THE MORNING SHOW
Peter R. Breggin, MD
Psychiatric Drug Facts, Gun Violence and Mass Murder
With the theatre shooting in Aurora, CO, the massacre in Sandy Hook and a host of other past shooting sprees, it’s hard to turn a blind eye to the connection between the shooters and the medications they were taking or had been taking. In this hour, Dr. Peter Breggin will share some shocking information about the use of psychiatric drugs and the dangers in stopping their use once started. He is not called “The Conscience of Psychiatry” for nothing. He explains the power of the drug companies and their billion dollar grip on the media,the courts and the raising of Americas children. Dr. Breggin makes sense. We need more like him, foregoing the prescription pad and practicing true healing.
