And here is an interesting & inspiring note from Karol, author of the incredible book I have LONG recommended, “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die.”
“What an amazing accomplishment for those who did this!!! It literally brings tears to my eyes…if this doesn’t remind Americans how very grateful & appreciative we ought to be for our country, I don’t know what will. May God bless us all….
With humility, gratitude, blessings & love,
4th of July memories & our family’s Robert Redford connection
This will help you to understand why I always say that every family or someone close to them has been negatively affected by an antidepressant whether they know that yet or not.
Every 4th of July my children & I spent watching the largest Independence Day parade in America on Center Street in Provo, Utah with our dear friends Frank & Phyllis Van Waggenen, parents of Robert Redford’s now ex-wife, Lola Van Waggenen,
Everyone would gather on Frank & Phyllis’ front porch or front lawn. We always knew we would have the perfect spot waiting for us there & be able to visit with all our friends as well. And Robert & Lola & their children would often be there as well.
In the Fall of 1991, not long after returning from the first FDA farse of a hearing on Prozac, I got a short note in the mail from Phyllis. She was writing to thank me for the copy my first booklet on Prozac, The Prozac Pandora, which I had recently left at their door when I did not find them at home. The note said they were so grateful for the information from the book because it “helped them to understand what they had been through during the past year”.
Of course upon receiving that message, with great concern, I immediately called Frank and Phyllis to make sure they and their family were okay. Phyllis began to share with me their own Prozac nightmare.
She explained that while visiting New Orleans for the Marti Gra she and Frank were attacked near their hotel & Frank’s watch was stolen. In the attack Frank was hit in the head and had to be hospitalized there for a concussion.
[Keep in mind that someone who has had a head injury should never be given an antidepressant. Wellbutrin was the only antidepressant with strong warnings of this in 1991. This was also an issue that affected Roseanne Barr while on Prozac since as a teen she had been hit by a car & suffered a serious head injury when the hood ornament was imbeded in her forehead!]
Then not long after they returned home to Utah Frank, within a very short period lost five friends to death. (When you are elderly that does begin to happen. It is normal but never easy, especially when multiplied by five!) But rather than look at it as a normal process of life, their doctor immediately put Frank on Prozac to cope with the loss of so many friends in such a short time.
Within only one week on Prozac Frank was diagnosed with Rapid Onset Alzheimer’s. The facility issuing the diagnosis let the family know that they wanted to commit him to a long term facility.
Luckily their daughter, Lola Van Wagenen Redford, put her foot down and refused, She asked them instead to take him off the Prozac.
They refused. And when she told them the family wanted to take him home and take him off the drug themselves the facility wished them luck in getting him off Prozac! (This was in 1991 and after only one week on the drug! Clearly those doctors had already learned the extremely addictive qualities of this mother drug of all the SSRI and SNRI antidepressants & their withdrawal from hell if you do not know how to very slowly wean off these drugs!)
But Lola was right & the family was able to get Frank off the drug safely & he miraculously recovered from his “rapid onset Alzheimers”! The only long term effect that stayed with him was that he never did regain any recall for that one week’s time he was on Prozac. All memory of that was gone for him.
But after two decades of leading the nation in the use of the Prozac family of antidepressants, Utah gained the number two spot for leading the nation in Alzheimers cases in 2009! Obviously it is long overdue that Utah, the nation and the world wake up to the connection between Alzheimers, as is the case with autism and Bipolar, all are conditions of elevated serotonin levels. Utah is also the antidepressant, ice cream and jello capital of the nation, & they are home of the sugar beet industry – all of which increase serotonin levels. So it should be no surprise that Utah has some of the highest rates of Alzheimers, autism and Bipolar nationwide.
Remember that with the serotonergic diet pills Fen-Phen & Redux it was the elevated serotonin that produced the gummy gooey glossy substance to build up on heart valves. They now have research demonstrating that in Alzheimers there is a gummy, gooey, glossy substance that builds,
SSRI antidepressants affect memory so strongly that “amnesia” is listed as a “frequent” side effect.
My son Mark Taylor was shot 6 – 13 times at Columbine High School April 20, 1999 and almost died. The hospital doctor called his family physician & said, “I have one of your patients here. He is dead but he is talking to me.” The media dubbed him the “Columbine Wonder Boy” after surviving such life threatening injuries.
We filed suit against the antidepressant maker for causing Eric Harris to suffer the now listed side effect of “homicidal ideation” to cause him to shoot Mark & his classmates that day. Our hope was to stop this from happening again. So we went on to continue lecturing about the dangers of these drugs. Mark gave a very powerful testimony before the FDA in their 2004 hearings which resulted in Black Box warnings issued for increased suicide in children given these drugs. The FDA panel was so moved by his words they even stepped down to shake his hand.
Sadly his attorney ruined his case by not meeting discovery. So the minute Mark turned 21 he was railroaded into a surprise “settlement” where he was pressured into signing a settlement agreement that the drug maker would pay $10,000 to a charity of Mark’s choice! Mark got nothing for the damage he suffered & on top of that was led to believe if he did not sign that settlement he would have to go to jail!
Not long after we believe the drug makers set Mark up with false accusations to have him thrown into a psychiatrict hospital where the doctor in charge even told us there was no reason for him to be there. He had suddenly gone from being a Whistle Blower exposing the Anti Depressant involvement in school & mass shootings to a patient being forced to take the same drugs he was speaking out against!
Look up Mark Taylor Columbine and see all written. Now he is in a group home being drugged and wants out. He does not belong there & is very sick from all the drug side effects. He has rashes, shaking, vomiting, tired all the time, poor memory, & has little time to do much. I visit him weekly & the people in charge there are not the least bit friendly & never answer the phone for us to even check on him. I am very concerned about him & his current condition.
In order for you to see what has been done to him here is Mark being interviewed just before all this & then after they started drugging him with the same drugs he was fighting to expose…

Documentary on Mark’s Fight For Columbine…
Well over a decade later Mark is on social security with little income for necessities. I am now retired & his father is very ill & in an assisted living facility. We have found an attorney to help Mark get out of there, to put an end to this Columbine nightmare that has seemed to never end for us, & finally live the rest of his life with his mother & his brothers. But we need financial help for the legal paperwork to set him free. We would greatly appreciate any help to get this done.
The driver on Dodi and Diana’s fatal last journey should probably not have been behind the wheel at all that night.
The jury’s verdict placed much of the responsibility for the crash on him, more perhaps than even the coroner had suggested in his summing up.
My main focus in writing my book on antidepressants was to wake up doctors to the problems in the serotonin hypothesis & the dangers of antidepressants to stop them from prescribing SSRI antidepressants & help loved ones to see what these drugs were doing to their family members.
The cravings for alcohol was what first caught my attention & got me to start researching these drugs, shouting warnings about them & writing my book on them now titled, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
I was in the perfect place to see the alcohol cravings…Utah where most were non-drinkers. I had two good friends, neither of which ever knew one another, but both had a prescription for Prozac and very much out of character for both, were drinking alcohol heavily. Both aware of my background in studying health for years knew something was wrong & began repeatingly asking me to look into Prozac. Both were active members of the LDS Church which has a strict health code when it comes to mind altering substances including alcohol.
I had understood for years what Dr. James Milam, author of the best seller, “Under The Influence” had also figured out which is that alcoholism is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). It is the body’s way of pushing an individual in an attempt to balance sugar levels in order to prevent additional loss of brain cells. Physicians are taught to watch closely for any medications which may be affecting blood sugar because of that potential deadly negative impact upon the brain.
When I finally heard the extreme concern in the voices of both friends I stopped by a local pharmacy & picked up a package insert for Prozac & there it was clear as day in black & white. Both hypoglycemia & diabetes had been reported with the drug. My friends were having hypogycemic reactions to Prozac causing them to reach for alcohol to bring their blood sugar back up! The problem is that although alcohol will bring the sugar level back up quickly, it rebounds dropping the sugar even lower causing the person to crave more & more & more. (The sugar connection is very easy to see if you watch a group of people trying to get sober from alcohol because they are eating sugar, sugar, sugar & more sugar to compensate for what the alcohol was doing.) Of course both alcohol & sugar are the wrong way to go to balance sugar. Several years later Dr. Milam & I connected & of course were very supportive of one another. His work was wonderfully spot on as his clinic was having almost ZERO recidivism by putting people with alcohol issues on a hypoglycemic diet.
So after working with the French police on a very high profile murder/suicide case in France in the early 1990’s I did not hesitate to call the police in Paris. I let them know that in the crash that killed Dodi Fayed & Princess Di they had a driver who must be on Prozac to cause him to drink so heavily that night as to have an over three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. I told them the clues were clear & detailed those for them below:
#1 His parents were adamant that Henri Paul was a non-drinker & the authorities must have someone else’s blood, yet Henri Paul was drinking so heavily that they had given him a drug like antabuse to help him stop.
#2 He also did not appear drunk which is common when on an antidepressant.
#3 He had excessive amounts of alcohol in his system – over three times the legal limit!
#4 Antidepressants are notorious for causing mania/bipolar. In fact when Prozac was first introduced psychiatrists refused to prescribe it because it so rapidly produced mania. But what most are completely unaware of is that one form of mania, “dipsomania,” is described as having “overwhelming cravings for alcohol”!
#5 And the following I was not aware of until this past year when I first saw the attached photo of Henri Paul taken moments before the fatal crash.
In that photo Henri Paul had what has long been called “Prozac eyes” indicating he was at a toxic level of this drug & going off the deep end & becoming very impulsive.
As I often point out people on these antidepressants do not have a meter reader on their foreheads which will flash the warning “Toxic Level” when the serotonin is too high.
The police listened to me explain all this & then checked to find within the week that Henri Paul was indeed on Prozac. That of course explained the compulsions he was having to drink alcohol which were out of character for him. The French authorities announced his Prozac use in Paris the day before the University of Oslo introduced my data on antidepressants causing these overwhelming cravings for alcohol.
Sadly no one paid much attention to that in the news of what happened that fateful night or I have no doubt there would have been a wrongful death suit filed against Eli Lilly!
I have little doubt Pharma helped create all the various conspiracy theories around that crash to distract from the fact the driver was drugged out of his mind & on their most popular drug – a drug that caused him to drink heavily which was totally out of character for him.
Eli Lilly was already working to rebuild their tarnished image in France after French investigators had determined that in the horrific murder/suicide case I had worked with them on there was no guilt of the young man who did the killing of his German fiancee & himself, but it was instead the terrible outcome of the use of the American drug Prozac! Their headline news ran the story that way! I am sure they did not want the negative publicity of the press pointing out that Princess Di’s driver was driven to drink by the American drug, Prozac!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such press herein America?! This nightmare would likely have ended LONG AGO if the press had told the truth in all the following tragic outcomes: SSRIstories.net
As you read this article please do not just take it at face value but out of respect for the children who just lost their lives & both parents whose lives have just been completely shattered by this tragedy … learn from this & share with others so that their loss will prevent others from such suffering! There are two major issues here that few are aware of & should know.
First you will see a classic Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). You can also find our Facebook group for under that exact same name for this reaction. Or for more detailed information on it there is a full chapter discussing it in my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! available on our main website Drugawareness.org
The world’s two leading researchers on this most deadly of all sleep disorders, Dr. Carlos Schenck & Dr. Mark Mahwald found in the late 90’s that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD were currently taking an antidepressant. Considering the widespread use of these drugs around the world such a significant finding of as deadly a reaction to antidepressants not only should have been added to the package inserts for these drugs right then but should also have made headline news worldwide! As far as I am aware the only two newspapers to ever address this was the New York Times & the Kansas City Star. Of course the drug makers have never yet warned. Show me anyone who was warned when first prescribed an antidepressant that it could make you act out your worst nightmare in a sleepwalk state while taking it out while in withdrawal from it! Because before this RBD was known as a drug withdrawal reaction. This is how we knew that coming down very slowly to avoid withdrawal would be the only safe way to avoid that deadly reaction. But as far as I am aware no one has gone on to study RBD in the withdrawal of antidepressants.
Secondly another serious consideration in this case is that of race. The reason race plays a part here is that of safety testing. We know that the antidepressant, Paxil, was not tested for safety among the Asian population & many others which information you can find from one if the first cases I worked which you can find here: LINK: Asian: Father Drowns Two Children: Kills Self: Lawsuit https://ssristories.net/archive/showd828.html?item=945
This is extremely critical safety information for MANY!
The woman accused of murdering her children on Saturday said she woke up with blood on her hands with no memory of what happened, according to a Tempe police statement.
During an interview with police, 40-year-old Yui Inoue said that she went to bed and woke up at around 4:30 a.m. with blood on her hands and her two children dead near the doorway of the bedroom, according to the statement
When the Columbine massacre happened 22 years ago today I naively thought it would have been shocking enough & the cause obvious enough to wake the world to this drug-induced nightmare of mass shootings. But over two decades later we have just finished a 5 week period where at least 46 people have died in mass shootings here in America. We already have almost enough evidence to link antidepressants to everyone of those killings.
One who has fought this battle for the truth behind this nightmare for all the school shooting victims is Mark Taylor. Mark was dubbed the “Columbine Wonder Boy” by the Colorado media after surviving 6 – 13 bullets from Eric Harris’ gun that day as he & his friends sat discussing scriptures on Columbine’s front lawn. After arriving at the hospital the attending doctor called Mark’s family physician & said, “I have one of your patients here. He is dead but he is talking to me!”
Mark & his mother asked me to help them as an expert in his case filed against the makers of Luvox (Who are now attempting to gain approval of Luvox for treatment of Covid 19!!!!) We traveled, lectured, & did media nationwide on these drugs for years, until Mark gained too much attention when he gave a very powerful testimony before the FDA in the 2004 hearing on antidepressants increasing suicide in children.
I firmly believe at that point Pharma decided it was payback time for Mark speaking out. They apparently felt they had not brought in enough money on these drugs, nor screwed up enough lives around the world as yet with the drugs, so they moved to shut both of us up in any way they could.
What I went through was nothing in comparison to what Mark has been made to suffer. First his court case was destroyed by his attorney not meeting a deadline. Then the drug maker, in conjunction with it appears to be his new attorney (an ex-Pharma attorney professing a change of heart in representing Pharma), called a surprise settlement hearing as soon as Mark had his 21st birthday. He was made to believe he would go to jail if he did not sign their proposed settlement offer which gave Mark nothing but a promise that the drug maker would pay $10,000 to a charity of his choice! Mark chose a cancer charity, which would, of course, go right back into Pharma’s pocket!
Mark’s mother who was on the lawsuit with him had not even been allowed into the room for the settlement but was outside the doors with Denver Post reporter Howard Pancratz for most of the day waiting for Mark. I even spoke with the attorney over the phone to point out that legally Mark could not sign the settlement because he laid outside Columbine for 1 1/2 hours bleeding to death from those 6-13 bullet holes in him. With that much blood loss you have brain damage from the loss of oxygen to the brain resulting in a set back in brain development. That technically would ha e made Mark more like an 18 or 19 year old in his judgement when by law you must be 21. But they did it anyway.
Then they got someone to accuse him falsely of making a threat when he went to a Borders Book store near his home to check on sales of his book. That got him put in a psych hospital where he was placed on the same drugs he had been testifying against for years! That was even though the head of that facility, a psychiatrist we knew, understood there was no reason for him to be there or to be “medicated”! Since then he has been moved from one place to another in Colorado & Arizona. They have now had him on the drugs for 12 years he was fighting against! Sadly our world has a history of doing this to whistle blowers but we also have laws about the illegality of doing so!

Here is Mark before & after what they have done to him…
TODAY, THE 22ND ANNIVERSARY OF COLUMBINE, THE TRUTH STILL CRIES OUT TO BE HEARD!!!!!
HERE WE SIT WITH 46 DEAD IN THE LAST 5 WEEKS IN MASS SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA. AND INDICATIONS & CONFIRMATIONS OF THE USE OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS IN NEARLY EVERYONE OF THOSE CASES!
To help you understand how Pharma works here is a statement from one of the five families that backed out of the lawsuit Columbine survivor Mark Taylor ended up filing alone after they were all told that if they did not win the drug maker would take everything they had.
“Coni Sanders, daughter of Dave Sanders, the slain teacher, said what happened at the Colorado high school changed everything and yet nothing.
“I feel like we have come so far in so many ways, yet we’re still stuck in the same spot,” she said. “I never imagined that we would be where we’re at right now, where there are so many mass shootings that we can’t even keep up … it’s just unfathomable that Columbine wasn’t enough.”
Society needs to wake up, join together with all the families of all these shootings & stand up & tell Pharma this has to end!

SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause
Posted on October 12, 2015 by Ann Blake-Tracy | 2 Comments
Because so many are posting our database of cases of school shootings on Facebook with no explanation of the antidepressant connection, I thought I should post it here on our website as a blog so that it is easier to share with others when yet another school violence episode erupts so they too will have this information to share and educate others about the involvement of antidepressants in school shootings.
1999 PHARHARMACIST STATEMENT ON ANTIDEPRESSANTS & SCHOOL SHOOTINGS
In about 2000 I was contacted by a pharmacist who said the nicest woman in town had come regularly to get her prescription of Prozac from him until she went to prison for killing her husband. This was one message I received from him that I think the whole world needs to hear……
“The symptoms I see in patients who use/abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over-confidence in one’s 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 abuser’s 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 individual’s 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!”
Another mass shooting with nine more confirmed dead this morning in Indianapolis where it all began with Eli Lilly & their introduction of the first ssri, prozac…
Find below the evidence antidepressants are the cause for all this violence.
UPDATE: Indianapolis FedEx shooting was yet another medication-induced mass murder/suicide. Look at this history to see he was arrested for being suicidal a year ago for planning a suicide by cop…
“Police identified the suspect in a shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility as 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole of Indiana. Police said Friday afternoon that Hole was last an employee at the facility in 2020. It’s unclear whether he quit or was terminated from the job.
“Investigators are searching a home in Indianapolis associated with Hole and have seized evidence, including desktop computers and other electronic media, the officials told The Associated Press.
“It remains unclear why Hole shot and killed the eight workers at the facility near Indianapolis International Airport. But this was not the first time he’d encountered police.
“Indianapolis police had confiscated a gun and took Hole into custody last year following suicide threats. An IMPD report from March 3, 2020, references a mental health check for suicidal tendencies and lists Hole as being arrested. Hole had purchased a gun and talked about suicide by police, a situation in which a person prompts police to kill them, according to the report.”
Here is the evidence we have posted on our main website DrugAwareness.org explaining it all…
SCHOOL & MASS SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause
MASS SHOOTINGS: Ann Blake-Tracy will be the guest on the Jeff Rense Show tonight discussing the last two major shootings in Atlanta. Georgia & in Boulder, Colorado. The show will be on ASAP at 8:00 PM Pacific Time.
If you go www.rense.com you can find several ways to listen in or this is the link to listen live online:
And if you go to this post on our main website on school & mass shootings you can pull up all the scientific documentation on these shootings being caused by the antidepressants or in dropping off the drugs too rapidly…
I go from one mass shooting to another weekly now with no time to even think about posting all the children being killed by their parents or other family members on these drugs while no one seems to care enough to call those who should be reporting the truth about the killings to us. Why do I feel like I am the only one demanding they report the truth? So now 10 more people have lost their lives this week on top of the 8 in Atlanta last week.
But never fear the FBI is here on the scene in Boulder! Always willing to rush right in & spin another story about the “why” this tragedy happened in order to divert any focus on the drugs which always seem to be behind everyone of these shootings – antidepressants. Wonder what we will hear this one was triggered by? Wonder how far fetched this one will sound – just like we are suppose to believe the one in Atlanta last week was an Asian Hate Crime. We would certainly not want to listen to the shooter try to explain openly & then talk about his “treatment” for sexual addiction. That “trearment” has long been the use of antidepressants & the forced viewing of porn to see how aroused they get while viewing now would we? Sure the antidepressants are notorious for causing mania & one type of mania is nymphomania (uncontrollable sexual compulsions) but their must be another reason we could blame this on….oh yes, how about an Asain hate crime?
I will be waiting to hear about Boulder tomorrow morning to learn what we are suppose to believe the trigger for this one was.
The shooter this afternoon at the grocery store in Boulder, CO said nothing before beginning to shoot as he walked in wearing only shorts. Yet another SSRI-induced Zombie acting out another nightmare in a sleepwalk state we call REM Sleep Disorder which 86% of those suffering that RBD reaction are on an antidepressant? And if it is will the media focused on protecting their advertising $$$$ ever tell us? Or will anyone else down the line with a vested interest claiming to be seeking for justice for those who lost their lives ever tell us? I know after 3 decades of tracking these cases it is sadly extremely rare for the truth to come out!
To someone asking about the Michael Moore movie “Bowling for Columbine” …
There is a far better movie you can watch which is much more informative. It also has Columbine Survivor, Mark Taylor, in it (he was in both movies) as well as Michael Moore. Interestingly Michael Moore will tell you in this movie that his movie is pretty much just BS while this one makes more sense in finding the answers to why Columbine happened.
This movie gives a lot of insight as it has an interview with a young man, Corey Baadsgard, who almost became a school shooter after holding his classmates at gunpoint for 45 minutes & spending 17 months behind bars for that. This is the only school shooter to ever speak out that I know of in order to explain what happened & why. The movie is free online, done by Gary Null, a friend/neighbor of Michael Moore. I will post the link for you here & links to a couple of clips to preview it for you. It is called “The Drugging of Our Children”
And as you read through these links keep in mind that these antidepressants work like a slow fuse LSD or PCP. Those two drugs (now illegal) produce hallucinations/psychosis by increasing serotonin…exactly what they have told the world is the cure for depression, anxiety, & about everything else that ails you! The biggest lie in medicine!
