Another Shooting at NAU in Flagstaff, AZ & School Shootings Linked to Antidepressants

NAU Flagstaff shooting

Steven Jones, Flagstaff shooter

In the early morning hours in my home state of Arizona there was yet another shooting in Flagstaff, AZ on the NAU campus. It apparently happened after some kind of a confrontation.

Here is a news report on what we know so far from Chan 15 in Phoenix: http://www.abc15.com/news/region-northern-az/flagstaff/breaking-news-reported-shooting-at-nau-flagstaff-campus

And here is a report from Chan 15 in Phoenix on a previous school shooting incident there involving Prozac where they are interviewing me and Mark Taylor, the first boy shot at Columbine High who sued the drug maker for causing Columbine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLVC0WUxi0533Age-9gsj3BErvlKWSFvc_&t=6&v=hFpQCEfTIzc

It is possible that his eyes are demonstrating either shock or what we have call “Prozac eyes”. I have testified in criminal cases involving these meds for 24 years (including many school shootings) and IF he did happen to be on an antidepressant you need to know that if something triggers the adrenaline for you then you seem to have no brakes for it. The adrenaline just keeps pumping thus producing over-reactions to situations. So that MAY be a part of what happened in this case to have him shoot not just once to put an end to the fight, but to continue shooting all of those involved in this incident.

Flagstaff has had quite a few cases already involving youth on antidepressants – one was my own niece who was attending NAU as well. She barely survived her suicide attempt after doctors convinced her that Wellbutrin was nothing like the Prozac her sister had made a serious suicide attempt on 10 years earlier. Here I am making that report to the FDA:

Ann Blake Tracy FDA testimony in Dec 2006:

http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Then as I was traveling through Flagstaff in about 2000 I stopped to get gas and asked if anyone there could tell me how to contact a police officer there in Flagstaff whose son had committed suicide on Prozac. I had lost their phone number and wanted to say hello as I went through town.

Someone instantly said, “Oh you mean the boy who committed suicide last weekend?”

Of course I imediately began asking questions. I soon learned there had been THREE teen suicides in that relatively small community in two weeks. One was a boy who on his 17th birthday laid on a railroad track to committ suicide. He was on an antidepressant and if I recall correctly he was taking Effexor. There was also another boy who shot himself and was also drunk. I was not able to find out what he might have been on because I found no contacts in that case. The third was a 14 year old girl on Prozac who was having serious adverse reactions and her mother was attempting to get her to the hospital when she jumped out of the car. While the mother was reporting the incident to 911 the call came in that her daughter had just run in front of a train. In fact in my experience finding a train involved in a suicide seems to always involve the use of an antidepressant.

Pharmacist Comment:

“The symptoms I see in patients who abuse serotonergic drugs of any form. ..could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (overconfidence in ones own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abusers life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton,KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now.

The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individuals persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann?

Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!”

Christopher Harper-Mercer (Oregon Shooter): School Shootings and Antidepressants

Christopher Harper-Mercer

Christopher Harper-Mercer

For a week now information has been coming out in the Oregon campus shooting where 10 lost their lives when Christopher Harper-Mercer opened fire. We have learned much to indicate that he was very likely taking antidepressants when he did this.

From the New York Times we learned that his mother is a nurse and we know how often nurses medicate their children because they have been brainwashed about antidepressants and medication in general. We also learned that his mother had said that both he and herself suffer from symptoms of Autism. But Autism is a condition of elevated serotonin levels yet 60% of those who suffer from Autism are medicated with these SSRI and SNRI antidepressants even though they are designed to increase serotonin. And natural news brought up that his Autism could have been vaccine-induced but neglected to say that with both the mother and son expiriencing Autistic tendencies it may be antidepressant-induced Autism. (See the following Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/328990743967534/

Antidepressants produce the symptoms of Autism as a side effect and as a birth defect. Studies have shown that mothers on antidepressants have a 3 – 4 times greater rate of giving birth to an Autistic child. So we need to know first if his mother’s Autistic symptoms are coming from her antidepressant and how long she has been tak ing antidepressants. If she was taking them while pregnant with her son it is critical to know that he was exposed to these drugs while in the womb.

From the Wall Street Journal we learned he “…had been discharged from the Army after attempting to commit suicide…” So it would appear he had been on medication for some time now and was having serious reactions to it for some time.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/accused-oregon-shooter-was-discharged-from-army-after-attempting-suicide-1444249903

From the LA Times we learn that he raged about others being crazy and then committed suicide after killing 9 others.

Paxil Withdrawl-Induced Bus Crash in Switzerland Killed 28 (22 children)

Swiss Bus Crash

INTRODUCTION TO CASE-PAXIL DOSE CUT BY HALF!

In March 2012 a coach carrying 52 people crashed in a tunnel in Sierre, Switzerland. 28 people died, 22 of them children, many more were injured.

The final report of the year long investigation was inconclusive. One startling fact was overlooked. The driver of the coach, 34 year-old Geert Michiels, had recently been told by his doctor to reduce his Seroxat dosage by half, furthermore, according to his widow, he failed to take his Seroxat on the day of the tragedy.

Hopefully, my research into this may get people talking. Please, don’t just like this post – read it first. The work I do is voluntary, my only payment is your eyes.

We owe it to the parents of the deceased children to start asking our own questions. If any of the victims were your children, you too would want answers. [PLEASE SEE FULL REVIEW BELOW]

~ Bob Fiddaman.

MY RESPONSE TO FULL REVIEW

Absolutely excellent review  Bobby!!!!! As one who has been testifying in court cases involving antidepressants for 23 years I would have no problem testifying to the fact that Paxil withdrawal was the main cause of this tragedy. Even our FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can produce suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis which combination of reactions can easily result in murder/ suicide.

 ADDITIONAL DATA ON HOW ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE MURDER/SUICIDES …

…. DREAM OR REALITY???? ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

…. EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

LINK AND EXCERPT TO BOB’s REVIEW OF CASE

http://fiddaman.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/did-seroxat-trigger-fatal-sierre-2012.html

Sierre, Switzerland, March 2012

There were 52 on board, 28 people perished, 22 of them were children. The other 24 pupils, all aged between 10 and 12, were injured, including three who were hospitalized with severe brain and chest injuries.

The exact cause of the crash has never been determined. The driver, Geert Michiels (34), also perished in the crash. An investigation showed that Michiels was not intoxicated.

A full investigation into the crash was carried out by Swiss Chief Prosecutor Olivier Elsig, the results of which were inconclusive. He ruled out the involvement of a third party, shortcomings in the road surface or the tunnel infrastructure. Excessive speed, alcohol or technical problems with the vehicle were also ruled out. He, at no point, could determine whether or not Geert Michiels carried out an act of homicide/suicide with the vehicle. In fact the final report leaves more questions than it does answers.

Michiels had driven the coach through a tunnel, he mounted the curb, made no attempt to apply the brakes, and crashed head-on into a short wall. Photographs of the scene were taken by one of the parents whose daughter was killed in the crash. Her photo’s, taken whilst visiting the tunnel sometime after the tragedy, show how Michiels mounted the pavement and made no attempt to steer the coach back into the road, opting instead to drive straight into a wall.

NEW STUDY: Anxiety Disorders Linked to ELEVATED Serotonin!

YET ANOTHER STUDY LINKS ANXIETY TO

ELEVATED, NOT LOW, SEROTONIN LEVELS

For anyone familiar with my book and my research the information brought out by this new research will be a “REALLY??????!!!!!!!!!!” moment combined with the after thought….”ISN’T THIS WAY OVER TWO DECADES TOO LATE? JUST WHAT DO YOU THINK ANN BLAKE TRACY HAS BEEN TELLING YOU ABOUT ELEVATED SEROTONIN, NOT LOW SEROTONIN, BEING THE INITIAL PROBLEM ALL ALONG WITH ALL THESE DISORDERS?”

According to this latest research: “The researchers discovered patients with social phobia were producing too much serotonin in the amygdala. This brain region, tucked deep inside our skulls, is the seat of our most primitive emotions, including fear. The more serotonin produced in this area, then, the more anxious people feel in social situations.”

And Dr. Mercola’s comment on those findings: “…when it comes to treating this anxiety disorder, increasing serotonin in your brain with an SSRI will not soothe your anxiety. It will increase it, making SSRIs a questionable treatment option.”

!!!!!!WITHDRAWAL WARNING!!!!!!

NOW BEFORE READING ANY FURTHER PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT STOP TAKING YOUR MEDICATION OR MAKE ANY ABRUPT CHANGES IN DOSE! I HAVE LONG WARNED THAT WITHDRAWAL CAN BE THE MOST DANGEROUS PERIOD OF TAKING AN ANTIDEPRESSANT IF YOU DO NOT WITHDRAW SLOWLY ENOUGH!!!!! ABRUPT CHANGES IN DOSE, ACCORDING TO FDA WARNINGS, CAN CAUSE SUICIDE, HOSTILITY OR PSYCHOSIS!!! TO NAME ONLY A FEW POSSIBILITIES…

PLEASE SEE BELOW TO KNOW HOW TO WITHDRAW SAFELY AND SUCCESSFULLY FROM THESE DRUGS!!! SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES. AND READ THIS ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE TAKEN ANY OF THESE MEDICATIONS LONG TERM:

MY TEN YEAR NIGHTMARE BEGAN WITH PROZAC

http://www.drugawareness.org/10-year-nightmare-with-prozac/

THE BIG SEROTONIN BLUNDER

So this new research indicates that the problem with anxiety disorders is ELEVATED serotonin, NOT low levels of serotonin. This is the BIG SEROTONIN LIE which I have been shouting about for decades with Dr. Candace Pert standing firmly behind me on all of it refering to my work as very important and me as a heroine because of working to get this information to patients. (Dr. Pert served as the Chief of the Section on Brain Biochemistry, Clinical Neuroscience Branch, at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) from 1983 to 1996, and whose discovery of the receptor binding process made the SSRI and SNRI antidepressants possible. http://www.drugawareness.org/i-am-alarmed-at-the-monster-ssrisnri-antidepressants-i-created-dr-candace-pert/)

Since the first edition of my book in 1994 there has been an entire chapter addressing this totally backwards hypotheis behind the SSRIs, SNRIs and now the new serotonergic Atypical Antipsychotic medications such as Zyprexa, Invega, Geodon, Risperdal, Abilify, Seroquel, etc. Since 1992 I have done hundreds of lectures and radio, television, magazine, and newspaper interviews on this very issue. I have always said is clearly a key issue behind why these drugs are so deadly and damaging for patients suffering from these disorders. See my 2004 presentation before the FDA below.

When you read the research since the early 50’s on serotonin (all in my book) it becomes very clear that the hypothesis was backwards and that antidepressants would actually CAUSE what patients were being told they would cure. (You can see that is the case just by reading all the “adverse reactions” listed in a package insert on these drugs….which I would call “expected reactions” rather than “adverse reactions” because the research makes it clear what would be the expected results.) Because this is all so clear I naively assumed those in charge would want it corrected and these drugs would be immediately pulled from the market and adjustments made.

For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism (serotonin reuptake inhibition – SSRI antidepressants are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) will produce migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.

Do not think that I believe adjustments can be made in these drugs to make them work correctly because everything that enhances the metabolism of serotonin is natural, God given, not chemicals. Those are things such as the sun, negative ions which you get from running water (streams, waterfalls, etc.), fasting (“Our results confirm that food deprivation increases the turnover of brain 5-HT and point out that the increase probably occurs in all brain areas” L. D. Fuenmayor and S. García, Br J Pharmacol. 1984 Oct; 83(2): 357–362.), garlic is another, etc., etc. That being said I have always said that once they are caught and the public exposed to this truth about serotonin they will attempt to  market a drug that does the opposite to correct what the drugs have done. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR NEW MARKETING PLAN!!!!

September 2004 Testimony on Serotonin Before the FDA on Elevated Serotonin

Here I am in 2004 testifying to the FDA as to this very issue of elevated serotonin being the initial problem with all the conditions for which SSRIs and SNRIs have long been prescribed – meaning that antidepressants being given to increase those already elevated serotonin levels any higher were the LAST thing anyone suffering from any of these issues needed because it would obviously worsen the initial disorder the patient was already suffering from!

http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda

Tragically, instead of a ban and an apology for that mistake, all patients got was a Black Box Warning on increased suicidal ideation (compulsion) in children and young adults and the drugs remained on the market continuing to produce worsen the disorders they were being given for. So now you can see why when before we rarely knew anyone who was “mentally ill” yet now we all know many who are – these medications are causing it according to all this research! The aftermath of such a huge mistake is staggering with all of the school shootings, soldiers committing suicide, murder/suicides wiping out entire families around the world, parents killing their own children and children killing their own parents! Is it any wonder we have been able to gather this huge database of tragic cases as a testament of this botched serotonin hypothesis: www.SSRIstories.NET

Dr. Mercola & I Lectured Together in 2003

The article posted below as a reference with more information about this study was written by Dr. Joseph Mercola who I do hope you are all familiar with and are regularly getting his newsletter with some excellent ideas on health. He is a regular MD who focuses more on natural cures for various issues.

Interestingly Dr. Mercola and I lectured together in 2003 at the Young Living Oils annual convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. As we stood and spoke with one another after our lectures I explained all of this information to him on The Big Serotonin Lie and how serotonin is actually elevated in all of these disorders, not a condition of low levels of serotonin. Then I gave him a copy of my book on antidepressants called Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! with 21 pages of references to medical studies to prove the serotonin hypothysis is backwards. (In fact this information is a critical issue which has been used in some very high profile court cases bringing in wins.)

At that time I also shared with Dr. Mercola the research of Dr. Murray Essler done in 2000 out of Australia. Dr. Esler was shocked by his own research when he found that those suffering from anxiety disorders had serotonin levels EIGHT TIMES HIGHER than normal! At that point he joined me in asking the same obvious question I had been asking for a decade at that point….which is, “If the initial problem in anxiety disorders (and all the others) is ELEVATED serotonin WHY on earth are patients being given drugs to elevate the serotonin even higher?!!!”

Here is a link to that lecture given with Dr. Mercola if you would like to listen. In my opinion of all the lectures I have ever given it is one of my favorite:

http://www.drugawareness.org/choose-essential-oils-healthy-alternatives-not-drugs/

New Research on Anxiety Disorders Being a Condition of

ELEVATED SEROTONIN LEVELS!!!

So Dr. Mercola has been aware of this information for over a decade now. And even though I have not seen him put out anything on it before I am glad to see that this new study has spurred him to address this extremely important issue on the glaringly obvious problem behind the hypothesis behind the SSRI and SNRI antidepressants which also ties into the new atypical antipsychotics which are serotonergic medications as well. I will include a portion of this article, but because it has very critical information on serotonin and antidepressants in it, I would suggest everyone read it. And if you want all of the research, including all that existed even before SSRI and SNRI antidepressants were introduced to the market I suggest my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, (NO it is not just about Prozac, but all antidepressants!) which is the only text I am aware of addressing this issue of elevated serotonin or low serotonin metabolism, rather than low serotonin being the cause behind anxiety, depression, psychosis, Bipolar disorder, etc. The 2014 issue is available here: http://store.drugawareness.org/

Social Anxiety Disorder Linked to High Serotonin Levels, Throwing Treatment with SSRIs into Serious Question

By Dr. Mercola

Depression and other mental health problems are at epidemic levels judging by the number of antidepressants prescribed each year.

According to CDC data, one in 20 Americans over the age of 12 report some form of depression, and 11 percent of the US population over the age of 12 is on antidepressant medication.

This despite overwhelming evidence showing that antidepressants do not work as advertised.

At best, antidepressants are comparable to placebos. At worst they can cause devastating side effects, including deterioration into more serious mental illness, and suicidal or homicidal tendencies.

Virtually all of the school and mass shooters, for example, have been on antidepressants. Antidepressants are also prescribed to pregnant women, which can have serious repercussions for the child.

Research shows boys with autism are three times more likely to have been exposed to antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in utero than non-autistic boys. Those whose mothers used SSRIs during the first trimester were found to be at greatest risk.

Recent research into the mechanisms driving anxiety and social phobias now turn conventional drug treatment with SSRIs on its ear.

Turns out these mental health problems are not due to low serotonin levels as previously thought. They’re linked to high levels! If these findings are taken as seriously as they should be, the mental health field is in for a major overhaul.

The Low Serotonin Theory Was Never Proven True, Yet Spawned a Booming Market of SSRIs

Prozac was released in 1987 in the US, giving rise to an entire new antidepressant therapy class known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)…..click link above to continue to original article.

NY TIMES: Antidepressant Paxil Is Unsafe for Teenagers, New Analysis Says

“This paper is alarming, but its existence is a good thing,” said Brian Nosek, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, who was not involved in either the original study or the reanalysis. “It signals that the community is waking up, checking its work and doing what science is supposed to do — self-correct.”

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT ABRUPT OR RAPID WITHDRAWAL FROM PAXIL OR ANY ANTIDEPRESSANT OR SWITCHING ANTIDEPRESSANTS CAN BE MORE DANGEROUS THAN CONTINUING ON THE DRUG!!!! SEE INFORMATION ON SAFE WITHDRAWAL BELOW.

David Healy, one of the authors of the reanalysis, said that adverse events in the original study involved suicidal thinking or behavior but were mislabeled.

Fourteen years ago, a leading drug maker published a study showing that the antidepressant Paxil was safe and effective for teenagers. On Wednesday, a major medical journal posted a new analysis of the same data concluding that the opposite is true.

That study — featured prominently by the journal BMJ — is a clear break from scientific custom and reflects a new era in scientific publishing, some experts said, opening the way for journals to post multiple interpretations of the same experiment. It comes at a time of self-examination across science — retractions are at an all-time high; recent cases of fraud have shaken fields as diverse as anesthesia and political science; and earlier this month researchers reported that less than half of a sample of psychology papers held up.

“This paper is alarming, but its existence is a good thing,” said Brian Nosek, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, who was not involved in either the original study or the reanalysis. “It signals that the community is waking up, checking its work and doing what science is supposed to do — self-correct.”

The authors of the reanalysis said that many clinical studies had some of the same issues as the original Paxil study, and that data should be made freely available across clinical medicine, so that multiple parties could analyze them.

The dispute itself is a long-running one: Questions surrounding the 2001 study played a central role in the so-called antidepressant wars of the early 2000s, which led to strong warnings on the labels of Paxil and similar drugs citing the potential suicide risk for children, adolescents and young adults. The drugs are considered beneficial and less risky for many adults over 25 with depression.

Over the years, thousands of people taking or withdrawing from Paxil or other psychiatric drugs have committed violent acts, including suicide, experts said, though no firm statistics are available. Because many factors could have contributed to that behavior, it is still far from clear who is at risk — and for whom the drugs are protective…..”

[I would remind Benedict that those initial studies done on these antidepressants which the drug makers kept hidden, even from the FDA, for 20 years, indicated when anylized in 2008 that these antidepressants provide no more benefit than a placebo would. Yet as we see from the FDA Black Box Warnings and this re-analysis of this study Paxil has some very serious issues associated with it that leaves the Risk to Benefit ratio so far off balance to the negative side that this drug needs to be banned like all the rest of the SSRIs and SNRIs do! Please pull up our database of cases and read the real life laboratory results on Paxil in the way of violence and suicide …. www.SSRIstories.NET

Also keep in mind that Paxil was found to be the cause of the mass murder/suicide committed by Donald Schell and resulting in the deaths of three of his family members and himself after Mr. Schell took only two pills of Paxil. See Tobin vs Glaxo 2001 in Cheyenne, WY.

ANTIDEPRESSANT??? Father, Nurse, Believed to Have Killed His Wife, Three Children & Self

Short family

Brian Short and family

Brian Short, a nurse with a large online website for nurses, killed his children while they slept and then his wife as she was awakened by the gunshots and began to call 911. He then went to their garage and shot himself. This is the high profile Minnesota murder/suicide case we have been discussing on my Facebook page most of the week and the following is my comment on the first article listed below in ORIGINAL ARTICLES. The latest is the second article below from People Magazine.

It has already been reported that Brian was having mental health issues and some financial issues. Financial issues are also common with the use of antidepressants since the drugs so easily produce Bipolar in the form of mania or hypomania which involve very poor judgement when it comes to finances and includes wild spending.

Here is my comment: Obviously most of you here need a reality check so here we go….there is NOTHING NEW about these types of tragedies! I have dealt with them ALL DAY LONG for years now and until lately it seemed that few cared as I continued to shout the warnings this was coming. I have been writing, lecturing, doing media and movies and testifying in court about it as well as to the FDA. Here is a database of 5000 cases (just the tip of this iceberg) including nearly every school shooting and mass murder and murder/suicide in the country over the past 2 1/2 decades: www.SSRIstories.NET. These are all cases involving the use of an antidepressant – drugs that act like a slow-fuse LSD or PCP as they increase serotonin – the chemical in the brain that LSD and PCP mimic in order to produce hallucinogenic effects.

How could an antidepressant cause a loving mother or father to kill those who mean the most to them in life?

Simple. Antidepressants strongly impair sleep producing a disorder known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a sleep state. And who gets hurt in your nightmares if not those you care about the most? Of those being diagnosed with RBD 86% are taking an antidepressant and 80% of them hurt themselves or someone else. It has long been know that this includes both murder and suicide as a result. RBD was known basically as a drug withdrawal state before the SSRI antidepressants hit the market. So having someone withdraw slowly enough to avoid serious withdrawal is key in prevention.

Take the case of Andrea Yates, also a nurse, and the third nurse in a three month period to go to court for killing her children – all while on antidepressants. The other two nj\urses were married to doctors. Just the day before Andrea drowned all five of her children she had two huge dosage changes in her antidepressants (which the FDA warns can produced suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis) so she was on two antidepressants, both at maximum dose when she drowned her children. Rusty Yates will tell you in a heartbeat that losing her children was Andrea’s very worst nightmare. She had even quit her nursing career so she could spend more time with them. (Also during Andrea’s second trial a female doctor in Illinois on one of the antidepressants Andrea was taking stabbed her two sons.)

This Minnesota case has nothing to do with a holistic practitioner taking his life or being murdered. Brian Short was a mainstream nurse using medical modalities, not alternatives. Medical professionals have long been the highest single group involved in these cases. In fact 60% of workplace violence takes place in a medical facility. Since that is where the drugs are available we should not be surprised.

How much does this group of medical professionals use antidepressants?

In the fall of 2007 a Russian news crew came to interview me for a special on antidepressants just a few hours South of where this tragedy took place. After they filmed me giving a lecture on the subject we opened for questions. A psych nurse stood and said she knew everything I had said about these drugs that night were true because she was on the antidepressant, Lexapro, and had suffered every side effect I had listed. She then said, “But you do not understand what is going on out here. A good 75% of the doctors and nurses I work with are on antidepressants! Drug reps are coming in and telling them they are in a really stressful profession and sooner or later depression would set in because of this so they should get started on the drugs now.” To support her statement I give you a couple of comments from Brian Short’s website for nurses discussing one nurse’s concern over her own inability to function cognitively as a nurse while taking antidepressants:

“Honey, nine tenths of the nurses I know are on anti depressants, anti anxiety, even some anti psychotics. Yes, you can work on these meds, and nobody in hiring asks a thing about it. We talk among ourselves and that’s how I know this of course. But its not a big deal. I would not be able to work WITHOUT them!!!!! :O)”….KaroSnowQueen

“… I’d estimate that at least 75% of my nursing school class was on them by graduation and many of the nurses I work with have talked about taking them also. I’m a firm believer in taking meds if you need them…” ….Jules A

(Keep in mind these are the people treating you when you walk into a doctor’s office or hospital…wish I had a way to post brain waves of someone on an antidepressant so you could see “no one is home” while on these drugs!)

In summary, Brian Short had every physical sign of being on an antidepressant as well as news reports of “mental illness”. (I use quotations because most mental illness is being chemically induced via these so called medications we refer to as antidepressants.) So until we have more evidence I would say that once again the indications are this is yet another senseless tragedy caused by these very deadly drugs.

DREAM OR REALITY???? ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

ZOLOFT MURDER: The Case of 12 Year Old Christopher Pittman

chris pittman playing ball

Christopher Pittman, 12

I was absolutely shocked the other night when looking through all of the television specials we have posted on our website for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness www.drugawareness.org when I found that this special on 48 Hours on the case of 12 year old Christopher Pittman only had 46 views!!!! No wonder all of you thought that special posted almost 9 times on my Facebook page early this week was the only television special addressing these drugs! You apparently have not known where to find these. There are at least 50 posted at this point with many more waiting to be posted on our website. Please take the time to view them so you can see that quite a bit has been done so far in the media – of course there has not been anywhere near enough –  especially lately or there would be such a public outcry that  these drugs would no longer be on the market.

When I did an interview with Court TV on Chris’ case as it was in court they broke away to their next case who just happened to be a teenage girl in Idaho, also on Zoloft, who killed both her parents. Next they went to the case of Cody, the teenage boy who killed his mother and father and little brother on Sam Donaldson’s ranch in New Mexico, who was also on Zoloft. They were so shocked seeing all of these cases together that they even stopped the show for a minute to comment, “What the heck is with this Zoloft and kids killing their families?!!!!” About ten years ago I had a case of a 5 year old on Zoloft in Southern Utah who experienced such strong homicidal ideation that the family said the boy called 911 to ask the police to come and kill his family for him!!!!

Chris Pittman and His Family’s Zoloft-Induced Hell

In 2001 the world was shocked as the news reports of a 12 year old boy who killed his grandparents and burned their house down broke nationwide. I got a call from Barbara Simpson with Coast to Coast AM to do a show on children and antidepressants in which I said I had no doubt we would find this case was yet another antidepressant case. I do hope the prosecutor in this case and the jury realize how much their unwillingness to listen to the truth in this case and thereby learn their lesson about these deadly drugs has contributed to all of the SSRI-induced deaths in South Carolina since Chris’ case went to court.

Watson Wright, Coroner, Chester County

One person I worked very closely with on Chris’ case, besides Andy Vickery, Chris’ attorney and Chris’ family, is Watson Wright, the coroner for Chester County in South Carolina. He was not only the coroner in this case, but was also a very close friend of Christopher’s grandparents who died. Watson knew without doubt that Zoloft was the cause of this tragic double murder and arson. In his mind there was no other explanation which is why he contacted me. He knew the family and Chris well.

Chris and his two favorite people in the world, his grandparents

Add to Watson’s conviction of what happened in this case the testimony of the other experts and you wonder how on earth this case went the way it did. In my mind the answer to that is simple….Pfizer and their connections. This is a company who has been found guilty of RICO yet the judge allowed them to have another company they had just purchased pay the price for that crime. Otherwise Pfizer would have been shut down and out of business. Obviously it is all who you know and who owes you favors.

Movie: A Total Transformation From Drugs to Health “May I Be Frank?”

frank before

Frank Before Transformation – 10 years on antidepressants!

Frank after

Frank After Transformation

This is a movie I have wanted to share with you for some time now. This is a real person, Frank Ferrante, who got into drugs and then was on tons of medication. That was before he ran into a bunch of health nuts who decided to help him rebuild his health, change his life and film his metamorphosis. You can see from the pictures above the miraculous change they brought in his life….little different than watching someone’s health go the opposite direction once one begins on these deadly antidepressants and other psychoactive medications.

His appearance and life is very much like someone who has been on antidepressants for a while with the distended stomach and rounded face classic of Cushing’s Syndrome which is produced by antidepressants. It would be no surprise to me to learn that he was on these drugs as well. When one single 30mg dose of Prozac can DOUBLE cortisol levels (the indicator that the body is under great stress) no one should be surprised that patients on these SSRI/SNRI antidepressants end up with all the signs of Cushing’s Syndrome – the distended stomach, rounded face, the hump at the top of the spine/base of the neck.

Brace yourself as Frank is very blunt and did not have the cleanest vocabulary when they first begin working with him. But plug your ears if necessary and you will see the drastic changes in him as the movie goes on. This is truly a case where seeing is believing! You will be amazed. Everyone, everywhere should see this documentary to understand that YOU REALLY ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!!

For those wondering if you will ever get well….Frank’s story should bring you great hope for recovery.

Click link below to view the movie trailer:

Okay I just now finished watching the movie myself and am shocked to learn that not only was Frank on antidepressants for TEN YEARS before this, he was on Effexor – one of the most difficult of all of them to withdraw from and he came off with hardly ANY withdrawal symptoms that I saw!!! And this experiment only went on for 42 days! To be off Effexor in that amount of time and doing as well as he did is just plain unheard of! This group of people need to set up an antidepressant withdrawal center and I will recommend everyone go there because they did everything I would have recommended minus hyperbaric oxygen treatment!!!!!! Other than that they did it all.

Here is an older Huffington Post article featuring this movie…

May I Be Frank:

A life changing documentary

Talk about life changing documentaries, and there have been a lot in the past few years. This is one to add to the list for sure!!

May I Be Frank is a documentary about Frank, a drug addict who is morbidly obese, pre-diabetic and has Hepatitis C. Frank is not only extremely overweight, but also is on tons of medication [Including ten years worth of antidepressants for which he can thank the weight gain and pre-diabetes and self isolation, etc. – all fairly common side effects of antidepressants.] Frank lives in San Francisco, and one day he makes his way into Café Gratitude, a raw, vegan and organic restaurant. He strikes up a rapport and later a friendship with a few of the staff members. One day they happen to ask Frank a question, “What is one thing you want to do before you die?” Frank says he wants to fall in love one more time, but he thinks no one would love him looking the way he does.

His new friends are inspired to help him transform his life. They challenge him to a 42-day transformation. He has to agree to eat what they say (mostly raw and vegan), practice affirmations in front of a mirror, get colonics and follow “The Abounding River Logbook” (written by the owners of Café Gratitude about being abundant). In this book you practice loving life, adoring yourself, accepting the world, being generous and grateful every day and experiencing being provided for!

For me one of the important messages in this movie is that there is more to getting healthy than just changing your diet. There is a reason Frank became morbidly obese. You have to do the inside work as well as the diet and exercise!

I have personally dreamed about visiting Café Gratitude for years. Getting a glimpse of how things work there was so great. The staff is just as I had imagined them: committed, compassionate, and healthy as ever.

There is also some irony here, as I am on my own life-saving health journey. When I heard about Frank’s story I knew it was going to be a monumental movie in my life. Watching Frank’s transformation was close to my heart. I think there is a part of Frank in all of us. His story is soulful, sad, inspiring and funny all rolled in to one amazing documentary.

Frank and the makers of this film are traveling around the country sharing Frank’s message. They chose to bring this film directly to the audiences. It was a homegrown film, made in a very holistic way, and released to the world in the same way. If you want some healthy inspiration going into the New Year, I highly recommend this one.

 And thank you Frank for sharing your life with us all to help others to see what can be accomplished when you work at it! Your story is basically my own story of recovery from terminal cancer decades ago. I thank God for LaDean Griffin and her daughter, Lynn, who saved my life with all this information which LaDean put in her wonderful book “Is Any Sick Among You?” and Lynn was kind enough to share it with me so long ago when I could barely walk after doctors had butchered me and spread the cancer.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? Canadian medical student planned massacre

Stephen Gregory Tynes

Court documents say that Stephen Gregory Tynes, a medical student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada threatened to kill up to 20 people, a school official and her daughter and stab his psychiatrist and kill himself. They found 1800 rounds of ammo in his residence.

I am currently working with a doctor who got started on antidepressants while he was in medical student. This is a very common practice among medical students – especially with their schedules and the pressure they are under.

Interestingly, as with the Virginia shooter who killed his own two cats (which he supposedly loved) when he got fired, this man too was seen killing a cat last summer and went to court for that in December.

In the second article included below you will see that in July of 2014 Stephen Gregory Tynes, a medical student, was seen picking a cat up by its hind legs, swinging it over his head, then into the ground, killing it. He went to court on animal cruelty charges in December.

PROZAC: MEET MY FRIEND KRISSY FETTERS, THE 14 YEAR OLD “MURDERER” AND HER DEATH

Krissy With Her Favorite Aunt Arlene

In Des Moines, Iowa in 1994 14 year old Krissy, on Prozac, hit her Aunt Arlene over the head with an iron skillet and stabbed her at least five times before realizing what she was doing. You often ask me how I can continue to document these cases. There are times it is very hard and almost impossible to continue, but I do it for them, all the victims of these drugs. Krissy is one example of many. It has taken me over a year to even read the articles about Krissy’s death last July. I finally did that this weekend and cried like a baby all weekend. Tears stream down my face now as I write this.

The Prozac-Induced Murder

Krissy had been kidnapped, beaten badly enough to break her nose and raped. To help her “cope” with that ordeal she was given Prozac and two other meds as well and locked in a mental ward. She escaped the mental ward and ran to her favorite aunt’s home who had been like a mother to Krissy.

Likely in abrupt withdrawal without access to meds Krissy went into the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – long known as a drug withdrawal state (see more on RBD below). She began dreaming she was beating and stabbing the boy who kidnapped, beat and raped her. Thinking she was fighting for her life this time, she suddenly realized it was not the boy who beat and raped her, it was her Aunt Arlene! She then cradled her aunt in her arms as she died.

Krissy Was the Youngest Iowan Convicted of Murder

Kristina Fetters was the youngest person convicted of murder in Iowa at the age of 14. Prozac was never used as her defense. She was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Krissy learned from her mother in 2006 that I had moved to Iowa hoping to open an antidepressant withdrawal center. We made arrangements for me to visit Krissy at the prison. And before I had a chance to get clearance from the prison to visit her she wrote to me about what actually happened that day. She still had questions and was not fully understanding what had happened to her to cause her to do what she did and having only spotty memory of it all. It tears my heart out to have to explain to families what happens in these tragedies, but even more so to have to explain to a child who should not even have to face such things in their lives, but rather have a chance to just be kids.

Her mother shared Krissy’s story with a Russian news crew who came to Iowa to interview me about antidepressants in 2007. And a news crew from England looking into the “barbaric” American policy of incarcerating children for life interviewed Krissy several times. I also interviewed with them.

2012 US Supreme Court Banned Life Without Parole for Children

Krissy’s case remains rare since she was the first Iowa inmate serving a life term without the possibility of parole, to have her sentence changed. A U.S. Supreme Court 2012 ruling deems life without parole unconstitutional for juveniles now. Following the major ruling, Kristina Fetters was re-sentenced with parole as an option.

Cancer and This New Ruling Brought Krissy’s Early Release

Krissy developed breast cancer in 2013. She had been given yet another antidepressant, Effexor, which we know from studies that all antidepressants increase the rate of cancer with Paxil increasing the rate of breast cancer by seven times.

The parole board did release Krissy to hospice care outside the prison where she could at least be with her family while she died. Upon her release she had a cancer tumor on every one of her vertebrae. She also had tumors on her hips the size of a hand. Doctors said she was in the end stage of breast cancer. She lost her battle with cancer about six months later. She passed away Sunday, July 27, 2014. How many more of these children will die in prison before our world wakes up to why they are really there?!!!

Krissy was such a sweetheart with such a wonderful personality and attitude toward life in spite of all she had been through and forced to deal with at such a young age! What a tragic loss for us all – as all of these cases are! God bless her soul and give her the comfort now that she was never granted in this life!

Her family statement upon her release from prison:

“Words cannot express the amount of joy that we are feeling to be able to help Kristina with this last stage in her life. We understand that not everyone agrees with the Parole Board decision, however, we would like to thank those of you who did step forward in support of Kristina and our family. Without all of you who know and believe in her, we are not sure that the outcome would have been the same. Your overwhelming love and support has been greatly appreciated by all of us. Thank you for helping our Krissy.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study:  http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/
