  Familial Depression -- Researchers Look at the Genetic Links between 
  Family Members And Depression
  Peoria Journal Star - October 02, 2002
  Speaking by telephone, through his new, artificial voice box, Dr. Ted 
  Reich isn't the easiest person to understand. He had surgery to remove 
  his larynx a few months ago.
  But two points come through perfectly clear.
  The first: "Severe depression is a crippling disease

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD: there
is no doubt they call every DSM psychiatric diagnosis a disease, which
is fraudulent. Remember disease = objective abnormality; no disease =
no abnormality = medically, physically normal = every DSM psychiatric

  , it's good for no one and for nothing."
  The second: "The problem with the drugs used to treat it is they're 
  only 60 percent effective." 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
all talk of the drugs is beside
the point of the fraudulent representation of emotional, behavioral,
psychological, psychiatric problems as being diseases.]

  Dr. Reich, a professor of psychiatry and genetics 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
as if there
were a genetics of psychiatric conditions; abnormal phenotypes with
the psychiatric diagnosis an abnormal phenotype/physical/brain
abnormality. There is no such thing]

  at Washington University 
  in St. Louis, is among the early researchers to seriously look into 
  the biochemistry of mental illness

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
as if there were a
biochemistry of mental, psychiatric conditions, none, not one has been
proved to be due to, characterized by a chemical abnormality of the

  , work that helped refine the development of 
  anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medications, and, more 
  importantly, raised new questions about why psychiatric illnesses 
  seemed to run in some families and not in others. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
the way
psychiatrist, paid, like this one, by Big Pharma to invent diseases
and whole epidemics, it is a wonder there are not more whole families,
each and every one with one, two, five, or seven mental illness. The
first true abnormality in any of them is that due to the psychotropic
drug/toxin/poison invariably prescribed.]

  His passion 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
how passionate is he paid to be in his hunt for
psychiatric diseases]

  for finding better drugs to treat 
  depression, and possibly prevent it, filters through the telephone 
  line, despite the static in his voice.
  When he got interested in the links between genetics and mental 
  disorders more than 30 years ago

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
let him cite, reference, a
single proof that so much as a single psychiatric condition has a
confirming organic/physical abnormality (including due to an abnormal
gene or chromosome) to confirm it as such]

  , psychiatry was 
  still following Freud's footsteps, blaming mental illness on 
  overbearing mothers and a dysfunctional family life.
  "Of course, there's been a revolution in thinking since then," he 
  says. "Culture is still important, environment is still important, but 
  biology is just as important 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
cite a proof a single proof]

  It's not an either-or question, we're trying to figure it all out."
  With assistance from the blueprint laid out in the Human Genome 
  Project, Dr. Reich could help re-revolutionize the revolution.
  He is the leader, and Washington University is the only U.S. site, of 
  a large-scale depression research study of families where at least two 
  siblings have suffered from severe depression. By conducting detailed 
  histories, interviews and DNA analysis of members of about 500 
  families in the United States and Europe, Dr. Reich and his team of 
  geneticists hope to find the specific genes that increase - or 
  decrease - the likelihood of depression

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD: this is an
elaborate, incredibly expensive illusion building, inventing diseases,
chemical imbalances, to render rational and legitimate the reflex
prescriptions of "chemical balancers," manufactured by his pay master,
in this case GSK, the biggest of all. Get his financial statement and
his passion will come into focus.]


  Exactly how is clinical depression, or a susceptibility to it,
  inherited, like brown eyes, red hair, or big feet? It's a million- 
  dollar question in psychiatry, with the possibility of billion- dollar 
  "We know there's a link, but we haven't done the mapping studies yet 
  to find out which genes are involved," Dr. Reich says 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
years at it and not a single abnormal gene, chromosome, not a single
bona fide disease; and yet the public, all patients at one time or
another are thoroughly 'snowed.' ]

  Funded by British pharmaceutical giant, GlaxoSmithKline, the results 
  would be used by the company's research and development to develop new 
  Scientists, and pharmaceutical companies with an eye on profits, have 
  studied, researched and debated the connection between biology and 
  mental illness for more than 20 years. But none of the work has led to 
  comprehensive, conclusive answers.
  The problem is depression is a very complicated disease "and human 
  behavior is just so darn complex" says Dr. Peter Alahi, co- director 
  of the Anxiety and Mood Disorder Clinic at the University of Illinois 
  College of Medicine at Peoria. "No two depressions are the same." 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
Oh! How exactly do you separate 1,2, 5 kinds of depression Dr.
Alahi? Five separate diseases? Not just one? How about zero, Dr.
Alahi? ]

  Finding a pure sample, that is, families where siblings have been 
  diagnosed with the same form of depression, has been one of the 
  challenges of study. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
among their favorite duplicitous moves
is to speak of subtypes of mental diseases, knowing full-well they
have not validated so much as a single one.]

  The study focuses strictly on families with a history of major 
  clinical depression

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
disease #1, no doubt]

  , sometimes 
  referred to as unipolar depression 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:

  . But the 
  larger the family, the larger the likelihood of family members with 
  other types of depression, such as schizophrenia or manic-depressive 
  disorder. Additionally, many people with clinical depression have 
  never been diagnosed or treated.
  About 500 families, including about 95 in the United States are 
  currently enrolled in the study. Unlike clinical research trials, 
  participants are not asked to take medications. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
spending all
this money, going to all this trouble, being legitimate (or so it
seems) doctors in legitimate (or so it seems) schools of medicine, how
could we/the public, possibly think it is a total, 100% deception, a

  The biggest risk of participating in a study like this is the fear of 
  telling or learning family secrets, Dr. Reich says. But the project is 
  set up to maintain strict confidentiality and anonymity. Records are 
  kept under lock and key, all data is handled anonymously. Even family 
  members aren't told what another family member said.
  The project also has a certificate of confidentiality, issued by the 
  federal government, which prevents information from being subpoenaed. 
  "We'd destroy the data before we'd give it out," Dr. Reich says.
