A study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry in 2020 showed that there is an inverse association between lithium consumption from public drinking water and suicide rates at the population level. Researchers have found that naturally occurring lithium in drinking water may have the potential to reduce the risk of suicide and may help in mood stabilization, especially in populations with relatively high suicide rates.1
Americans Suffering Mental Health Problems Associated With Pandemic
According to a poll conducted by Kaiser Family Foundation between Mar. 25 and Mar. 30, 2020, 45 percent of adults said that the pandemic has affected their mental health and 19 percent said it has had a “major impact” on their mental health.2
In the United States, 48,344 Americans died by suicide in 2018. In 2019, deaths by suicide decreased by 2.1 percent to 47,511.3 With respect to suicide rates for 2020, Christine Moutier, MD, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said:
We do not yet know about suicide during the COVID-19 pandemic because the United States does not collect suicide data in real time, therefore, claims about increasing suicide rates during COVID-19 are not based in current available data and are unfounded,” She added that, “We do know that thoughts of suicide are more prevalent among the general population now than before COVID-19, and for that reason we must continue to focus on prevention efforts and supporting those at risk.4
Lithium has been widely used in pharmacology, particularly in psychiatric medication for the treatment and prevention of manic/depressive episodes, stabilizing mood and reducing the risk of suicide.5
The study, which is a meta-analysis of research conducted in Austria, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Japan and United States, encompasses a total of 1,286 regions, counties and cities, suggests a relationship between higher levels of lithium in public drinking water and lower rates of suicide among these populations.6 7
The authors of the study say that the next step is to investigate the effects of adding lithium in trace amounts to the water supplies in communities with a high risk of suicide and high prevalence of mental health problems, substance abuse, and violent criminal behavior.8
Dr. Anjum Memon, the lead researcher in the study stated:
In these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent increase in the incidence of mental health conditions, accessing ways to improve community mental health and reduce the incidence of anxiety, depression, and suicide is ever more important.9 …
What’s even more important is that doctors find ways to rationalize the abuse of children and adults (but especially children) in order to justify medicalized oppression which is nearly always worse than the “disease.” Munchausen by proxy consent, but in this case, consent of adults will not even be sought. After all, they’re already fluoridating the water “for our own good”. What’s next?
Apparently suicide is too quick and doesn’t facilitate disaster capitalism harvesting the way slow suffering can.
This is the kind of predatory logic which our social engineers engage in. Doctors just put a smiley face on it.
