Zombies Apocalypse: 70% of Americans on Prescription Drugs

Leave a comment

Zombies are very real, and they are already upon us.

In a new study out of the Mayo Clinic, researchers discovered that almost 70% of the American public is currently taking at least one prescription medication. Researchers reported that antibiotics, painkillers and antidepressants were the most commonly prescribed prescriptions in America. Even more disturbing is the huge number of people who have become dependent on mood altering medications.

medicated zombiesWe literally have a country filled with drug induced zombies

The numbers are actually pretty disturbing; according to another report, 1 out of every  5 U.S. adults is taking at least one behavioral pharmaceutical drug and more than one in four women is taking at least one mood altering medication. But the craziness doesn’t stop there.

Are kids are being drugged into stupidity

According to new data from the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States, and 11 percent of school-age children over all, have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

An estimated 6.4 million children, ages 4 through 17, had received an A.D.H.D. diagnosis at some point in their lives, a 16 percent increase since 2007, and a 41 percent rise in the past decade. Of those children who have been diagnosed with A.D.H.D, two-thirds receive prescriptions for stimulants like Ritalin or Adderall which can lead to addiction, anxiety and occasionally psychosis.

The Sad Stats on Mood Alerting Meds:

  • 42 percent of all kids in foster care are taking three or more mood-altering drugs.
  • Nearly 30 percent of all children from 10 to 19, take at least one prescription to treat a so-called chronic condition.
  • Twenty-six percent (26%) of all nursing home residents are given antipsychotic medications
  • Nearly one in four women ages 50-64 were found to be on at least one antidepressant.

These Pharmaceutical Companies are basically legalized drug dealers.

There’s absolutely no way that 70% of America needs to be medicated; the fact is we have an industry that’s become more dangerous than the crack dealers who we lock up for selling drugs on the street corners.

The Zombie Apocalypse

Illegal Drug Use and Drug Addiction:

In 2011, an estimated 22.5 million Americans aged 12 or older—or 8.7 percent of the population—had used an illicit drug or abused a psychotherapeutic medication (such as a pain reliever, stimulant, or tranquilizer) in the past month. This is up from 8.3 percent in 2002.

BATH SALTS AND DESIGNER DRUGS: Another cause for concern?

ZombieAgitation, dangerously high body temperature, extreme paranoia, vivid hallucinations, psychotic episodes, suicidal thoughts, violent behavior and last year’s zombielike attacks are all being blamed on a new crop of designer drugs. These drugs, commonly referred to as Bath Salts, are nothing like the drugs of the past.

Bath salts, the street name for a new class of designer drugs, have been blamed in a number of the recent sensational zombie attack stories. This new type of designer drug contains a mixture of chemicals that are often concocted in underground labs across America. Surprisingly, these drugs are completely legal, and are being sold in mini-marts and smoke shops throughout America.

We will see Chaos in the streets….

RiotsEver wonder why there’s so much violence? While politicians would like you to believe it’s all those evil guns, the fact is, these are the same politicians who have allowed the Pharmaceutical Companies to dope up 70% of our country.

We have a whole segment of society who is taking psychotropic drugs that in many cases create more problems than they cure.

These mood alerting medications have been linked to everything from in suicide in teens to sudden death in women and in some cases even murder. In fact, there is growing evidence that most of the mass shootings that have taken place over the last 20 years can be directly tied to someone who was taking one of these mood altering medications

What happens to these people if they become cut off?

In my opinion, one of the largest threats to your safety during a time of crisis will be people who can no longer find these medications that they have become dependent on. Their minds have literally become rewired by these medications; in a crisis situation, where these drugs become unavailable, you will see masses of people who could be instantly thrown in some sort of psychosis.

Although these drugs are extremely dangerous, it can be even more dangerous for someone who has become dependent on them to abruptly stop taking them.

Those zombie shows you see on T.V. might start looking rather tame compared to what could happen in that situation. Just take a couple of minutes today to notice the people who roam are streets; now imagine those same people let loose during a disaster or crisis situation. It’s not going to be very pretty!

If and when the system collapses, you’re going to have to fend for yourself. You might want to be Prepared!

    ADHD should be called cut back on the sugar.
    I think it would help.

    • Elliot says:

      I understand that certain ADHD drugs were over-prescribed for a time but please do not assume that everyone who is on those drugs doesn’t need them. I also agree that our culture seems to prefer prescribing anti-depressants rather than making people’s lives meaningful and enriched with a feeling of belonging.

      My brother takes Adderall and I was talking about it with him the last time our family got together for Flag Day. He doesn’t understand why anyone who didn’t need them would want to take it because he has to live with some crazy side effects, just so that he can have 5 hours of a “normal” concentration level each day. He is a very intelligent person but he wouldn’t make it through college if he hadn’t been diagnosed and medication was available simply because he literally could not hold an image in his mind for longer than a few seconds.

      That’s how he describes the moment he knew that he had a deficiency that other people didn’t have. He was in a typing course in high school and was trying to look at a page of text and then copy it to a word document and simply could not look at the text and then copy it, unlike everyone else in his class was able to. At that moment, he understood that something was wrong.

      The medication gives him vertigo and affects his appetite. He has to be careful to not stand up too fast or he can pass out. Like I said, when I talked to him, he couldn’t comprehend why anyone would want to go through the side effects of taking medication/drugs if they didn’t absolutely have to.

      So please keep in mind that you are LUCKY and BLESSED if you are 100% normal and don’t need a prescription to get through normal activities. Not everyone has had such good fortune though, and please don’t judge a whole group of people for something you have not experienced.

      • Tom says:

        Unfortunately, Elliot, you don’t understand anything.

    • New Generation In A New World says:

      ADHD should be called:
      1) eliminate the sugar;
      2) don’t expect boys to sit at their desks all day & be passive, obedient drones.

  2. Lisa says:

    Well now it sure makes sense why I’m looked at like some kind of alien when I refuse to take medication for every little ache and pain.

  3. Prepman says:

    I’ve been telling people this for years. Just 5 minutes in a modern day mall or school will have you convinced that zombies are real.

  4. The Man With The Power says:

    I think many of these drug zombies will look and behave like zombies in 28 Days Later, the British horror film. They are like ordinary people, but are screwed up in the head and will attack you for no reason. It would probably look kinda like that.

    • Walker says:

      I agree and I think we are already starting to see it. Our society is a mess and every time you turn on the news you see more random attacks.

  5. Prepped and ready says:

    Ok, should 70% of americans be medicated? No. There are many reasons why our society is so medicated; popularity, laziness, refusing to learn how to deal with life and emotions, population control, government conspiracy, pesticides, hormones, I could go on and on. It’s no coincidence that the american people are fat and “depressed”, but as some one who DOES take a mood stabilizer I can speak for those who really need them. I wont go into detail as to why, it’s no ones business…but Im no zombie. I see your point…I do, but you have to admit there is a certain amount of the population that needs to some sort of therapy. Now on a side note, I have no intention of ever going cold turkey; its dangerous. I have several weeks of different dosages so that in a disaster scenario I can ween myself off with no ill side affects. I as a medical professional I know how to do this properly and have trained many friends of mine how to do the same safely. Granted there are few that have prepared themselves to be able to do so, and yes that is a scary thought. But lets not put EVERYONE who takes medication in a box. And spare me the catty comments.

    • Off Grid Survival says:

      Thanks for the comments Prepped, and I do think there’s a segment of the population that needs certain medications… I Didn’t mean to imply that everyone on them was not in need; the main point of the article was the vast majority of people who do not need these meds.

      Sadly unlike you, most people aren’t prepared to ween themselves off these meds in an emergency – those are the ones I worry about.

      • Prepped and ready says:

        I understand. I worry about it too. I’m not offended, I’d be a little too sensitive if I were. There is a stereotype that comes with the territory, so Im used to the opinions of others and everyone is entitled to them. I just like to share mine too. :)

      • valerie says:

        There is also the ones out there who take said meds illegally and have addiction from them. I think more so than the ones under a doctors care, they will be far worse! If anything happens, their supply will go first.

      • Julia says:

        it’s not always possible to wean off. sometimes there’s real damage done to the brain. i saw it with my husband. weaned off very slowly over MONTHS and he still went psychotic (not straight away). it’s not just drugs – it’s the mindset, the idea that life should be easy, that hard is bad, that pain is to be avoided at all costs. if you can get past that, maybe you can get off drugs. maybe

  6. Mike414 says:

    So is the other 30% for all the other drugs that enter the water supply

    • Off Grid Survival says:

      Great point… We touched on that a little in last months water article (http://offgridsurvival.com/infrastructurethreats-drinkingwater/) it’s definitely a big problem.

      • Mike414 says:

        I know I love this site. You guys are spot on 99% of the time. I especially like the ham radio stuff. My personal opinion go further with the hunting and wild game skinning and preparation of meats. Bring it full circle intestines for now strings and bones and teeth for hooks arrow heads and other small tools

  7. Trey Corley says:

    Just wanted to say I love y’all’s site. It’s very helpful & super informative, even for someone who’s lived off the land & is an avid outdoorsman. Keep up the great work & God Bless.

  8. Michael Bethel says:

    I’ve been asking the same question for some time now… what happens when the public can’t get these prescriptions? It’s not like other addicts who just start Jonesing and will go for anything to get them high. These folk will go in for an emotional mental collapse… I know because I’ve watched my wife go through it a couple of times over the years as she shifted doses or types. (and she still doesn’t want to hear my stance on those damn things.)

    • Jamie says:

      I believe in some cases medication may be necessary for some people. However, there are far too many people who believe they are fit into that category. The marketing and advertisement of pharmaceuticals to the American public is a big part of this epidemic. It has gotten completely out of control. There is so much psychology used via the television to maximize the sales of these drugs, if one were to do some research on marketing/advertising, you might get a bit ticked off about how much they know how to influence behaviors. I personally know far too many people who have fallen pray to the pharma cartel, it’s pathetic. It seems impossible to have just a general conversation with anyone on these pharma drugs, (I know right away when someone is medicated)much-less have any relationship with them. No empathy, no accountability for their lives or health, it’s just weird. I’m in no way condemning anyone who does use pharma, I just feel it’s outta control. Heaven forbid should something catastrophic should happen ( and it could) I couldn’t imagine what the fall out would look like. Well it won’t be just the strong who survive, but more over, the wise.

  9. Kreece says:

    Always concerned about meds…my wife is going through serious back issues and is on a list of pain and anti-inflammatories. She is trying to take them only as needed and hates the helpless, drugged feeling when she DOES take them. I fear the day when the SHTF and I’ll have to carry 3 people.

  10. Andrew Jones says:

    You need to learn when to use our and not are.

  11. Sherman says:

    If people are taking meds for fun I say let them have all they want.It will just mean that many less I have to worry about a few weeks after T.S.H.T.F.

  12. goblin says:

    speaking as a zombie , as I have no doubts that’s what I will transpire into as I was injured in defense of our country and I exist under a pain mask,(painkiller pump and a dorsal stimulator)as well as more metal inside me (plates pins schrapnel )than most newer cars, for the past few centuries(years, just seems longer)the dorsal unit is rechargeable, I do have a solar setup to do that, I do have a small stock pile of meds to extend my mobility, but the lifespan of the pump with a full tank at my dose is just shy of 1 year as I have made the necessary preps for my concerns( bugout bags, munitions ,med / sustainence supplies , dedicated transport,) to our prearranged site. just incase I had my fill changed to a more commonly available killer,(that dt was pure hades) and I did obtain a spare fill kit , so possibly with salvage I might come up with a dose or two, but I am not counting on that as I don’t leave much to luck.in any case after things go sideways, I know those I care for will be with those I can truly trust. and if the time comes I know they will do whats necessary for me, as I would do the same for them

  13. Rian Mutters says:

    I’m on meds and the world sometimes looks like a godforsaken wastebin. You can thank alcohol for todays genepool, and if you need to quit smoking, anesthesia will let u but u gotta commit. Arent we forgetting that? (dont wont cant drink or smoke – it already F’d me.) I doubt these stats are accurate. The reason Im alive is that there seems no real easy way out, and a lot of other people probably feel the same way. And a lot of diseases could be blamed enough for whats going in the air and water. We have osmosis and cistern I take full advantage by drinking 4liters a day, sometimes with lemon juice. Was told by a chiropractor that smoking reduces healing of the spine by 50%. Sorry had to sum up this.
