Rob Schneider Blames Parkinson's Drugs for Robin Williams' Death, "One of the Side Effects is Suicide"

Actor Rob Schneider has blamed his good friend Robin Williams' tragic death on a drug he was taking to combat the early symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.

Schneider, 50, who has been friends with the Mrs. Doubtfire star for the past 20 years since they first met on Saturday Night Live, took to Twitter on Thursday, Aug. 14, to talk Parkinson's drugs and the role they played in his pal's death.

"Now that we can talk about it. #RobinWilliams was on a drug treating the symptoms of Parkinson's. One of the SIDE-EFFECTS IS SUICIDE!" he wrote.

"The Evil pharmaceutical industry ADMITS TO OVER 100,000 people in the USA DIE A YEAR FROM "PRESCRIPTION" DRUGS!! #RobinWilliams."

Schneider's outburst was hot on the heels of Williams' wife Susan Schneider's revelation that her husband had been suffering from the degenerative neurological disease, although he had not wanted his diagnosis to become public knowledge yet.

We don't know what is safe to eat anymore.

Over the long history of mankind we figured out by trial and error what we could safely eat. Little changed from generation to generation, and mistakes in food choices tended to be self correcting; mistakes killed those making them.

But now, changes in the food we consume are occurring at a lightning fast pace. Once such change was the replacement of saturated fats with vegetable oils. This began in the mid to late 19th century and by 1900 we had effectively figured out how to use chemicals, heat and pressure to extract fats cheaply from seeds like cotton seeds, corn, soy beans, sunflowers, etc. Unlike saturated fats, the polyunsaturated fats that come from these seeds are unstable and easily oxidize. You can test this yourself by putting out at room temperature a small amount of saturated oil like coconut oil and a small amount of corn oil, and in a month see which one has gone rancid.

The omega 6 fats in these seed oils easily oxidize at body temperature, and this is damaging to the cells which have them as part of their structure. These fats when they oxidize breakdown into the toxic aldehyde, 4-HNE which can kill cells. Interestingly people who die from Parkinson's have high levels of 4-HNE in their brains. The incidence of skin cancer correlates to seed oil consumption, yet the medical establishment blames the sun, even though we get much less sun today than people did 150 years ago.

Here is one description of the role of seed oils in Parkinson's:


In addition to being involved in the development of Parkinson's these Omega 6 fats suppress thyroid function and immune system function. If you want to fatten a pig, feed him something high in polyunsaturated fat instead of saturated fat; he will be lean on a diet of saturated fat (think of the obesity epidemic).

If you have been using polyunsaturated oils high in Omega 6 oils, simply stop and instead use coconut oil, animal fats, and to a lesser extent olive oil which is monounsaturated, and more stable. If you already have a neurodegenerative disease like Parkinson's you can take a combination of L-tyrosine and vitamin B6. The L-tyrosine breaks down into l-dopa which can cross the blood/brain barrier and can be converted by B6 into dopamine. A ketogenic diet is also known to control some symptoms of neurodegenerative disease as do iodine, magnesium, and vitamins A, D, & K2 (mk-4).

Too bad Robin Williams relied on bad dietary choices and bad conventional medicine, but it is from the failures of people like him that we can learn what to not consume.

Great find

Good to know, thanks for posting!

Can you please learn what a "DP Original" is?

If you could learn that, it would reduce the work burden on me.

Please read this.

And FYI, an article from US Magazine is NOT a "DP Original."

Sorry for not categorizing it correctly... another idea to save your work burden would be to not worry so much about what category it is in... I have never, ever noticed the categories. Thanks for saying please.

Have you seen the Lego Movie yet, where President/Lord Business has to arrange all the lego bricks according to the instructions? This reminds me of that...

I'm off to build a double-decker couch!

Won't happen again!

"Everything is awesome!"

Glad you were able to clear your mind and see the pieces necessary to build your double-decker couch ... good thing to have in case the ship goes down, eh?


There is something about your reply

I find fascinating and I can't quite surmise exactly why.

Thought I'd share that anyways, good luck with the couch!

Dementia & depression are associated with Parkinson's Disease.

Will we ever know if Williams was taking antidepressant medications?

Was he taking high dosages of Vitamin D3 to address these conditions without Rx drugs?
Parkinson’s Disease Study Finds Possible Delay to Depression, Dementia
January 23, 2014
According to findings in a recent study, when taking Vitamin D in high dosages, patients with Parkinson’s Disease develop better moods and thinking. This can in turn lead to an alternative in possibly delaying or preventing dementia, along with depression.
1. 60% of PD patients have mild to moderate depression, in many instances, they are undiagnosed.
2. Parkinson’s Disease patients who suffer from dementia or cognitive impairment is about 30 percent.

High doses of vitamin D

Yes, he was low on vitamin D, because they say he was sleeping inside in blackness for 18-20 hours a day... and vitamin D comes from the sun, so I'm sure he was low on vitamin D, even if he was taking the pill form.

And boom

goes the dynamite.

The very first question out of my wife's mouth, verbatim:

"What prescription drugs was he taking?"

And I followed with, "exactly."

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
