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.

Nursing professor Jay Tan


Growing up, Tan was drawn to medicine and the sciences, fascinated by all things related to anatomy, physiology, theories, and genes. He focused on nursing, attending Cebu State Medical Center College of Nursing (now known as Cebu Normal University), and graduated first in his class in 1990.

Four years of clinical nursing work and a master’s degree later, Tan left his homeland and for a job at a long-term care nursing home and rehabilitation facility in North Las Vegas.

Tan featured earlier on this blog here. It appears he is still claiming he knows that mental illness is caused by a chemical imbalance as this article appeared July 11, 2017

Article Prescriptions, Perfectly Personalized

Quote “A lot of people with mental health problems still don’t want to seek help because of social stigma but look at diabetes: It’s a chemical imbalance brought about by genetics. Yet diabetics who receive insulin aren’t ostracized in the community. But if you’re depressed, suicidal, manic depressive — which are all the result of a chemical imbalance — when you talk about it or seek treatment, people often say, ‘Really? Are you that bad?’ And there’s the stigma. Now I have scientific, biological data that proves mental illness is not a wrath from God. It’s not a sign of weakness.”
