Tom Cruise has slammed women who take anti-depressants to cure depression.He told American TV show Access Hollywood on Thursday (27-05-05): "These drugs are dangerous.I have actually helped people come off them."There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that.But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that.You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things".
