Another Inquiry Into Psychiatry’s Drugs Prescribed for Invented Disorders

Research, conducted by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights a psychiatric watchdog group established by the Church of Scientology, showed that in only the past two years 18 government warnings by five different countries including Switzerland, England, Canada, the US and Europe have been issued on the previously undisclosed dangers of psychiatric drugs citing side effects of drug dependence, addiction, mania, hostility, aggression, psychosis, suicide and violence.

The latest issue against psychiatry’s drugs came from Health Canada, recently, which warned of heart risks for all drugs used for the made-up “disease” known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The warnings include a risk of sudden death. The mind altering drugs are the most widely prescribed drugs to Canadian children and, according to a public advisory, can increase heart rate and blood pressure.

Brian Beaumont, President of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights stated, “The fact is, there is nothing in any medical or scientific literature that confirms the existence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It was invented by a handful of psychiatrists by a show of hands at an American Psychiatric Association meeting in the 80’s. Thus, psychiatrists are labeling and drugging a non-existent malady which is an indictable offence, fraud and child abuse.”

The health agency has made the safety labels and prescribing information stronger on the psychiatric drugs: Adderall XR, Concerta, Dexedrine, Ritalin and Ritalin SR and Strattera, as well as Attenade and Biphentin, two drugs that are not yet available in Canada.

More than 1.9 million prescriptions for the stimulants were filled by Canadian retail drugstores in the 12 months ending April 30, 2006, according to health research firm IMS Health. An estimated three million U.S. children and 1.5 million adults are on psycho-stimulants.

One prevailing psychiatric theory (key to psychotropic drug and amphetamine type drug sales) is that mental disorders result from a chemical imbalance in the brain. As with this and psychiatry’s other theories, there is no biological or other evidence to prove them. Representative of a large group of medical and biochemistry experts, Elliot Valenstein, Ph.D., author of Blaming the Brain says: “There are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain.”

There have been 25 reports in the U.S. of children and adults who died suddenly between 1999 and 2003 after taking one of the drugs, including a 13-year-old boy who died within one hour of receiving his first dose. An autopsy revealed he had a heart disorder.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights. For more information and a complete list of recent government inquiries go to http://www. cchr.org.

Psychiatry’s Drugs Under The Gun; Dangerous Drugs Given For Bogus ‘Illnesses’

Psychiatry’s Drugs Under The Gun; Dangerous Drugs Given For Bogus ‘Illnesses’










Vancouver (PRWEB) October 3, 2005

The psychiatric amphetamine type drug Adderall which was banned from the Canadian market in February 2005 and then allowed back on the market in August, is now to be reviewed again according to a spokesperson for Health Canada.

Adderall was originally banned six months ago because of a string of 20 sudden deaths of children and adults on the medication, as well as some strokes. But because of an unprecedented decision, it was put back on the Canadian market and allowed to be unleashed on young children again.

According to Health Canada, Strattera, another of psychiatry’s drugs given to young children will have new warning labels cautioning that the drug may cause suicidal thoughts.

Thus, psychiatrists are labeling and drugging a non-existent malady which is an indictable offence, fraud and child abuse.”.

Other drugs, which are prescribed by psychiatrists to children said to be suffering from one of their trumped- up disorders, to be reviewed by Health Canada, are Concerta, Dexadrine, Ritalin and Attenade.

“For a disease to exist there must be a tangible, objective physical abnormality that can be determined by a test,’ says neurologist Dr. Fred Baughman. Such as, but not limited to, a blood or urine test, X-Ray, brain scan or biopsy. All reputable doctors would agree: No physical abnormality, no disease. In psychiatry, no test or brain scan exists to prove that a ‘mental disorder’ is a physical disease.”

“Psychiatrists make normal childhood behavior over into some kind of nebulous “mental problem” and then subsequently drug the made up illnesses for profit – the drug which was concocted by a drug company, psychiatry’s natural ally. Although drug companies are guilty of the most horrific crimes in this scenario, the psychiatrists are the real despicable culprits who are perpetrating this giant hoax on society thereby ruining countless children’s lives and denying them a chance at a good drug free future”, said Beaumont.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) was established by the Church of Scientology in 1969. In 1991 CCHR blew the whistle on the suicidal and violent effects of the first of the SSRI antidepressants. In light of the latest studies and banning of psychiatry’s drugs and the volume of evidence about the dangers of these drugs, prescribing psychiatrists and any company or psychiatric association promoting the safety of these drugs should be held accountable for patient suicides and deaths.

Psychiatry?s Claims of Childhood Disorders False And Unsubstantiated

Psychiatry’s Claims of Childhood Disorders False And Unsubstantiated










(PRWEB) October 9, 2005

Members of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights are challenging psychiatry’s statement that 140,000 British Columbia children have some sort of “mental disorder” by calling it fraudulent, an attempt to cash in at the expense of vulnerable and helpless little children and an effort to seduce well meaning teachers, parents, government officials and others into believing their trumped-up “disorders” actually exist.

Psychiatric leaders themselves admit that they do not know how the mind works or how to help with mental difficulties. Past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, “The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness.

Since last October, official warnings of the side effects of psychiatric drugs by regulatory agencies worldwide have escalated rapidly – sixteen in the last twelve months alone – culminating in a September 2005 landmark report by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, which issued a strong warning against false labeling of youth with the psychiatric diagnosis of “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” (ADHD) and its treatment with powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

CCHR has published a new White Paper, summarizing the past year’s official warnings and providing recommendations to protect the public health from further harm. It can be viewed at their website.

Psychiatry’s drugs of choice for Attention Deficit Disorder ( ADHD), one of their invented “illnesses”, came under fire last month when Health Canada asked all the makers of drugs used for ADHD to submit data from all clinical trials and post-marketing reports by the end of 2005. The data will be examined following it’s submission in the new year. The drugs that will be reviewed are Concerta, Adderall XR, Dexadrine, Ritalin and Attenade; drugs which are given to children for ADHD.

The psychiatric amphetamine type drug Adderall which was banned from the Canadian market in February 2005 and then allowed back on the market in August, is now to be reviewed again according to a spokesperson for Health Canada.

On September 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered that “black box” warnings be placed on a commonly prescribed ADHD drug, Strattera, after clinical trials linked the drug to suicidal thoughts and behavior. The FDA indicated that the new warning stems from an ongoing review of all ADHD drugs and their possible association with suicide.

Brian Beaumont, President of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights stated, “The fact is, there is nothing in any medical or scientific literature that confirms the existence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It was invented by a handful of psychiatrists by a show of hands at an American Psychiatric Association meeting in the 80’s. Thus, psychiatrists are labeling and drugging a non-existent malady which is an indictable offence, fraud and child abuse.”
