Researchers followed 136,000 postmenopausal women taking part in the Women’s Health Initiative and found that those who started taking antidepressants1 during the study had a 67% increased risk of death from any cause during the 6 year follow-up period of the study.  They also had double the risk for a hemorrhagic stroke or a fatal stroke.

Antidepressants are widely over-prescribed.  Their massive overuse is based on major Big Pharma propaganda that is essentially fraud.  The scientific merit regarding how they work has recently been called into question.  Now we come to find that they can be outright killers, as they are associated with a statistically significant increased risk of death from any cause.
