False & Misleading advertising is just what it is. If not controlled by the powerful psychiatrists and 'prescription drug lords', this would have been stopped immediately. Their is no scientic proof of chemical imbalance, it is a lie.

Commercials and ads claim that any mis-emotion, non-optimum feelings and wide range of normal behaviors are mental illness and are convincing people that they and their children need mind altering narcotics and drugs and that they are not responsible for their actions.

How did the psychiatrists become so powerful? Do you know that citizens all over the world are still being involuntarily committed to mental institutions? And, being administered electric shock treatments against their will and that lobotomies are still being performed. Can you imagine being taken against your will and forced to endure shock treatments or having part of your brain cut away? Can a civilized culture commit such barbaric acts on humanity?

How can 9 or 18 million children be mentally ill and need mind altering drugs? Is it not obvious to you and the world that the drug pushers are psychiatrists and the vested interested of drug manufacturers have infiltrated society; our legal system and schools.

Get real, even babies a few months old are being prescribed mind altering drugs. Psychiatrists would love to have you believe drugs work because psychiatry does not. Look at their statistics and abuse of their power! They are above the law. Look at the education statistics! You will see that when the psychiatrists infiltrated the school system illiteracy and school related violence increased dramatically.

Child protection services have removed children from their homes solely because their parents refused to put them on drugs. Can you imagine for a moment your children being taken away from you because you would not put them on drugs? Or your child dying or killing themselves after being on these drugs? Or being refused an education because they are not on drugs.

Are you aware that school funding is greater if more children are on mind altering drugs? Are you curious enough to find out who or what group is promoting this? Who profits?

When you realize we have a society of drugged children it is easier to understand how children can commit horrific crimes. Many of the so called school shooters were on these psychotropic drugs! The kids they killed are just a small part of the tragedy. Please help our children. Get this false advertising 'drugs/the cure-all' off the television and out of publications.

Let's instead focus on adequate sleep, nutrition, excercise, back to the basics education, family values and responsibility for one's actions, medical doctors, scientific tests and real scientific diagnosis. Allergies, the large amount of sugar & sugar substitutes along with a poor diet and lack of excercise can be the cause of many ills that are misdiagnosed as mental problems.

Please, for the sake of our children, our future leaders, and society, please, please use your influence and power to stop this atrocity. I implore you
to do something.

Mrs. Schaffner
