Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

Cassie Bernall, 17
Steven Curnow, 14
Corey DePooter, 17
Kelly Fleming, 16
Matthew Kechter, 16
Daniel Mauser, 15
Daniel Rohrbough, 15
Rachel Scott, 17
Isaiah Shoels, 18
John Tomlin, 16
Lauren Townsend, 18
Kyle Velasquez, 16

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.

Trading Money for Mayhem:

Anti-depressants’ Deadly Effects on America

JUNE 25, 2014 Posted by: KELLY GNEITING
Reddit

I am Ann Blake Tracy, author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare. Since early 1990 I have devoted every minute of my life to researching and writing about the SSRI antidepressant drugs. Since 1992 I have been testifying as an expert court witness on their adverse effects. I also head an international organization, the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org), designed to educate the medical profession, patients, government authorities and others about these adverse effects and their impact upon our society. To see a full bio of who I am and what I have been doing over the past two plus decades you can go to http://www.drugawareness.org/mission/board/

In the beginning I had NO idea the overwhelming opposition I would face in my attempt to point out the obvious faults in the hypothesis behind these new antidepressants. I quickly learned that opposition was due to the massive amount of income produced by this group of drugs. But when I saw the damaging results I have seen from these drugs upon our society, I was determined to help save the lives of so many that are being needlessly lost. So concerned was I about the violence we were seeing in women and children I called the NRA and asked them to help me warn of the dangers of these drugs telling them that in the end these drugs would be the means by which enough violence would be produced that there would be a call to take America’s guns. Two decades later that is exactly where we are. Once you understand the science behind the drugs you will be able to see that such a prediction was only simple deduction.

Most important to learn is that SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants are the most similar drugs to LSD and PCP– long known to produce indescribable violence, we have ever seen. Yet LSD, was patented in 1956 by Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac which was the first of these SSRI antidepressants to be produced. They marketed LSD as a cure for mental illness and alcoholism and as an aid in psychoanalysis even though initially LSD was introduced by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals as a way to chemically induce insanity in someone so that scientists could then determine what was the root cause OF insanity.

PCP was introduced by Parke Davis Pharmaceutical and thought to be such a safe and effective prescription drug that it was on the market 7 years before pulling it. Its removal from the market was NOT due to concerns of the AMA or FDA, but at the insistence of law enforcement and judges who were tired of dealing with the violence produced by the drug. In fact over the past decade now scientists have even suggested that Ketamine (Special K), a sister drug to PCP, is the perfect antidepressant … with only one major drawback being the hallucinations/psychosis it produces. Of course since PCP and Ketamine are anesthetics they should know the drugs would stop all feeling, but do we really want a huge portion of society walking around under anesthesia? Yet since these antidepressants are so similar in action that is exactly what we have now.

In the early 2000’s law enforcement began to ask why violence for seemingly NO reason at all was appearing everywhere. And in February of 2004 Sheriff Richard Mack testified before the FDA on this same type of violence being produced as a result of these antidepressants. He ended his comments with: “”Some people don’t have the adverse reaction to these drugs, some do. I learned the same with LSD when I investigated that as an undercover narcotics officer. I can only say that the evidence is mounting over and over [as we investigate]. We cannot, as law enforcement officials, ignore such circumstantial evidence. I doubt very seriously if you could either… I am an advocate for state’s rights and I do believe that if the FDA fails to take action, the state and local authorities will have to.” (Sheriff Mack’s full testimony can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/t9wLpnu-iSc)

As you look at the following information I believe you will agree that it is time for state and local authorities to take action.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & SCHOOL VIOLENCE: This is a very long list of school violence/shootings we have documented which have been linked to antidepressant use since 1988 – 67 cases on the list: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be

A direct link to this list where you can read more on each individual case is at http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings and an entire database of almost 5000 cases like this ending in workplace violence, murder/suicides, etc. is at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org

Two other videos which you will find extremely enlightening are Corey Baadsgard’s video interview with him and his father about his own experience as the only school shooter I am aware of to talk about what happened, “Why I Took a Gun to School…”http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

Mark Taylor was the first boy shot at Columbine High School. He took 7 -13 bullets and survived. He became known as the Columbine Miracle Boy. This is Mark’s story about a new nightmare worse than what happened the day he was shot Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine.” You will learn about the cause of Columbine which includes Michael Moore stating it was NOT the guns, but the antidepressants that caused Columbine: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/mark-taylors-fight4columbine

Here is Mark’s testimony before the FDA: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/mark-taylors-testimony-before-the-fda-9132004

For the science behind the violence I would point out that these drugs have suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects. Ideation is not just thoughts of either suicide or homicide. Ideation is ruminating compulsive thoughts or actions resulting in suicide or homicide. Once again I ask why is it okay to have prescription medications on the market known to cause both suicide and homicide? I refer also you to my brief September 2004 FDA testimony. http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda and my 2006 FDA testimony to give you more in depth information on other types of cases these drugs are producing other than school shootings: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Another very serious issue I have been tracking this entire time is the problems in the military with these drugs. Hopefully you noticed the last two mass shootings in the military, the Navy Yard shooting and the Fort Hood shooting were both committed by someone taking antidepressants. Besides that since about 2007 the number of suicides in the military have outnumbered the deaths in battle – a first in our military while young recruits are being told they must take these antidepressants to go into combat. At this point we now have 660 suicides and another 1600 suicide attempts per month! I know the very large majority are being caused by these drugs, but it needs to be documented and then it needs to stop!

It is also important to note that I just testified before the Danish Parliament on the brain damage, endocrine damage and terrible long term withdrawal associated with antidepressants. Critical to understand is that the FDA has issued warnings that ANY abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant (whether increasing or decreasing the dose) can produce suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis. The withdrawal MUST be extremely (months and even years) in order to avoid these deadly effects!

Please feel free to contact me after viewing this information if I can answer any question left unanswered or if I can be of any further assistance.

Respectfully,

To “Celebrate” the Fifteenth Anniversary of Columbine …

Natalie Carpenter, 18, Arrested for Planning Two School Shootings

And She Threatened Columbine

Today, April 20, 2014, is the 15th Anniversary of the Columbine School Shooting. And this week it was announced on CBS in Denver that the threat made against Columbine last September was made from a cell phone owned by Natalie Carpenter – an 18 year old girl in Connecticut. She was arrested in March for planning to shoot up Danbury and Stratford high schools in Connecticut to get back at students she believed bullied her.

My first question would be “Was she depressed after the Sandy Hook shooting and given an antidepressant for that – the same drugs behind the majority of school shootings – the same drugs that list “homicidal and suicidal ideation” as side effects which are almost double for those her age?”

We have only had one case of a teenage girl who was the shooter in a school shooting incident and that was Elisabeth Bush, 14, who shot her best friend a Catholic school in PA, while under the influence of Paxil. Reports have been increasing of more and more females commiting violent crimes – something I have been trying to get people to see for some time. Since the introduction of SSRI antidepressants we have continued to see more and more cases of violence with women as the perpetrators. And woman began committing very violent suicides unlike what had been seen in the past.

Ann Blake Tracy Interviewed on Jeff Rense Show 1/22/2014

 

jeff show with me

Listen to latest interview with Ann Blake Tracy on the Jeff Rense Show from just a few weeks ago …. and just in case you think anyone is immune from this serotonin nightmare let me share that I learned yesterday that a friend, only 41 years old, was buried last Thursday after dying in her sleep. I will need to check her current medications but a year ago it was a few including Neurontin and Topamx after having an initial reaction to Reglan which caused seizures for her. Of course before that Lexapro caused her adverse reactions. She was already hypoglycemic and Reglan causes serious blood sugar reactions that for her led to seizures. Then some idiot doctor had told her to drink Dr. Pepper for that of all things!!!! She had just gotten married on Christmas so will her poor new husband be next as doctors rush to medicate him for his loss?

There is MUCH more that is associated with this case that I will share as soon as I am able to do a little more investigation. She and I had discussed it several times. She clearly understood the dangers of antidepressants worrying often about her mother and sister who are both still on the drugs but yet still tragically placing her faith in the new drugs she was being given. Even worse is the fact that we were working to tie in the murder of her infant daughter years ago by another young child to antidepressants as well. For her I will continue the search for that information. I have little doubt at this point as the information we have gathered currently is overwhelming, but I want a final confirmation. And when I do … what we now know to be a nightmare with these drugs will prove to be the worst nightmare any of us could ever imagine!

Then this morning I awoke to more tragic news – the suicide of a dear friend who I did not realize had become “depressed” over the recent loss of his mother. Although antidepressants are NOT approved for situation depression – depression brought on by something like a death or relationship break-up, etc. – I am sure there were plenty of doctors offering him an antidepressant to get him through this. He was Jewish and it has been my experience over the past 25 years of specializing in antidepressants, that Jewish people generally do not handle these drugs well. It is likely due to the P450 2D6 liver enzyme system impairment that can run through various races and families thus making it more difficult to metabolize the antidepressant. When that happens of course it will cause the drug to build to toxic levels faster than it would for most. He too was way too young … (Click link below to continue and to listen to the radio interview)

AMERICA’S PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADDICTION

CDC: NOW FASTEST GROWING DRUG PROBLEM

BREAKING NEWS FROM TODAY’S LONDON DAILY MAIL

…. Experts have warned legal substances caused more overdose deaths than heroine and cocaine combined during the past decade, according to the U.S. report.

…. In 2010 more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants were written for Americans.

…. 70 MILLION Americans are on mind-altering drugs: shock statistic which shows full extent of use of illegal and legal narcotics

…. One in Five adults take prescription psychiatric drugs

…. CDC: “Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States.’

…. 27,000 unintentional drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States

…. 10 per cent of high school pupils are prescribed drugs for ADHD

…. Anti-depressants have been linked to a series of school shootings

(You can see that data posted here: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/)

My Posted Comment to This Article

“For 25 years I have been screaming this warning of the prescription drug train wreck heading straight for America, but then extending worldwide. Most did not want to hear it. If mainstream media wanted to keep their advertising dollars – one of their main sources of revenue – they knew they had to keep quiet about it or even downplay what was happening before our eyes. So I documented school & workplace shootings, etc.

“My first book came in 1991, another in 1994, then 2000 Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare warned in even more detail the ravages of drugs acting upon serotonin – the antidepressants, antipsychotics, & pain killers. Serotonin is what LSD mimics. Increase the level gradually & the individual begins to appear as if they are becoming mentally ill. No one links it to the drug because it has been such a slow process. Sadly even the patient is convinced they are going insane due to his/her own drug-induced thoughts & actions & becomes a customer for life.”

If you are caught up in this new age drug nightmare and want off you need to know what you are doing and how to wean off safely. Make sure any doctor you go to for help knows about withdrawal because far too many do not know anything about it. Many patients will share with their doctors the CD mentioned below on safe and successful withdrawal as it explains why there is a need for such a slow, gradual withdrawal with serotonergic medications. Withdrawal can be one of the most dangerous periods of taking an antidepressant if you do not know what you are doing! (See FDA withdrawal warning below)

The REAL State of the Union in just 889 words…

This was just too good not to share today! Simon Black is one of my most favorite – very bright when it comes to finances – financial advice I am hoping I will need soon when these drugs are finally off the market and I can get on with my life so that I once again have any money to worry about knowing what to do with it!

When this came in my email this morning I thought the only thing missing from this is the serotonin nightmare in which we now live in this nation as the highest users of antidepressants….shockingly senseless and extremely violent murders and suicides, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, air rage, skyrocketing divorce, female school teachers molesting male students, entire families being wiped out in murder/suicides, an epidemic of antidepressant-induced Bipolar completely disabling the lives of so many, etc., etc.

Sometimes I have to wonder if one reason for all this is to distract us from seeing what is really going on in this nation? So I share with you the REAL State of the Union from Simon Black … ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and WELL WORTH THE READ!

state of the union

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, fellow citizens:

This summer we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

This senseless, destructive war was started and championed by politicians who cared nothing for the 9 million people who lost their lives.

And in doing so, they began a century of warfare which continues to this day.

Our military industrial complex is larger than ever. We have nearly 2 million troops and national guardsmen, plus 3.5 million civilians employed in the defense sector.

With such awesome capabilities, we continue to resort to violence and death to exact political goals which benefit a tiny elite.

All of this has created a police state in the Land of the Free that is a far cry from the country we all grew up in.

Your government has spawned a culture of fear and intimidation. Nearly every federal agency, including the Fish and Wildlife Service, has its own gun-toting police force to pistol-whip citizens into submission.

And we’re stocking up. Your government has recently procured 1.6 BILLION rounds of hollow-point ammunition to supplement our existing supplies.

But frankly, we don’t need guns to harass citizens.

Our tax authorities have become more threatening than mafia warlords. The plunder is so severe that record numbers of Americans are renouncing their citizenship and leaving the country.

There are now dozens of federal, state, and local agencies and courts which have the power to confiscate your assets without any due process.

In addition to your house, your business, and your savings, we also have the authority to take your children away from you as if they are property of the state.

We are here to tell you what you can and cannot put in your own body, or whether you can collect rainwater that falls on own property.

In fact, on any given business day, the federal government issues hundreds of pages of new ‘rules’, proposed regulations, draft bills, executive orders, and/or regulatory notices.

And if you are not compliant with these rules, you may be committing a crime. Whether you know it or not.

When this nation was founded, there were four federal crimes on the books. Today there are THOUSANDS. Plus we have millions of government employees at all levels to enforce the penalties.

All of this, of course, is financed by you the tax slave.

You (plus unborn generations) are the poor suckers charged with paying off the national debt we politicians have created….

No, this may not be the country that you all grew up in. But it is the state of our union… whatever remains of it.

SLC Man Arrested for Plot to Kill as Many as Possible in SLC Mall & Sugarhouse Movie Theater

City Creek

City Creek Mall

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? So sure am I on this one that I hesitate to even put question marks after the question about antidepressants being involved in this case!

Jack Harry Stiles, 42, is being held on a $1 Million bond after first telling an officer at a hospital that he was planning to kill as many as possible in a downtown mall and Sugarhouse movie theater on the anniversary of his mother’s death. He would “randomly kill people until he runs out of ammunition.” And he planned to set off a bomb under a city bus or Trax train, had mapped out both locations, had detailed plans, guns and ammunition, ect. plus of course a “history of mental illness.”

All those are clues and add to that the fact that he lives in “Prozacland” which everyone calls Utah where more antidepressants are used than just about anywhere else as they have led the way in use for two decades. How you lose your mother and not get on an antidepressant in Utah would be the real question here.

When these things are planned on the anniversary of a personal tragedy it is often indicative of the person going into REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) and acting out their recurring nightmares. Because antidepressants repress REM sleep they are known to produce both psychosis and RBD. In fact they are the leading common denominator in this diagnosis being found in 86% of the RBD cases – this most violent of sleep disorders where patients are known to commit both murder and suicide in a sleep state with 80% hurting themselves or others.

So would you like to take a guess where my daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren were planning on going this evening? You guessed it! That same movie theater! Would you also like to guess how many times I have warned them about going out to public places such as this in SLC? I think it has only been every time they have gone somewhere like this. Hopefully this has been close enough to home to convince them to get out of town now! But the problem is finding a safe place anywhere anymore with the widespread use of these drugs in our world.

Yale: 250,000 Yearly Hospitalized for Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis

With so many on these drugs and on the verge of going psychotic on them few places are safe any longer! Remember that researchers at Yale in 2001 found that 250,000 yearly were found in general hospital psych wards to have gone psychotic due to an antidepressant. Knowing how rare it is for a general doctor to catch these cases of antidepressant-induced psychosis the researchers pointed out that the actual figure of those going psychotic on antidepressants should be expected to be far higher than that quarter of a million per year figure. Is the figure double, triple, quadruple? Will we ever know?

How Many More Do Not Make It To A Hospital?

Obviously no one noticed the Trazadone induced psychosis in the Navy Yard shooter in time to get him into a psych ward and no one got James Holmes into a psych ward before he shot everyone at the Aurora theater last year. And no one noticed the antidepressant-induced psychosis in 68 out of 70 school shooters before they began shooting. (See list of school shootings & antidepressant involved in video format here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be and a written list can be found here: www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings )

And how many more are out there about to go psychotic on their medication or in withdrawal from their medication when it takes so little to trigger the psychosis? The FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can cause suicide, hostility, or psychosis. So that would be anyone starting or stopping an antidepressant without weaning VERY gradually up or down on them. It would also be anyone forgetting to take their pills for a day or two. And it would be anyone switching from one antidepressant to another because you would double your chances by going abruptly off one and starting abruptly on another. All of these scenarios carry a very dangerous potential for a psychotic break induced by the use of an antidepressant.

To better help you to understand this antidepressant-induced violence and psychosis I refer you to a section of my testimony before the FDA in their 2004 hearing on antidepressants and suicide:

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

The Problem: Low Serotonin Metabolism, Not Low Serotonin

“For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism 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.

“How anyone ever thought it would be “therapeutic” to chemically induce these reactions is beyond me. Yet, these reactions are exactly what we have witnessed in our society over the past decade and a half as a result of the widespread use of these drugs.

“In fact we even have a whole new vocabulary as a result with terms such as “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “murder/suicide,” “going postal,” “false memory syndrome,” “school shooting,” “bi-polar” – every third person you meet anymore – along with the skyrocketing rates of antidepressant-induced diabetes and hypoglycemia.

“Can you remember two decades ago when depressed people used to slip away quietly to kill themselves rather than killing everyone around them and then themselves as they do while taking SSRI antidepressants?

Excess Serotonin Produces Extreme Violence

“A study out of the University of Southern California in 1996 looked at a group of mutant mice in an experiment that had gone terribly wrong. These genetically engineered mice were the most violent creatures they had ever witnessed. They were born lacking the MAO-A enzyme which metabolizes serotonin. As a result their brains were awash in serotonin. This excess serotonin is what the researchers determined was the cause for this extreme violence. Antidepressants produce the same end result as they inhibit the metabolism of serotonin.”

 

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

10 YEARS AFTER BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE-MY RESPONSE TO MICHAEL MOORE

BowlingForColumbine

WHERE ARE WE 10 YEARS AFTER???

Michael Moore is asking everyone this Saturday to hold their own 10 year anniversary party of the opening of his movie Bowling for Columbine which of course blamed guns for the massacre at Columbine High School. But in the movie I did with him, The Drugging of Our Children (http://www.drugawareness.org/videos/the-drugging-of-our-children), he said all those reasons they came up with in his movie for the reason Columbine happened were BS. (Michael’s direct quote: http://www.drugawareness.org/articles/michael-moore-cause-of-columbine)

Yet now he is using his movie once again to promote gun control instead of taking the opportunity to give the world answers to what really is causing all these school shootings???? Why?

He should take the opportunity to tell the world the truth if he has the stage now to do that.

I encourage all of you to hold your own 10 year anniversary of Bowling for Columbine and use the following information I just wrote in a letter to Michael Moore to set the world straight on what REALLY happened at Columbine and the large majority of other school shootings!!! Watch Gary Null’s The Drugging of Our Children instead.

PLEASE SHARE THIS EVERYWHERE: your local news, internet, Facebook, radio, television, etc. There is no excuse for this “BS” as Michael called it to continue to be spread around since Pharma gives us enough BS on your nightly television about antidepressants to cover the planet!!

MY LETTER TO MICHAEL MOORE

“Michael I would be more than happy to join you on that panel March 23, but have not received my invitation. Yet as you know I have been tracking the school shootings and testifying in those cases more than any one individual I know of worldwide.

MICHAEL MOORE SAYS ALL CAUSES GIVEN FOR COLUMBINE IN HIS MOVIE WERE BS

“When you and I did the movie together, The Drugging Of Our Children by Gary Null, after you read my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?, you CLEARLY stated that ALL the reasons you looked at in your movie Bowling for Columbine as the cause for the tragedy were BS.

You went on to say that the only reason that made any sense for this violence were the antidepressants given to these kids. Your direct quote: http://www.drugawareness.org/articles/michael-moore-cause-of-columbine

ANTIDEPRESSANTS HAVE WARNINGS FOR SUICIDE AND HOMICIDE

“Antidepressants have warnings for both suicidal and homicidal ideation and the FDA warnings indicate those reactions to be at almost double the rate for those under the age of 25. That is not just killing yourself or someone else but having persistant ruminating thoughts of both suicide and homicide, along with the same persistant thoughts of various methods of killing – thoughts Eric complained of within only weeks after first being placed on Zoloft. Putting a gun in his hand is NOT what produced those thoughts, but a drug did, and the drugs even carry a warning that they can produce that!!

With only me and a couple of others working to gather these cases over the past two decades out of 70 school shootings we have had 68 school shooters on antidepressants … you know this has to be only the tip of the iceberg. Seems pretty simple math at this point! List of shootings & meds: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings And here is the same list of school shootings in a video version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=player_embedded

IT IS NOT THE GUNS, IT IS THE ANTIDEPRESSANTS!

“It is NOT the guns! It is the drugs! If they do not reach for guns, they reach for knives, hammers, hatchets, bows and arrows, bombs, fire, poison … anything imaginable. The compulsion to kill is overwhelming when produced by these drugs.

“You have the knowledge now Michael and are in the position to do something to set this straight. I hope you have the integrity to do so. Lives are at stake…so many lives that I cannot even begin to keep up with the tragedies that flood in daily! Those who died at Sandy Hook are FAR FROM ALONE! The death toll in these other cases may not be quite as high in each individual case, but when there are so many of them, the accumulating death toll is astounding.

TAKING ON THE NRA OR PHARMA?

“Taking on the NRA is like taking on a kitten in comparrison to taking on Pharma as Columbine victim Mark Taylor in your movie Bowling for Columbine has done. He was the only one who did not back down from them when warned by the drug company what would happen if anyone dared to sue them. http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/school-shooter-victim-join-forces

“Do you know where he is now Michael? Do you know what payback can be like when you really go after the Big Boys? Maybe you need to call me for an update because it is NOT pretty!”

A SCHOOL SHOOTER SPEAKS OUT – WHY I TOOK A GUN TO SCHOOL…

And here is the only school shooter to speak out I am aware of telling his own experience to help us understand what is causing school shootings:

BOOK TESTIMONIALS:

“Very bold & informative”

“Priceless information that is giving me back to me”

“The absolute best reference for antidepressant drugs”

“Well documented & scientifically researched”

““I was stunned at the amount of research Ann Tracy has done on this subject. Few researchers go to as much trouble aggressively gathering information on the adverse reactions of Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRIs.”

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

“I’m so thankful for AnnTracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!” … Antoinette Beck

I just have to put this out there… I just finished listening to the Ann Blake-Tracy’ s talk about getting off antidepressants. I cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am for the information provided! Not only for my son but myself, I have suffered terrible migraines from muscle stiffness, teeth grinding and difficulty sleeping and guess what… I was put on Zoloft for MILD postpartum depression almost 5 years ago. I was told it was better to just stay on it while pregnant with my 3rd child and then for awhile after, just for precaution, after all I was having no side effects and it is safe. My youngest in now 2. While my gut told me it was wrong for my son to be medicated I never considered this was the cause for my own pain that seems to be worsening. I guess the drug had just become part of my routine because of being on it for so long. Now we will wean off together. The information given here is so valuable and life changing. Once again….Thank you!…Amanda Briar

CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta THE LINK BETWEEN ANTIDEPRESSANTS & SCHOOL SHOOTINGS

 

SanjayGupta

CNN’s DR. SANJAY GUPTA

THE LINK BETWEEN ANTIDEPRESSANTS & SCHOOL SHOOTINGS

Thanks to Tony DeGirolamo with CultureShockTV.com (who has long trumpted these issues surrounding antidepressant dangers) for bringing this CNN news piece to our attention.

In about 2003 Dr. Sanjay Gupta and I, Ann Blake Tracy, did an interview on the subject of children & antidepressants. After telling me how much he liked the title of my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? he then began to ask questions about these drugs. Although I do not think he expected to hear the answers I gave and the hard facts I had about the problems with the hypothesis behind the drugs he did listen with an open mind – the most obvious trait of a real scientist.

After watching the news piece below on the recent tragic shooting of small children in Connecticut you will see that Dr. Gupta has now clearly connected the dots between these SSRI antidepressants and violence – especially with the school shootings.

For CNN to come out with such a strong piece linking antidepressants to violence is a huge breakthrough in my opinion! I appreciate Dr. Gupta for his open mind and willingness to learn something that seems to go so contrary to what the world has been led to believe about the safety of antidepressants. And I also very much appreciate his integrity in bringing this issue to the public because this is most certainly a public safety issue! The safety issue becomes more than obvious when you look at our database of cases (with 66 school shootings posted already & another three to be added) found at www.drugawareness.ssristories.com
