“How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child” Shown at Florida Human Rights Office

The documentary, “Dead Wrong” tells the story of how children are being put at risk by the use of psychiatric medications which have no valid scientific basis of use.

Clearwater, United States - June 13, 2018 /PressCable/ —

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida (CCHR), announced recently that they will be hosting a showing of the popular documentary, “Dead Wrong” in their downtown facility. The full-screen showing will be presented to visitors at no charge.

The theme of “Dead Wrong” is that children are being put at risk by the use of psychiatric medications which have no valid scientific basis of use. Documented instances of children dying as a result of psychiatric medication are included on the CCHR site (www.cchr.org).

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), “We do not have an independent, valid test for ADHD, and there is no data to indicate that ADHD is due to a brain malfunction.” (NIH Consensus statement) [1]

A major danger is that childhood behaviors can be diagnosed as mental disorders for various reasons including Federal reimbursements. Parents who feel their child is being forced into taking prescription mental drugs are advised by CCHR to follow these steps:

1) Demand to see the lab test, brain scan, blood test or X-ray that proves the child has a mental disorder.

2) If drugs are recommended for a child, print the international drug warnings for the doctor or psychiatrist. (Practitioners may sometimes get their data on drug safety from sales reps.)

3) If the psychiatrist or doctor claims evidence of a “disorder”, parents may forward the claim information to CCHR for review.

4) Be aware of non-drug, non-harmful methods for treating childhood issues. Parents have a right to another opinion, and data on alternatives.

Following are the number of children currently on psychiatric drugs in the United States:

0-1 Years 274,804 babies on psychiatric drugs

2-3 Years 370,778 toddlers on psychiatric drugs

4-5 Years 500,948 kindergarteners on psychiatric drugs

6-12 Years 4,130,340 schoolkids on psychiatric drugs

13-17 Years 3,617,593 youths on psychiatric drugs

Diagnosis for these prescriptions is not done by medical test, but a checklist of behaviors according to the viewpoint of the observer.

“The epidemic of child drugging in the U.S. is not in the interests of these children or their parents,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “False diagnoses must be resisted if we are to hope for competent future generations.”

The Latest: The new alternative facts: 'Truth isn't truth'

Aug 20, 2018

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local): 11:50 a.m. Move over, alternative facts. Now, truth isn't truth. President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani used the line Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd. Giuliani was trying to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller's team wouldn't accomplish much because of the he-said-she-said nature of witnesses' recollections. Giuliani says it's "silly" to say Trump should testify "because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry" because "it's somebody's version of the truth....

When Ms. Franklin calls: Reporter reflects on Queen of Soul

Aug 20, 2018

NEW YORK — When I got the chance to interview Aretha Franklin for the first time in 2001, I was already a bundle of nerves: Even though it was just over the phone, I'd be talking to THE Queen of Soul! You could get no closer to rock 'n' roll royalty than the Queen herself. So my trepidation was magnified when a colleague told me not to expect much: Franklin was famously guarded and known for giving short, to-the-point answers and little in the way of introspection. Sure enough, when we spoke on the topic at hand — a VH1...

Ariana Grande tears up as she recalls Manchester tragedy

Aug 20, 2018

NEW YORK — The very mention of Manchester still brings Ariana Grande to tears. The singer cried during an interview Friday with Ebro for Beats 1 on Apple Music as she shared thoughts on the 2017 concert in England, when a suicide bomber killed 22 people. She said that terrorists "want you to be afraid," adding that those who just heard about it in the news had moved on. But for her and others, the challenge became just to "live in the moment" and not be overwhelmed by fear. Her album "Sweetener" includes a song for Manchester survivors, "Get Well...
