled trial used by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in justifying the legal prescription of psych meds shows minimal or no benefits.
The paper revealed that virtually every randomized trial ever conducted that involved psych meds failed to properly evaluate the drugs’ effects in users. The “control” groups in these bogus studies, it turns out, were made up of folks who were previously taking other psychiatric drugs, rendering any and all findings moot. And yet these were the very studies that U.S. regulators used to approve such drugs as “safe and effective.”
“Patients, who after a short wash-out period are randomized to placebo, go ‘cold turkey’ and often experience withdrawal symptoms,” wrote the paper’s authors. “This design exaggerates the benefits of treatment and increases the harms in the placebo group, and it has driven patients taking placebo to suicide in trials in schizophrenia.”
In other words, the companies that produce these psych meds, and who also design the clinical trials used to “test” and approve them, are using human beings as guinea pigs in blatantly corrupt experiments posing as “science.” People are dying left and right not only from these trials, but also from the use of the drugs “tested” in these trials post-approval.
“Based on some of the randomised trials that were included in a meta-analysis of 100,000 patients by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, I have estimated that there are likely to have been 15 times more suicides among people taking antidepressants than reported by the FDA,” adds the paper.
“[F]or example, there were 14 suicides in 9,956 patients in trials with fluoxetine (Prozac) and paroxetine (Paxil), whereas the FDA had only five suicides in 52,960 patients, partly because the FDA only included events up to 24 hours after patients stopped taking the drug.”
The paper also looked at the effectiveness of antidepressants and came to similarly troubling conclusions – there are none. Based on the findings of multiple studies looking at the effectiveness of several classes of psych meds, Nordic Cochrane Centre researchers discovered that nearly every psych drug on the market showed little benefit while greatly increasing patient death rates.
“Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm — by dropping all antidepressants, ADHD drugs, and dementia drugs (as the small effects are probably the result of unblinding bias) and using only a fraction of the antipsychotics and benzodiazepines we currently use,” concludes the paper.
“The would lead to healthier and more long lived populations.”
Sadly, the vaccine industry does the exact same thing with vaccine trials, creating fake “control” groups where participants are given other vaccines rather than a real placebo. The results, consequently, are highly skewed in favor of what the company hopes to achieve – a perfect record of vaccine safety and effectiveness.
And why wouldn’t they do this? These are the same companies that produce dangerous and ineffective psych meds like the kind exposed in the new Nordic Cochrane Centre paper. Eli Lilly and Company, the multinational corporation that manufactures Prozac, which has been exposed as useless and extremely harmful, also manufactures thimerosal, the mercury preservative still used in multi-dose vials of flu vaccine.
And GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the first drug company to hold the patent for Paxil before the drug went generic, manufacturers all sorts of vaccines, including Boostrix (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), Cervarix (HPV), Engerix-B (hepatitis B), Fluarix and Fluarix Quadrivalent (influenza), Flulaval and Flulaval Quadrivalent (influenza), Havrix (hepatitis A), and more.
“There is not one double-blind, placebo-controlled study in the history of vaccine development that has ever proven their safety, effectiveness or achievements (unless those achievements have underlined their damage to human health),” warns the International Medical Council on Vaccination.
“There are also no controlled studies completed in any country which have objectively proven that vaccines have had any direct or consequential effect on the reduction of any type of disease in any part of the world. Every single study that has ever attempted to validate the safety and effectiveness of vaccines has conclusively established carcinogenic, mutagenic, neurotoxic or fertility impairments, but they won’t address those.”
