At age 72, Stephen Jepson is living proof of his philosophy of lifetime fitness called Never Leave the Playground. Become smarter & sharper now.

THIS IS AMAZING AND IT WORKS!!!!!

He rides a unicycle, juggles while balancing on a bongo board, throws knives and plays jacks with both hands, walks a tightrope, swam across Iowa’s Spirit Lake at age 66, and has won over 80 gold medals in swimming since age 65. And more. Much more.

He knows the secret is to “just keep moving” through constant play, not exercise. He’s developed toys for all ages and degrees of physical fitness to use throughout our daily lives so we never have to leave the playground no matter where we are or what we’re doing.

No matter how impaired the body has become through neglect or disease or aging, consistent movement is imperative to regain and maintain balance, stability, coordination and growth. He calls it “age proofing the brain and body,” and it can begin at any age or any condition of the body.

AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR DRUG IS THE ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTIC ABILIFY

Martha Rosenberg

Martha Rosenberg

Meet one of our newest members to join our International Coalition For Drug Awareness Facebook group – investigative reporter Martha Rosenberg.

For those of you new to this battle and unaware of the history of this battle or those who have been involved since the beginning to pave the way you need to know that Martha is an incredible reporter who has been writing about the antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics for many years now. In fact she has written some of the most hard hitting articles on this issue! An example of a recent one is posted below. She has been published widely.

We want to welcome her and thank her publicly for her tireless work in educating the public about these very dangerous drugs!

The following article was emailed to me but originally appeared in Alternet. (Please always keep in mind in learning about the atypical antipsychotics that they too are serotonergic drugs and technically should NOT be used with an antidepressant even though Abilify promotes itself as an add-on drug to antidepressant treatment!!!!!) I would encourage all of you to Google Martha Rosenberg and read and share her information far and wide!

THE MOST POPULAR DRUG IN AMERICA IS AN ANTIPSYCHOTIC — AND NO ONE REALLY KNOWS HOW IT WORKS

MARTHA ROSENBERG, ALTERNET
16 NOV 2014 AT 20:58 ET

Does anyone remember Thorazine? It was an antipsychotic given to mentally ill people, often in institutions, that was so sedating, it gave rise to the term “Thorazine shuffle.” Ads for Thorazine in medical journals, before drugs were advertised directly to patients, showed Aunt Hattie in a hospital gown, zoned out but causing no trouble to herself or anyone else. No wonder Thorazine and related drugs Haldol, Mellaril and Stelazine were called chemical straitjackets.

But Thorazine and similar drugs became close to obsolete in 1993 when a second generation of antipsychotics which included Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Geodon and Abilify came online. Called “atypical” antipsychotics, the drugs seemed to have fewer side effects than their predecessors like dry mouth, constipation and the stigmatizing and permanent facial tics known as TD or tardive dyskinesia. (In actuality, they were similar.) More importantly, the drugs were obscenely expensive: 100 tablets of Seroquel cost as much as $2,000, Zyprexa, $1,680 and Abilify $1,644.

One drug that is a close cousin of Thorazine, Abilify, is currently the top-selling of all prescription drugs in the U.S. marketed as a supplement to antidepressant drugs, reports the Daily Beast. Not only is it amazing that an antipsychotic is outselling all other drugs, no one even knows how it works to relieve depression, writes Jay Michaelson. The standardized United States Product Insert says Abilify’s method of action is “unknown” but it likely “balances” brain’s neurotransmitters. But critics say antipsychotics don’t treat anything at all, but zone people out and produce oblivion. They also say there is a concerning rise in the prescription of antipsychotics for routine complaints like insomnia.

They are right. With new names and prices and despite their unknown methods of action, Pharma marketers have devised ways to market drugs like Abilify to the whole population, not just people with severe mental illness. Only one percent of the population, after all, has schizophrenia and only 2.5 percent has bipolar disorder. Thanks to these marketing ploys, Risperdal was the seventh best-selling drug in the world until it went off patent and Abilify currently rules.

Here are some of the ways Big Pharma made antipsychotics everyday drugs.

Approval Creep

Everyone has heard of “mission creep.” In the pharmaceutical world, approval creep means getting the FDA to approve a drug for one thing and pushing a lot of other drug approvals through on the coattails of the first one. Though the atypical antipsychotics were originally drugs for schizophrenia, soon there was a dazzling array of new uses.

Seroquel was first approved in 1997 for schizophrenia but subsequently approved for bipolar disorder, psychiatric conditions in children and finally as an add-on drug for depression like Abilify. The depression “market” is so huge, Seroquel’s last approval allowed the former schizophrenia drug to make $5.3 billion a year before it went off patent. But before the add-on approval, AstraZeneca, which makes Seroquel, ran a sleazy campaign to convince depressed people they were really “bipolar.” Ads showed an enraged woman screaming into the phone, her face contorted, her teeth clenched. Is this you, asked the ads? Your depression may really be bipolar disorder, warned the ad.

Sometimes the indication creep is under the radar. After heated FDA hearings in 2009 about extending Zyprexa, Seroquel and Geodon uses for kids–Pfizer and AstraZeneca slides showed that kids died in clinical trials–the uses were added by the FDA but never announced. They were slipped into the record right before Christmas, when no news breaks, and recorded as “label changes.” Sneaky.

And there is another “creep” which is also under the radar: “warning creep.” As atypical antipsychotics have gone into wide use in the population, more risks have surfaced. Labels now warn against death-associated risks in the elderly, children and people with depression but you have to really read the fine print. (Atypical antipsychotics are so dangerous in the elderly with dementia, at least 15,000 die in nursing homes from them each year, charged FDA drug reviewer David Graham in congressional testimony.) The Seroquel label now warns against cardiovascular risks, which the FDA denied until the drug was almost off patent.

Dosing Children

Perhaps no drugs but ADHD medications have been so widely used and often abused in children as atypical antipsychotics. Atypical antipsychotics are known to “improve” behavior in problem children across a broad range of diagnoses but at a huge price: A National Institute of Mental Health study of 119 children ages 8 to 19 found Risperdal and Zyprexa caused such obesity a safety panel ordered the children off the drugs.

In only eight weeks, kids on Risperdal gained nine pounds and kids on Zyprexa gained 13 pounds. “Kids at school were making fun of me,” said one study participant who put on 35 pounds while taking Risperdal.

Just like the elderly in state care, poor children on Medicaid are tempting targets for Big Pharma and sleazy operators because they do not make their own medication decisions. In 2008, the state ofTexas charged Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen with defrauding the state of millions with “a sophisticated and fraudulent marketing scheme,” to “secure a spot for the drug, Risperdal, on the state’s Medicaid preferred drug list and on controversial medical protocols that determine which drugs are given to adults and children in state custody.”

Many other states have brought legal action against Big Pharma including compelling drug makers to pay for the extreme side effects that develop with the drugs: massive weight gain, blood sugar changes leading to diabetes and cholesterol problems.

Add-On Conditions

It’s called polypharmacy and it is increasingly popular: Prescribing several drugs, often as a cocktail, that are supposed to do more than the drugs do alone. Big Pharma likes polypharmacy for two obvious reasons: drug sales are tripled or quadrupled—and it’s not possible to know if the drugs are working. The problems with polypharmacy parallel its “benefits.” The person can’t know which, if any, of the drugs are working so they take them all. By the time someone is on four or more psychiatric drugs, there is a good chance they are on a government program and we are paying. There is also a good chance the person is on the drugs for life, because withdrawal reactions make them think there really is something wrong with them and it is hard to quit the drugs.

Into this lucrative merchandising model came the idea of “add-on” medications and “treatment-resistant depression.” When someone’s antidepressant didn’t work, Pharma marketers began floating the idea that it wasn’t that the drugs didn’t work; it wasn’t that the person wasn’t depressed to begin with but had real life, job and family problems—it was “treatment-resistant depression.” The person needed to add a second or third drug to their antidepressant, such as Seroquel or Abilify. Ka-ching.

Lawsuits Don’t Stop Unethical Marketing

Just as Big Pharma has camped out in Medicare and Medicaid, living on our tax dollars while fleeing to England so it doesn’t have to pay taxes, Pharma has also camped out in the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs. Arguably, no drugs have been as good for Big Pharma as atypical antipsychotics within the military. In 2009, the Pentagon spent $8.6 million on Seroquel and VA spent $125.4 million—almost $30 million more than is spent on a F/A-18 Hornet.

Risperdal was even bigger in the military. Over a period of nine years, VA spent $717 million on its generic, risperidone, to treat PTSD in troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Yet not only was risperidone not approved for PTSD, it didn’t even work. A 2011 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found the drug worked no better than placebo and the money was totally wasted.

In the last few years, the makers of Risperdal, Seroquel and Zyprexa have all settled suits claiming illegal or fraudulent marketing. A year ago, Johnson & Johnson admitted mismarketing Risperdal in a $2.2 billion settlement. But the penalty is nothing compared with the $24.2 billion it made from selling Risperdal between 2003 to 2010 and shareholders didn’t blink. The truth is, there is too much money in hawking atypical antipsychotics to the general population for Pharma to quit.

Italy Warns Do Not Take Flu Shot & CDC Admits Shot Does Not Work

cdc2

Two and a half months ago I got the following information ready to send out to you and had not yet had a chance to send it due to my mother’s death, when the report from Italy came in…just over a week ago Italy banned the flu shots due to 9 deaths within 48 hours of getting the shot. http://experimentalvaccines.org/2014/11/28/italy-bans-flu-shot-9-dead/ There are now 13 dead as the death toll rises. Here is what I had ready to send out several months ago:

The CDC Recommends What?!!! Flu Shots For EVERYONE Over the Age of Six Months?!!!

The direct quote: “The CDC recommends everyone over the age of six months get the flu vaccine. Reactions are extremely rare and usually occur among individuals who are allergic to eggs.”

Can anyone spell e-u-t-h-a-n-a-s-i-a? I am not about to stand in that line for Dachau leading to the “showers” (gas chambers) to wait for my flu shot to be administered! How about when hell freezes over I will get my first flu shot ever????!!!!

Here is a case from last year of a young healthy young man who did not survive his flu shot here in the good old USA….

SUDDEN DEATH AFTER FLU SHOT OF LDS TEEN PREPARING FOR MISSION

chandler webb

CLICK LINK TO VIEW: http://www.insideedition.com/headlines/7411-did-a-flu-shot-lead-to-teens-sudden-death

 

NOW THIS WEEK ITALY WARNS: DO NOT TAKE FLU SHOT

Early this week the Italian government launched an investigation after about a dozen people died within 48 hours after getting the flu shot. Their national health agency issued an immediate warning, saying DO NOT take the vaccine.

NOW CDC ADMITS FLU SHOT DOES NOT WORK

And amazingly the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have admitted that this year’s flu vaccine does not work. The warning comes just before the busiest part of flu season, in January and February. But no refunds for patients or insurance companies who have already paid for flu shots this year.

But to save their good standing with Pharma the CDC says if you do come down with the flu, there’s a cure. It will just cost you more money. Those “cures” will come from pharma giants GlaxoSmithKline and Roche. CDC officials are urging doctors to prescribe two specific antiviral medications from these two companies for any patients who come in with flu symptoms.

The following video from my friend Gary Franchi of NextNewsNetwork, who is well aware of the dangers of antidepressants, reveals the shocking admission by the CDC that this year’s flu vaccine doesn’t work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6cVeHUvlmY#t=77

 

Earlier This Year the CDC Admitted Marketing Vaccines for Drug Makers!!!

Please Refer Back to My Post Earlier This Year Where The CDC Admitted Marketing Vaccines After a CDC Whistle Blower Revealed the Information: Vaccine Whistle Blower: CDC Caught in Billion-Dollar Scheme to Sell Vaccines: http://www.drugawareness.org/vaccine-whistle-blower-cdc-caught-in-billion-dollar-scheme-to-sell-vaccines/

CDC APPARENTLY DID NOT ADMIT INEFFECTIVENESS?????

Although there are now reports saying the CDC did not say the vaccine was not effective (would not want to violate their high paying kickback contracts for promoting vaccines they admitted to a few months ago????), here is another report:

Earlier this year (2014) the CDC published a report documenting an influenza outbreak which occurred among fully vaccinated navy personnel aboard the USS Ardent, a U.S. Navy minesweeper moored in San Diego, California while conducting training.

Surprisingly, the CDC admits this is a common occurrence:

The current U.S. Department of Defense influenza vaccination policy mandates that all uniformed personnel receive seasonal influenza vaccination, unless medically exempt, or face punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The policy specifically directs all Navy operational units to be at least 90% vaccinated. However, despite vaccination measures, influenza outbreaks can still occur in highly vaccinated military populations.

In the references section of the study, they list two other studies that showed the exact same thing happened in the past, in 2001 and 2009:

  • Earhart KE, Beadle C, Miller LK, et al. Outbreak of influenza in highly vaccinated crew of U.S. Navy ship. Emerg Infect Dis 2001;7:463–5.
  • Cosby MT, Pimental G, Nevin RL, et al. Outbreak of H3N2 Influenza at a US Military Base in Djibouti during the H1N1 pandemic of 2009. PLoS One 2013;7:e82089.

And here are a few points from Natural News on this issue as well as a link to an article they have on this:

* Flashback: Flu vaccines laboratory confirmed to contain crazy high concentrations of mercury

In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we’ve ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally.

* Doctors, pharmacists and mainstream media continue to lie about mercury in vaccines

* Insert admits “no controlled trials”

* No evidence of safety or effectiveness in pregnant women

* Never proven safe or effective in children, either

* Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”

* In addition to reports in clinical trials, the following adverse events have been identified during postapproval use of Flulaval…

vomiting
chest pain
allergic edema of the mouth
anaphylaxis
laryngitis
cullulitis
muscle weakness
arthritis
dizziness
paresthesia
tremor
somnolence
Guillian-Barre syndrome
convulsions / seizures
facial or cranial nerve paralysis
encephalopathy
limb paralysis
insomnia
dyspnea
sweating”

* If you take flu shots, you are being poisoned by quacks

Recover From Antidepressant Damage Faster & Live to a Ripe Old Age Yet Remain Youthful

Benefits of a Raw Vegan Diet

Most of you know that due to serious health issues early in my life I became Vegan in order to save my life and regain my health. It worked wonders and I have lived another 40 years I should not have had according to medical science.

In the beginning I knew the day would come that I would progess to an all raw food diet or at least an 80% raw diet after reading a simple statement that rang true to me, “Live food gives life while dead food breeds death.” Due to this antidepressant battle taking up the last 25 years of my life, unfortunately I did not make that change to raw food until January of this year. The changes in my health have been dramatic! How I wish I had made the change sooner!

Because I just experienced another birthday this past month I thought I should share with you a video I have not shared before in order for you to see for yourself the amazing benefits of providing live digestive enzymes through your diet – especially so after antidepressants have destroyed so many enzymes for you! No wonder those going to a raw food diet recover from the damaging effects of antidepressants faster than those who do not switch to raw food.

View video below – 70 year old woman appears 30!

Please click the link to view this video below and you will see what I mean. They say that seeing is believing and in this case you will clearly see what I mean by that! This woman is AMAZING and the difference between her – who has eaten a raw food diet for many years, and her husband who stuck with his standard American diet and his meat store will astound you!!! People mistake her for his granddaughter rather than his wife!

CLICK HERE: http://www.realfarmacy.com/70-year-old-looks-30-reveals-fountain-of-youth/

Now to give you an idea of how easy raw food is to make and serve and how delicious it is – because that was my thing, I had no idea where to begin – let me introduce you to my friends Ronnie and Minh as they show you how simple it is to make raw crackers full of live enzymes to make you healthy and strong again.

Antidepressants & Sleeping Pill That Could Turn You Into a Criminal

sleep driver

How Ambien or Antidepressants Can Make You a Criminal

This is an excellent article in the Daily Mail, but once again, even though they interviewed one of the experts who is well aware of this, they have left the antidepressants out of the conversation. I encourage you to read the article to learn more about who some of the high profile people are who have reported this REM Sleep reaction and what antidepressants can produce as well as Ambien. I always shutter when I see both prescribed together!

Ironically they have a video on alternative treatments for sleep. It started out great and had some good advice at the end yet the middle is nothing but promoting Benzos, Ambien and antidepressants which are the biggest CAUSE of insomnia on the planet!!! Go figure on that one! What can I say? They have bought up everyone everywhere to peddle their meds!

Here is my comment on the article:

“I have been testifying in these cases for about two and a half decades and gathering a database of thousands of cases. But I continue to wonder why antidepressants remain out of the news for causing this reaction as well and at a much higher rate. Antidepressants do more of these reactions than Ambien does. Dr. Mahowald’s associate, Dr. Carlos Schenck, has found that 86% of these kinds of cases involved patients who were taking an antidepressant.

Murder and suicide can both be the result of this reaction as well. I have a database of thousands of these cases at www.ssristories.NET and all of you who think you are doing well on your Ambien should note Dr. Mahowald’s statement where he warns that there is NO warning that this reaction is about to happen. They just come out of the blue. If you are very well educated about various reactions and watching extremely closely you might, just might, be able to predict it.

Mahowald and Schenck are two of the top researchers in the world on this very serious reaction best known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). There is an entire chapter in my book on SSRI antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare, which is devoted to this subject.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? People Being Pushed Into Path of Subway Train

subway killing

Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, Pushed in front of Subway Train

In the Bronx a man was pushed in the path of a subway train in front of his wife. There was no apparent reason for the attack. This was the fourth attack in the recent past like this. When we see these killings with no apparent motive, which is something that law enforcement have been puzzled about for about two decades now, it is very likely that they are cases of homicidal ideation from the use of antidepressants.

The side effect termed “homicidal ideation” means constant compulsive thoughts and actions of killing and the same ruminating thoughts of various methods of killing. The thoughts are of killing, not necessarily who or what, but just the compulsion to destroy anyone or anything.

Note this statement in the article below on this latest killing by pushing someone in front of a subway train which was said to be “an act that appeared unprovoked”

Three other cases in past two years

“There have been three other incidents in recent years that involved a person being pushed onto the tracks.

“In April 2013, a train ran over a man desperately clawing at a Manhattan subway platform after being pushed onto the tracks by a homeless suspect with whom he’d been arguing.

“In December 2012, another homeless man was arrested for pushing a Queens straphanger in front of a Times Square train that fatally crushed him.

“Later the same month, a mumbling woman pushed a man to his death in front of a subway train in Queens.”

Homeless Connection to Cases and to Antidepressants

Note how many of those committing these attacks were described as homeless or described as obviously suffering psychosis. Hopefully you are aware of how many of the homeless are in a homeless situation because of the use of and adverse effects of antidepressants and other psychiatric meds. The numbers are very high, yet our “benevolent” government and charity organizations are so helpful in continuing to supply their drugs for them as they remain seemingly oblivious to the fact that the drugs are the problem which led them to the situations they are in. Anyway my guess would be that we would find antidepressant use behind all of these incidents.

New York Subway Bombing Case

I do hope you are also aware of the case of Edward Leary, the New York City Subway bomber, who blew up the subway train he was on while on Prozac. He said it could not have been him who did this because he fell asleep on the subway before the explosion. Now if you have read the chapter in my book on the REM Sleep Disorder being caused mainly by the use of antidepressants (86%) in which patients act out their nightmares in a sleep state you would understand how significant his statement about falling asleep before the bombing was. He ran 2 miles after the explosion with his tennis shoes melted to his feet. He was also writing a book on the NY subway system because he was so completely fastenated by it. His brother in law headed the Bingham NY Police Department. Can you see from all this how blowing up the subway would fit as this man’s worst nightmare?

Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders

 

chronic stress

Antidepressant-induced Stress Can Produce

Mental Disorders and Brain Damage

A recent study in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress’s effect on microglial cells — immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons — can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia while another study out of the University of California demonstrates the same along with resulting in depression, suicide, ADHD, PTSD, Autism, brain damage and disrupts the balance and timing of communication in the brain.

When my book first went to press in 1994 I stressed this very issue pointing out Eli Lilly’s own studies demonstrating a doubling of cortisol, the marker for both stress and depression, with only one single dose of 30mg of Prozac administered! This fact went on the cover of my book as one of the most important things anyone should ever know about SSRI antidepressants. Then an entire chapter was included to discuss the damaging effects of cortisol, also referred to as the “death hormone.” The harmful effects of elevated cortisol have long been known to damage the brain as well as just about everything else in the body.

That should certainly help many of you suffering from the after effects of antidepressants to confirm what you are experiencing is the result of antidepressant use and to understand more about what you are dealing with as you work to repair that damage.

Additionally from this research we learn:

“In stress situations, the body readies itself for fight or flight, prepares itself for potential injuries, too,” lead researcher Dr. Astrid Friebe said in a statement. “What is certain is that microglial cells adapt to the new conditions, in a way. The more frequently they get triggered due to stress, the more they are inclined to remain in that mode. This is when microglial cells start to pose a danger to the brain.” ….

….A similar study conducted by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley also found that chronic stress can lead to changes in the brain that cause the development of a mental disorder. The research team focused on the reduction of neurons and generation of white matter that results from chronic stress. This increase of white matter, particularly in the hippocampus, disrupts the balance and timing of communication in the brain.”

Just out of curiosity one day (keep in mind this was before most of us realized we could just ask Google) I picked out a number for an endocrinologist in Salt Lake City, as if anyone should be aware of this important information an endocrinologist would be the one. I called to ask how long the human body could tolerate having the cortisol level doubled on a daily basis.

He gasped and said, “Oh you cannot do that to someone!”

I replied, “IF you could do that just how long could the human body tolerate that?”

He said, “A month, maybe two, three at the most. Why are you asking me this?”

I told him that is what one single 30mg dose of Prozac does.

His reply was, “Oh no! No! Prozac is a wonderful drug!”

He was completely unaware of this research done by the makers of the drug themselves because the study had been published in Italy, not the US, and therefore, the information was not required to be distributed to doctors in the United States. I gave him the reference to their study so that he could go look up for himself. This is one of the ways by which such mass ignorance of medications is generated….other than the fact that I have found far too many doctors do not bother to read research.

Vatican Launches Investigation into Psychiatric Drugging of Children

vatican

Vatican to Address Psychiatric Drugging of Children/Pregnant Women

An issue far too long ignored by all religions will be the subject of an upcoming Vatican Conference, “The Child as a Person and as a Patient: Therapeutic Approaches Compared.” The conference will discuss the harmful consequences of the overuse of prescription drugs for treating mental and emotional disorders in children, as well as pregnant mothers where children are exposed to these drugs in the womb. According to the Catholic News agency, the conference hopes to prove that “psychosocial options” are better than “psychotropic care.” Experts taking part in the conference also hope to show that the risks heavily outweigh the benefits of the drugs.

Six years in the making, the conference will focus on two main drug groups, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, known as SSRIs or antidepressants, and antipsychotics.

CHINA FINES GLAXO $500 MILLION FOR MASSIVE BRIBERY NETWORK

glaxo headquarters

BUT….WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO??????

GSK CAUGHT IN MASSIVE BRIBERY: (Thanks to Sarah Grace Wolfrom for giving us the most accurate translation yet of GSK which is: GSK = Greedy Sociopathic Killers )

In yet another demonstration to prove that the Mafia does not even begin to hold a candle to the pharmaceutical cartel, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline has recently been fined nearly $500 Million, for allegedly setting up a “massive bribery network” to get doctors and hospitals to use its products. Anyone surprised?

Some of those GSK products would be the antidepressants Paxil and Wellbutrin and Zyban the stop smoking med that is nothing more than Wellbutrin with a new name and Brisdelle which is Paxil with a new name prescribed for menopause.

Biggest Fine Ever Imposed in China

The fine was the biggest ever imposed by a Chinese court. Five former employees were sentenced to two to four years in jail, but ordered deported instead of imprisoned. The court gave Mark Reilly, former head of GSK Chinese operations, a three-year prison sentence with a four-year reprieve, which meant he is set to be deported instead of serving his time in a Chinese jail. His co-defendants received two to four years prison sentences with reprieves.

Reilly was accused of operating a “massive bribery network.” Police said it is believed Reilly authorized his salespeople to pay doctors, hospital officials and health institutions to use GSK’s products since 2009. They found that the company had funneled up to $488.8 Million to travel agencies to facilitate bribes to doctors and officials. The amount spent was the exact amount of the fine imposed upon them.

Now that is a LOT of money to use for bribes! Just think about what they must be making in profits if they are spending that much just for bribes! AMAZING!

Where Does the Money Go?

We have seen similar fines here in the United States. A few years ago Pfizer paid out a $500 Million fine for racketeering. But my question has always been in these big fines that are filed against these drug makers….Where does that money go?!

We all know who was damaged in this – the patients who were given the drugs. WHEN does someone pay them some of this money coming in on these huge fines to help them recover from the damages produced as a result of this bribery network?

PROZAC: Survivor Story by Jim Carrey

jim carrey2

Jim Carrey, Prozac Survivor

I am not sure how many of you are aware of how many celebrities have gone through what you are going through or have gone through. But this is one success story guaranteed to warm your heart and give you hope.

This is one great comedian that Pharma did not get with antidepressants! Tragically we lost Phil Hartman and Robin Williams to these deadly drugs, but Jim Carrey has made it through to show us all there is a way to survive this antidepressant-induced nightmare!!!

Posted are two videos. The first just a two minute statement with Jim saying he got off Prozac:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfWN5EW5eo4

The second one a lecture he gave just this Spring after being awarded a doctorate degree at a University in Southern Iowa. It is an excellent speech that everyone should hear! My favorite line from the lecture is this: “How will you serve the world? The effect you have upon others is the most valuable currency there is in life. Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart. Risk being seen in all of your glory!”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V80-gPkpH6M#t=1544

This is the comment to Jim that I just posted on the above video:

Jim I am hoping you will see this. I recently tried to reach you to be in a movie I am in that is coming out soon. You would have been perfect for it!

I should have stopped by to say this years ago, but there are so many people in trouble on antidepressants now that finding a minute for me to break away from helping them is not easy! But I want to congratulate you on making it through and out of the pit of hell the antidepressants throw people into. For years I told my kids as they would watch your movies that what they were seeing was the manic phase brought out by use of Prozac (even though it was not public knowledge at that time that you were on the drug – it just was obvious to me because of working with so many going through the same thing). I wanted them to understand what you were really going through behind the Prozac mask you were wearing for the world to see.

I know all too well how hard it can be to survive these drugs and I want you to know that I am glad you made it! I share your success with others who think they cannot crawl out of that hole and I know you raise them up to their full potential again and out of the bondage these drugs put them in with their horrific mind altering, life numbing, and horrific withdrawal effects. THANK YOU JIM!!!!

Tragically here is a list of many who did not make it through as unscathed as you did: www.ssristories.NET In their memory I would ask you to share their warning they have left for others by way of their sad and tragic outcomes to these drugs and then I would ask that you continue to encourage everyone to believe in themselves since these drugs continue to lie to them telling them they are worthless and can do nothing.
