One of our Resistance Library readers reached out to us recently and shared a BBC article that they found interesting. They said it reminded them of our piece Prescription For Violence: The Corresponding Rise of Antidepressants, SSRIs & Mass Shootings and thought it supported some of the connections made there.
We thought you all might find it interesting, you can find the BBC article they sent us here: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200108-the-medications-that-change-who-we-areThey've been linked to road rage, pathological gambling, and complicated acts of fraud. It turns out many ordinary medications don't just affect our bodies - they affect our brains.
The story is pretty wild. We wonder how many "Patient Five's" there really are out there. Do you or someone you know have similar stories like this one?
