I am glad you are having this hearing. I am very interested in seeing that companies who sell psychiatric drugs are not allowed to promote false information, namely, that emotional irregularities are caused by the brain and chemical imbalances (no scientific evidence exists that proves this), and that these drugs are not potentially dangerous (much evidence to the contrary) and effective (much evidence to the contrary). It makes one strongly suspect that the drug companies, to a greater or lesser degree, have control of FDA actions (or inactions).

Thanks for the Hearing.

Best,

Joe Ballman
