Dumbing Down Society Part I: Foods, Beverages and Meds
Jun 28th, 2010 | ByVigilant| Category:Vigilant Reports 
 Is there a deliberate effort by the government to dumb down the masses? The statement is hard to provebut there exists a great amount of data proving that the ruling elite not only tolerates, but effectivelyintroduces policies that have a detrimental effect on the physical and mental health of the population.This series of articles looks at the many ways the modern man is being dumbed down. Part I looks at the poisons found in everyday foods, beverages and medications.
 Image bydeesillustration.com The theme of dumbing-down and dehumanizing the masses are often discussed in articles on
TheVigilant Citizen
. The presence of those concepts in popular culture are, however, only the outward andsymbolic expression of the profound transformation happening in our society. Scientific data has been proving for years that governments around the world are tolerating the selling of many products whichhave a direct and negative effect on cognitive and physical health. As we will see in this article manyeveryday products cause brain damage, impaired judgment and even a lower IQ.Is a dumber population something that is desired by the elite? Hitler once said
“How fortunate for theleaders that men do not think.”
An educated population knows its rights, understands the issues andtakes action when it does not approve of what is going on. Judging by the incredible amount of dataavailable on the subject, it seems that the elite want the exact opposite: an unhealthy, frightened,confused and sedated population. We will look at the effects of medication, pesticides, fluoride andaspartame on the human body and how those products are being pushed by people from inside the power structure.
 
Prescription Drug Abuse
America has witnessed during the last decades a staggering rise of drugs being prescribed to treat allkinds of problems. Children are particularly affected by this phenomenon. Since the 1990′s, an ever-rising proportion of American children are being diagnosed with “illnesses” such as Attention DeficitDisorder (ADD) and are prescribed mind-altering drugs, such as Ritalin.
The DEA has become alarmed by the tremendous increase in the prescribing of these drugsin recent years. Since 1990, prescriptions for methylphenidate have increased by 500 percent, while prescriptions for amphetamine for the same purpose have increased 400 percent. Now we see a situation in which from seven to ten percent of the nation’s boys areon these drugs at some point as well as a rising percentage of girls.
- SourceToday, children who show too much energy, character or strength are being willfully sedated with powerful drugs which directly affect the way their brains function. Are we going in the right directionhere?Even if ADD is not a clearly defined and documented disorder – it causes NO observable biologicaleffects whatsoever – children are still being diagnosed with the illness in great numbers. This raisesimportant ethical questions.
“Pediatricians as well as ethicists have also voiced their concerns in usage of these stimulants. In an article published in the New York Times, they have questioned theappropriateness of medicating children without a clear diagnosis in hopes that they dobetter in school. They also asked whether the drugs should be given to adults failing intheir careers or are procrastinators. They question the worthy of this method.This concern have also been voiced out in the January 2005 issue of Pediatrics in whichthe large discrepancies between pediatricians’ practice patterns and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for the assessment and treatment of children withattention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was bought forth. The article also stated that because the medical community didn’t come to a consensus on how to diagnose ADD/  ADHD, they should not be making extensive decisions as to how to treat individuals whohave been diagnosed with the disorder.”
The usage of Ritalin at a young age breaks the psychological threshold people maintain towards the
 
usage of prescription pills, which makes those children more likely to consume psychotropic drugslater in their lives. We should not be surprised to witness a dramatic increase of consumption of antidepressants in the years to come. The trend is already beginning:
“In its study, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at 2.4 billiondrugs prescribed in visits to doctors and hospitals in 2005. Of those, 118 million were for antidepressants.The use of antidepressants and other psychotropic drugs — those that affect brainchemistry — has skyrocketed over the last decade. Adult use of antidepressants almost tripled between the periods 1988-1994 and 1999-2000. Between 1995 and 2002, the most recent year for which statistics are available, the use of these drugs rose 48 percent, theCDC reported.”
- Elizabeth Cohen, CNNThe use of prescription pills might be of a great help for specific and properly diagnosed cases. The pharmaceutical industry however, which has many “friends” in the highest levels of government, is pushing for the widespread use of psychiatric drugs within the public. Since 2002, a great number of  pills claiming to fix all kinds of mental conditions have been marketed to the public, but many of those pills were approved for sale without proper research for side effects. Even worse: the side effects mighthave been known but hidden to the public. Below is a list of warnings issued on commonly sold psychiatric drugs. Some of those side effects are actually frightening as a pill should not be able to havethat much power over the human brain. Think about it: Some drugs are subject to warnings becausethey can cause you to … commit suicide?2004
