 Missing in action:  The FDA and selective targeting 

As the FDA continues its targeting of supplement manufacturers, whole fresh milk producers and attempts to whip up a public frenzy over non existent threats over vitamins and nutritional supplements, the pharmaceutical manufacturers are getting away with murder and the FDA is not only aware of it, but helping to facilitate it.

Every year 700,000 adverse events are reported regarding psychotropic drugs [1] and an average of 42,000 individuals lose their lives as a result of these drugs and yet FDA has not closed one drug manufacturer or prosecuted any company for its part in the physical harm and resulting deaths that occur from taking drugs which are not safe even if strictly used as prescribed; drugs which the FDA gave its stamp of approval to. And never does the FDA launch a public panic campaign in an attempt to demonize drug makers, as they have with nutritional supplements, vitamins and herbal remedies. 

Psychiatry and psychotropic drugs  

Psychotropic drugs could have never become as successful and prevalent as they are without the approval and market access provided to drug makers by the FDA. Even so,  it seems the field of psychiatry has not only been a willing partner in drug dealing, but has been invaluable in creating fictionalized disorders that it seems only they can detect in most cases, even in infants. 

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – Mental Illness, Disease, Health [2] otherwise known as the DSM, is being revamped to throw a wide net even over children and infants along with virtually every sector of the population.  Describing supposed “diseases” which have no proven pathology, everyone is subject to being diagnosed with some form of mental illness and to be forced onto some kind of drug if not multiple drugs.
