Have Some Soma, and Don’t Mind The Cameras
The BBC reports that “Prozac ‘found in drinking water’” in Britain, and that:
In the decade leading up to 2001, the number of prescriptions for antidepressants went up from nine million per year to 24 million per year, says the paper.
They point to a Observer story, “Stay calm everyone, there’s Prozac in the drinking water.”
So, 24 million people taking prozac out of a population of 60 million. Now its clear to me how people cope with all those cameras.

[Update: Thanks to Philll-prescriptions are a month at a time. So it’s “only” 3% of the population at any one time. Which begs the question of how people cope.
