For decades doctors have pumped antidepressant drugs onto people claiming that their depression was caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. But new research has proven that claim is wrong.

After all these years of doctors and science pushing loads of drugs on depressed people, now we find it was all BS.

The latest research has been unable find any link at all between low serotonin or a chemical imbalance in the brain. Antidepressants were supposed to cure that imbalance by correcting a patient’s low serotonin levels.

But according to a new study, it was all fake science. According to the Metro:

Lead author Joanna Moncrieff, a professor of psychiatry at UCL is a consultant psychiatrist at North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT).

She said: ‘It is always difficult to prove a negative, but I think we can safely say that after a vast amount of research conducted over several decades, there is no convincing evidence that depression is caused by serotonin abnormalities, particularly by lower levels or reduced activity of serotonin.

‘The popularity of the “chemical imbalance” theory of depression has coincided with a huge increase in the use of antidepressants.

‘Prescriptions for antidepressants have risen dramatically since the 1990s, with one in six adults in England and 2% of teenagers now being prescribed an antidepressant in a given year.’

‘Many people take antidepressants because they have been led to believe their depression has a biochemical cause, but this new research suggests this belief is not grounded in evidence.’

So, when people tell you idiotic things like “the science is settled,” you know they are either lying, too stupid to find out the truth, or simply too lazy to do so.
