The FDA is biting the hand that feeds them?

What is the FDA going to do for a bed partner?

Why do you spam that same cartoon in some many places? Its the same one my former handler on the Scientology forum, Dermot, used to show everyone. This is only reaffirming my notion that you post lots of inter-changeable garbage.

There Are No "Chemical Imbalances"

"The hypothetical disturbances of neurochemical function that are said to underlie "mental illness" are just that: hypothetical. No experiment has ever shown that anyone has an "imbalance" of any neurotransmitters or any other brain chemicals. Nor could any conceivable experiment demonstrate the existence of a "chemical imbalance," simply because no one, least of all the biopsychiatrists, has the slightest idea what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" would look like."

"...the views and beliefs of biopsychiatry have nothing to do with the answers to scientific questions in any case: the hunt for biological "causes" of "mental illness" is an entirely fallacious enterprise in the first place; the non- existence of data to support its assertions is quite beside the point."

"The latest edition of one pharmacology text has this to say about the status of depression as a disease: "Despite extensive efforts, attempts to document the metabolic changes in human subjects predicted by these [biological] hypotheses have not, on balance, provided consistent or compelling corroboration." This is a long-winded way of admitting that not even a scrap of evidence supports the idea that depression results from a "chemical imbalance." Yet patients are told every day - by their doctors, by the media, and by drug company advertising - that it is a proven scientific fact that depression has a known biochemical origin. It follows directly that millions of Americans are being lied to by their doctors; and people surely can't give informed consent for drug treatment when what they're being "informed" by is a fraud.... To sum up: there is no evidence whatsoever to support the view that "mental illness" is biochemical in origin; in other words, things like "Unipolar Disorder" and "Attention Deficit Disorder" simply do not exist."

That doesn't change your original and often repeated allegation. You say there's no such thing as a chemical imbalance, so you need to either back down or prove this assertion.

There is a chemical balance.

The mental health industry has "no test" for a chemical balance and they couldn't tell a good chemical balance from a bad one..

There has been "No" biological defect found for any mental illness or any of the other made to order diagnoses by any neurological study.

Without a test for chemical imbalance the mental health (psychiatry) is limited in the ancillary tests of medicine like an EKG, EEG, blood work or other tests in the diagnoses of a patient. They aren't needed in Psychiatry.

The psychiatric diagnosis is made on the basis of behavior and hearsay.

If we respect metabolic changes based on daily dietary habits, weight gain / loss , terms of the survival of the organisms as a person age along with physical conditioning, physical illness, electrolyte level, gender differences , body temperature, I don't see where the Mental Health and Counseling Industry could conform to any consistency in data with consideration to the above to state a person has a mental disease or illness based on chemical imbalance.

Psychiatry is not recognized in the sciences.

APA Admits there is no test for "chemical imbalance"

FDA actually suggesting the drugging of children should lessen? Have they at the FDA actually grown a heart, evolved a conscience, purchased a moral compass, developed feelings of guilt? Time to move on to vaccines boys and come clean about how they maim and kill.

The anti depressants as well as the mind drugs for the mental health industry is a means and way of disrupting the United States and its social flow for political reasons. The Republican and the think tank knows a lot about disrupting a nation for a coup detat.
