Neurologist Questions ‘Sudden Deaths’

California neurologist Fred Baughman Jr. has compiled a list of nearly 400 questionable soldier and veteran deaths, many attributed to “natural causes.”

“What the hell are ‘natural causes’ in 20-year-olds?” Baughman asks.

His research has led him to believe they are “probable sudden cardiac deaths with no pulse and brain death in 4-5 minutes caused by a cocktail of psychiatric drugs, especially antipsychotics.”

He found common factors in the cases of Andrew White and three other West Virginia veterans, all in their 20s, who died in their sleep in early 2008: “All had been diagnosed ‘PTSD’—a psychological diagnosis, not a disease (physical abnormality) of the brain; all were on the same prescribed drug cocktail, Seroquel (antipsychotic), Paxil (antidepressant) and Klonopin (benzodiazepine); and all appeared ‘normal’ when they went to sleep.”

With other physicians and CCHR, Dr. Baughman has issued an urgent warning: “I call upon the military for an immediate embargo of all antipsychotics and antidepressants until there has been a complete, wholly public, clarification of the extent and causes of this epidemic of probable sudden cardiac deaths.”

RESTORE HUMAN RIGHTS TO MENTAL HEALTH

Veterans Administration, Suicide,Psychiatric Drugs and Conflicts of Interest

2 Comments

Editor’s note:  With so many of our veterans, many of them decorated war heroes, now imprisoned under the predatory guardianship system and in dire need of rescue, this article is of particular interest.  The forced drugging and legalized theft of veteran benefits, savings and estates is in full swing.  Where is the VA when these men and women need them most?  Apparently…….at the pharmacy.  Marti

Veterans Administration Says Psychiatric Drugs Do Not Lead to Suicide, Yet Studies VA Cites Were Authored by Psychiatrists with Heavy Drug Company Ties—Watchdog Calls on Congress to Investigate Conflicts of Interest in VA Data Outcomes

The VA has recently stated that there’s no link between military suicides and sudden deaths due to psychiatric drug use, despite the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) highest warning “black box” attached to antidepressants for increased suicidal thinking and behavior and numerous warnings on psychiatric drugs and sudden death. CCHR, the mental health watchdog, says that the contrary data should merit a Congressional investigation based on the fact that the studies the VA is relying on, were conducted by psychiatrists with heavy conflicts of interest—which may explain their findings. These psychiatrists combined have over 70 financial ties to pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Abbott Labs, Forest Labs, GlaxoSmithKline and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

· The use of psychiatric drugs in the VA and military is increasing despite the clear cut evidence by the FDA and international drug regulatory agencies that psychiatric drugs cause suicidal thinking and behavior. By 2013, the VA and Department of Defense published a clinical-practice guide reporting that 18-22 die daily. Add to that the nearly 400 questionable soldier deaths, probable cardiac arrest from antipsychotics and cocktails of psychiatric drugs.

Tough questions need to be asked about psychiatrists in the VA and the pharmaceutical conflicts of interest in reports the VA is using for federal regulations. Our military personnel deserve no less.

CCHR has experts to speak on this subject, including a retired US Military Colonel and psychologist, a Former US Air Force Captain and nurse, and an award winning investigative reporter who can go on air and discuss this issue.
