I will re-post/copy it here for your convenience. They have been writing some great articles and keeping everyone informed about the injustice we all are under in these horrible times in our history for medicine, our own lives, and our children's lives, health, and protection.
There is also a link in this article to Evelyn Pringle's report,
"FDA Throws Lifeline to Antipsychotic Pushers" - Article here -->http://counterpunch.org/pringle06122009.html
which is a must read for anyone concerned about the abuses that Big Pharma and Psychiatry perpetrate upon our society today. We are in a WAR, and we are losing against the forces of pure greed, corruption, evil, and lies.
Yet, we must continue to battle on; because each of our children's lives and quality of life hang in the balance. Our very future as a nation and a people are at stake now. Please make your voice heard all the way to the steps of the White House and beyond.

Pharma & US Gov Promoting Chemical Assault on America's Children.
The Obama administration seems to be pushing the radical pharmacological envelope even further than the Bush administration-- --at the very least, nothing has changed for the better in the government-assisted determined push to control / engineer America's children.
This has been a grim week for anyone who cares about the precautionary principle guiding civilized medicine and the welfare of children.
Such approval gives manufacturers a shield from liability--for illegally promoting the drugs for off-label use. And such approval ensures increased use of these drugs. Manufacturers and mental health providers will profit while children's physical and mental health will be sacrificed. These drugs pose severely disabling, potentially lethal hazards--including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease.
An article in TIME magazine gives credence to a not yet released report commissioned under the Bush Administration by a panel convened by the National Academies of Science.
"Hundreds of studies that have appeared in just the past decade collectively suggest that the brain isn't so different from, say, the arm: it doesn't simply break on its own. In fact, many mental illnesses - even those like schizophrenia that have demonstrable genetic origins - can be stopped or at least contained before they start."
"This isn't wishful thinking but hard science."
If the consequences of psychiatry's delusions weren't so serious, that statement is laughable. As every real medical scientist knows, psychiatry lacks even the rudimentary objective, scientifically verifiable tools of science, much less, "hard science."
The TIME reporter is impressed with NAS report weight in pagination: "a 500-page report, nearly two years in the making, on how to prevent mental, emotional and behavioral disorders."
"The [NAS] report concludes that pre-empting such disorders requires two kinds of interventions:
"Some prevention programs even prescribe psychiatric medications, including antipsychotics and antidepressants, to people who aren't technically psychotic or depressed....But those who contributed to the National Academies report say preventing the suffering of people with mental illness is worth the risk of some false positives, partly because of the enormous cost of treating mental illness after it's struck."
The NAS report is available online in its unedited version--it has not yet been released.
