Common Drugs: Celebrex, Advil, Motrin, Aleve Gain Serous New FDA Warnings on Heart Attack & Stroke

NSAIDs Warnings: “Today we know that the risk of heart attack and stroke may occur early in treatment, even in the first weeks … “There is no period of use shown to be without risk”

The warning about using NSAIDs with antidepressants came out long ago. When taken together the combination can cause gastrointestinal bleeding.

Which common drugs are we talking about? From the FDA website: “Common OTC NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). In addition, some combination medicines that relieve various symptoms, such as multi-symptom cold products, contain NSAIDs.”

Just last month the FDA issued new even stronger Black Box Warnings on these drugs used daily by most everyone. They are very serious warnings, so much so that since they have made little headline news I want to make sure you are all aware of this. Such strong warnings are these additions to their Black Box Warning that we have articles with titles as, “Picked Out a Coffin Yet? Take Ibuprofen and Die” Please do not miss a word of this post!

Most Vulnerable & Deadly Period of Prescription Use for Patients

Why isn’t this headline news when people take tons of these chemicals everyday thinking they’ve been thoroughly tested and are totally safe? Now we find out that’s not the case. But what is new? This is the main reason we formed the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org) two decades ago as stated in our mission statement. We send out warnings like this during the most vulnerable period for patients – between when the FDA issues approval until the warnings and withdrawing from the market comes on prescription drugs.

Note this statement by the doctor whose study got the NSAIDs Vioxx pulled closely followed by the removal of the NSAID Bextra: “Dr. Steven Nissen, chief of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, agrees with the evidence that these drugs do increase a person’s risk for heart attack and stroke. He says the warning, though is vague but has to be because there is no good data to give consumers or doctors a definitive answer.

“What patients need to know is, if you take the drugs, ‘What is my risk of heart attack?’ and that’s not known yet,” Nissen says. He blames this on the drugs being approved before current vigorous outcome data was required by the FDA.

“Nissen told CNN, “the writing has been on the wall for a long time.” After all, he is no stranger to these concerns. His 2001 study was the first to raise a red flag over the drug Vioxx, a COX-2 inhibitor, made by Merck, that was pulled from the market. On the heels of that, another COX-2 inhibitor, Bextra, was withdrawn.”

The FDA has known for years that taking popular nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), Aleve, and Celebrex may be dangerous for your heart. It was a decade ago, in 2005, when the agency first warned that taking NASIDs increases your risk of heart attack or stroke, either of which can be fatal.

Of course that warning did not come until after Vioxx, also an NSAID, caused up to 140,000 heart attacks in the five-year period it was on the market (it was pulled from the market in 2004).

Now Serious Black Box Warnings on NSAIDs

“Today we know that the risk of heart attack and stroke may occur early in treatment, even in the first weeks …

“There is no period of use shown to be without risk,” says Judy Racoosin, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of FDA’s Division of Anesthesia, Analgesia, and Addiction Products.”

– FDA website (See specific warnings below)

Everyone needs to understand if a drug is in a class of drugs like Vioxx was with all these other NSAIDs they work the same way, therefore, they are capable of producing similar results in the way of adverse effects. So when one is pulled from the market all of them really SHOULD also be pulled. Why do we wait for years for these warnings?!! I have been issuing this warning from the day the information came out on Vioxx. What is that saying? Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?

In light of that information about drugs in the same class should all have the same warning I thought this statement from the FDA website about asprin was very interesting: “(Although aspirin is also an NSAID, this revised warning doesn’t apply to aspirin.)” For me that would mean the same warning should apply just as this warning should have come out for all NSAIDs back when Vioxx was pulled instead of waiting another decade to issue this warning for all the others. But because doctors have been telling people for years to take asprin to prevent heart attacks, they may be worried about the backlash of wrongful death suits that may follow if they include asprin. All I can say is that after this warning I am just really grateful that somehow at age 18 I knew enough to stop the use of asprin or anything like it! This makes me extremely grateful for my knowledge of herbs and essential oils and other alternative treatments.

HEART WARNING IS FOR PRESCRIPTION AND OTC NSAIDs

So the heart warning was already included in the Black Box Warning for these drugs, but because they are so widely used, and because of the new review, the FDA, has finally strengthened the warning.

The new warning was recommended after reviewing safety information on both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs, including observational studies, a large combined analysis of clinical trials, and additional scientific publications.

The FDA’s New Black Box Warning Includes:

#1 Your risk of heart attack or stroke may increase as early as the first weeks of using an NSAID .

#2 Your risk may increase the longer you use the NSAID.

#3 The risk appears greater at higher doses.

#4 NSAIDs can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke in patients with or without heart disease or risk factors for heart disease.

#5 Patients with heart disease or risk factors for it have a greater likelihood of heart attack or stroke following NSAID use than patients without these risk factors because they have a higher risk at baseline.

#6 Patients treated with NSAIDs following a first heart attack were more likely to die in the first year after the heart attack compared to patients who were not treated with NSAIDs after their first heart attack.

#7 There is an increased risk of heart failure with NSAID use.

#8 The FDA stressed that patient and doctor alike should “remain alert for heart-related side effects” the entire time NSAIDs are being taken.

#9 They can occur after just a couple of weeks of use and even if you’re healthy and have no risk factors for heart disease

But that is not all….

Not just heart risks, but ulcers and perferation of stomach or intestines

NSAIDs, including even OTC options like aspirin, are notorious for being hard on your gastrointestinal tract, leading to potentially fatal side effects such as bleeding in your digestive tract, ulcers and perforation of your stomach or intestines! In fact asprin is known to cause as many deaths each year as AIDs.

Commonly Prescribed for Joint Pain, Yet May Destroy Carlilage & Joints

Although NSAIDs are one of the most common drug classes used to treat joint pain, they may actually disrupt cartilage synthesis and actually speed up the destruction of your cartilage and joints.

ANTIDEPRESSANT ALTERNATIVES: Service Animals Are Incredible For Depression….With Exceptions!

DEPRESSION HELP?

“He said … it’s my service animal.

And I’m allowed to have it because it helps me with my depression”

Although animals are a great stress reliever and I have always advocated for the use of service animals apparently you need to beware that there are restrictions to that. A service boa constrictor brought into a restaurant in Missouri was not much of a stress reliever for all of the other patrons at this Missouri restaurant. LOL!

Come to think of it though …. most everyone I know who has had to deal with the adverse effects and after effects of the antidepressants and benzos given for depression would far rather have taken their chances with a boa constrictor than to go through what they have on these deadly and highly addictive drugs!

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Couple rattles diner’s nerves with snake ‘service animal’

The Missouri couple said the reptile was their service animal.

MISSOURI — Snake wasn’t on the menu of a Missouri restaurant, but that’s what patrons got — along with a side of rattled nerves

A reptile, thought to be a boa constrictor, was brought into an eatery in Nixa this week, sending some fleeing.

Lisa Loeffelholz told CNN affiliate KYTV that she spotted a couple holding the snake and “it started to slither down into the booth behind her.”

That’s when Loeffelholz says she notified the restaurant manager — who said the couple insisted the snake was a “service animal” and the restaurant should allow it to stay.

The Missouri couple said the reptile was their service animal.

But just the sight of the woman apparently pulling the animal and then handing it over to the man at the table was enough to make Loeffelholz confront the snake handlers about their slippery excuse.

“He said … it’s my service animal. And I’m allowed to have it because it helps me with my depression,” she told the affiliate.

The snake may have had a calming effect on the couple … but by no means can it legally be deemed a “service animal.”

The American with Disabilities Act states “only dogs are recognized as service animals.”

And if the snake posed a concern for public safety, then patrons could have notified police or animal control, according to Nixa city’s communications director, Jill Finney.

“Management didn’t know what to do, because they didn’t want to violate anybody’s rights, and that’s understandable,” Finney told the affiliate.

Psych Drug Recovery: Fanta – Flight of the Bumblebee. Don’t let anyone tell you it cannot be done.

Fanta – Flight of the Bumblebee

Fanta’s lesson for those working to recover from the devastation of all mind altering medications. Don’t let anyone tell you it cannot be done.

“You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” – George Horace Lorimer

Whenever you need a dose of hope and faith in the future just watch little Fanta’s fight to recover after being pulled out of a pile of dead sheep where the newborn had been left for dead only a couple of weeks ago. She will warm your heart and give you hope. Watch her story here:

Flight of the Bumblebee from Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary on Vimeo.

https://www.facebook.com/edgarsmission/videos/10154038159800130/?fallback=1

Note that they think she also suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen during delivery so what she was working to overcome is not far from what you are all dealing with as well. Give the body and brain what they need to recover and they will respond.

Please go to our website at www.drugawareness.org to see the alternatives we have found to help rebuild after medications. My CD on withdrawal also has additional information on rebuilding.

I AM ALARMED AT THE MONSTER (SSRI/SNRI antidepressants) I CREATED! …Dr. Candace Pert

Candace-Pert

Dr. Candace Pert, Chief of Brain Biochemistry, Clinical Neuroscience Branch,

at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

Please meet my friend and fellow member of our Board of Directors at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness from 1997 until her passing in 2013, Dr. Candace Pert, …. IF YOU HAVE EVER TAKEN AN ANTIDEPRESSANT OR HAVE A LOVED ONE ON THEM you need to know more about who Candace Pert was and the significant part she played in the birth of the SSRI & SNRI antidepressants and the public statement she made strongly warning against these drugs. I refuse to allow her message warning about these drugs to die with her! I know she would want her voice heard.

Dr. Pert publicly came out against Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors in October of 1997 in TIME magazine. She boldly stated: “I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago . . . quote from Dr. Candace Pert:

“I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago. Prozac and other antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems in some susceptible people after long-term use, which has become common practice despite the lack of safety studies.

“The public is being misinformed about the precision of these selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the medical profession oversimplifies their action in the brain and ignores the body as if it exists merely to carry the head around! In short, these molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with implications that life-style changes such as diet and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation.”

Letter to the Editor of TIME Magazine, October 20, 1997, page 8.

Dr. Pert also taught that,  “Our physiology is perfectly designed for bliss and this perfection is dynamic, so taking responsibility for your own health is important.”

And who is Dr. Candace Pert? The following bio from our website contains that information:

Dr. Candace B. Pert, PhD (1946 – 2013)

“I am alarmed at the monster (serotonergic antidepressants) I created!”

Candace Pert, the discoverer of the binding assay for drug receptors which made Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors possible, joined our board in 1997 where she served until her far too early passing in September of 2013. Dr. Pert was an internationally recognized pharmacologist who published over 250 research articles and was a significant contributor to the emergence of Mind-Body Medicine as an area of legitimate scientific research in the 1980’s.

Candace Pert rose to prominence as a 27 year old graduate student at The Johns Hopkins Medical School for her discovery of the long sought and highly elusive opioid receptor in 1973, a major step in the advancement of neuroscience. The discovery of the opioid receptor would, in 1978, earn the coveted Albert Lasker Award, often a precursor to the Nobel Prize. The award went to Solomon H. Snyder, who headed the lab where Candace did the work. Dr. Pert was not cited. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Pert became Chief of the Section on Brain Biochemistry, Clinical Neuroscience Branch, at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in 1983. Later in her career, she held a Research Professorship in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. At the time of her death in 2013, Dr. Pert was working as the Chief Scientific Officer of Rapid Pharmaceuticals, which she co-founded with Dr. Michael Ruff. The company continues her research on Peptide T and an AIDS vaccine, in addition to developing new peptide drugs for traumatic brain injuries, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and neuropathic pain.

Dr. Pert appeared in the feature film What the Bleep Do We Know!?? and was an on air contributor to Bill Moyer’s TV program Healing and the Mind. She is the author of the books Molecules of Emotion:The Scientific Basis Behind Mind-Body Medicine (Scribner, 1997) and Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d (Hay House, 2006). She also authored the musical guided imagery CD Psychosomatic Wellness: Healing your Body-Mind. Her AIDS drug Peptide T was featured in the 2013 Oscar winning movie Dallas Buyers Club.

Links for ordering her book, MOLECULES OF EMOTION, can be found on our “Recommended Books” page.)

[We report with saddened hearts the passing of Dr. Pert in September of 2013]

PLEASE REFER ANYONE ALARMED BY DR. PERT’S STATEMENT TO THE SAFE WITHDRAWAL CD BELOW!!  We do not want people thinking they should just stop these medications without knowing how to go about that safely.

HISTORY OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS – Just Where Did Your Medication Come From?

Eli Lilly heroin bottle Eli Lilly’s Heroin

[Note that they actually had to label their drugs “poison” back then]

Eli Lilly brought us the entire SSRI antidepressant era when they introduced the first SSRI Prozac the end of 1987. Since they were the ones that developed and introduced the first of these serotonin specific antidepressants anyone taking an antidepressant should want to know more about them and their history as all of the new antidepressants are clones of Prozac and Lilly has introduced another one called Cymbalta that is now facing a huge lawsuit for the withdrawal affect associated with it. But Prozac was the mother drug of them all. So how and why did they develop and introduce this drug? I was shocked by what I learned when doing the research to write my book about antidepressants: “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!” – the first book on the market discussing the adverse effects, physical as well as psychiatric, on the SSRI antidepressants. I would think that anyone taking one of these drugs would really want to know this about the history of Eli Lilly and how Prozac was born and brought to us which literally opened the SSRI/SNRI antidepressant Pandora’s Box we are all now working so hard to close shut in order to stop the suffering.

First: Prozac’s Approval Was Bought!!

Meet Dr. John Virapen – The Man Who BOUGHT Prozac’s Approval “I indirectly contributed to the death of . . . people, whose shadows now haunt me.” 

Yes, I did say “BOUGHT” the approval for Prozac! It was a bribe to the man in charge of drug approvals in Sweden. Once the managing director for Eli Lilly in Sweden he now wants “to see chemical medicine taken out of the equation.” John and I did our first show together in 2010 in Provo, Utah. I believe it was his first in America discussing how he, under direct orders from his superiors at Eli Lilly, bribed the approval for Prozac (You will not believe how little he says in this interview that he paid to get that approval!!) in Sweden thereby paving the way for the approval of all the Prozac clones that followed it – Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Sarafem, Stratera,  Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Remeron, Pristiq, Cymbalta, Brisdelle, etc.

Why Sweden? That was because Sweden was known for their strict approval guidelines for medications so that other countries would rush the drug through the approval process in their countries with little scrutiny. This is how the SSRI antidepressants were born as the designer drugs in our world which now bring in $11 Billion annually.

If anyone really thought Prozac’s approval had anything to do with any benefit the drug might have or that the benefits were backed by scientific research then here is their wake up call! The next time anyone attempts to defend an antidepressant and states that any of these antidepressants are helping patients please share this post with them so that they learn the truth about these drugs and their birth!!! In doing that PLEASE share with them the WITHDRAWAL WARNING posted below! If you do not know what you are doing in withdrawal it can be the most dangerous period of taking an antidepressant and tragically MOST doctors remain unaware of that fact!

Eli Lilly Developed LSD For The CIA’s Mind Control Program

Eli Lilly is also the developer and held the patent on the synthetic version of LSD which they developed for the CIA to use for mind control – it was the CIA’s drug of choice for that purpose. So much so that the CIA took 80% of their initial budget to buy up all the LSD they could find.

LSD was originally introduced by Sandoz in Switzerland as a way to chemically induce insanity. Of course there were few who lined up to take the drug knowing that, but when Lilly developed their synthetic version of LSD they also developed a whole new marketing plan for it. The world would soon hear that this new wonder drug was going to cure mental illness, cure alcoholism and aid in psychoanalysis! Clearly Lilly understood that it’s all in the marketing!!

The following is taken from the 1994 edition of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! There has since been a 2001 and 2014 edition of the book and I am still waiting for the world to catch up with all the research on these drugs that was in the first edition of the book! The book is availale on our website at www.drugawareness.org and can be obtained three ways: #1 download an ebook for $25 #2 order a DVD containing a triple combo of the ebook, the withdrawal CD, and a two hour lecture by me for $39 #3 order a month long membership at drugawareness.org for $30 which gives access to the ebook, the withdrawal CD and ALL 7 DVDs for a month (a $113 value) plus dozens of radio shows done over the past 25 years with multiple in depth 3 & 4 hour long interviews.

LSD Was Banned So CIA Turned To Pharma For A Replacement

Allow me to pick out the most shocking paragraph in this section in case you do not have the time to read the entire excerpt right now:

“Even though secret operations ended in 1958, the CIA made it clear [when LSD was banned by Congress in 1966] that they would continue to keep a close eye on contemporary research by the pharmaceutical companies as they proceeded with their research for a sort of behavior-changing drug – one to fit their specifications for mind control which might be marketed for use in psychoanalysis.

“Apparently they retained a hope that the pharmaceutical companies might yet find a drug to fit their specifications for a mind control agent through research in psychiatric drug treatments. Their suggestion that they would keep a close eye on the progress of the commercial interests should have been quite an incentive for any aggressive profit seeking pharmaceutical firm. How many of the psychoactive drugs presently on the market are there as a result of this hope of landing a government contract?

“Knowing the history of these drugs makes it difficult, if not just plain insane, to trust the pharmaceutical companies!”

Only a Coincidence That Lilly Gave Us LSD & Prozac?

Is it only a coincidence that the same company who supplied the CIA with LSD for mind control and patented and planned to market LSD as a cure for mental illness would be the same company to introduce the SSRI antidepressants to the market two decades later after the CIA made it very clear that they would continue looking for a drug similar to the one Lilly had developed for them – especially when these drugs produce a gradual LSD effect by increasing serotonin? I say gradual because when LSD goes into the brain it reads it as a flood of serotonin into the brain because LSD mimics serotonin to produce its hallucinogenic effects. Rather than flooding the brain with serotonin the SSRIs and SNRIs increase serotonin gradually so that it becomes more confusing to the user and the observer that this chemically-induced mental illness/psychosis is actually a drug effect.

Here is the full book excerpt from the Introductory Chapter to Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! titled Legal vs. Illegal Drugs A Broken Record Of History Repeating Itself …Over…And Over…And Over Again:

“The CIA had a real heyday with LSD research. In 1953, as they turned a hopeful eye to LSD, their secret project, focusing on chemical warfare and mind control, MK-ULTRA, was born – a project which would not be known to the public for many years to come. They were initially funded $300,000 for investigation of several drugs from cocaine to nicotine. The Agency considered LSD to be of such promise that in November, 1953 they sent two men with a black bag containing $240,000 (80% of their funds) in cash to Switzerland to buy up Sandoz’s entire supply of LSD. They were authorized to purchase an unbelievable amount of 10 kilos – 100 million doses. Much to their surprise they discovered that Sandoz’s total output of LSD since its discovery in 1943 was only forty grams, not quite two ounces. After negotiations Sandoz agreed to supply the CIA with 100 grams of LSD every week and also to notify them of anyone else who was ordering the drug.

The CIA then turned to Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac (who had previously introduced Heroin and Methadone in their products list) as a domestic source for LSD. They proposed that Lilly develop a synthetic LSD since the natural source of LSD, ergot fungus, was difficult to cultivate.

A company memo dated October 26, 1954 by Eli Lilly to then CIA head Allen Dulles announced that they had been able to bypass the need for ergot fungus in processing the drug and had come up with an LSD made solely from synthetic sources. They went on to suggest that with this breakthrough in mass production that “in a matter of months LSD would be available in tonnage quantities.” Lilly also went on to state that they were continuing their research to develop a “covert use” of LSD. (ACID DREAMS) The following December LOOK magazine reported that LSD “may actually help psychiatrists clear up mental illness.” It was also promoted as a cure for alcoholism and as an “aid in facilitating psychoanalysis”. In fact, the LSD advertising campaign now has an all too familiar ring as we recognize many of the same claims Lilly has been making for Prozac over the last six years.

The MERCK DIRECTORY lists Lilly as obtaining two patents on LSD just two months after the LOOK article hit the press. Lilly offered to supply unlimited amounts of LSD to the CIA and as the memo to Agency head, Allen Dulles, pointed out, this “meant that LSD could finally be taken seriously as a chemical warfare agent.”

Next the CIA turned to the psychological community, particularly those who were already investigating LSD’s relation to mental illness, to help them with their research. “Most were eager to help, provided the Agency picked up the tab. They had few moral qualms: if the CIA wanted to finance basic research in an area ignored by traditional organizations like the National Institute of Mental Health, where was the problem?” (STORMING HEAVEN, LSD AND THE AMERICAN DREAM, p. 81)

Their fronts were the Josiah Macy Foundation and the Geschickter Fund for Medical Research. They paid out as much as $40,000 per year for research at Mass. Mental Health. Harold Abramson in New York received $85,000 for his research project. Others included Carl Pfeiffer at the University of Illinois, and Harold Hodge at the University of Rochester. As reported by Dr. Robert F. Ulrich and Dr. Bernard M. Patten at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (1990), in Miami, Florida, the men hired to carry out this “morally questionable research” were given government grants to do so – our tax dollars at work.

The CIA had trouble obtaining subjects for their research so they turned to George Hunter White. He referred to the drug as “Stormy” to describe the unpredictably variable effects of LSD. During the day White was busily engaged tracking down drug pushers, yet as the sun went down he became the pusher. White employed prostitutes for a series of experiments from coast to coast. April 13, 1953, a brothel operation, dubbed “Midnight Climax”, was born. They disguised their “laboratory” as a bordello where the unsuspecting “clients” were brought in, secretly dosed with LSD and then their behavior was observed behind a two-way mirror.

Just as the Nazi doctors in Dachau preyed on the helpless, the CIA searched for subjects who were unable to resist. They used prisoners, mental patients, sexual deviants, the terminally ill, foreigners and ethnic minorities. The Addiction Research Center of the US Public Health Service Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky was a place for heroin addicts to kick their habit. It was also one of fifteen penal and mental institutions the CIA used as a supply of guinea pigs for its covert drug research.

They worked hand in hand with the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH). “When the CIA came across a new drug (usually supplied by American pharmaceutical firms) that needed testing, they frequently sent it over to their chief doctor at Lexington, where an ample supply of captive guinea pigs was readily available.” (ACID DREAMS , p. 24) It has since been disclosed that by the mid 60’s 1500 unsuspecting military personnel were also used as guinea pigs in LSD research. Some have filed suits against the government for damages.

Edgewood Arsenal, headquarters of the Army Chemical Corps., had for twenty years employed Nazi scientists on their staff. These scientists had been brought to the US after World War II through a program designed to utilize the skills of German researchers and technicians called Project Paperclip where 1600 Nazi scientists were brought here to America to continue their research they were conducting in the German concentration camps. They had employed at least eight Nazi scientists who were involved in administering psychoactive chemicals to soldiers. “No avenue of experimentation was ignored and no population ruled out as being unfit to act as experimental guinea pigs. Men, women, children, prisoners, mental patients, criminal sexual-psychopaths, schizophrenics, the elderly, and even terminally ill cancer patients were all used to perfect for the CIA the techniques of total control of the mind.” (THE MIND MANIPULATORS, p. 151)

“Within the CIA itself, Gottlieb [the agent in charge of chemical experimentation], White and his associates were taking LSD regularly, tripping at the office, at Agency parties, measuring their mental equilibrium against those of their colleagues. Turn your back in the morning and some wiseacre would slip a few micrograms into your coffee. It was a game played with the most exalted of weapons, the mind, and sometimes embarrassing things happened. Case-hardened spooks would break down crying or go all gooey about the ‘brotherhood of man’. Once or twice things went really awry, with paranoid agents escaping into the bustle of downtown Washington, their anxious colleagues in hot pursuit. After one spectacular chase the quarry was finally run to ground in Virginia, where they found him crouched under a fountain, babbling about those ‘terrible monster(s) with fantastic eyes’ that had pursued him across Washington. Indeed every car he met had sent a jolt of terror through his body.” ( STORMING HEAVEN – LSD AND THE AMERICAN DREAM, p. 82)

Although records indicate that as early as 1953 the ridiculously dangerous drug-induced antics of the CIA turned deadly, they did not cease their LSD “research” until 1958. The deadly 1953 incident was the case of Dr. Frank Olsen, an army doctor who specialized in designing chemical warfare projects like lipstick that would kill the minute it touched the skin, deadly deodorants, etc. It was decided that he would make a good candidate for LSD experimentation. Two days after unknowingly ingesting LSD at a MK-ULTRA party where he drank punch which had been secretly spiked with the drug, he believed he was going insane and committed suicide by jumping to his death from a New York hotel window.

It was not until years later that the truth came out and in 1979, twenty-six years after his death, his widow was finally awarded $750,000 in connection with her husband’s death by the U.S. government. So with our money these men were paid their salaries, they used our money to pay for the LSD and the “research,” they used us as uninformed guinea pigs and then they had us pay for the damages. They certainly knew how to add insult to injury.

Even though secret operations ended in 1958, the CIA made it clear that they would continue to keep a close eye on contemporary research by the pharmaceutical companies as they proceeded with their research for a sort of behavior – changing drug – one to fit their specifications for mind control which might be marketed for use in psychoanalysis. Apparently they retained a hope that the pharmaceutical companies might yet find a drug to fit their specifications through research in psychiatric drug treatments. Their suggestion that they would keep a close eye on the progress of the commercial interests should have been quite an incentive for any aggressive profit seeking company. How many of the psychoactive drugs presently on the market are there as a result of this hope of landing a government contract? Knowing the history of these drugs makes it difficult, if not just plain insane, to trust the pharmaceutical companies!

When the CIA’s Inspector General analyzed the ethics of MK-ULTRA in 1963 with such morally questionable projects as Midnight Climax, he was more concerned with the public finding out about the project rather than the fact that citizens were being subjected unknowingly to a test of behavior altering drugs! He stated that he feared that public knowledge of this information would ruin the reputations of not only the Agency and their agents, but also put the reputations of the professional researchers in jeopardy. He apparently did not realize that the activities of those individuals had already ruined their reputations and his concern was an afterthought. In light of this information about the CIA and its repulsive beginnings is it any wonder that President Kennedy had called for the dismantling of the CIA just before his assassination?

To demonstrate the controversy surrounding the use of LSD in this country, at the same time that the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE called for an end to all research with LSD, what should have been the most unlikely organization of all, the National Institute of Mental Health was funding 33 LSD projects at the cost of $1.7 million in tax dollars.

How long was it before the general public woke up to the psychedelic nightmare they had begun to experience with LSD? By mid 1966 there where three Congressional subcommittees conducting hearings on LSD, the Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee; the Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Relations of the House Government Operations Committee, and the Subcommittee on Executive Reorganization of the Senate Subcommittee on Government Operations. In October of 1966 possession of LSD became illegal in every state in this country.

“Crazy faith in better living through chemistry” A large portion of this information on the CIA and LSD was reported at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in 1990 by Drs. Robert F Ulrich and Bernard M. Patten in a presentation entitled, ” The Rise, Decline, and Fall of LSD .” LSD’s developer was Albert Hofmann. Drs. Ulrich and Patten related that, “Hofmann, himself suspects that the materialistic American life-style and resultant feelings of alienation from nature and lack of a meaningful philosophy of life drew people” to LSD. He “favored the potential uses of LSD; stating that if people learned to use the drug more wisely under the proper conditions, in medi cinal practice, and in association with meditation, it could become a ‘wonder child’.” (Keep in mind that this is a drug known to twist every perception we possess as humans and was first marketed by Sandoz in Switzerland to chemically induce psychosis.)

These two doctors reacted to Hofmann’s opinion by stating, “We now know that will never happen. LSD was part of an era of crazy faith in better living through chemistry. ”

Only three years after this presentation was made to the nation’s neurologists, this “crazy faith in better living through chemistry” they expected to never happen again is exactly what Dr. Peter Kramer’s book, LISTENING TO PROZAC, A Psychiatrist Explores Antidepressant Drugs and the Remaking of the Self , is rehashing for us. It would be interesting to learn how Drs. Ulrich and Patten feel about Dr. Kramer’s suggestion that we create a better living through the chemistry of Lilly’s latest “wonder drug,” Prozac. In fact it would be interesting to know if Dr. Kramer himself realizes that he is proposing once again Hoffman’s philosophies. As we proceed further and take a closer look at the similarities in action which these two drugs, Prozac and LSD, have within the brain, you will see why it is so curious that such similar arguments have been raised to justify the use of these two Lilly progenies.

Although Congress attempted to stop the spread of LSD after the CIA experimented with it, now, exactly fifty years after the discovery of LSD, the drug is making a comeback. It’s use is skyrocketing among young people. Among young adults, about one of 10 has experimented with LSD. According to Dr. Henry Abraham, director of psychiatric research at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Boston, “Use of LSD is really like playing Russian roulette with chemicals,” Abraham said. “You can spin the chamber and maybe five times you get away with it. Maybe the sixth time you blow your brains out. Instead of bullets, they are using drugs. God bless ’em.”

What debt we owe to those who introduced us to the wonders of LSD. The pharmaceuticals have given us one dangerous and highly addictive psychoactive prescription drug after another: heroin, methadone, cocaine, LSD, the amphetamines and methamphetamines, steroids, PCP, Quaaludes, Extasy, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on and on and has not stopped yet. Once these drugs have been released to the public for medicinal purposes, how do we ever control their use? Education as to their effects appears to be our only hope. If we can understand what we are doing to ourselves and the cost involved to each of us personally and then to society as a whole, perhaps we will see the insanity behind our reaching out so rapidly and with such trust, devouring each new drug as fast as they offer one more. This memory of past mistakes with these previous drugs, which time and experience have proven to be extremely dangerous, should warn us of impending problems in the future and instill a far more cautious approach to our use of prescription drugs, especially new ones. Learning from past mistakes is one of our most important reasons for the keeping of records and studying history, because learning from the mistakes of others is far less painful than learning from one’s own mistakes.

Yet have we really learned anything from these devastatingly disastrous mistakes in our past with such seriously mind-altering, highly addictive drugs – drugs which in the beginning were thought to be “safe”? How long can it take us to learn that once out there it takes lots of time and red tape to remove them from the market? And even after they are removed, stopping their illegal use once a large population has become addicted to them is next to impossible. Although these drugs have caused some of the most terribly violent and destructive behavior known to man, it does not appear to be the case that we have learned our lesson on drugs and their effects as yet. We jump to try all the new ones as they are candy coated and dangled in front of us on our television sets, in magazines, in newspapers, etc., etc., yes, even by the doctors we are trusting with our lives.”

ANN BLAKE-TRACY, UTAH LECTURE

Last August I spoke at the summit for the Independent American Party in Saint George, Utah and they have asked once again that I present at their Summit Thursday, July 2, in Orem, Utah. Some of the other speakers last August will also be speaking again at this summit: #1 My good friend Sheriff Richard Mack who joined us in testifying before the FDA in 2004 when we were able to get the Black Box Warning on all antidepressants #2 G Edward Griffin, author of Creature From Jeckyll Island, which if you have not yet read, you should. It will help you to understand much more about how and why we are caught up in this massive drug culture.

Anyone wishing to attend is welcome. Of course I will be addressing all of the latest news in this area as well as giving a brief overview of the underlying problems with these drugs we call antidepressants. As I will be presenting during the lunch break I do hope that everyone is able to keep their lunch down considering my subject. 🙂

Editor of Lancet: Medical Research is Unreliable at Best or Completely Fraudulent

Richard-Horton-Lancet

Richard Horton, Editor of Lancet

A shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, is saying that medical research is UNRELIABLE AT BEST IF NOT COMPLETELY BOGUS! Lancet editor, Richard Horton “… states bluntly that major pharmaceutical companies falsify or manipulate tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of their various drugs by taking samples too small to be statistically meaningful or hiring test labs or scientists where the lab or scientist has blatant conflicts of interest such as pleasing the drug company to get further grants.”

LIES, DAMN LIES, AND MEDICAL SCIENCE

This statement ties in perfectly with the article we have had on our website and been recommending for almost five years now from the World’s Leading Expert on Medical Research, Dr. John Ioanidis from Greece. Dr. Ioannidis told the Atlantic Monthly in an article titled “Lies, Damn Lies, and Medical Science” that 90% of medical research is tainted if not outright bogus due to influence from the industry. http://www.drugawareness.org/…/lies-damned-lies-and…http://nsnbc.me/2015/06/19/shocking-report-from-medical-insiders/

As I have stated since this earlier article this information should be headline news as it affects the lives and health of so many.

NOW A SHOCKING REPORT FROM EDITOR OF LANCET

Health SciencePublic HealthUSA

F. William Engdahl (NEO) : A shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of the Lancet recently published a statement declaring that a shocking amount of published research is unreliable at best, if not completely false, as in, fraudulent.

Richard Horton_The Lancet_USA_NEO_JUn 2015

Horton declared, “Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

To state the point in other words, Horton states bluntly that major pharmaceutical companies falsify or manipulate tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of their various drugs by taking samples too small to be statistically meaningful or hiring test labs or scientists where the lab or scientist has blatant conflicts of interest such as pleasing the drug company to get further grants. At least half of all such tests are worthless or worse he claims. As the drugs have a major effect on the health of millions of consumers, the manipulation amounts to criminal dereliction and malfeasance.

The drug industry-sponsored studies Horton refers to develop commercial drugs or vaccines to supposedly help people, used to train medical staff, to educate medical students and more.

Horton wrote his shocking comments after attending a symposium on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research at the Wellcome Trust in London. He noted the confidentiality or “Chatham House” rules where attendees are forbidden to name names: “’A lot of what is published is incorrect.’ I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides.”

Other voices

Dr. Marcia Angell is a physician and was longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), considered to be another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. Angell stated,

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal ofMedicine.”

Harvey Marcovitch, who has studied and written about the corruption of medical tests and publication in medical journals, writes, “studies showing positive outcomes for a drug or device under consideration are more likely to be published than ‘negative’ studies; editors are partly to blame for this but so are commercial sponsors, whose methodologically well-conducted studies with unfavorable results tended not to see the light of day…”

At the University of British Columbia’s Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Dr Lucija Tomljenovic obtained documents that showed that, “vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. This is scientific fraud, and their complicity suggests that this practice continues to this day.”

Lancet’s Dr. Horton concludes, “Those who have the power to act seem to think somebody else should act first. And every positive action (eg, funding well-powered replications) has a counter-argument (science will become less creative). The good news is that science is beginning to take some of its worst failings very seriously. The bad news is that nobody is ready to take the first step to clean up the system.

Corruption of the medical industry worldwide is a huge issue, perhaps more dangerous than the threat of all wars combined. Do we have such hypnosis and blind faith in our doctors simply because of their white coats that we believe they are infallible? And, in turn, do they have such blind faith in the medical journals recommending a given new wonder medicine or vaccine that they rush to give the drugs or vaccines without considering these deeper issues?

F. William Engdahl is strategic risk consultant and lecturer, he holds a degree in politics from Princeton University and is a best-selling author on oil and geopolitics, exclusively for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook”.

Perhaps even more interesting is this comment in the Lancet about this speech:

“A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in “purdah”—a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government’s payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.

Learn What is in Vaccines!! Very FUNNY Section You Must Not Miss!!!

baby vaccine

Do you know what is in vaccines?

Why 38 shots before 1 1/2 years when as kids we only got 8 total?

If you want one of the best laughs ever but do not want to hear doctors talk about how they learned what was in vaccines, you MUST advance to 11:20 for the “Eye on the Flu Vaccine” report! TOO FUNNY!!!! And it is only about 3 minutes long. Learn what is in vaccines.

There are 38 vaccines required now by age 1 1/2 where we only got about eight total as kids! Yet I still wonder if my polio vaccine was a huge part of the reason I got cancer at such an early age since the researchers have admitted that they included the cancer virus, AIDs and SV40 in the polio vaccine. See that video below.

Hep B Vaccine

Great questions asked which I have had about the HepB vaccine from the beginning and an eye opening Congressional Hearing on the safety and Pharma influence. Excellent! Why do we give Hep B vaccines to babies when it comes from sexual contact or IV drug use?!!! How many babies do you know who have been having sex and using drugs while still in the womb?

HPV Vaccine

And the HPV vaccine being given to all young women has always scared me to death! It is so incredibly dangerous and really frightening due to the very serious adverse reactions including death! Click this link to view the video and get the laugh on that Eye on the Flu Vaccine section! LOL!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQsVTlMsQrI

Huge Increase in Autism – Vaccines & Antidepressants

Much of the Autism has been attributed to vaccines because that is the main difference in those being diagnosed with Autism – a huge increase in the numbers and frequency of vaccines given. But what is being ignored or given very little attention in this huge increase in Autism is the advent of the SSRI antidepressants and the large number of young mothers being encouraged to take them during pregnancy. The rate for Autism among those whose mother’s took antidepressants during pregnancy has been found to be three to four times higher than normal.

Merck’s Polio Vaccine Included Cancer, SV40 and AIDS

Video Admission by Dr Maurice Hilleman

Also not addressed in this whole debate is just what diseases may be included in those vaccines which we are not yet aware of? For instance, how many got either AIDS or cancer from their polio vaccines. Has anyone bothered to do any research on that? Just how many have died over the past seven plus decades from cancer or AIDS which came from their polio vaccines given to them as children?

You mean you did not know that those of us who got polio vaccines as children were exposed to cancer virus and AIDS from the vaccine? Well, maybe that is because if you knew it just might cut into their profits and overload them with lawsuits. This video will allow you to see the leading scientist behind the polio vaccine not only admit this, but say that once the company discovered the mistake they certainly did not make any public announcements about it. Watch these top scientists laugh about how they made the mistake of including those viruses from the green monkey in the polio vaccine. Just another big WHOOPS! in medicine and life goes on? Click link to see video:

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uGWut6IRfA&feature=youtu.be]

So should we not be asking what all we might find lurking in our latest vaccines which may not be made known to us for years to come? As you listen to these people discuss this tragic mistake, which must have resulted in many deaths and much pain and suffering, and then hear them joke about it, I would hope it makes your blood boil. This will give you a general idea of how these scientists think as they use us all as guinea pigs with these various chemicals and potions. About this tragic mistake, when asked if the public was informed, this scientist said that obviously we do not do a press release when something like this happens. Of course they don’t! That is so that profits are protected and lawsuits for damages are greatly avoided.

Are We All Just Guinea Pigs?

This all reminds me of the statement by Dr. Solomon Snyder about how scientists love LSD because? Not because it had created any great beneficial effect for mankind, but because LSD had taught scientists so much about how the human brain functions in producing insanity! How many knew they were being used to teach scientists so much about the human brain? Absolutely no concern from these scientists about the lives destroyed by this drug! That was even though they knew LSD was initially introduced via Sandoz Pharmaceutical in Switzerland as a way to chemically induce insanity so that science could learn the cause of insanity. That was almost a decade and a half before Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac, patented the synthetic version of LSD in 1956 which was then touted as a means to cure mental illness!!!! Amazing how marketing can change the color of anything from black to white, isn’t it?! And just how much are these infomercials we call “medical research” changing black to white for us today? Considering how marketing has been perfected and the public absolutely saturated with it over the past six decades since then??? Our society is clearly ripe for anything marketing can bring us!

FDA Recommends Approval of Female Version of Viagra, Addyi

FDA - drugs

FDA Recommends 18 to 6 to Approve Female Viagra, “Addyi”

The FDA has long proven it is the biggest, sickest, most tragic joke on the planet! It appears they will approve anything the drug companies encourage them to approve! After all most in the FDA go to work for pharmaceutical firms once they leave the FDA and who wants to have their future employer upset with them?

Now with this recommended approval of the female version of viagra and the full approval right around the corner on this drugs, all the woman who have no sexual desire left after burnout from their antidepressants can add this drug to the mix of drugs they are already on to see how many of them this new combo of meds will kill!

We now have besides this new one, Viagra, Cialis, Testosterone (Hitler gave that to his troops to make the lean, mean killing machines – the problem is it makes the brain lean as well!), etc.

Who would have ever dreamed that something similar to what we heard whispered about as kids (Spanish Fly) would actually be approved as “medicine” today! Of course we never really knew anything about Spanish Fly so I just did a Google search on it. Take a look at this info on and see if it does not sound similar to the warnings on common commercials we hear regularly on these sexual stimulant drugs:

SPANISH FLY: http://io9.com/5983275/why-spanish-fly-only-works-on-men–and-is-deadly

“Cantharidin’s [Spanish Fly] prowess as an irritant had to be known by anyone… Ingestion, and even digestion, does not diminish its ability to irritate. As it makes its way out of the body, it irritates the lining of the urethra. In women, the irritation is externally unnoticeable. In men, it causes a great deal of swelling in the area. This translates into a long-lasting erection. Most likely, it is not a pleasant erection, [If you have heard of but that didn’t stop people in antiquity from giving small doses of cantharidin to bridegrooms, or taking a dose themselves in preparation for a special night. The poet and philosopher, Lucretius, is rumored to have died from an overdose of cantharidin from the meloid beetle.

Death is the down side of genuine spanish fly, and the main reason it’s much better to be sold a fraudulent dose than a genuine one. Even a minor overdose can lead to erections long enough to need medical intervention. [Priaprism*] Many more than that and people exhibit extreme abdominal pain, respiratory and heart problems, renal failure, bloody urine, convulsions, coma, and death.

MAYO CLINIC: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/priapism/basics/causes/con-20029378

*According to the Mayo Clinic Priapism – prolonged and painful erection, is a known side effect of a number of drugs including all of these ED drugs, antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, blood thinners, and alcohol.

NPR: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/06/04/411260331/advisers-to-fda-consider-controversial-drug-to-boost-female-libido

According to an NPR special this female Viagra drug, called Addyi, is a mind altering drug that shifts the balance of three key brain chemicals, increasing dopamine and norepinephrine and decreasing serotonin….whatever that means since they never seem to say if they mean any of these drugs is increasing the neurotransmitter itself or the metabolism of that neurotransmitter – totally opposite effects.

For instance with antidepressants they tell you the drugs increase serotonin yet lead you to believe you are getting the results of increasing serotonin metabolism. But according to medical research by increasing serotonin you can expect the opposite effect of what they are telling you to expect from these drugs. Research at the University of Southern California by Dr. Jean Chen Shih indicates the serious dangers of excess serotonin in their 1996 research paper: “Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence–An Excess Of Serotonin, A Chemical That Helps Regulate Mood And Mental Health, Causes Mayhem” (http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/)

Senator Grassley’s Probe Discovered NAMI Is Funded 81% by Pharmaceuticals

nami-logo

Anyone having anything to do with NAMI needs to know this about their history. Beware of any and all groups claiming to offer “support” for those suffering mental illness. You need to know who is behind the group and what they are really about. I have more information on yet another suicide support group I will be sending out next.

How interesting to read NAMI’s alleged mission statement after it was just recommended as a source for help for anyone suffering as this veteran who just committed a double murder-suicide in Salt Lake City … very different mission than what Senator Charles Grassley’s Senate probe found as reported by the New York Times October 21, 2009. He found that 81% of their funding comes from drug companies…$23 Million just between 2006 – 2008.

Then the following day CBS News suggested Senator Grassley should look at a lawsuit filed against Pfizer by a former pharmaceutical rep which “alleges that Pfizer turned NAMI into a “Trojan Horse” to promote the antipsychotic drug Geodon for off-label use in children,”…”NAMI’s web site was used to promote off-label use of Geodon in kids, and NAMI’s former president, James McNulty, was on Pfizer’s payroll, the suit alleges.”

It amazes me that so few are aware of any of this about NAMI when they claim to be there for patients.
