Go ahead and call me a sensationalist clickbait artist if you wish, but i chose the title because there seems to be an obvious link between SSRI drugs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and mass shootings. As a matter of fact, SSRI drugs (aka antidepressants) have been the common thread in nearly every mass shooting since and including Columbine. One of the very few exceptions has been the Paddock-Vegas shooting where Stephen Paddock had been prescribed Valium (diazepam) which is not an SSRI drug, but which shares many of the same side effects.
In the interest of not biting the hand that feeds you, the mainstream media, which receives a massive amount of money from the pharmaceutical industry, will not properly investigate the obvious link between SSRI drugs and ultra-violent outbursts such as mass shootings.
As of 2014 the number of Americans on SSRI drugs was approximately 1 in 8 and that number is growing rapidly since doctors are pushing these immensely dangerous drugs like candy to treat a variety of issues that have little or nothing to do with depression.
You can read more about the Paddock-Vegas shooting in the article, Las Vegas Shooting 1-Oct-2017 – An acoustic analysis and personal impressions, here on 12bytes.org.
The real reason for this post is this:
The "norm and practice" of Pharmaceutical companies is to vehemently deny the most serious adverse side effects of their products. This industry’s success in concealing the truth about the serious harm caused by their drugs and vaccines has been aided and abetted by government officials in the FDA and the CDC.
In the case of Prozac, and the other drugs in the SSRI antidepressant family of drugs, the worst adverse effects include uncharacteristic violent outbursts in the form of suicide and homicide — including mass shooting sprees. Manufacturers of these drugs have committed multiple serious crimes to cover-up the deadly side-effects of these drugs.
