CCHR Int Newsletter — July 2013

Last month FOX National News released a three-part series on the drugging of our nation’s military, produced by award-winning investigative reporter Douglas Kennedy, and assisted by CCHR International.

The first part of this series, “Military’s Reliance on Powerful Psych Drugs,” tells the story of Marine Corporal Andrew White who survived the 2005 war in Iraq, but unfortunately, says his father Stanley, he could not survive the drug cocktail prescribed to him by his caregivers at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Andrew was prescribed 19 different drugs from the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA), and was on 5 drugs for insomnia when he accidentally died in his sleep in 2011. A cocktail that included the antidepressant Paxil, the anti-anxiety Klonopin and the anti-psychotic Seroquel. Click here for part one of this series.

The second part of this series, “Military Prescribing Powerful Anti-psychotics,” follows the tragic death of former Navy Corpsman, Kelly Greece, who overdosed on the cocktail of drugs she was prescribed by her doctor from the VA. She was prescribed Klonopin, Adderall, Seroquel, and at least 15 other powerful psychiatric drugs. Click here for part two of this series.

The third part of this series, “Drug Treatments for Vets Doing More Harm than Good?” tells the story of Iraqi war veteran Charles Perkins who, after returning home from Iraq, saw 13 different VA psychiatrists within one year, many of them giving him different diagnoses. Perkins ended up receiving 25 prescriptions for 25 different drugs. Once Perkins saw his own doctor, he was told “You are lucky to be alive.” Click here for part three of this series.

“When you have so many soldiers on psychiatric drugs, you are producing chronic mental patients.” — Dr. Peter Breggin

CCHR’s Most Popular Documentary: Dead Wrong

Dead Wrong: How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child tells the story of a mother’s mission to discover the truth behind her son’s tragic death.

In her journey to discover what really occurred, Celeste Steubing meets and interviews doctors and health professionals, as well as a group of mothers whose children each fell victim to the harmful effects of mind-altering drugs.

Psychiatrists claim their drugs are safe for children.

Once you hear what eight brave mothers, their families, health experts, drug counselors, doctors, and others have to say, you will come away convinced of one thing…

Psychiatrists are DEAD WRONG.

“Anger, tears, sadness, inspiration. These were all but a few of my reactions to this documentary. I clicked on it to watch about ten minutes of it. 87 minutes later, I am just concluding this documentary. It gripped me. Profoundly helpful, and extremely powerful.”

— Jeremy Lelek, M.A.
