Take a look at some of the articles that shine the light on the prescription medicines and mass shootings link. Of course, big drug companies don't want you to connect the dots.
See below for further information.
Every mass shooting over last 20 years has one thing in common... and it's not guns
The previous link takes you to the full article by Dan Roberts:
"(Ammoland.com) Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it's not the weapons used.
The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes..."
"There have been too many mass shootings for it just to be a coincidence. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed twelve students and a teacher at Columbine High School. Eric was on Luvox, an antidepressant. The Virginia Tech shooter killed thirty-two people and he was on an antidepressant. While withdrawing from Prozac, Kip Kinkel murdered his mother and stepmother. He then shot twenty-two classmates and killed two. Jason Hoffman wounded five at his high school while he was on Effexor, also an antidepressant. James Holmes opened fire in a Colorado movie theater this past summer and killed twelve people and wounded fifty-eight. He was under the care of a psychiatrist but no information has been released as to what drug he must have been on."
Mass Shootings and Psychoactive Prescription Drugs: Could There be a Connection
"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of people in the U.S. who report taking prescription antidepressants increased by 65% between 1999 and 2014 – and not all of these prescriptions have been for depression. According to a 2011 analysis from the University of Chicago, the number of off-label prescriptions for antipsychotics (used for indications lacking FDA approval) more than doubled between 1995 and 2008.
The fact that the country has seen an alarming increase in the number of mass shootings at the same time that use of antidepressants has been growing exponentially is not a coincidence. What’s more, the connection between antidepressants and violent behavior has been known for years – but it continues to be an “inconvenient truth” that neither lawmakers, psychiatrists nor pharmaceutical companies want to discuss."
List of 45 Mass Murders and Pharma Drugs they were on
Taking a look at this list is shocking, but also informative of how serious the side effects of these drugs really are.
Medicated to Death: SSRIs and Mass Killings
"In 2010, the Public Library of Science published a study titled “Prescription Drugs Associa
ted with Reports of Violence Towards Others” which examined how 484 drugs were associated with 1,937 documented cases of violent behaviour. Of those 484 drugs, 31 of them were responsible for 79% of the violence, including 11 antidepressants.
When incidents of school massacres in the US are charted against prescription of psychiatric medication, the correlation is undeniable. Further research is needed to establish if there is a causal linkage between these pharmaceuticals and the incidents of violence, but critics of the big pharmaceutical manufacturers complain such research is hampered by the low standards for reporting that these companies are held to.
One such critic, David Healy, author of over 150 peer-reviewed papers in the field of psychiatry and the author of numerous books, including Pharmageddon, joined me on The Corbett Report last week to discuss this issue.
Further complicating the issue is the fact that the general public is often, as in the case of the Fort Hood shooter, left in a state of limbo regarding the medical history of the perpetrators of these mass shooting events. Often stories are reported with vague and unconfirmed details about “antidepressants” or sometimes just medication. It can be difficult for the average person to sort through the daily reports of adverse and violent effects of these types of drugs.
One website that helps in that effort is SSRIStories.org. Begun in the 1990s, it is a repository of over 5000 news articles in which prescription drugs were linked to adverse events, including incidents of violence."
