Drug company 'hid' suicide link


www.rinf.com

Secret emails reveal that the UK’s biggest drug company distorted trial results of an anti-depressant, covering up a link with suicide in teenagers.
S
Panorama reveals that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) attempted to show that Seroxat worked for depressed children despite failed clinical trials.

And that GSK-employed ghostwriters influenced ‘independent’ academics.

GSK told Panorama: “GSK utterly rejects any suggestion that it has improperly withheld drug trial information.”

Looks like the UK drug companies are learning new games from the US drugs companies. They've been corrupt and hiding drug test results for decades. Your best bet is to not take prescription drugs. As long as you stay away from processed foods and commercial products, there's no need for them.

Thats all find but these are kids. I personally dont have a problem with a consenting adult taking whatever if he knows the risks. And even dont lose too much sleep on drug testing on adults. But with children it sparks a bit of outrage. If i found this out and my kid was on this drug/killed himself cause of it . Heads would roll .
I feel for the family's .

There should be a way to shut the company down for falsifying potentially fatal information.

Long gone are the days where a company dies because the people don't trust it any more... now we need to be able to destroy companies for this sort of thing.

It doesn't matter to the drug companies who dies... adults or kids. It's all about making money. In the US, there are hundreds of thousands of kids on medication for ADHD... an illness caused by food chemicals. The medical industry won't tell people to simply clean up your kids diet. They would rather make money off your kids bad health. It's a dirty truth and evidently the UK is also jumping on that bandwagon.

Just to play devils advocate here for a minute, consider this:

ALL antidepressants have the potential within the first few weeks of treatment to cause deeper depression and suicidal thoughts to some who may be more susceptible.

This is because most of them (and the most commonly prescribed) alter the seratonin levels in the brain.

Think of your seratonin levels like an EQ on a stereo - the levels have to be brought back into balance, if they are OUT of balance.

This is what antidepressants do - just google SSRI or SRI - selective seratonin reupteake inhibitors or seratonin reuptake inhibitors: they adjust the levels of seratonin to get them back in synch.


Any company that hides information this important should be castigated.

But I'd also like people to consider the number of lives that have been saved because of prescription antidepressants before getting caught up in a witch hunt.

My understanding was they spoofed seratonin . Maybe i have been watching too much "House MD" But i could have swore that a number of anti-depressants were "generic" (For lack of better word) saretonin.

I was talking about the effect rather than the chemical make up.

But my understanding coincides with yours.

I wouldn't be so quick to defend antidepressant medications. It's nothing but a moneymaking scam for the pharmaceutical industry and people can avoid them by avoiding chemicals.

I completely cured my own 15-year depression by changing my diet to organic foods and using only organic and eco-friendly products in my home. I was on several antidepressants over a period of 7 years and I experienced both the subtle and not-so-subtle side effects.

This government introduced chemicals into our society over a hundred years ago (and have been increasing them steadily for decades) and then people started getting illnesses such as obesity, high blood pressure, depression, alzheimers, diabetes, cancer, etc. Any 'explanation' offered by the scientific community are lies with junk science to back it up.

All of those illnesses are completely preventable and mostly curable, but you won't hear that from the government, the FDA, the medical industry, the food industry or your doctor.

It's much more profitable for all of the above industries and organizations to keep pushing chemicals on us so they can keep pushing drugs on us.

People need to wake up and smell the coffee before they keel over and die while their finances are drained by the organizations claiming to 'protect you'.

No worries.

There's some good info about diet in this thread especially from badge.


annestacey
I'm not defending them - I personally think they are a bunch of profiteering, warmongering, manipulative bunch of cashwhores.

But that's just an "IMO"

Like I said, I was just playing devils advocate, although I also speak from personal experience - self help and diet are important, but I'd pretty much gone beyond that point.

Yes I'm in the US. If you want to change your diet, try to consume fresh organic foods, mostly fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. Raw foods provide more nutrition because cooking mostly takes the nutrients out. Microwaves kill food as well. Don't eat anything processed. (If it comes in a box or a package and not naturally grown, it's processed). If you need to consume meat and dairy products, try to keep it organic.

You can learn a lot about this topic at my favorite grassroots health website: NewsTarget

You'll be shocked at what is in processed foods, meat and dairy.

Good luck!
