“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.”

Warner Bros. crackdown puts Dark Mark over Potter festivals

Jun 18, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — Warner Bros. is cracking down on local Harry Potter fan festivals around the country, saying it's necessary to halt unauthorized commercial activity. Fans, however, liken the move to Dementors sucking the joy out of homegrown fun, while festival directors say they'll transfigure the events into generic celebrations of magic. "It's almost as if Warner Bros. has been taken over by Voldemort, trying to use dark magic to destroy the light of a little town," said Sarah Jo Tucker, a 21-year-old junior at Chestnut Hill College, which hosts a Quidditch tournament that coincides with the annual suburban Philadelphia festival....
