Antidepressants are killing people: Risk of early death increased by 33%

(Natural News) There is no doubt that the intense stresses and pressures of modern life have left many people feeling depressed and unable to cope. While there are certainly people who have serious mental health issues and require therapy and other treatment to help them with their struggles, it is also true that antidepressant medications like Prozac and Zoloft are viewed almost as cure-alls in our society. More people than ever before are being prescribed these medications, often without being fully informed about their serious side effects and potential for long-term harm.

Now, a new study out of Canada has raised further red flags, after researchers found that people on antidepressants, who do not suffer from heart disease, are 33 percent more likely to die from any cause than those who are not taking such medications.

The meta-analysis, which was conducted by a team from McMaster University, located in Hamilton, Ontario, and published in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, analyzed the results of 17 earlier studies which involved close to 380,000 participants, to determine the overall long-term effects of antidepressants on longevity.

At first, their findings were not too alarming; there appeared to only be about a nine percent increase in risk of death for those on so-called “happy pills” – an elevation which the researchers did not consider to be clinically significant.

However, knowing that antidepressants thin the blood, which could have a positive effect on the health of people with cardiovascular problems by preventing clotting, the researchers then removed the results of participants with heart conditions. That was when the startling fact emerged that long-term use of antidepressants elevated risk of death by 33 percent.

Science Daily explains why the risk is likely elevated in this way:

It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body — the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver — use serotonin from the bloodstream.

Antidepressants block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.

While a nine percent increase in risk might not be considered “clinically significant” – although many people would still view this as unacceptable – a 33 percent elevation in risk has these researchers seriously concerned.

“We are very concerned by these results,” said lead researcher Paul Andrews, as reported by the Daily Mail. “They suggest that we shouldn’t be taking antidepressant drugs without understanding precisely how they interact with the body. I do think these drugs for most people are doing more harm than good and that physicians ought not to generally prescribe them.”

As disturbing as this study’s findings are, they become even more shocking when one considers the fact that another study, published in the highly respected journal The Lancet, found that of the 14 most commonly prescribed antidepressants, only one – fluoxetine (Prozac) – worked better than a placebo.

In addition, one of the drugs – venlafaxine (Effexor) – was associated with an increase in suicidal thoughts and attempts.

Peter Gotzsche, the lead author of a study conducted by The Nordic Cochrane Centre, warned, “While it is now generally accepted antidepressants increase the risk of suicide and violence in children and adolescents, most people believe these drugs are not dangerous for adults. This is a potentially lethal misconception.” He added, “It is well documented that drug companies under-report seriously the harms of antidepressants related to suicide and violence, either by simply omitting them from reports, by calling them something else or by committing scientific misconduct.”

So, over 90 percent of antidepressants don’t work, they double your risk of suicide, and they increase your risk of an early death by 33 percent. It’s hard to imagine how doctors continue to justify handing them out like candy.

About 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year

And why would this be any different in NZ Kiwis? Same drug companies. Same medical model. Same addressing of symptoms not root causes as is generally the case.

From herbs-info.com

A damning Harvard University report has advised that according to the European Commission, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year – making prescription drugs the 4th highest cause of death, on a par with stroke.

We could get into legal trouble if we advised you to go against the recommendations of your doctor; however we can advise you to be as informed as possible about the risks involved in taking prescription meds.

According to the World Health Organization, the pharmaceutical industry is worth 300 billion dollars annually – with an additional hundred million expected to add to the value in the next three years. A third of this entire multi-billion-dollar market is controlled by ten of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. According to CMR International, a partner of Thomas Reuters, global pharmaceutical sales reached one trillion dollars in 2014 and will be booming to 1.3 trillion by 2018.

It goes without saying that this is big business – but like every big business, there is a dark side as well. Can we really trust the research – seeing as the same companies selling the pills are funding many of the medical journals? And then we have the issue of doctors receiving kickbacks for prescribing certain drugs, after being “educated” on the benefits of the drugs by pharma salesmen.

Take a look at this list of seven of the most dangerous prescription drug typesand see how they can hurt you. [1][2]

#1: Sleeping Pills (OTC and prescribed)

The use of sleeping pills has been associated with an increased risk factor for stroke. A study published by Petrov, et. al. in 2014 revealed that over-the-counter and prescription sleeping pills increased a person’s risk for stroke, independently and beyond any of the other known risk factors like blood pressure, personal history of heart disease, and vices like smoking and drinking alcohol. Isn’t it worrying that compared to all other factors that place a person at risk for stroke, sleeping pills top that list? [3]

It’s no accident the entire world faces rising house prices, homelessness & poverty : watch Bilderberg the Movie & learn who really controls the world

From Jenese James

I watched Bilderberg The Movie last night –  (written & Produced by Daniel Estulin, Directed by Joan Cutrina).  I have read his books, and asked him if anyone from NZ has been to Bilderbergs, but that was quite a few years ago – over a decade – when I used to write about these sorts of things – he said to his knowledge no – I might ask him again since it was before the days of John Key. I highly recommend watching this documentary on Prime for free or hire/buy it at this link – if you are not familiar with how things work then this will open your eyes.

Any how – its really important to comprehend that we are living in the time of revealing – where nothing can be hidden not even by these people – now they are all in plain sight – and as we move towards 2020 many more people are going to see them – there will be nowhere for them to hide their agenda and their hidden hand.

bilderberg movie
The first Bilderberg conference was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in OosterbeekNetherlands in 1954

Every MSM will have a connection to someone within this group – only a handful of people are in the know – same as the banking industry …..all industries – this is ONE conspiracy that is being seen as fact in terms of how their hidden hand controls everything within nation states and it’s not as if we don’t know this – JFK gives a great speech in this doco about what he saw happening – he was killed of course – this is what he said …. the link to the whole speech is below:

“….For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day….”

 http://www.knowledgeoftoday.org/…/new-world-order…

So was MLK – if you take a moment and have a hard look anyone who tries to stand up against this system gets taken out or like Julian Assange – gets painted as bad and trapped in an embassy for why – trying to get the truth out – that in and of itself should be telling all that something is seriously wrong with the system.

2020 is known by everyone as perfect vision – 2020 vision in fact – we are going to be in 2020 next year – what are we going to see so clearly – the corruption of the system will no longer be deniable by the MSM who always seem to be the ones putting down anyone who seeks to speak out about it …thereby guarding the gates of perception ……

It is no coincidence that the entire world is facing rising house prices, rising homelessness and rising poverty this is NOT an accident.

Dai Ben Tim Russell Robert F. Kennedy, Jr– and so they killed Kennedy and gained in power and still exist today they are the Monsanto the Duponts the oil empire, they are the head of MSM – of banks of all forms of control – Big Pharma – all of them will be seen for what they are in 2020 as the world wakes up en mass to what we have known for decades …..

“Based on Daniel´s Estulin Best Seller, Bilderberg, The Movie is the original documentary film about the origins, development and expansion of one of the most elitist and secret organizations in today’s world: The Bilderberg Group.

Once a year, the most powerful people on the planet, meet behind closed doors. The Group is comprised of European Prime Ministers, American presidents, and the wealthiest CEOs of the world, all coming together to discuss the economic and political future of humanity.

The working press has never been allowed to attend, nor have statements ever been released on the attendees’ conclusions or discussions, which have ramifications on the citizens of the world.” Source: Vimeo channel

Sacrificial Virgins – a doco about the HPV Gardasil vaccine – SHOCKING

Published on Mar 9, 2018

Is the next Thalidomide-style scandal about to break? The HPV vaccine is a treatment in widespread use but its efficacy in preventing cancer is medically unproven, while unintended, adverse reactions are blighting and even ending the lives of girls and young women across the world. However, pharmaceutical manufacturers and many health authorities are refusing to acknowledge there is a problem and the medical community is continuing to offer the vaccine.

American Medical Association sliding toward support of physician-assisted suicide… here come the death panels

(Natural News) Will the American Medical Association soon be in favor of physician-assisted suicide? In early June, the AMA decided not to reaffirm its position against assisted suicide – a decision which has shocked many. But indeed, the AMA has gone against its own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, which recommended the AMA maintain its opposition of euthanasia for humans.

Advocates for assisted suicide have been very successful at opening doors for euthanasia in medicine. In some states, affiliate groups have already taken a more neutral stance on this issue, paving the way for legislators to approve the legalization of doctor-assisted suicide. While proponents of euthanasia say that their cause gives patients the right to a dignified death, the issue isn’t really that cut and dry. There are substantial concerns about the potential for abuse and coercion. Inevitably, this could give rise to an untold number of citizens quietly being put to death against their will – while no one will be the wiser.

Experts warn against assisted suicide

Matt Vallière, the Executive Director of Patients Rights Action Fund, told Life News that he, and other advocates for patients’ rights, are very concerned about the AMA’s sudden change of heart.

“The American Medical Association’s decision to not confirm their own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs’ recommendation – namely that they maintain their opposition to assisted suicide – does not take into account that this bad public policy puts vulnerable patients at high risk for coercion, mistakes and even abuse. Although the AMA’s opposition position still stands for now, a referral back to CEJA is a lost opportunity and a failure to stand against a policy that has grave consequences for everyone, but especially persons living with illness, disabilities, or socio-economic disadvantage. Assisted suicide is not medical care,” Vallière stated.

CONFIRMED: Google is actively censoring natural health websites to protect Big Pharma and destroy knowledge of natural medicine

NOTE: I find this to be true. Today I searched alternative search engines to bring up Dr. Mercola’s site. Everywhere I saw derogatory articles, posts on his ‘doubtful’ credibility and could not bring up his site at all. I tried three different search engines. The censorship has indeed cracked down. So what are they afraid of? Folk might find out some truth about the pharmaceutical industry? About how the natural health industry was sidelined. Been saying for a while now, the day will come that sites like this one will be history. The net’s drawing tighter.

(Natural News) There’s a strong argument to be made that if iron-fisted tyranny ever comes to America, the statists in Silicon Valley will be leading the charge. These people (including workers at Facebook, Twitter, and especially Google) think nothing of undermining the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech in order to fulfill the Left’s twisted political agendas. Silicon Valley’s ongoing and seemingly unstoppable censorship of the Internet is, to a large extent, planting the seeds of tyranny in the fabric of America.

Google censors content it doesn’t like

Late last month, Ray Gano published an article on his website discussing how Google is suppressing medical information and other content that the company deems unfit for readers. On page 108 of Google’s handbook, for example, Google states that “pages that directly contradict well established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information” are suppressed on its search engine, “unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

Notably, Google also states that “pages that directly contradict well-established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories)” are also hidden from users, again, “unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

The question, of course, is as follows: does Google have to abide by the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech as outlined in the First Amendment, or does it get to dictate which users get to practice their rights and which users don’t? Considering the fact that the Constitution is the highest law in the land, Google should be compelled to abide by it, regardless of whether or not the page contradicts “well established scientific or medical consensus” or “well-established historical facts.”

Government committee declares HPV vaccines should never be given to teenage boys … Media pursues total BLACKOUT on the story

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 by: 

(Natural News) A finding by the U.K.’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), that it is not advisable to administer the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to boys, has been met with absolute outrage and a virtual media blackout. Medical professionals in that country have been so indoctrinated by pharmaceutical companies to believe that this vaccine is life-saving that, according to The Guardian, 94 percent of general practitioners and 97 percent of dentists believe that both boys and girls should receive the shot.

All British girls between the age of 12 and 13 have been offered the HPV vaccine as part of the National Health Service’s immunization program since 2008. The JCVI has been deliberating for three years about whether this program should also be extended to include boys.

While the committee is not claiming that the vaccine would be harmful to young males, its interim statement claims that boys automatically receive herd protection by virtue of the high number of girls being vaccinated. They believe that it is therefore “highly unlikely to be cost-effective” for boys to also be given the vaccine.

There has been a concerted effort by Big Pharma and the media to push this vaccine on young people around the globe. Is it really true, however, that HPV is a life-threatening virus, and that it is vitally important to be vaccinated?

It is important to understand that the human papillomavirus is actually incredibly common, and for the most part, causes few health problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes, “HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active people get it at some point in their lives. … In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems.”

The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

Comment: not wanting to be the bearer of bad news but as a reader has pointed out in the comments with this article, “Every once in a while there’s a fall guy like John Kapoor to create the illusion of a just society.”  I’m inclined to agree with him.

(Natural News) I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

From the DCNF:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.

Kapoor stepped down as the company’s CEO in January amid ongoing federal probes into their Subsys product, a pain-relieving spray that contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and ingesting just two milligrams is enough to cause an adult to fatally overdose.

The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump officially declared the country’s opioid epidemic a national emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the entire Vietnam War.

As the opioid crisis has developed, more and more states have begun holding doctors and opioid manufacturers accountable for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.

“We will be bringing some major lawsuits against people and companies that are hurting our people,” Trump said Thursday. He also spoke about a program similar to Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” initiative.

“More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. And yet some medical professionals would rather take advantage of the addicts than try to help them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this.  We will hold accountable anyone – from street dealers to corporate executives — who illegally contributes to this nationwide epidemic.  And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to defeating this threat to the American people.

India tosses out Gates Foundation due to conflicts of interest with Big Pharma

Search our site for other articles featuring various little known truths about the Gates’. Bill would like to reduce the world’s population using vaccines. I thought these were supposed to save lives? If you watch the video at the link there, you can hear him speak on the topic. It’s definitely a little smoke and ‘mirrorish’, the rationale around how populations will decrease with vaccines. If you think I’m being conspiratorial, do the search as suggested & find the article telling us some of his shots were laced with ingredients that induce abortions. Nice plan Bill. I really do feel that these people who are advocating less folk on the planet (which is amply big enough for all) ought to show the way by expunging themselves first. They never do though. Like the British Royals, they pick first on the vulnerable nations like Africa.
This article is from Natural News…
(Natural News) In the U.S., many look to him as a benevolent humanitarian simply trying to save the world from communicable disease. But in India, billionaire software guru Bill Gates has basically been told to get the hell out the country now that he and his wife Melinda’s infamous foundation has been exposed as nothing more than a vaccine-pushing fraud directly tied to Big Pharma.

India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) announced recently that it is officially cutting ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This announcement comes after it was shown that so-called vaccine “campaigns” conducted on tens of thousands of young girls throughout India back in 2009-2010 that were meant to help protect them from cervical cancer were actually cloaked vaccine trials involving two highly controversial vaccines known to injure and kill.

The vaccines in question are Cervarix by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Gardasil by Merck & Co., both of which are marketed as protecting against the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is claimed to have a link to cervical cancer. Both vaccines come with extreme side effects, and evidence shows that GSK and Merck essentially teamed up with the Gates Foundation to take advantage of young Indian girls and use them as human guinea pigs in trials of the two vaccines.

According to independent journalists, these trials resulted in thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths that were eventually traced back to the two vaccines. Once news of this got back to Indian authorities, an investigation was launched that landed the Gates Foundation in court for serious ethical violations.

Big Pharma’s total corruption and control over U.S. lawmakers now being exposed by the global news media

Natural News) Is it possible that mainstream journalists have rediscovered their integrity and desire to tell the truth? Have the increasingly urgent cries of “fake news!” caused some to find and dust off their consciences? It certainly seems that at least some have been less reluctant to do their jobs recently. The New York Times willingness to finally reveal the predatory control Harvey Weinstein maintained over young Hollywood actresses for decades, despite the mainstream media’s stubborn insistence on shielding celebrities in recent years, is one example of how the tide seems to be turning.

And now both The Washington Post and The Guardian – those very middle of the river mainstream news outlets – have written scathing exposes of Big Pharma, specifically related to its shameless feeding of the U.S. opioid epidemic.

Of course, independent media outlets like Natural News have been swimming upstream for years to expose the greed of the pharmaceutical giants. The mainstream media, on the other hand, has maintained a deafening silence. (Related: Big Pharma companies have been systematically suppressing your right to purchase cheaper alternatives from other countries.)
