The purpose of the following links is to provide information and alternative ways of looking at health care. Few conventional links are given, as the conventional way of looking at health care is already overrepresented in society.

Some revealing videos including a series originally posted on the Internet by the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) have been removed. On the other hand new videos are regularly appearing, particularly those posted by victims or their families. You can find them by typing "tardive dyskinesia" in YouTube's search engine. Beware that there is also a musical band which offensively calls itself "Tardive Dyskinesia."
