The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence.

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

Quote Depression can be linked to a chemical imbalance in the brain. This usually involves a drop in the level of chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters take messages from your brain to your nerve cells. The common ones involved in depression are serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine.
Such a chemical imbalance can be triggered by a physical or emotional (psychological) event in your life. Sometimes it is hard to know if it was one or the other. Often both types may play a part.
