No doubt this research is pressing because the horror of ssri damage to people is now coming to light and the NHS is being flooded with the iatrogenically harmed and are desperate for it to go away....
Thanks for your insightful comment, NZ.
Yes, you are quite right about the damage coming to light. The timeframe for this is interesting, as the United Nations is just now criticizing the use of drugs to treat depression:
United Nations Statement Criticizes Medicalization of Depression on World Health Day
The full statement is here:
And in this statement:
For example, there exists compelling evidence that higher prevalence of depression is strongly linked to early childhood adversities, including toxic stress and sexual, physical and emotional child abuse, as well as to inequalities and violence, including gender based inequalities and gender based violence, and many other adverse conditions which people, especially those in vulnerable situations such as poverty or social exclusion, face when their basic needs are not met and their rights are not protected.
Integrating this evidence and securing human rights entitlements requires a new approach that balances population-based interventions with individual care and support.
But I guess instead of ending child abuse, domestic abuse, and ending poverty, the NHS would rather we all take benzos. That's easier than admitting the enormous harm that has been caused. Yes, I also do believe Big Pharma is behind this, probably in many different ways.
Quite extraordinary and bizarre times we live in.
