Maybe this will lead to some honest, open debate about ECT and its effects on the brain, backed up by some solid data. South Carolina had the first successful ECT lawsuit a couple years ago (thanks in part to efforts Dr.Peter Breggin), so its apparent that even with ECT's mini-"comeback," people are (understandably) concerned about the potential ill-effects of zapping the brain.

I personally don't want to ever have ECT, but I would like for the FDA to at least regulate this industry and demand the kind of data they get from drug manufacturers before putting meds on the market. Then again--look at Avandia. Who's to say that the FDA review process will actually result in a safer ECT?
