The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs

The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs ~ Dr. Chris Van Tulleken

Many people outside of the UK will not have seen the following show broadcast on the BBC on the 30th May 2018.

I've often wondered why a show broadcast in one country is unavailable in other countries, particularly when the content is of vital importance, wherever you happen to live.

After watching the half-hour episode of 'The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs', please read the link at the foot of the video. The two are connected.

Pay attention to the quote, in the show, from Andrea Cipriani, who claims that antidepressants work by "increasing the level of neurotransmitters, called serotonin, in the brain."

So, they help rectify a 'chemical imbalance' then?

Honestly, I thought we were past this nonsense. Even the Royal College of Psychiatrists don't support this view anymore.

For those who don't know, Andrea Cipriani is the lead author of a paper which earlier this year was heralded as the 'final say' on the efficacy of antidepressants. Hard to believe that Cipriani believes antidepressants rectify a chemical imbalance, then again, it's hard to believe anyone does these days.

Here's the video. Please, after watching, click on the link below the video.

Now read this.
