A Closer Look At Generation Rx
recently released documentary details the disturbing and ongoing
chemical abuse of children by conventional medicine. The prescription
of psychiatric drugs to the masses, specifically children, are
altering their minds, bodies and entire lives.
psychotropic medications for school-age children is a booming
business these days. Ritalin's production alone is up 700 percent
since 1990. As a result, a battle has arisen between the pro-medication
and anti-medication camps: heated, public and utterly spurious.
Some children need medication; others don't. The real trouble
lies in how we make that assessment.
begins before the doctor ever sees the patient. The person with
the cash, the power and even the transportation usually gets
to identify the patient, setting the stage for all subsequent
decisions. Which is why women without children were called "barren"
and men without were just unlucky; why Freud treated the obstreperous
Doras but not their parents; why aged, uncertain parents find
themselves in nursing homes against their will. It is especially
so when the murky questions of behavior and psychology are raised:
is it adolescent moodiness or pre-Columbine sociopathy? Was
she born that way or did we make her that way?
basis of family therapy -- and common sense -- holds that the
most vulnerable point in the family structure will reveal its
stress first. And the way children show stress is often called
"symptoms." Parents, of course, do not always wish
to interpret the symptoms, nor are family doctors always trained
to read them. Even well-intentioned parents who wish to make
things better, quickly, may override their child's experience
and capacity to express it. For children right now -- especially
the fidgety, the distractable and the extra-lively -- their
vulnerability is made worse by a ghastly convergence of social
anxiety, overwhelmed and uninspired schools and widespread fixation
on the bottom line.
Find a symptom,
find a treatment, treat it and, in a modern twist, make it no
one's fault. Fix them, we say. And these new drugs do "fix"
them -- quickly, inexpensively and inappropriately. We fix them
at a younger and younger age -- these days even when they're
toddlers. And we do so even when we use medications intended
for adults. As a result, millions of children are on Ritalin
deficit disorder and hyperactive disorder (both formerly known
as minimal brain damage, but nicely renamed by the drug companies)
do exist, and it would be cruel to withhold Ritalin from children
who suffer from them. Just as it would be unfair to stigmatize
them as spoiled brats and ridiculous to blame their concerned
parents. But these drugs are being wildly prescribed because
they are cheaper and less time-consuming than psychotherapy
and much easier to sell, both to the consumer and to the average
family doctor. Prescriptions are less work than conversation
and careful evaluation. And handing out medication at lunchtime
is easier than creating classes that keep intelligent and curious
kids from squirming, daydreaming and talking back. Most of all,
we prescribe medications for children who don't need them because
the medications are available, and a cure for parental vanity
and irresponsibility. Most of all they generate massive amounts
of profits for Big Pharma.
modern psychiatric medicine come to the point where it's all
just a grand marketing scam designed to generate obscene profits
by exploiting the minds and bodies of an entire generation of
children? How did Big Pharma manage to so completely hijack
medical science, taking over the medical journals, FDA regulators,
science researchers and medical schools? And why hasn't this
been stopped? Why have these chemical crimes against children
continued to be tolerated -- even encouraged! -- by the Food
and Drug Administration and a Big Pharm-funded U.S. Congress?
Kevin Miller's Generation Rx covers all this (and more) in heart-wrenching
detail. The simple truth, as the film reveals, is that money
buys everything in this modern economy. It buys media coverage,
it buys distorted science, it buys legislation, and it even
buys the very definitions of disease. Big Pharma money has so
completely infiltrated modern psychiatric medicine that any
person claiming diseases like ADHD or "bipolar disorder"
are based on solid science should be laughed off the world stage.
Modern psychiatric medicine is an empty sham, a medical hoax,
an uninspired contrivance of scientific-sounding babblydeegook
designed to mesmerize gullible parents into putting their children
on dangerous patented chemicals that may ultimately kill them.
psychiatric scientists who voted these fictitious diseases (like
"ADHD") into existence have no idea what they really
are. At one point in Generation Rx, a psychiatrist is asked
to offer a clear definition of ADHD. His answer? A 45-second
fumbling of words, hesitations and stammering nonsense.
With this film,
courageous filmmaker Kevin Miller has catapulted a giant boulder
of truth into the scum-filled pond waters of modern psychiatry,
sending out a shockwave of ripples that threaten to finally expose
this malicious branch of medicine that depends for its very survival
on the chemical poisoning of childrens' brains.
