“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.”

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Aug 18, 2018

MIAMI — An Alaska man will spend the rest of his life in prison for the January 2017 Florida airport shooting that left five people dead and six wounded, a federal judge ordered Friday. U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom accepted a plea deal in which Esteban Santiago, 28, agreed to admit to the shooting if prosecutors would not seek the death penalty.

Park, Salas share LPGA Tour lead in rainy Indy

Aug 18, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — Sung Hyun Park relied on the same, steady style that has helped make her one of the LPGA Tour's top players. When her putts kept rolling in Friday, she was virtually unbeatable. Park shot a 9-under 63 for a share of the lead with Lizette Salas during the suspended second round of the Indy Women in Tech Championship. "The best round of the year," the South Korean player said through an interpreter. "My putting overall was what really helped." Salas, the first-round leader after a 62, had a 69 to match Park at 13 under at Brickyard Crossing....

US regulators target Facebook on discriminatory housing ads

Aug 18, 2018

NEW YORK — Federal regulators are alleging that Facebook's advertising tools allow landlords and real estate brokers to engage in housing discrimination. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said in an administrative complaint this week that Facebook violated the Fair Housing Act because its targeting systems allow advertisers to exclude certain audiences, such as families with young children or disabled people, from seeing housing ads. "When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it's the same as slamming the door in someone's face," HUD Assistant Secretary Anna María Farias said...

Justice lawyers try to halt Trump financial records release

Aug 18, 2018

WASHINGTON — Justice Department lawyers asked a federal judge Friday to let them file a legal appeal that could, for now, keep President Donald Trump's critics from getting access to financial records related to his Washington, D.C., hotel. Trump has been fighting multiple lawsuits that argue that foreign representatives' spending money at the Trump International Hotel is a violation of the U.S. Constitution's emoluments clause, which bans federal officials from accepting benefits from foreign or state governments without congressional approval. U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte, who is based in Maryland, ruled last month that one of those lawsuits could...

Judge told to consider protections for Montana grayling fish

Aug 18, 2018

HELENA, Mont. — An appeals court on Friday told a judge to take another look at whether a Montana fish should be protected, saying that U.S. wildlife officials did not consider all environmental factors when they decided against designating the Arctic grayling as a threatened or endangered species. The three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon's 2016 ruling that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's decision not to list the Arctic grayling as threatened or endangered was based on the best available science. Wildlife officials' conclusion that the grayling population was...
