The seriousness and severe adverse event effects of SSRI drugs," Marks said, "makes their use hardly justified in the majority of cases because SSRIs are well known to have limited efficacy over placebo and against non-pharmacologic treatments."
"There are many studies in the peer reviewed medical literature, supporting the causal role of serotonin in disinhibition and violence" he said.
"My own prescribing experience with SSRI drugs and evaluation of numerous cases referred to me," Marks advised, "has revealed significant agitation and aggression, akathisia, activation of mania and hypomania, increased depression, serious dependency and withdrawal difficulties, suicidal ideation, and toxic interactions with other drugs."
In 1974, a scientist funded by the Department of Defense, had a chilling vision. He sought to combine earlier MK-ULTRA hypnosis studies with emerging microwave technologies. In an outline to the DoD, Scapitz said "It will be shown the spoken word of the hynotist my be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the brain". He claimed this could be achieved without emplying any technical devices for 'receiving or transcoding messages'.
For the first time, US agents had the ability to remotely tamper with an individual's mind. Scapitz went even further, claiming that this could be achieved without the target even becoming aware of what was happening.
Since then, little public information has been revealed in scientific literature, following the imposition of the strict security classification. Despite this, significant pieces of information - more usually from non-US sources - continue to be published. What is available paints a bleak picture.
Evidence exists that mind-control and behavious modification technology is presently concealed behind Non Lethal Defense (NLD) initiatives. In annoncement in 1995 that non-lethal weapons - including high powered microwaves and radio frequency devices - are to be 'transited' to the law enforcement sector was met with dismay in some quarters. This joint programme, known as 'Operations Other Than War', opens the way for the military to move into the civilian domain - a move precluded by the American constitution. The stated aim is to more effectively tackle narcotics trafficking, terrorism and other criminal activity.
Many citizens consider this to be a lame excuse. They fear of widespread use of mind-altering technologies, and believe democracy is under serious assault. In the light of past government evilness and abuse, who could blame them???
A new study has found that juvenile hamsters became aggressive
on low doses of Prozac (fluoxetine) but less aggressive on high doses.
By contrast, adult hamsters were calm on both high and low doses
of the drug
Endocannabinoids - the Brain's Own Marijuana - May Be Linked to the Metabolic Syndrome
The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors, including abdominal obesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia, elevated blood pressure, and insulin resistance, associated with a prothrombotic and proinflammatory state. It is a major health problem in the United States and elsewhere, but we still don't understand its etiology.
Recent studies suggest that endocannabinoids, which are the brain's own marijuana, may be an etiologic factor linked to the metabolic syndrome.
New data show that the human brain makes its own "chemical marijuana" in the form of 2 compounds: anandamide, a Sanskrit word meaning "bliss," and 2-AG (2-arachidonoylglycerol). ...These endocannabinoids are unique since they are synthesized on demand and work in a reverse direction, from postsynaptic neurons where they are synthesized to presynaptic neurons where they bind to receptors. ...Two specific endocannabinoid receptors have been identified. These receptors are in high concentrations in the brain, liver, muscle, gut, and adipose tissue. Generally, these receptors appear to be located in areas of the body responsible for modulating energy balance, feeding behavior, hepatic lipogenesis, and glucose homeostasis.
