Issue Areas/Comments
I would like to say that America and its civilisation is on the best way to become a drug nation. I do not enjoy this constant advertisement for drugs especially in the area of mental health. Those drugs just cover up symptoms and drug the person. With all the personality altering and dangerous side effects these drugs bring along, they are much more a danger than a real help for the person in need. Especially those drugs promoting that they handle a chemical imbalance in the brain are an outragous lie, because there is absolutely no scientific proof for the statement that the drug cures a chemical imbalance in the brain nor that such an imbalance exists at all! In my eyes people who believe this myth are betrayed instead of helped. I think it is time to look out for real solutions for human problems and stop pretending that drugging a person in need is a 'cure'! Thank you,
Antje Weinberger-Harrison
