Human rights Group Speaks Out About Tom Cruise Speaking Out

Human rights Group Speaks Out About Tom Cruise Speaking Out

Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) September 3, 2005

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a psychiatric watchdog group, said Tom Cruise’s remarks on NBC’s Today Show recently represent a growing public awareness about the national crisis of children and adults being prescribed damaging mind-altering drugs.

Brian Beaumont, President of the British Columbia chapter of CCHR said, “The Today Show interview was a warning that people need to be beware of psychiatry and its purported research rather than accepting at face value concepts such as a chemical imbalance in the brain causing their problems, which can deny them real help”.

To back up their claims, CCHR released a video documentary on their website, , that includes prominent doctors, neurologists and psychiatrists debunking the hoax of mental disorders being physically based or the result of a chemical imbalance.

“The ‘chemical imbalance’ theory, popularized by marketing, is no more than psychiatric wishful thinking,” Beaumont said. It has been thoroughly discredited by researchers, doctors and scientists. The only reason it exists is that it makes it easier for psychiatrists to label and drug vulnerable and often desperate individuals including helpless little children. It is driven by more than $ 23 billion in drug sales each year.”

Based on this false chemical imbalance theory, millions of people have fallen prey to damaging psychiatric practices: stimulants and antidepressants have induced teenagers to go on murderous shooting sprees (9 out of 13 school shootings, such as the Columbine High School shooting in 1999, were committed by teens on psychiatric drugs). A 14 year old boy shot two children, killing one, at W.R.Myers High School in Taber, Alberta. He was seeing a psychiatrist who prescribed him Dexedrine just prior to the shooting.

Hundreds of thousands of Canadian children and teens have been prescribed SSRIs, or selective seritonin reuptake inhibitors, and other newer antidepressants for an ever-growing array of bogus illnesses including anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and social phobia. At least five teenagers in Canada have died, four of suicide, while being treated with the most widely prescribed antidepressants in Canada and at least 100 other children as young as 18 months old have experienced serious suspected adverse reactions to the pills.

For 14 years, CCHR, which was established by the Church of Scientology, has been warning people of the psychiatric industry’s penchant for wholesale labelling and drugging of young people for profit, most recently made obvious in BC by posters, fliers, bus ads and a festival stigmatizing normal teenage experience as a “mental disorder”. Last October, the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. ordered a “black box” label for antidepressants that the drugs could cause suicide. Health Canada has taken similar measures. But these reforms are not enough to curb what CCHR says is a “national crisis” of child drugging and psychotropic drug abuse.

“Psychiatrists are society’s biggest drug pushers,” Beaumont says. “People do suffer from serious mental difficulties or life-crippling problems and their methods of coping with this can fail. Psychiatrists exploit this, marketing drugs for conditions they admit they do not know the cause of or cannot cure. Fraud involves intentional deception or deliberate misrepresentation to secure money, rights or privilege. CCHR is helping Canadians wake up to this psychiatric fraud.”

Creighton Explores Ethics Of Using Human Tissue For Research

Creighton Explores Ethics Of Using Human Tissue For Research

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) August 18, 2011

When you have blood taken for a test or have tissue removed for a biopsy, it may be used for medical research. While there are clear benefits to such research, medical and health care professionals need to be aware of cultural and confidentiality concerns on the part of patients.

Members of the Creighton University faculty and others will present on those topics as part of “The Use of Human Tissue and Public Trust: The Chasm Between Science and Ethics,” an upcoming conference sponsored by Creighton’s Center for Health Policy and Ethics (CHPE) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Research Integrity.

The conference will take place Monday, Sept. 19, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., in the Ahmanson Ballroom at Creighton’s Harper Center, 602 N. 20 St., in Omaha. It is free and open to the public. Registration is online at

The conference is designed to expand awareness about the importance of weighing the benefits of knowledge derived from tissue research against such issues as cultural traditions and beliefs; exploring the concept of trust among patients, especially from the perspectives of populations vulnerable to exploitation or marginalization; and identifying gaps in communication and understanding between the science community and the public regarding the use of human tissue. The event is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, health care educators, public health professionals, medical students, and members of the public.

CHPE Professor John R. Stone, M.D., Ph.D. will give a presentation on “Ethical Issues – Trust and Trustworthiness, Dispelling Myths.” Stone has often focused on social justice in his work, particularly health inequalities that affect minority populations. Other Creighton faculty members involved in the conference include CHPE Director Amy Haddad, Ph.D., the Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Endowed Chair in the Health Sciences, who is the primary organizer of the conference, and Donald Frey, M.D., vice president for health sciences, who will welcome attendees.

“The conference speakers are top scholars and researchers in health care ethics and related fields, and we are really honored to host them at the conference,” said Dr. Haddad. “In addition, the agenda is packed with sessions that will cover cutting-edge topics in the field. Attendees will come away with so much more understanding of this complex, sensitive, and challenging issue, which is increasingly prominent in health care.”

The Center for Health Care Policy and Ethics is home of Creighton’s Master of Science in Health Care Ethics, which is offered entirely online. The interdisciplinary program educates students who must deal with bioethics as part of their duties (such as physicians, nurses, public health workers, attorneys, and chaplains) on the various issues and factors involved in the field, giving them greater ability to explain, justify and analyze ethical decisions in health care.
