Anti depressants cause depression. Get away from the mind drugs and the LIES of the Mental Health Industry that has no science. No medical model. No evidence based medicine and no test for chemical imbalance or any imaging device to determine a detective brain. The industry is based on hearsay , voodoo, Crystal Ball gazing and Tarot card readings. Their objective is drugging America for political reasons. Protect your children.

Considering the polution of waters in west virginia,

We need to move our position on the Pharmaceutical industry getting off Scott free in the po!ution of the under ground waters worldwide including lakes, streams, rivers, oceans and ponds caused by direct dumping or the human discharge containing the chemistry of their products . As we know, the human discharge can come up in bathing and drinking waters in areas saturated with the prescribed medications and can be political causing couch potatoes or those not wanting to vote. Pharmaceutical drugs such as Statin drugs cause memory loss or mind drugs that cause personality changes including alteration of thought that is detrimental to the society including depression is apparent.

The Mental Health Industry has no science. No medical model. No evidence based medicine and no test for chemical imbalance of the brain to prescribe this poison on the society for the riches of a few and political control over the society. The democrats need to wake up.
