You Might Be Curious To Know Why

You might be curious to know why so many people are taking psych meds. You might ask, "why are so many of our citizens on psych meds. Are they really needed on such a massive scale? Or is something else going on?

National Statement

Is this a statement about our nation, our culture, our way of life? What is the explanation for this sad state of affairs? Here are a number of different possible explanations

The Big Pharma Explanation

The pharmaceutical industry, also known as"Big Pharma", has used deceptive advertising techniques to convince us we need psych meds in order to avoid unhappiness in our lives. If we have any life challenges which cause unhappiness, anxiety, insomnia, grief, hostility, or fear, then this has been redefined as a "psychiatric disease". If only we took more psych meds, we could be truly happy with our lives. The result is one in six on psych meds, and windfall profits for Big Pharma.

The Industrial Food GMO Explanation

Our GMO food supply is genetically modified to withstand massive amounts of herbicides and pesticides which we unknowingly consume. These toxic food residues, along with red yellow and blue food colorings, chemical food additives, MSG, and Aspartame cause neurotoxicity and neuro-psychiatric disturbances in the population, all of which are treated with psych meds. The result: One in Six on Psych Meds. Left Image GMO Corn Courtesy of Anonymous Anti-GMO web Site.
