Last weekend we watched an NFL playoff game via an online feed from Canada’s CTV and noticed something quite striking. Aside from an occasional cough medicine ad, there were ZERO drug commercials like the ones we’re bombarded with here in the United States.

Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging (2008)
Psychotropic drugs. It’s the story of big money-drugs that fuel a $330 billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure.
The cost in human terms is even greater-these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people every year.
And the death count keeps rising. Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine.
Before these drugs were introduced in the market, people who had these conditions would not have been given any drugs at all.
So it is the branding of a disease and it is the branding of a drug for a treatment of a disease that did not exist before the industry made the disease.

Maybe it’s easier now to see that correlation.
