Every one of us can receive lifesaving health-enhancing information from Pam Popper, PhD, founder of The Wellness Forum who explains how we can eat ourselves out of bad health and into good health with the kinds of foods that humans have genetically evolved to eat. She offers a rational, science-based approach that all of us can benefit from.

Andrew Thibault of Parents against Pharmaceutical Abuse provides stunning data on psychiatric drug-induced fatalities and homicides based on his highly sophisticated analyses of millions of reports to the FDA. Learn how 280 stimulant drug death reports for children may reflect 28,000 actual fatalities over ten years. Learn how 700 reported cases of homicide for all psychiatric drugs in all ages may reflect multiples more actual murders over the decade. I took notes like a student listening to Andrew.

With a passionate condemnation of psychiatric “euthanasia”–that’s how I begin. Then my guest Bob Nikkel talks about pioneering programs in mental health and their funding by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health, including a US family-oriented therapeutic intervention with an 80% success rate in returning people with acute psychosis to community, school, work, and ultimately to a better and happier life. Psychosocial therapies work; drug therapies make people worse. This is what science is confirming.

Robert Whitaker, one of the great critics of modern psychiatry, examines how the partnership between the pharmaceutical industry and psychiatry has corrupted psychiatry, done extraordinary injury to our society, and created a cultural outlook devoid of intellectual and spiritual depth. Bob unravels the historical details of how this tragedy came about and concludes with a profound critique of its consequences. It’s a fascinating master class masquerading as talk radio.

The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 04.06.16

MY MOST IMPORTANT SHOW EVER! I spend the hour by myself talking to you about psychiatric drugs and rational psychopharmacology. Learn basic principles like the brain-disabling effect of psychiatric drugs, medication spellbinding, and chronic brain impairment. For every category of psychiatry drugs, learn how their good effects are falsified and the bad ones covered up. Finally get an overall understanding about how this multi-billion dollar industry stands on feet of quicksand, and we’re the ones sinking into it. This is the basic introduction to my decades of clinical and scientific work, with directions for where to find the background scientific information. Please listen to this and pass it on to others. It is literally lifesaving information.
