A deeply fascinating and urgently important critique of the widespread medicalization of normality
Anyone living a full, rich life experiences ups and downs, stresses, disappointments, sorrows, and setbacks. Today, however, millions of people who are really no more than "worried well" are being diagnosed as having a mental disorder and receiving unnecessary treatment. Allen Frances, one of the world's most influential psychiatrists, explains why stigmatizing a healthy person as mentally ill leads to unnecessary, harmful medications, the narrowing of horizons, the misallocation of medical resources, and the draining of the budgets of families and the nation. We also shift responsibility for our mental well-being away from our own naturally resilient brains and into the hands of "Big Pharma," who are reaping multi-billion-dollar profits. Frances cautions that the newest edition of the "bible of psychiatry," the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 (DSM-5), is turning our current diagnostic inflation into hyperinflation by converting millions of "normal" people into "mental patients." This lecture is a call to all of us to reclaim the full measure of our humanity.

Passionate believers in whole food plant based diets, no chemicals, minimal pharmaceutical drugs, no GMO's. Fighting to stop climate change and extinction.
All vaccines today have too many vial ingredients -- part of what pharma and. doctors are doing is generating and cultivating the next crop (people) of very sick people for the next 200 years. Because baby boomers are educated about GMOs, organics, chemtrails, pesticides , the corruption in the food industry, AND CORRUPTION IN MEDICINE--US, a million die by hospital mistakes and intentional practices, 300,00 die of pain meds each year, hospital utilization is down, on and on , THEY ARE CONCERNED. Fight now. Because your sick kids harmed by pharma and Doctors will not have the right mental faculties to do as you do. It will be too late.
It's like a rehearsed script that he's gone over so many times in his head that he actually believes all the lies now. What an absolute moron Del is. There are youtube videos showing Wakefield admit that he thinks vaccines cause autism despite Del's denial.
Karen Aenlle just because you say something, that in no way makes it true. The vaccine schedule has been extensively examined for both safety and efficacy by an independent, nonprofit organization outside of government and it is continually monitored on a regular basis. Despite what you have been told, the highest levels of safety precautions are implemented when it comes to vaccines and telling me to "go ahead and get vaccinated", is the the most pointless threat you could possibly give because I am fully vaccinated and surprise, no vaccine injuries or infectious diseases. Funny how that works. The fact that you get your information from people with absolutely no education, experience or expertise in anything remotely related to medicine or science, such as Del Bigtree, should give YOU pause.
"The Health and Medicine Division (HMD) of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine (IOM)) is an independent, nonprofit organization that works outside of government to provide unbiased and authoritative advice to decision makers and the public. Occasionally, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) asks HMD to examine all of the current medical and scientific evidence on a particular topic. Below are summaries of IOM reports relating to vaccine safety."
Miguel Sanchez go ahead and get vaccinated. You care to be an experiment, be my guest. But I am sorry if I refuse to inject myself with 72 doses of a vaccine schedule that had not been proven to be safe or effective. And if that is not enough I refuse to be mandated to consume a product that has no liability by its manufacturer. Those 2 facts alone should give you pause.
Apologies, maybe I have been a bit rude. I just find it baffling and annoying when people literally advocate against life saving medicine and the death of small children when the subject at hand has literally been proven to have saved hundreds of millions, if not billions of lives since their inception.
You still seem to have the onus backwards and that you, the pro-disease/anti-vax community, are the ones claiming aluminum adjuvants are dangerous while refusing to post any credible science to back it up. You seem so confident so please, enlighten me. At what concentrations of mg/kg or ug/kg does aluminum adjuvants become detrimental to human health? What is the LD50 and half life of aluminum chloride, aluminum sulphate and aluminum nitrate vs. elemental aluminum? What is the physiological mechanism of action of ingested vs. injected aluminum salts at varying dosages? What about the mechanism of action and physiological effects of aluminum salts if they were to be injected intravenously vs. intramuscularly? What if a more effective GMO adjuvant were available, would you still protest it?
You are the one claiming it to be unsafe, that is YOUR accusation and it is up to YOU to back it up, that's how science works. So, I ask again, where is YOUR proof?
Cutting through the rant once again, I am led to believe you did not determine which studies were used and what was so weak about them?
Here’s a thought:
The burden of proof was on the CDC to prove that the Aluminum was safe to inject. They failed.
BTW, I truly don’t mind your “attacks,” Miguel, but you should learn that it only reflects poorly upon you. I could engage in speculation about you and I think I would be fairly spot on, but none of it is relevant to our conversation, and it does nothing but get in the way.
myjciskate4 Good, I’m glad you are aware, even if you disagree. I feel relieved when a person is at least aware of the concerns because then I feel as if I have no other moral obligation to attempt to warn that person.
I hear you about not feeling like writing 17 paragraphs. I’m sick to death of it myself. I am not seeking to have a huge discussion about it, so I won’t post these questions in any group as you suggested, however, when I encounter someone who I think may be unaware of the info I have learned (as I suspected you were) I feel obligated. That is why I responded to you. You are all set in your decision to vaccinate and feel content in the research you have done, and that is a relief to me. Best to you.
Are you aware of the legal case in the US in which it was deemed that a vaccine DID cause a child's Autism?
Are you aware of the United States Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?
Are you aware that some of the ingredients in vaccines are categorized as neurotoxic?
Are you aware of Dr. Bradstreet and his work?
Are you aware that vaccines can and DO cause Encephalitis, i.e., inflammation of the brain (you can find that written in the Merck Manual Consumers Version)?
Are you aware that polysorbate 80 is used in brain cancer drugs specifically because that ingredient allows the medicine to cross the blood-brain barrier and that NOW there is ppolysorbate 80 in some vaccines which is allowing the virus, the neurotoxins, and everything else in the syringe to cross the blood-brain barrier?
myjciskate4 yes what ARE you talking about. Read the actual paper. They didn’t “debunk” anything they just told lies to the public to make it seem like he wasn’t credible. Since many people just follow what the fake news media tells them without actually doing their own research of course they believed it! But it’s not true. He’s a hero and so is Del and so if everyone else behind this movement.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
