In the latter part of September 2011 some interesting pharmaceutical information surfaced that apparently hasn’t gotten the attention it rightly deserves: Over-prescribing antipsychotic drugs for infants, toddlers, pre-teen and teenage children.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI) posted “FDA Needs to Ban Antipsychotic Drug Use on Kids” http://www.cchrint.org/2011/09/23/fda-needs-to-ban-antipsychotic-drug-use-on-kids/ wherein they state
Considering that antipsychotic drugs are already documented by international drug regulatory agencies to cause not only diabetes but obesity, psychosis, blood clots, heart problems, cardiac events, seizures, toxicity, confusion, coma and stroke (and that’s just in kids) as well as brain atrophy (meaning they actually shrink brains); considering there is no medical test to prove any child has a brain malfunction, chemical imbalance or any physical condition requiring the administration of these lethal drugs—and considering these drugs are literally killing kids that have nothing medically wrong with them in the first place— Do the job you are paid by U.S. Taxpayers to do and BAN their use on children.
To which I’d like to include and say, why stop with antipsychotic drugs when vaccines—especially DTP, MMR, HPV and vaccines containing neurotoxic mercury and aluminum plus polysorbate 80, and recombinant, foreign species, and human fetus DNA—do similar, if not worse, damage to children’s health and well being? I can hear my readers saying, “It’s the gelt, stupid!” In Yiddish, gelt mean money. Ahhhh, that probably is the driving factor since infants under two years of age are being prescribed such powerful mind-blowing drugs.
From fall 2009 to spring of this year, 1.9 million prescriptions of Abilify alone were dispensed to patients under 18, including even 875 prescriptions for toddlers younger than 2, according to FDA research. [Emphasis added]
The most disturbing aspect of such legalized drug pushing is, as CCHRI states,
The new generation of antipsychotic medications has raised a wave of concerns as they are increasingly being prescribed for a host of uses and for younger and younger patients, with little conclusive research addressing their impact on children and sometimes with little evidence they work. [Emphasis added]
That is not surprising since vaccines also are not tested for safety and/or efficacy—or producing cancer—but those public health buzz words—safety and efficacy—are based upon ‘the gospel according to Big Pharma’ and not independent and/or U.S. FDA-sponsored research/studies. FDA accepts what pharmaceutical companies pony up as science along with the massive filing fees that push drugs and vaccines through the approval process. That’s it basically!
In essence, ‘testing’ is done when most vaccines are sold—post-marketing—as is being done in Norway with regard to the HPV vaccine. See Norwegian Institute of Public Health information here (http://www.fhi.no/eway/default.aspx?)
Adding the proverbial “insult to injury” or “rubbing salt into a wound” type of analogy, consider what journalist Tracy Staton wrote September 27, 2011 in her article, “JAMA: Spotty results with off-label antipsychotic use”—
Off-label use of powerful antipsychotic drugs has come in for plenty of debate in recent years. The expensive, newer-generation “atypicals” have been used to treat dementia, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, dementia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder…the list goes on. And all this while the Justice Department was investigating Big Pharma for off-label promotion of the drugs. [Emphasis added] ….
Meanwhile, side effects were sometimes severe, including weight gain, metabolic problems, fatigue, urinary tract symptoms and even an increased risk of death, the researchers said. http://www.cchrint.org/2011/09/28/jama-spotty-results-with-off-label-antipsychotic-use/
What a mockery of justice? The U.S. Justice Department investigating Big Pharma! Personally, I’d like to know how many Big Pharma lobbyists took Justice Department personnel out to lunch, dinner, or visited them with ‘little presents’? That’s how it works, I think, otherwise justice would be served up in favor of downsizing—or better still, preventing—infants, toddlers, and all children from becoming legal drug addicts. Or, is that what Big Pharma wants and intends? Get them any which way they can from vaccines mandated right out of the birth canal to college and beyond. Currently federal health agencies in the USA mandate a child must receive sixty-eight (68) vaccines by the time he or she goes to college.
However, one of the issues that no one seems to be considering except those of us who are considered ‘vaccine conspiracy theorists’ or, as I prefer, vaccine safety advocates, the very issue of mental health anomalies—ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, etc.—did not become pandemic in U.S. children until vaccines were doubled in the 1980s and subsequently tripled.
Miller and Goldman meticulously documented in their paper “Infant mortality rates regressed against number of vaccine doses routinely given: Is there a biochemical or synergistic toxicity?” published in Human and Experimental Toxicology on May 4, 2011 http://het.sagepub.com/content/early/2011/05/04/0960327111407644 , and yet no one in any federal U.S. health agency, that I know, is rushing to ‘see what it’s all about’. Why?
I think every parent in the USA ought to print out the Miller-Goldman paper and take it to their children’s pediatrician—MD, state and local school district boards, members of Congress and demand to know why they should be mandated to submit their children to vaccination that set up kids for probable short and long-term health adverse effects when, in reality, demographics tell a horribly sad story about vaccine damage and death.
But one state, North Carolina, seems to be getting on the ball about children’s health matters. In a press release dated October 24, 2011, “N.C. Medicaid Goes Online to Monitor Kids’ Mental Health Drugs,” they say
N.C. Medicaid has launched a new, high-tech program to safeguard the health of children prescribed antipsychotic medications, while shaving an estimated $30 million from the state’s Medicaid budgets over the next five years. http://www.ncdhhs.gov/pressrel/2011/2011-10-24_mh_drugs.htm
In 2010, more than 20,000 N.C. Medicaid enrollees under age 18 were prescribed an antipsychotic medication, at a cost exceeding $40 million.
I guess that’s what it really is about: GELT! Saving $30 million in North Carolina Medicaid budgets in just five years—OMG! So what can that amount to in the other 49 states in the nation? I don’t think my calculator can accommodate such calculations.
North Carolina’s chief medical officer for that state’s Medicaid program said, “The clinical concern with the frequent use of antipsychotic medications in children is nationwide.” That’s the problem, as I see it being a consumer healthcare researcher. No one is doing anything about it, except North Carolina. If anyone knows differently, please let me know, as I surely would like to congratulate that state and work with anyone to undo the injustice done to infants, toddlers, and children of all ages—including geriatric kids.
North Carolina says that other states have begun to contact them about this problem. May I suggest that my readers send this article with the working links to their state representatives in their state capitols to get the antipsychotic Medicaid debacle investigation going. While you’re at it, please tell them similar shenanigans are going on with vaccines, Big Pharma’s and the U.S. CDC and FDA’s ‘sacred cows’.
There is something that would make my day, and that is if—no, when—states start to step back and take a sincere and objective look at the BIG time money problems vaccines are causing their Medicaid programs. I compare that type of problem to the perfect Hegelian Dialectic being foisted upon states by Big Pharma: Create the problem/need, for which the public demands relief, and implement the relief plan that was built in as the answer when the problem was created in the beginning by those who either want control or have vested interests.
Isn’t it quite apparent what’s going on? How come those who should be seeing and investigating this type of child abuse—how about calling it ‘pharmaceutical rape’—are not? I guess gelt does a lot more than purchase the necessities of life; it just may make lies and mandates easier to perpetrate under the guise of healthcare, I guess.
Gelt also makes your pediatrician’s day worth his while, as Tim Bolen reports in his article “Want To Keep Your Baby Healthy? Stay Away From Pediatricians…” wherein he ‘disses’ on the commissions pediatricians receive for pushing vaccines. Bolen’s information may be difficult to swallow—or believe—but Tim’s figures come directly from reliable sources:
Take a look at this chart link for pediatricians, put together by payscale.com. As you can quickly see a salaried Pediatrician, in the US, makes somewhere between $68,654 to $169,517. BUT, add on “Commissions” (vaccine pushing) and that income range changes radically. For, as the chart shows, “Commissions” can range from $293.61 to $352,694.
Are there too many vaccines and vaccinations in the U.S.? Not as far as your child’s pediatrician may be concerned. The more Big Pharma can produce, the more he or she will pump into your child with sad results, as every demographic indicates since pediatricians bought into Big Pharma’s hype about supposed immunology. Ask any medical student what he or she learned in medical school about vaccines. You will be greatly surprised. What MDs really learn is on-the-job training from the pharmaceutical reps who ply their wares in a manner similar to the traveling salesmen of old, only they were hawking life’s necessities.
