Gwen Olsen — INDUSTRY’S INFLUENCE IN MEDICINE DUPED, DOPED AND DYING IN AMERICA
On December 2, 2004, Gwen Olsen's niece Megan committed suicide by setting herself on fire-and ended her tortured life as a victim of the adverse effects of prescription drugs. Gwen Olsen offers an honest glimpse into alarming statistics and a health care system ranked last among nineteen industrialized nations worldwide. As a former sales representative in the pharmaceutical industry for several years, Olsen learned first hand how an unprecedented number of lethal drugs are unleashed in the United States market, but her most heartrending education into the dangers of antidepressants would come as a victim and ultimately, as a survivor. Gwen Olsen shares one woman's unforgettable journey of faith, forgiveness, and healing.

Outraged? You betcha, Gwen.
I could be outraged just on behalf of affected adults.
But when they come for the kids, all bets are off.
The home of the brave and the land of the free (Koff Koff) has stolen freedom from its children (except for the select numbers who are socio-politically and especially financially protected from this holocaust.)
Whatever it is we thought we had learned how to protect our children from, over the past 40 years - we have failed miserably to protect them from the religion of free enterprise.
As long as children are commodified (and yeah, I was a commodified baby boomer kid - so I consumed a lot of double bubble and bazooka joe, a bunch of Dixie Flyers and Cooper Weeks baseball gloves, a ton of Saturday afternoon matinee movie popcorn, comic books, and later, 45rpms) - but no-one ever commodified my soul.
And I do believe that is the main point, when you look into the eyes of a child, expecting to see that great mad joy in being alive - and instead see a barbie or ken doll staring vacantly back at you.
When this becomes the new normal, we have sold the nation's future down the river.
When "educators" demand complacent robots instead of smaller humans requiring challenges, discipline, and the very best stimulants that wake up their developing brains (instead of suppressants to put them eternally to sleep) - then our science fiction fantasy has walked into reality and taken over.
So the number of views on this (and the number of comments) add up to.....what?
About - 0.000000001% of the actual number of people negatively affected by this issue.
(meanwhile porn and cute kittens command 70% of the market.)
America's war on drugs was lost. America's drug war on its citizens is winning.
I get it.
The criminal CEOs, CFOs, Board of directors and their Scientists are in the business of eugenics… We are and have been under assault; we have the right to self-defense and to protect ourselves… Nothing is going to change until the criminal CEOs, CFOs, Board of directors, Scientists and their prostitute politicians passing favorable laws for them are completely eliminated…
My step dad has stage 4 non Hodgkins Lymphoma. He will not be able to recover. I went out just this past February to help him and my mom for about a week. I got there and he could barely walk. He couldn't sleep. He was mumbling and hallucinating. He kept falling and had a nasty rash on his chest. After a few days I was curious about the medicine. I pulled one out, Lorazapam, and saw the side effects. The side effects were mostly what he was experiencing such as the hallucinations, rash, and delirium. I told my mom to take him off of it. Within two days of removing the drug. He started walking better, hallucinations stopped, and his eyes and speech cleared up within these two days.
Sugar is the most addictive and cheap LEGAL substance known to mankind followed by caffeine, sugar substitutes (man made esp. eg. HFCS, +++), alcohol, tobacco, grains (flour), and ... DOPAMINE release is WHY addictions become acceptable and yet; one thing leads to another for BIG Corp Agriculture, Food, Drug/Pharma, Health Insurance, and more. 401K's and other Baby Boomer pensions and retirement plans are so intertwined (too big to fail) so on and on this goes. *Welcome to the Matrix - R U Ready to EXIT from it?!
Also, if your a parent with a child that has ADHD, or a "distracting energy", as i like to call it, instead of pills, put your child in SPORTS.
Sports provides excersise, discipline, team work, popularity and structure.
Children subconsciously crave structure. Structure is a comfort zone.
I study the opioid epidemic..this is the most comprehensive program i have seen yet.
Just like big tobacco, big pharma came up with the most addictive chemicals and mixes them in the pills.
Its all about getting you addicted.
People are defenseless against these chemicals.
I got hurt in the military and they gave this poison to me for four years. When they cut me off, they expected me to take the next designed step...go to heroin and die.
Instead, I used weed. I am alive today because i chose weed instead of heroin.
Now, because weed is easy to quit, I dont do anything.
btw, I took the ssri for 3 years...just as nasty a poison as the opioids.
STAY AWAY FROM SSRI.
If you need an escape, choose weed.
whattttttttt lol what the hell is this woman talking about? People talk openly about taking benzos and narcotics? huh....ummm no lady. I had to look at the date of this thinking it had to be from 5-10 yrs ago. This is complete bs!
