Intro: Is your child being "mentally screened" at school without your knowledge or permission?

TeenScreen, usurping parental rights.

Teen Screen, a program advertised as a "free" psychiatric "service" to prevent suicide, has caused an uprising all across the US. Citing the dangers of psychiatric drugs and important issues of parental rights, individuals and determined groups have spoken out against TeenScreen as a harmful factor in the attempts to care for the problems of children and teens.

TeenScreen's aim is to locate more children that can be identified as mentally ill and routed into mental health treatment. Many of these would be "treated" with psychiatric drugs, ignoring the fact that many of these very same drugs carry FDA-mandated Black Box warning labels because they are known to cause violence and suicide.

US study supports claims of MMR link to autism
By Sam Lister, Health Correspondent

THE safety of the MMR innoculation, the combination vaccine given to young children and widely supported by scientists, will be questioned again this week in a presentation that claims to provide proof of a link to autism.

American researchers say that their study supports the findings of Andrew Wakefield, the discredited gastroenterologist who raised fears that the measles, mumps and rubella injection might be causing autism.

Uptake of the vaccine decreased sharply after Dr Wakefield suggested that MMR should be avoided in favour of single vaccinations. His research, published in The Lancet in 1998, detected traces of the measles virus in the guts of 12 children with autism.

By N. R. KLEINFIELD

Dr. John Newcomer is a psychiatrist who generally treats people with severe ailments of the mind and spirit. But before his patients sit down, before he hears about their clammy paranoia or renegade voices, Dr. Newcomer wants to know about their waist size.

He steers them to a scale to learn their weight. He orders a blood sugar test. If big numbers come up, he begins a conversation about Type 2 diabetes, a disease associated with obesity that is appearing with alarming frequency among the mentally ill.

Vitamin deficiency diseases have long been recognized and have been practically eliminated by making sure our normal foods are sufficiently varied to give us all or at least a major portion of the vitamins we need. But nutrition is more than just avoiding the most obvious and life-threatening pitfalls. Beyond deficiency there is the normal functioning of our body processes and optimal health. Anti-oxidants work to keep our tissues from aging and to keep away another set of illnesses, that are not properly recognized to stem from deficiencies, but nevertheless are mediated by the fact that the body misses certain beneficial nutrients. Beldeu Singh, an antioxidant researcher in Malaysia, says:

"There is a growing body of information based on antioxidant research and how the free radical mechanism generates oxidative stress in tissues leading to inflammations or oxidative injury or inactivation of enzymes involved in cellular function and how free radicals, being extremely reactive, damage protein or hormone molecules or cell membranes and promote aging of the body and how free radicals create the onset of chronic or degenerative conditions especially when they are in excess of antioxidants. This lends support to the new wave on the use of exogenous antioxidants and minerals for maintaining optimal health and to create a vibrant, healthy and productive middle age and to push into the eighties."

Antioxidants function as an integrated system Image: Beldeu Singh


In contrast to the mechanical activity of testing each isolated substance for signs of deficiency disease at low levels of intake, the nutrients we call antioxidants work together forming a whole system that must be functional to keep the body well. This is one of the reasons why recommended daily intakes are of very limited use for optimizing health.

"The antioxidant defense mechanism is a system that comprises the selenium based antioxidants produced in the body that function together with the exogenous antioxidants of plant origin such as vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin E. Hence administering one vitamin for a specific cure as in the case of drug administration may not be the correct or proper approach for improving total health. The antioxidant approach requires that the antioxidant defense mechanism functions effectively as a system to restore health or improve the body’s ability to fight infection or reverse a chronic disease or to slow down the progress of diseases. And this requires a basic understanding of the lipoic acid antioxidant network and the need for selenium by the body to produce glutathione and selenoproteins."

With new trans fat labeling laws now going into effect, which require food manufacturers to list the trans fat content right on the nutrition facts label, it's time to be brutally honest about the continued use of trans fat and hydrogenated oils in the food manufacturing industry.

For decades, food manufacturers have known about the dangers to the health of consumers caused by hydrogenated oils, and yet, until recently, food manufacturers were able to claim innocence by saying that their ingredient was not really proven to be dangerous, or that it is perfectly legal to use. Today, however, the overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrates the human health hazards correlated with the consumption of hydrogenated oils and trans fatty acids, which means there is no longer any reasonable justification for the use of this ingredient in foods, other than the profitability of the foods being marketed to consumers.

Chemical in Plastics Linked to Prostate Cancer

By Environment News Service, June 2, 2006
http://www.ens-newswire.com

CHICAGO, Illinois, (ENS) - The first evidence that exposure to low doses of environmental estrogens during development of the prostate gland in the male fetus may result in a predisposition to prostate cancer later in life is presented by a study in the June 1 issue of the journal "Cancer Research."

In this study, a research team led by Dr. Gail Prins of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and Dr. Shuk-Mei Ho of the University of Cincinnati worked with rats during the developmental period corresponding to the second and third trimester of human pregnancy.

Big Pharma scare tactics: How the pharmaceutical industry influences American consumers Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, especially in this case. Lloyd Grove, a columnist for the New York Daily News, says that the pharmaceutical lobby in the United States, a group called PhRMA, actually commissioned the writing of a fiction novel designed to scare Americans into avoiding prescription drugs from Canada. The book was supposed to tell a story of terrorists who altered prescription drugs from Canada in order to kill Americans who were buying them over the internet or crossing the border to buy them at lower prices. Bizarre, huh? What an interesting tactic to try to convince people to pay sky-high prices -- monopoly prices, in fact -- for prescription drugs in the United States. But that's only part of this story. When the book project fizzled, the authors were offered $100,000 to keep quiet about the deal, says Grove. The book was also supposed to be "dumbed down" for women, because apparently women make up a large part of the prescription drug buyers in the United States, and the people in charge of this project wanted to make sure women could "understand it."

In 2003, the pharmaceutical industry passed out $16.4 billion worth of free drug samples to doctors. These so-called free samples are literally killing people. Two young lads who were lucky enough to get free samples of Zoloft are now sitting in prison.

After visits to their family doctors, Christopher Pittman and Zachary Schmidkunz were both sent home with a bag of Zoloft samples with no warnings about the drug's side effects. They both went on to commit murder, were sent to prison, and are now waiting for hearings on their appeals.
