Mainstream media fails to ever report of the “man behind the curtain”. School shootings, military shootings, inter-family shootings…most all have the same underlying characteristic: psychotropic drugs. These two articles by Mike Adams, a.k.a. Health Ranger, and Neev M Arnell of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International are right on-point to the epidemic problem especially within our military.
U.S. soldiers are prescribed a cocktail of mind-altering drugs
• Antidepressants • Sedatives • Narcotic painkillers • Sleeping pills • Anti-psychotics
One-third of the U.S. Army is now taking at least one medication, reports the New York Times, and many are on a toxic combination of pharmaceutical cocktails. This is especially true among those diagnosed and treated for PTSD, TBI or other forms of “mental illness.”
But rather than offering them real treatment, the recipe for the U.S. military today is to “drug ’em and send ’em back to battle.” So now we have active-duty troops operating in Afghanistan who are ticking time bombs of psychiatric medications.
When those time bombs go off, we get suicides, accidents and even the occasional massacre of innocent civilians. Learn more: Natural News link…
18 U.S. veterans commit suicide daily; largely due to psychiatric drugs
“If mentally incapacitated troops are being drugged with dangerous, mind-altering drugs and deployed to battle against their will, how can we say that we have a volunteer army?” asked Alliance for Human Research Protection, the national network dedicated to advancing responsible and ethical medical research practices.
This is just one of the many criticisms being levied against the U.S. military in light of its liberal use of prescription medication, which is now being linked to rising suicide rates among soldiers.
A study released by the Army in June 2009 indicated that nearly as many American troops at home and abroad committed suicide in the first six months of 2006 as the number who had been killed in combat in Afghanistan during the same time period (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/…).
An average of 18 American veterans commit suicide every day (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/MindMo…). Now, the increasingly high number of deaths among both veterans and active duty soldiers–including suicides, accidental overdose, and lethal drug interactions–have now been linked to the exponential increase in the prescribing of drugs for post traumatic stress disorder, depression and other psychological illnesses. read source here ……
