Complete lack of scientific evidence in psychiatry

Pills To Brain

In this compelling article, Dr McLaren takes to task psychiatrist, Ronald Pies who has again insisted that psychiatrists and the institution of psychiatry have never embraced or supported a the completely bogus “chemical imbalance theory” of mental disorder, which has been used to push strong psychotropic drugs on an unwitting population. The result of this completely fabricated theory, which has zero scientific basis is evident in the shocking international and Australian antidepressant usage statistics, as pointed out by Dr McLaren in his article:

“In the UK at present, 16% of the adult population (one in six) take antidepressants. In the US, that figure is 13%, and in Australia, 12%, up from 9.8% just three years ago, and a bare 1% in 1991. Significantly, the length of time people take these drugs is growing, meaning that once they start, they don’t stop. The consumption of these drugs is a social phenomenon, not a disease phenomenon: there is zero evidence to say that the actual incidence of depression in Australia has increased 1200% in one generation.”
