FDA Approval of Antipsychotics for Children Mirrors Bayer, AMA Approvals of Heroin as Cough Medicine for Children

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) Today an FDA advisory panel approved the prescribing of powerful mind-altering chemicals for children. Seroquel, Zyprexa and Goedon have now been approved by the advisory panel to be prescribed to children as young as 10 years old to treat a fictitious disease invented by psychiatrists and given the name "bipolar disorder." (There is no such thing as a bipolar disorder disease. It is merely a name assigned to children demonstrating the predictable side effects of correctable dietary imbalances.)

In light of this disturbing decision, it is instructive to remember the history of pharmaceutical medicine and children. One hundred and ten years ago, Bayer marketed heroin to children as a non-addictive alternative to morphine. Did I say "non-addictive?" Yes, it's right from the company's own marketing materials. It just goes to show you that drug companies have been lying to the public (and poisoning the children) for well over one hundred years.

Much like the FDA's present-day endorsement of antipsychotic drugs for children, the American Medical Association endorsed Bayer Heroin for kids, touting its ability to ease coughs. Heroin definitely eases coughs. And so does smoking meth! In offering this endorsement, the AMA apparently borrowed some of the FDA's screwy logic, which claims "The benefits outweigh the risks."

This means, of course, that the benefits to the drug companies outweigh the risks to the children!

During all this, of course, the AMA utterly failed to inform parents that heroin was a highly addictive narcotic drug. So parents were dosing their babies with heroin -- all with the full approval of the American Medical Association!

Today, the FDA spearheads the promotion of drugs to children, doing its best to promote toxic synthetic chemicals that artificially alter brain chemistry while outlawing any mention of natural remedies that work much better (like omega-3 oils, which are natural brain chemistry stabilizers). The FDA also utterly fails to ban toxic chemical food ingredients known to destroy healthy brain chemistry (like MSG and artificial food coloring).

Thus, in one hundred and ten years, western medicine has learned nothing! It still poisons the children with the full approval of "health authorities" all while enriching the powerful drug companies.

Big Pharma's ties to Nazi Germany

In remembering the endorsement by the AMA of heroin treatments for children, it's helpful to consider a bit more of the history of Big Pharma:

The name Heroin comes from the German word heroisch, which means "heroic." Take enough heroin, and you might feel heroic, too. (At least until the high is gone.)

Bayer, of course, is a German pharmaceutical company with all sorts of interesting ties to Nazi Germany and the medical experiments conducted on Jewish prisoners during World War II. In 1956, for example, Fritz ter Meer became the chairman of Bayer. What's so interesting about that? This was after he served seven years in prison for carrying out experiments on Jewish prisoners at Auschwitz.

One minute you're committing crimes against humanity, and the next minute you're the Chairman of Bayer. Amazing, isn't it? (Amazing how deep the criminal backgrounds go for these Big Pharma people, it seems...)

More recently, Bayer has been found contaminating the U.S. rice crop with genetically engineered rice seeds. Read more details here:

There's a lot more you probably didn't know about the true history of Big Pharma's dangerous experiments on humans. Read up on the history of human medical experimentation in the United States here:

Pushing narcotics for children - the Big Pharma way!

Bayer eventually pulled its heroin from the market in 1910, by the way. In 1914, the U.S. Congress passed the Harrison Narcotics Tax Act, which allowed heroin to continue to be prescribed as a medicine. In wasn't until 1924 that the U.S. Congress banned heroin sales outright. See:

Interestingly, 85 years later, narcotics are routinely prescribed to U.S. schoolchildren as "ADHD medications" (they are actually amphetamine drugs). And now, with the help of the FDA, drugs like Seroquel and Zyprexa can be legally prescribed to children by doctors.

And yet even that is just a hodge-podge of FDA theater, because in reality, doctors have been illegally prescribing these drugs to children for well over a decade, and not one doctor has ever been arrested or fined for engaging in this "off-label prescribing" of dangerous, mind-altering chemicals. In fact, the FDA's decision today isn't really about medical science at all: It's about sweeping under the rug the routine crimes of America's psychiatrists who have been poisoning children's minds with dangerous drugs for years on end.

And rather than enforcing existing medical laws that forbid off-label prescribing of drugs, the FDA apparently finds it more convenient to simply legalize the criminal behavior of psychiatrists via a politically-motivated vote.

A hundred and ten years from now, this decision will be viewed with the same disbelief that we now evoke when looking back at the AMA's endorsement of heroin cough syrup for children. Future citizens of our world will look back and ask themselves, "Were these people on drugs?"

And the answer, of course, is yes, the decision makers are all on drugs. They're taking drugs, pushing drugs and profiting from drugs. And now they're going after the children with those same drugs because there's more profit to be found by expanding the age range of victims who can be targeted for financial exploitation by the pharmaceutical industry. Children are simply the next target on the corporate profits priority list.

Let's be honest here: These are crimes against our children. And those FDA advisory panel members who voted to whitewash these crimes are, themselves, guilty of crimes against humanity (and should be arrested and tried accordingly).

The Nazis gassed Jewish children with Zyklon B. America now openly drugs its own children with Zyprexa.

Both chemicals, not coincidentally, were invented and manufactured by the same industry: The pharmaceutical industry.
