Antidepressants suppress microliga activity (aka they suppress the first line of the brain's immune system).

Why Psychiatry Isn't Scientific (For Laymen)
It's pretty simple to figure once I had a change in perspective; I really wish I figured this out earlier.

Health Risks to Babies When Antidepressants Used During Pregnancy
Oh dear, drug companies are quite silent on this matter…

How is autism a neurodevelopmental disorder?
It's starting to bother me now. For all the talk about autism being "neurodevelopmental"; there is no objective analysis used to diagnose autism; no explanation of the mechanism of autism; no clear and consistent explanation. There are only vague explanations of causes. (The lack of a clear explanation *alone* is not necessarily a red flag.) For reference to what *actual* developmental disorders are: * Down Syndrome is a ~~developmental~~ genetic disorder; because the triplicated chromosome 21 affects the **development** of the human body; usually chromosome 21 is only duplicated when formed. (Hence the disorder.) Chromosomes regulates the stability of DNA; so the triplication of a chromosome changes the regulation of the DNA. Thus changing development of the human body. (Though who's to say that the duplication of chromosome is the "order" of human development?) * Fetal alcohol syndromes are conditions because the development of the fetus is impacted due to the mother's use of alcohol; but the mental health industry designates these syndromes as developmental disorders; but who's to say what normal development is? So, __*where* and *how* does autism affect the development of neurons?!__ Even before I learnt about the anti-psychiatry movement; I was pretty bothered that I *could not* find a clear and definable explanation of what autism is and I didn't find any explanation on the *mechanism* of autism. All I could find was that "it manifests in families"; "it's caused by some genes"; and "we have no test but we're sure it exists"; which are *unhelpfully* vague and useless. If institutions are going to say that a disorder is neurodevelopmental; then give a good explanation that shows the disorder in development of the neurons! I have the same problem with ADHD and Tourette's. --- Eventually, I just came to a much more realistic conclusion: Autism is a bullshit label, like most mental disorders, made up by Psychiatry to promote eugenics and individualism. --- EDIT: Down syndrome isn't even *directly* a developmental disorder; it's a *genetic* disorder.

Fear and Loathing in the ECT Debate
Please burn this fradulent field down to hell. It was a mistake to let it exist to begin with.

So companies basically scammed people. I'm not surprised.

There is too much liberal bullshit in antipsych.

EDIT: Oh dear. It's by Scientology apparently. never noticed until now. oops.

Joanna has gotta be a closet Marxist at this point…
