Article Tom Cruise is dangerous and irresponsible

Quote "Let us move on to postpartum depression and chemical imbalances. Cruise pulls no punches when asked about his thoughts on the existence of chemical imbalances: he claims there is no scientific evidence to verify they exist, based on his reading of the scientific literature. When asked about drugs like Paxil for the treatment of postpartum depression, he spoke plainly: “Let me tell you something: it is not a cure and it is actually lethal. These drugs are dangerous . . . There is a hormonal thing that is going on that is . . . scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that” Again, I beg to differ and so does 50 years’ worth of literatureWhile indeed other theories have been proffered to explain depression, the idea that chemical or genetic imbalances may underlie depression has been widely accepted. I wonder how an actor with Cruise’s educational background (no course of study noted past a high school degree) came to understand the medical literature and whether he would be conversant in the intricacies of the monoamine hypothesis or serotonin and noradrenaline signaling."

Article (Video) Dr Chris talks about depression

Quote Let me just simply explain depression. Basically, your brain is drained of the chemicals that keep you in, a sort of, level mood, and one of those chemicals is called serotonin and when you drain your brain of serotonin then depression can creep up upon you. And the antidepressants that we use now push the levels of serotonin in your brain and put you back to normal. It's not unlike hormone replacement therapy, your body is running short of hormones so you take hormone replacement therapy to push those levels. ”

Quote “When sadness and fatigue or extreme irritability last longer than two weeks, become intense (enough even to prompt suicidal thoughts) and/or prevent you from going to work, school or social events, you may be experiencing biochemically based depression. Suicidal thoughts result from biochemical imbalances that can be rectified.Some Insights for Men Decades of strict research have confirmed that depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain. Often, this imbalance can be treated and rectified. It has nothing to do with character weakness or inability to cope. The brain’s chemicals become imbalanced for a number of reasons.
