- A new study suggests adding lithium to drinking water lowers suicides.
- Scientists may test this experiment on the broader population.
- This is wrong and should be vetoed and outlawed.
UK Psychiatrists completed a study titled “Association between naturally occurring lithium in drinking water and suicide rates: systematic review and meta-analysis of ecological studies.” The scientists claim that the high concentration of this metal in the water leads to reducing the risk of suicides.
The British Journal of Psychiatry is a peer-reviewed medical journal covering all branches of psychiatry with a particular emphasis on the clinical aspects of each topic. The journal is owned by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and published monthly by Cambridge University Press on behalf of the College.
A team of psychiatrists from the University of Sussex and King’s College London conducted a meta-study to confirm a suspected link between the naturally occurring lithium content in the drinking water and the suicide rates. the scientists claim that the high concentration of this metal in the water leads to reducing the risk of the suicides.
Seventy years ago, Australian psychiatrist John Cade discovered a drug for the treatment of bipolar disorder, which helped many patients quickly stabilize their condition. Currently, lithium is the standard therapy for the disorder, and one of the most effective drugs in psychiatry. According to WebMD, lithium is used for mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia.
However, lithium is only prescribed by doctors, and the individual taking such medication should be under constant doctor’s supervision. Additionally, lithium has severe side effects, including Parkinson’s-like symptoms, as well as kidney and thyroid damage.
It should be noted that 75% of people prescribed lithium experience negative side effects. However, in the case of bipolar disorder, the side effects are outweighed by the positive effects. In the people who do not have bipolar disorder and children, such can actually cause more damage than positive.
However, the authors of the study now were granted the allowance to test their theory. They plan to add lithium to the drinking water in the UK areas with the highest reported numbers of violent crimes, drug dependence, and alcohol. Hence, they will be putting drugs in the drinking water, where children and adults will be drugged without their knowledge.
The experiment will be on the poor communities, since the highest numbers are usually reported in these communities. In the upper class communities, drug abuse is usually privately treated, and does not get entered in the public statistics. It will affect the most vulnerable and minorities in the UK.
Overall, if the testing is successful, it will become a permanent practice in the UK. This is beyond dangerous and scary. The people without such disorders and children could end up having permanent side effects and be medicated without having psychiatric symptoms. These are the same cruel experiments the UK did on the former British colonies and the native population.
This should be vetoed, and it should be illegal to mass drug people in poor neighborhoods. This information should be shared. All lives matter and no one should be drugged without consent or awareness.
The question remains, is the UK doing it to subdue citizens in the poor neighborhoods?
