A Retrospective of Duty to Warn Columns from 2015 (Still Relevant)

(A Look Back at Some Old Columns that Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, Big Medicine, Big Media and Far-too-many Parents Discounted and Ignored)

Gary G. Kohls, MD

I usually try not to pay too much attention to the ubiquitous and repetitious, end-of-year summaries that media outlets feel compelled to publish in the week leading up to New Year’s Day. Not a lot of original journalism gets done during the last week of the year. The week after Christmas is vacation time for a lot of newspapers’ employees. Recycling old news reports from the past year is something even a newspaper’s unpaid interns can do. So, at the risk of disappointing some readers, I have decided to do what some other journalists are doing for this week’s column – looking backwards, But my motivation for recycling a three- year-old column is different than most retrospectives, and it is this: The articles from 2015 that I chose to re-publish exactly 3 years ago are those that I felt at the time (and still feel today) were the most important of the various columns about multitude of iatrogenic neurological issues that I wrote back in 2015. The articles below will also be the most threatening to various segments of the “health” industry establishment that have been neglecting to truthfully and fully informing us consumers of drugs and vaccines about the dangers of the unaffordable substances that most of us consume so obediently. For those inclined to educate themselves more thoroughly in these vitally important topics of drug and vaccine safety, I have included weblinks to the original articles. My columns average about 2500 words each, so they may not be readable (or understandable) for

1) those with a lack of interest in real (and documentable) medical science,

2) those with short attention spans,

3) those of limited intelligence or

4) those who blindly support the dominant for profit medical economic system that is threatening the neurological, physical and mental health of our increasingly chronically ill, over-screened, over-diagnosed, over-vaccinated, over-medicated, over-radiated, sleep-deprived and malnourished infants, children and adults.

The articles below will document the rationale for those assertions. Many of the highlighted articles are concerned with the over-vaccination of infants and children all over the Big Pharma-infiltrated world. The decades since 1986 have been filled with mandatory over-vaccination agendas that have spawned epidemics of autism spectrum disorders, vaccine-induced autoimmune disorders and many other chronic childhood illnesses among the fully-vaccinated populations. There is a vast amount of basic and clinical science that has been published on vaccination safety issues, but perhaps the best single source of information comes from the testimony of 19 world-class experts on vaccines who gave presentations at the 2011 Vaccine Safety Conference. As expected, this conference, as has been the pattern for every other such conference, was black-listed by every mainstream media outlet that profits from Big Pharma’s highly profitable drug advertising. The videos of 11 of the 22 presentations that were made over the 6-day conference have been archived at:   http://www.vaccinesafetyconference.com/presentation.html.  For those folks who are interested in accurate medical information, I suggest spending time on that website studying the evidence that refutes the corrupted science of the various amoral multinational pharmaceutical corporations that have been in charge of medical education and medical practice for far too long.

January 8, 2015 This Species is Amusing Itself to Death: The Coroner’s Report for the Future Inhabitants of our Dying Planet

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/01/08/4642_this_species_is_amusing_itself_to_death

“And when they found our shadows (grouped ‘round the TV sets),  they ran down every lead; they repeated every test;  they checked out all the data in their lists.  And then the alien anthropologists  admitted they were still perplexed,  but on eliminating every other reason for our sad demise they logged the only explanation left:  This species has amused itself to death.” - Roger Waters  

“Apathy and indifference are nurtured in the modern age as most peoples’ free time is frittered away with worthless trivia like ball games, computer games, movies and soaps, and fiddling with their mobile phones. These distractions might be fun, but after most of them you’ve learnt nothing of any value, and remain ignorant, malleable and suggestible, which is just how the elites want you.” - Clive Maund

Feb 12, 2015 What’s Behind Big Pharma’s Measles Media Blitz?

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/02/11/4787_whats_behind_bigpharmas_measles_media_blitz

”The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) leadership knows very well that vaccines cause autism. We need not waste any more efforts in trying to educate them; we need to indict them.”  – David Ayoub, MD February 19, 2015 Vaccine Induced Immune Overload and the Epidemic of Chronic Autoimmune Childhood Diseases

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/02/18/4846_vaccine_induced_immune_overload_and_the_epidemic-1  

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair “No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Wilson Reagan,

as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die, become chronically ill with vaccine-induced autoimmune disorders or are otherwise disabled from vaccine injuries. (That law has led directly to the reckless, liability-free development of scores of new, over-priced, inadequately-tested-for-either-safety-or-long-term-effectiveness, potentially “block-buster” vaccines, now numbering over 250 that are still in the devel0pmental pipeline. The question that must be asked of Big Medicine’s practitioners: “How will the CDC, the AMA, the AAFP and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) fit any more innately neurotoxic vaccines into the current “well-baby” over-vaccination schedule?”

Feb. 26th, 2015 Drug-Induced Dementia isn’t Alzheimer’s

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/02/25/4885_everything_that_glitters_isnt_gold_and_drug

“More than 50 conditions can cause or mimic the symptoms of dementia.” and “Alzheimer’s (can only be) distinguished from other dementias at autopsy.” - from a Harvard University Health Publication entitled “What’s Causing Your Memory Loss? It Isn’t Necessarily Alzheimer’s”

March 12, 2015 What we Don’t Know About America’s Childhood Over-Vaccination Programs

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/03/11/4952_what_we_dont_know_about_americas_childhood_vaccine

“The steadily increasing patterns of physical and/or mental illnesses among American children show no signs of abating. Unless this issue is definitively addressed, at some future time the process will pass a point of no return socially and economically from the sheer numbers of incapacitated children.”  – Harold Buttram, MD  

“The NIH (National Institutes of Health) is incapable of conducting conflict-free research. While the motivation for refusing to allow this critical research to go forward is likely more related to fear of what such studies would reveal, it is clear that the system managing our vaccine program is corrupt beyond repair and needs a complete overhaul.”  – Lori Mellwain, National Autism Association board chair

March 26, 2015 The Red Lake School Shootings, 10th Anniversary: Mixing Drugs, Guns, Crushing Poverty, Generational and Institutional Racism, and Predatory Capitalism Doesn’t Work

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/03/26/5031_the_red_lake_school_shootings_10th_anniversary Under the crazy-making and neurotoxic influence of 60 mg of Prozac (!!), Jeff Weise, age 16, went to his high school and shot and killed a security guard, a teacher, 5 students, and then suicided, leaving a total of 10 dead and 7 wounded. Weise had reportedly had had his dose of Prozac increased to 60 mg per day by his physician. (Note: The usual starting dose of Prozac for adults is 10 - 20 mg/day and 8% of the population lacks the liver enzymes to metabolize and de-toxify SSRI drugs, thus becoming instantly toxic from the drugs.)  

“Most drugs that can cause suicide, including the antidepressants, mood-stabilizers, antipsychotics, smoking cessation drugs and others, can also cause violence. The akathisia, psychotic decompensation, or emotional disinhibition these drugs trigger that lead some to suicide, lead others to violence. There is some awareness, but considerable resistance to the notion that prescription drugs can be addictive. Treatment-induced (iatrogenic) violence lies in a medical blind spot - no doctor wants to contemplate the possibility that she may have had a role in the deaths of innocent third parties.” -- David Healy, MD

(http://www.madinamerica.com/2012/08/the-hidden-gorilla/)  

“Nobody in the media, to my knowledge, has had the courage to report exactly what the drugs that all these school shooters were taking or withdrawing from at the time of the shootings, nor have they interviewed the prescribing physicians, hospitals or clinics to find out the rationale for prescribing drugs that have known suicide- and violence-inducing effects. Therefore nothing has been learned from these important and endlessly repeated and potentially teachable moments, probably because revealing these inconvenient facts would be economically and medico-legally risky for the sacred cows of Big Pharma, Big Insurance and Big Medicine.” – Martha Rosenberg, from her OpEd column at: http://www.opednews.com/articles/Are-Soldiers-Suicides-Caus-by-Martha-Rosenberg-101015-973.html)

April 1, 2015 What Psych Drugs was the Lufthansa Co-Pilot Taking? http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/04/01/5073_what_psych_drugs_was_lufthansa_co_pilot_taking

“Even at normal doses, taking psychiatric drugs can produce suicidal thinking, violent behavior,  aggressiveness,  extreme anger,  hostility, irritability, loss of ability to control impulses, rage reactions, hallucinations, mania, acute psychotic episodes, akathisia, and bizarre, grandiose, highly elaborated destructive plans, including mass murder.” - From Gary G. Kohls, MD’s Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter # 296: “Drug Studies Connecting Psychotropic Drugs with Acts of Violence” (unpublished) 

April 9, 2015 What Journalists, Lawyers, Laypersons and Healthcare Providers Need to Know About Psychotropic Drugs

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/04/08/5117_what_journalists_lawyers_laypersons_and_healthcare

“Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs can cause agitation, severe depression, hallucinations, aggressiveness, hypomania, akathisia, fear, terror, panic, fear of insanity, failing self-confidence, restlessness, irritability, aggression, an urge to destroy and, in the worst cases, an urge to kill.” – From Gary G. Kohls, MD’s Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter # 296: “Drug Studies Connecting Psychotropic Drugs with Acts of Violence” (unpublished) 

April 16, 2015 Open Letter to Eric Holder Regarding Big Pharma’s Campaign to Get Every Pre-Adolescent Child in America Vaccinated for HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/04/15/5155_open_letter_to_eric_holder_regarding_the_big  

“There is a serious problem with vaccine safety. Vaccine aluminum adjuvant has adverse neurological effects, at dosages that are recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). Vaccine critics are supported by the science. Parents refusing to vaccinate according to the recommended CDC schedule are supported by the science. Use aluminum-containing vaccines with great caution, or not at all. In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders.” - C. A. Shaw, PhD, Neural Dynamics Research Group, University of British Colombia

“I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on the incidence of cervical cancer (30-40 years from now) and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. There is far too much financial interest for these medicines to be withdrawn.” - Bernard Dalbergue, MD (former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck & Co)

April 30, 2015 Aluminum and the Neurotoxicity of Vaccines: Information that the Vaccine Industry tries to keep hidden

reader.com/articles/2015/04/30/5226_aluminum_and_the_neurotoxicity_of_vaccines “…no adequate studies have been conducted to assess the safety of simultaneous administration of different vaccines to young children.” Nor has there been “ any toxicological evaluation about concomitant administration of aluminum with other known toxic compounds which are routine constituents of commercial vaccine preparations, e.g., formaldehyde, formalin, mercury, phenoxyethanol, phenol, sodium borate, polysorbate 80, glutaraldehyde.” - L. Tomljenovic, PhD,  and C.A. Shaw, PhD, Vaccine safety researchers  

May 7, 2015 Mitochondrial Collateral Damage Thanks to Big Pharma: Iatrogenic Drug- and Vaccine-induced Mitochondrial Disorders

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/05/07/5262_mitochondrial_collateral_damage_thanks_to_big

“Mitochondrial damage is now understood to play a role in a wide range of seemingly unrelated disorders such as schizophrenia, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Recently it has become known that iatrogenic (physician or treatment-caused) mitochondrial damage explains many adverse reactions from medications.” -- John Neustadt, MD and Steven Pieczenik, MD “All classes of psychotropic drugs have been documented to damage mitochondria, as have statin medications, analgesics such as acetaminophen, and many others.” – John Neustadt, MD and Steven Pieczenik, MD May 21, 2015 On Being Sane In Insane Places

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/05/21/5330_on_being_sane_in_insane_places Dr Rosenhan makes the following important points in his ground-breaking 1973 Stanford University study:

“If sanity and insanity exist, how shall we know them?” – D. L. Rosenhan, PhD

1) The sane are not ‘sane’ all of the time, nor are those labeled ‘insane’ actually insane all of the time.

2) Bizarre behaviors in people constitute only a small fraction of total behavior. Similarly, violent, even homicidal people are nonviolent most of the time.

3) Psychiatric diagnoses, even those made in error, carry with them personal, legal and social stigmas that can be impossible to shake and which often last a lifetime.” June 4, 2015 Cognitive Dissonance and the Psychopharmaceutical Industry

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/06/03/5381_cognitive_dissonance_and_the_psychopharmaceutical

…conflicts of interest and biases exist in virtually every field of medicine, particularly those that rely heavily on drugs or devices. It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” – Marcia Angell, MD (who was fired from her editorship when she wrote a NEJM editorial about Big Pharma’s toxic influence on the practice of medicine.)

July 23, 2015 Was the Batman Shooter a Victim of First Medical and Then Legal Malpractice? (How the Aurora, Colorado Massacre Could Have Been Prevented)

\http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/07/23/5684_was_the_batman_shooter_a_victim_of_first_medical

“James Holmes’ psychiatrist, Dr Lynne Fenton, testified that, at the patient’s last visit (before the otherwise” irrational” mass shooting), she had increased the dosages of all three of Holmes’s (psychoactive) drugs (Zoloft – an SSRI “antidepressant”, Klonopin, a highly addictive benzodiazepine/tranquilizer and propranolol), admitting to actually increasing the Zoloft dose to 150 mg per day, an intoxicating, even potentially lethal dose!! (The normal starting dose for Zoloft is 25 – 50 mg per day.)”Gary G. Kohls, MD (From the Duty to Warn article)

“People don’t get it. The media doesn’t get it and they don’t want to get it. Billions of dollars are riding on the drugs that Dr. Lynne Fenton prescribed to her patient, the soon-to-be-assassin, James Holmes. And when billions of dollars in potentially lost revenues are hanging in the balance, the interested parties (in Big Pharma, Big Medicine and the co-opted Big Media) take action. They’re serious about their money. They don’t screw around. You see, if James Holmes was, for example, shown to have been taking Prozac, all of a sudden no one wants to take it. If doctors prescribe it to patients, the patients say, ‘Hey, wasn’t this the drug that nutcase Holmes took before he killed all those people in the theater?’’ - Jon Rappaport, of No More Fake News.com, commenting on the Aurora theater shooting. 

“The bulk of American media is afraid to go after psychiatric drugs as a cause of violence. This fear stems, in part, from the sure knowledge that expert attack dogs are waiting in the wings, funded by big-time pharmaceutical companies.” – Jon Rappaport August 27, 2015 Roll Up Your Sleeves Folks, There are 271 New Vaccines in Big Pharma’s Pipeline: Question: Into Whose Bodies Will They be Injected?

http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/08/26/5823_roll_up_your_sleeves_folks_there_are_271_new? “No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed the pharmaceutical industry- inspired (and Big Pharma lobby written) National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986.

“Today, more than 7,000 medicines are in development globally, all of which have the potential to help patients in the United States and around the world.” -  PhRMA (the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America), the drug industry’s trade association and powerful lobbying group

“According to another data source, there are 3,400 medicines in development today just in the United States, an increase of 40 percent since 2005.” “PhRMA also says that today ‘the 271 vaccines in development span a wide array of diseases and employ exciting new scientific strategies and technologies. These potential vaccines – all in human clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – include 137 for infectious diseases, 99 for cancer, 15 for allergies and 10 for neurological disorders.’” (http://phrma.org/press-release-medicines-in-development-vaccines#sthash.rI4cQ6Tg.dpuf)

 

As usual, Dr Kohls warns against the abrupt discontinuation of any psychiatric drug because of the common, often serious withdrawal symptoms that can occur in patients who have been taking any dependency-inducing psychoactive drug, whether legal or illicit.  He recommends close consultation with an aware, informed physician who is familiar with drug withdrawal syndromes, the dangers of psychiatric drug use and the nutritional needs of the drug-toxified and nutritionally-depleted brain.
