FDA Clinical Summary Review of Pediatric Metabolic Adverse Events 5 Atypical Antipsychotics:Seroquel -48 adverse events, 5 deaths, 36 kids developed/experienced diabetes
We are destroying our children in the name of corporate profits & greed...We are burying children in the name of egocentric false medicine concerned more with reputations, money, or status; than with the lives they have sworn an oath to care for.
DO NO HARM
Remember these are just a few of the reported adverse events in 2008-2009. There is little doubt thousands upon thousands of children are suffering the horrible and debilitating side effects of seroquel and like drugs today as these words are being typed.
There are not names next to these statistics listed below; but these are very real children...they could be your neighbors children, a relatives child, a friends child, they could be poor or foster children; and they all have something in common, they have names...they are America's children.
Read what these very young kids & toddlers are being given...it's disturbing and beyond all rational comprehension....
