The REAL Cause of America's Mental Illness Problem

Tens of millions of Americans have been made crazy — due to their use of or withdrawal from psychiatric drugs. That is the conclusion of two books written by health science writer Robert Whitaker.

His first book, Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill, noted that there has been a 600 percent increase in the disabilities of psychiatric drug-takers. His second book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America, documents the powerful forces behind psychopharmacology.

Dr. Gary Kohls, reviewing the books in the Online Journal, notes:

“Psychiatric drugs, whose developers, marketers and salespersons are all in the employ of the giant drug companies, are far more dangerous than the drug and psychiatric industries are willing to admit: These drugs, it turns our, are fully capable of disabling — often permanently — body, brain and spirit.”
