"and this can only add to the fun..."
Thanks for that link. Goes to show how widely (over)prescribed these are. Just imagine the lawsuits and the billions in sales lost if this topic of SSRIs and lethally violent behavior by youth and young adults against others is ever allowed to be researched in great depth. Why it hasn't been is obvious from that fact combined with corporate owned government, the how is detailed in the book I mentioned. A smell of that is provided in this excellent technical talk by the author of that book:
Psychotropic Drugs and Children
Michael Moore on Columbine and SSRIs (excerpt from The Drugging of Our Children)
And there's this. Watch at least the first few minutes:
The Drugging of Our Children
I'd be more surprised if he'd shown an early obsession for knitting.
Depends how high up the apple tree the asshole's climbed. You'd have to account for windage when you plot a trajectory too.
Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza.
Are you using Michael Moore as an authority? Jesus.
"Are you using Michael Moore as an authority? Jesus."
He investigated Columbine and made an investigatory documentary on it, so he's an expert on what didn't cause that incident. When he says a possible drug-induced cause should be investigated based upon the contents of the documentary he is being interviewed within, he should be listened to. And I doubt that you've watched any of the supporting videos that I've linked to. Your post "Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza." is an indication of the lack of value of your contributions here, so I shall ignore any further comments from you.
Before everyone goes drinking the kool-aid about SSRIs in tap water, you have to realize that the amounts found, at worst, in studies I've seen don't go beyond 60 nanograms per gram — or 60 parts per billion .
For a frame of reference, regulations allow our drinking water to have up to 200ppb of cyanide, before it's unfit to drink.
So this is stuff that the EPA keeps an eye on, but hasn't even been seen to be even a remote concern in humans.
Delicious. Alright, I'm game.
First: the term "investigate" does not connote unbiased, critical, intellectual, logical, valuable, honest, or meritorious. Investigations and investigators are not of a uniform quality.
Second: "investigatory documentary" is an interesting neologism. I wonder if it means anything at all.
Third: When did movie production become a sufficient condition for expertise?
Fourth: An expert on what didn't cause something? By what measure? I am supremely confident that Columbine was not caused by fast food, Star Trek IV, plastic shopping bags, the Bubonic plague, Lucky Charms, the Space Shuttle, or the Moon. Am I an expert in what didn't cause Columbine, yet? How many more things do I need to add?
Fifth: the phrase "When he says a possible drug-induced cause should be investigated based upon the contents of the documentary he is being interviewed within, he should be listened to." is a very selective depiction of the clip. He's very careful to qualify everything with "maybe" and "perhaps", then turns on the gravitas as he opines about what it would mean if parents knew that Columbine was caused by those drugs. Well, imagine what it would mean if parents knew that Columbine was caused by Christianity? Can you imagine what that would mean? Can you think of all the consequences of that revelation? You could, but that doesn't make it any more likely. What about absolute population? That's been rising steadily. What about bullying? Social disenfranchisement?
Sixth: I, unfortunately, watched part of each linked video. Seeing the name "Gary Null" told me all I needed to know about the content. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Null, he has been noted for: denying the causative link between HIV and AIDS, advocating for dietary treatments in lieu of anti-retroviral drugs; rallying against the H1N1 vaccine because it contains thimerosal, the preservative falsely linked to autism; referring to water fluoridation as "deadly"; claiming that heart disease can be safely and effectively treated with chelation therapy; claiming that aging is the result of not having enough enzymes.
Seventh: Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza.
