DEMAND CHEMICAL IMBALANCE RETRACTION: Round One: The Most Absurd "Chemical Imbalance" Quote

There's almost 200 quotes on this page so far. In efforts to find the most preposterous I need your help. Over the next few weeks I'll be wanting you to vote. There will be a cut-off point for each post. I have included the Twitter/Facebook link for each of the individuals. If you want to ask them to join in then please feel free to contact them. This will give them an opportunity to retract their claim or not, as the case may be.

Suicide is a national epidemic. We need to treat it like one. - The Washington Post

These two treatments are obviously different, but they both point to an entirely new chemical axis in the brain that could be targeted to treat depression: the glutamine/glutamate axis. Commonly abbreviated Glx, these chemicals are suppressed in people with severe depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and do not increase when patients take serotonin-targeting antidepressants. The company I lead is working to develop drugs to raise Glx without the damaging side effects of ketamine or ECT. The science is promising: The FDA recently issued a biomarker letter of support, its first in psychiatry under the 21st Century Cures Act, recognizing that an increased level of Glx correlates with decreased levels of depression and that drugs targeting Glx are linked to a reduction in depression and suicidal ideation.
