Listen To The Full Interview Below:

Dr. Drew Pinsky, Board Certified Internist, Addiction Medicine Specialist, TV Host & Podcaster joined the Guy Benson Show to discuss the predictable and horrible consequences that COVID-19 lockdowns had on young people’s mental and physical well-being.

Dr. Drew on the effects lockdowns had on mental health saying,

“When I saw the panic that was being fomented and the use of fear to cow the public into submission in terms of cooperating with horrible, draconian lockdown measures, I knew, A, there would be horrible consequences from a psychiatric standpoint. And B, the people perpetrating this were giving no thought to the risk reward of these so-called non-pharmacological interventions. It was highly, highly predictable. And from the beginning of these interventions, I kept saying, you are destroying 8 to 15 year olds. That is the population that is going to suffer the most. They’re now ten, 11 to 18, 19 year olds. And it is coming to bear. Whenever I speak to my psychiatric colleagues for the last two years, all they tell me is anxiety, depression, anxiety, depression. That’s all they’re seeing.”
