The Congressonal Testimony of Dr. Peter Breggin

is worth listening to

Now some will call Dr. Peter Breggin a quack. Big Pharma tried to slime him as a Scientologist- that's the slime du jour against those that want to examine these SSRI drugs. Does Dr. Peter Breggin look like a quack? Notice these woo woo'ers never accuse the Big Pharma "doctors" who ghost write sales articles and jigger the numbers on the "tests" that big pharma does to ram approval through the FDA of being quacks. And to call these crooks and liars quacks would be generous, they're criminals and belong in jail- there's no problem locking up people that grow plants is there?


Education and early career

Breggin graduated from Harvard College with honors,[4] and attended Case Western Reserve Medical School. His postgraduate training in psychiatry began with an internship year of mixed medicine and psychiatry at the State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse. Breggin completed a first year of psychiatric residency at Harvard's Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston, where he was a teaching fellow at Harvard Medical School, and finished his final two years of psychiatric residency at SUNY. This was followed by a two-year staff appointment to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), where he worked to build and staff mental health centers and education. Breggin has taught at several universities, obtaining faculty appointments to the Washington School of Psychiatry, the Johns Hopkins University Department of Counseling, and the George Mason University Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. Breggin has worked in a private practice since 1968.

Breggin is a life member of the American Psychiatric Association and an editor for several scientific journals. His opinions have been portrayed both favorably and unfavorably in the media, including Time Magazine[5] and the New York Times.[6][7] He has appeared as a guest on many radio and television shows, including 60 Minutes, 20/20, Nightline, and numerous network news reports.[citation needed]
