Irish Rock Star And Sporting Celeb ‘Bressie’ Talking Nonsense About Depression


“Anxiety, depression,” he explains, “all of these things are caused by a lack of serotonin in your brain. It’s a chemical imbalance, and the one thing sport and physically challenging yourself does, is it gives you serotonin — that’s a fact, no matter who you are. People have this idea about depression; that it’s a ghost, it’s a mythical, magical thing. It’s not. it’s science.”

Looks like Bressie might need to read Dr Terry Lynch’s new book ‘Depression Delusion‘?

Educate yourself Bressie… Depression is not biologically based.. never was.. and your serotonin theory was conjured up by pharmaceutical marketing departments. There is no scientific basis for it.. we’ve all been duped…

Stop promoting psychiatric/pharma- propaganda..

From Dr Terry Lynch:^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author

My next book, “Depression Delusion, Volume One: The Myth of the Brain Chemical Imbalance” (publication date 02 Sept 2015)
I’m delighted to say that my next book is now complete, and will be officially published on 02 September 2015. (Click on cover image to see full cover).I am grateful to Robert Whitaker for his insightful foreword, to Peter Breggin, Lucy Johnstone, Julie Leonovs, Joanna Moncrieff, Mary Maddock, Nick Redman, Pat Bracken, Ted Chabasinski and Brian Lennon for their positive endorsements of this project, endorsements that are included in the book. Thanks also to Marianne Murphy for her ideas and editing.

The core theme of this book is a thorough debunking of the long-promoted falsehood that imbalances of brain chemicals such as serotonin occur in depression. This falsehood meets all of psychiatry’s own criteria for a delusion, and is at least as widely believed as the “flat earth” belief of past centuries, hence the “flat earth” illustration on the cover.

The book covers many other important related topics also, such as why many drug companies are withdrawing from or scaling down their investment in psychiatric drug research (for example, GlaxoSmithKline, manufacturers of Seroxat have pulled out of psychiatric research completely); what groups of medical doctors do actually specialize in and regularly examine the brain (neurologists and neurosurgeons, not psychiatrists); how this depression brain chemical imbalance falsehood has been promoted as a known fact by many psychiatrists, GPs, some psychologists, therapists, authors, organisations, the media, celebrities, aspects of the nutrition industry, and members of the public; a better way to understand depression; implications for informed consent; the unscientific nature of the DSM; the harmful consequences of this falsehood; and many other related topics.

I decided to write a whole book on this falsehood because it is so widely and wrongly believed to be a known fact.

In his foreword, Robert Whitaker has written regarding the claims that chemical imbalances occur in depression:

“The chemical imbalance story encourages us to think of ourselves as governed by the chemicals in our brains, with this chemical control seemingly  disconnected from the many life events, that, at least according to past understandings of human nature, could be understood to dramatically alter one’s moods. We are mechanistic machines, and if our mood molecules are out of balance, with this imbalance presented to us as a “disease,” then it makes perfect sense to think that a solution must lie in a pill that fixes that imbalance. But is the claim true? Did scientific investigations find that this is indeed so? Every society would do itself a favor if it publicly sought to answer that question. In this book, Terry Lynch has done just that. And in so doing, he has told, step by step, how psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry constructed and sold a false story to the public. By the end of this book, readers will be asking a new question: How could this falsehood have endured for so long? . . . he makes a clear case for why society needs to put aside its delusion about chemical imbalances and seek to rethink what we do or don’t know about depression and how to best treat people so diagnosed. By the end, it is impossible to imagine anyone reading this book could believe in the chemical imbalance story. Terry Lynch, in this book, has given it a thorough burial.”

In endorsing this book, American psychiatrist Peter Breggin describes the book as “an inestimable service to the health professions and to humanity by liberating them from a dogma that inhibits real psychological and spiritual growth”.

I include a picture of the cover.

Dr Terry Lynch’s ‘Depression Delusion’ Released Now On Amazon.Com

Professor Ivor Browne, consultant psychiatrist, former professor of psychiatry at University College, Dublin said of Dr Terry Lynch:

…“The following is my endorsement of Dr. Terry Lynch and his work: The prevailing approach to psychiatry reduces people to a biological collection of tissues and organs, human suffering to unidentified brain abnormalities, and the alleviation of human suffering to various substances whose main action is to change how people feel rather than any specific or necessary remedial effect within the body. If anything, the situation is getting worse as the years pass. For the past ten years or more, Terry Lynch has been one of the very few doctors within the medical profession in Ireland who has been prepared to question the psychiatric understanding of and approach to human suffering. He has consistently called for a reappraisal of how human suffering and distress is interpreted and responded to within modern western societies, a reappraisal that I support, that I believe is urgently required in the public interest. Would that there were more enlightened doctors and psychiatrists in the country”…

(Letter, 16th September 2013).

I am delighted to announce that Dr Terry Lynch’s new book ‘Depression Delusion‘ is out now on Amazon. Terry is most well known for his book best selling book ‘Beyond Prozac‘, and his other book ‘Selfhood‘ comes also highly recommended, however personally I think that ‘Depression Delusion‘ will rock the psychiatric establishment and psychiatric drugs industry to its foundations (or at least it should!). The more widely read it becomes the more unstable the ‘chemical imbalance theory’ will become. It’s about time that someone buried this absurd theory, and Terry has done just that.

My review of ‘Depression Delusion’ can be found here.

Phil Hickey, and Leonie’s Fennel’s, reviews of ‘Depression Delusion‘ can be found here:

“…In this truly remarkable — and meticulously researched — volume, Dr. Lynch annihilates psychiatry’s cherished chemical imbalance theory of depression.  Every facet of this theory, which the author correctly calls a delusion, is critically analyzed and found wanting.  Example after example is provided of psychiatrists promoting this fiction, the factual and logical errors of which are clearly exposed in Dr. Lynch’s lucid, seamless, and highly readable prose.” (Phil Hickey)

“..This fabulous book is a must for everyone who believes that they are suffering from a brain chemical imbalance (an unwitting Bressie springs to mind). Dr Lynch is one very brave man to take on the so-called ‘experts’ in this forthright manner. It’s a David and Goliath situation. Will the truth win out? Is this generation ready to see that the so-called ‘experts’ are in fact philistines? I sure hope so! Huge respect to Dr Terry Lynch for this much-needed exposé. His book is out in September and I look forward to the fall-out. ‘Depression Delusion Volume One: The Myth of the Brain Chemical Imbalance’ is most definitely a keeper…” (Leonie Fennell)

The following videos give a glimpse into the amazing work Dr Terry Lynch has been doing for sufferers of mental health problems for the past two decades. Dr Lynch is a sincere patient advocate and I recommend ‘Depression Delusion’ to anybody who is suffering from depression, and/or has been told by their doctor or psychiatrist that they have a so called ‘chemical imbalance’. Maybe you are aware that this imbalance is incorrect but you need a reference book to show your doctor? if so, then this book is ideal.

I wish it was written back when my doctor told me that I had a chemical imbalance in 1998. He told me I would have it for life and needed SSRI’s to correct it. Lo and behold, he was wrong .I was conned. We all were. The chemical imbalance is a fraud which has caused immeasurable damage to our understanding of depression and how it should be approached.  There are many people that should never have been prescribed SSRI’s, most of these people, suffering distress, could have done better with talk therapy (or at the very least should have been warned of the side effects and withdrawal symptoms of the drugs). The SSRI age has caused a new societal problem, it has created damage to many people, and these people are now left with SSRI induced damage on top of their original condition. We are in the post-SSRI age, the post ‘chemical imbalance’ age, and we are now definitely in the age of the SSRI survivors. Terry’s book ‘Depression Delusion‘ gives validation to all SSRI survivors, and all sufferers of depression. It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in these topics.

GSK’s Infanrix Internal Documents Reveals Link To Autism And Other Disorders..
Vaccines cause autism, says confidential document from corrupt drug company
Thursday, April 23, 2015 by: Jennifer Lilley
Tags: autism, Infanrix vaccine, GlaxoSmithKline

(NaturalNews) While the debate rages on about whether or not vaccines cause autism, a confidential document has surfaced that makes clear what science has led Natural News readers to believe: Yes, vaccines are linked to autism.

The document,[PDF] which runs over 1,000 pages, is from the fraudulent and corrupt GlaxoSmithKline. Several hundred pages in, it’s revealed that vaccines are tied to autism. It’s blatantly outlined in a chart, along with a long list of other conditions caused by vaccines, including “motor development delay,” “tremor” and “altered state of consciousness.” Autism is listed in this chart as a nervous system and mental impairment disorder associated with receiving GSK’s Infanrix hexa vaccine.(1)

Signed by Dr. Felix Arellano, the Vice President and Head of Biological Safety and Pharmacovigilance of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, the document’s introduction states:

This summary bridging report integrates the information presented in the two Combined Diphtheria, Tetanus and Acellular Pertussis, Hepatitis B enhanced Inactivated Poliomyelitis and Haemophilus influenzae type B vaccine (Infanrix™ hexa) periodic safety update reports (PSURs) covering the two year period from 23 October 2009 to 22 October 2011.(1)

Vaccine is “favourable,” despite long list of health conditions
The document suggests that, although there are several adverse health effects associated with vaccine, the risk is not deemed to be problematic:

The Company will continue to monitor cases of anaemia haemolytic autoimmune, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, haemolytic anemia, cyanosis, injection site nodule, abcess and injection site abscess, Kawasaki’s disease, important neurological events (including encephalitis and encephalopathy), Henoch-Schonlein purpura, petechiae, purpura, haematochezia, allergic reactions (including anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions) cases of lack of effectiveness as well as fatal cases.(1)

Yet, despite the long list of health problems mentioned, the document maintains, “The benefit/risk profile of Infanrix hexa continues to be favourable.”(1)

In 2014, Infanrix was ruled by an Italian court to be responsible for a young Milan boy developing autism shortly after receiving the GlaxoSmithKline vaccine. As such, the decision was to award the boy for his vaccine-induced autism.(2)

The child received a series of Infanrix hexa injections in 2006, a vaccine designed to protect children from polio, tetanus, hepatitis B, diphtheria, pertussis and Haemophilus influenzae type B. Instead of being protected, his health declined: He developed autism. Medical experts in the Italian Court pointed to the confidential document, suggesting that the boy likely developed the condition due to the variety of antigens and thimerosal (a mercury-containing preservative now banned in Italy due to its neurotoxicity) and a host of other toxic ingredients that were in the vaccine at the time.(2)

Of Infanrix hexa’s thimerosal, the Court noted that it was “in concentrations greatly exceeding the maximum recommended levels for infants weighing only a few kilograms.”(2)

Despite irrefutable proof that vaccines cause autism, court appeals are in the works
Interestingly, in 2012, the Italian courts made a judgement in a similar situation in which they ruled that the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine caused a child’s autism. Just like the Infanrix hexa ruling, however, this finding has not set well with the Ministry of Health; they initially denied compensation to the family. Ultimately, the court granted compensation. Still, in the case of the young boy who was given the Infanrix hexa vaccine, the Ministry of Health has appealed, a process that’s expected to take several years to sort out.(2)

Such rulings should be applauded, although it’s disturbing 1) that appeals have ensued, and 2) that the United States has yet to come close to such court decisions.

This document — straight from the horse’s mouth, GlaxoSmithKline themselves — blatantly shows that vaccines are linked to autism and other conditions. What more is there to question, when the proof exists before our very eyes?

A Petition To Disband The MHRA (UK Medicines Regulator) Is Going Viral… (please sign)

Disband the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and its big pharma board of directors. The MHRA protects the billion dollar pharmaceutical monopolies by ruthlessly closing down any new effective, inexpensive scientific discoveries.

The MHRA has been proven to be a tool of “Big Pharma”, a puppet of the worlds largest pharmaceutical industries.  Charged with the task of protecting the public from harmful health care is in fact protecting the largest pharmaceutical companies from loss of profits instead.  There are many differing alternative ways that people can find to choose from for maintaining or returning to good health.  The MHRA actively prevents us accessing these, our own choice of medications in favour of harmful often unproven drugs from the profiteering big pharmaceutical companies.

The scandal of device regulation in the UK

Horton said: “The MHRA’s mission is ‘to enhance and safeguard the health of the public by ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe’. The MHRA is, by its own admission, unable to fulfil this mission.

MHRA, The Seroxat killer: Parmjit Dhanda, MP, Gloucester

is asking the Government why they allowed Dr Ian Hudson, the MHRA CEO,  to take part in the European Medicines Evaluation Agency (EMEA)’s review of Seroxat, an antidepressant. As well as working as worldwide safety director for GSK – the manufacturers of Seroxat (Paxil, Paroxetine)– from 1999 until 2001, Dr Hudson acted as witness for the defence in a trial in which Seroxat was accused of triggering a man’s violent and suicidal behaviour.

Paul Flynn MP, Newport:  What credibility does the MHRA have?

Recent events have proven that it is not a watchdog; it is a pussycat that purrs in front of the pharmaceutical industry and does what it is told. It has an incestuous relationship with the big pharmas and has a close association with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry. It has a disgraceful recent record. We can look with gratitude to the work not of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency in protecting the public, but to people such as Sarah Boseley of The Guardian for her exposé of the organisation, to the television programme “Panorama” and to Richard Brook of Mind, who courageously resigned from the MHRA in disgust at its activities.

It is a matter of enormous importance that, in recent history, the regulator is not protecting the 25,000 people who suffered heart attacks and the 7,000 who died from taking a painkilling drug for arthritics that was withdrawn by Merck Sharpe and Dohme in September, after being promoted by the regulator.

MHRA conceals Seroxat causes suicide

  1. “The MHRA had information in its possession for more than a decade that high doses of the anti-depressant Seroxat can lead to aggression and thoughts of suicide. But instead of revealing the truth to the 17,000 people taking high doses and the other half-million Britons on a safer dose, the MHRA sat on its findings. Astonishingly, I was actually threatened with legal action by Professor Kent Woods, chief executive of the MHRA, if I revealed this.”—RICHARD BROOK

The MHRA is GlaxoSmithKline, Aventis Pasteur, Merck, Sharpe and Dohme

A Sunday Express investigation found that nearly a third of the 181 experts who sit on the Medicines Control Agency (MCA, now the MHRA) committees are linked to Glaxo Smith Kline, Aventis Pasteur or Merck, Sharpe and Dohme……The MCA has continued to endorse the triple measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) jab despite concerns linking it to autism and stomach disorders. But the extent of the MCA members’ financial ties to MMR manufacturers raises questions about potential conflicts of interest.”–Sunday Express

Licensed drugs are the number 4 killer of mankind

The MHRA’s big brother, the USA’s FDA, admits drugs, ie those the FDA and MHRA license, kill scores of thousands. That’s what happens when the regulator is controlled by the drug companies. The MHRA conceal this.

The MHRA is criticised for failing to adequately regulate implants

with grim consequences for some patients. While the board contains retired senior executives from AstraZeneca and Merck Sharp & Dohme, it includes no one from a patient group, or any other body representing people whose health could be damaged by its decisions.

The web of unelected bodies functions as a kind of shadow government, drafting and enforcing policies, disbursing money, regulating – or failing to regulate – business, quietly, unobtrusively, without effective public scrutiny or restraint. When it is unbalanced, crawling with conflicts of interest, it makes a nonsense of democracy.

The MHRA protects the monopolies of the billion dollar pharmaceuticals (who charge, eg. £40,000 for a round of chemotherapy), and ruthlessly closes down inexpensive, effective treatments wherever it can.

Even the courts know the MHRA is corrupt

The MHRA has never successfully prosecuted a company since it was established nearly 10 years ago.   (It seems judges won’t accept evidence from so corrupt a source.)     -see last paragraph.

Fortitude Law & the Seroxat Group Action in the UK


Seroxat Secrets and Fortitude Law

Originally posted on seroxat secrets...:

It’s been going on far too long – and it’s not over yet.

I’m talking about the High Court action against GlaxoSmithKline that is being taken by a group of UK patients who are determined to finally have their day in court confronting GlaxoSmithKline.

It’s a long story and goes back 10 years or more. It’s also a complicated story and one which I am sure will be told in full one day.

You can find the full details of the Seroxat Group Action here at the Fortitude Law website:

Following the halt of the Seroxat Group Action in 2010 when public funding was withdrawn, Claimants determined to continue with their claims for compensation have turned to Fortitude Law. We are now set to return to Court and confront GlaxoSmithKline (UK) Ltd. with evidence of the harm they suffered as a consequence of having become dependent upon the antidepressant, Seroxat.

Sinister Seroxat Advertising..

Reading through Dr David Healy’s latest post about the forthcoming rewrite of Paxil (Seroxat) study 329, I couldn’t help but be absolutely sickened by the GSK Seroxat advert which I hadn’t seen before (see below). I had no idea that GSK actually addressed the BBC Panorama Documentaries about Seroxat in their advertising of the drug after the series. I am absolutely appalled at this advertisement. Furthermore, the image that they chose to use (when adding insult to injury to those who were unfortunate enough to have been prescribed Seroxat) is of what seems to be a very young man; so young, in fact, he could be a teenager. It’s strangely fitting, that I discover this horrible ad, shortly after publishing my posts about Greg Thorpe and the department of Justice legal complaint about GSK promoting Paxil to kids. Greg is the GSK whistle-blower who was so appalled at GSK pushing Paxil and Wellbutrin on kids that he decided to blow the whistle on the whole company. His actions resulted in a 3 billion fine for GSK, but even that didn’t cause a dent in their profits. It was merely a slap on the wrist.

See Here and Here.

With this ad, (which, according to David Healy, was for internal use only, presumably to convince GSK’s reps to continue prescribing Seroxat) it’s as if GSK are rubbing people’s noses in it, it’s as if they are saying a very big F*ck You to all those dead, harmed and damaged by Seroxat: are they trying to portray that they don’t give a damn at all about it being prescribed to young people? are they blatantly advertising that they encourage it? I have no idea how this shameful advert got past the advertising standards authority, and furthermore I’d really like to know what the MHRA think of GSK referencing them also in this sick ad. The whole thing has a very unsavory aura, and I really didn’t think that GSK could get anymore sociopathic, but this ad is really what I would call the definition of evil. Read it fully (particularly the second one) and let me know in the comments if you think that GSK are one very sick company…

Study 329: The Timelines

August, 31, 2015 | Reply

In addition to hosting the Panorama programs and The Famous Grouse history of Study 329, has a comprehensive timeline on the origins of concerns about the SSRIs and the risk of suicide – initially with Prozac and subsequently with Paxil – Seroxat.

The chronology is laid out year on year with key documents linked to many of these years. Click on the year, then click on any links – there is days worth of reading for anyone not familiar with the story.

The hope is to provide a comprehensive repository for anyone who wants to study SSRIs, RCTs and Study 329 in particular. If there are points you think we are missing and in particular if you have documents you think we are missing please comment below and if possible send documents. We will be able to add them to the list. The more people involved in telling the story the better.

Later this week, we will have a timelines on efforts to get Study 329 retracted and we will begin to present the data – the Clinical Study Reports and their Appendices.

Once the Restored Study has been published we will make our worksheets available containing the data along with the Reviews of the Article and our Responses.
