New Danish research shows that "schizophrenics" do better off drugs

Oh really?! You don't say! Yup. And Merete Nordentoft who led the research, is dumbfounded with this result: "Most of the participants who achieved full recovery, didn't take medication after five years. Some of them actually managed entirely without medication. I didn't expect this."

Well well, what did you expect, Merete?? Merete Nordentoft is the Danish "expert" when it comes to "schizophrenia". How is it that the Danish "expert" on "schizophrenia" seems to never have heard of any long-term outcome studies like Harding, et al., 1987, or Harrow, Jobe, 2007, of the WHO-studies, of Soteria, Open Dialog, and and and?! Maybe she doesn't speak English? I mean, we all know that shrinks usually are not the sharpest tools in the shed among medical professionals... Which leads me to another interesting result of the study. But since it's really late: more on it, link and so on, tomorrow.

Can you post the source article where she makes this statement?

Rossa: You're not the first to ask for more info :)

The original article is here, in Danish. I've tried to find the study on the net, but it's probably not yet published at all. At least, I wasn't able to find anything.

I'll do a follow-up post on the article later today. It's absolutely mind-boggling how blind these people are. The truth stares them right into the face, but do they see it??...

In this case I would say your sarcasm is justified. Where the heck has she been?
