200 Ordinary Medications Cause Depression and Suicidal Thoughts: Are YOU Taking One of Them?

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

It would be difficult to overlook the epidemic of depression that has struck the United States over the past decades. The CDC recently found that death by suicide was up more than 30% and the use of antidepressants has vaulted 65% in the past 15 years.

There are many different theories about this increase. Everything from internet addiction to the Trump presidency to environmental causes has been blamed. Some believe it’s always been like this but that the stigma has lessened and more people are getting help.

But now there’s one more possible cause that needs to be considered. New research has shown that more than 200 medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, can increase the likelihood of depression and depressive symptoms. And when two or more of these drugs are combined, the potential for depression increases even more.

How Turmeric Can Save the Aging Brain From Dementia and Premature Death

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Presently, there are no pharmaceutical interventions that effectively slow, and certainly not reverse, age-related cerebrovascular pathologies linked to conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. A new study on turmeric extract, however, indicates that a natural curative agent already exists and is close to the everyday consumer as their spice rack. 

A promising study published in Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry titled, “Dietary Curcumin Ameliorates Aging-Related Cerebrovascular Dysfunction through the AMPK/Uncoupling Protein 2 Pathway,”[i] reveals the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin (which gives it its golden hue) may provide what the study authors describe as an “effective therapeutic strategy to reverse age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction.”

Many ordinary meds cause depression; public trust in Pharma hits new low

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

—For years, I’ve been writing about the medical system’s self-feeding mechanism:

Give a patient a drug to treat his symptoms; the drug causes new symptoms, which are diagnosed as a new illness; and then new drugs are given, and those drugs cause still more symptoms, which in turn are diagnosed as a new condition…on and on it goes. Drugged patients suffer tragically and needlessly, and cash piles up in Big Pharma’s coffers.

At one time, this circle of devastation might have been called an accident. But now, all the experts know the truth. Therefore, this is rightly labeled a MARKETING STRATEGY, and, at the highest levels, a covert op to disable the population.

Mass shootings and psychiatric drugs: the connection

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

I’ve been tracking the connection since 1999, when I wrote a long white paper, for the Truth Seeker Foundation, on school shootings and psychiatric drugs. The paper was titled: “Why Do They Do It? School shootings Across America.”

The drugs aren’t the only causative factor, but they produce what I call the Johnny Appleseed effect throughout society. Sprinkle enough of the drugs among enough people and you get otherwise unexplainable violence popping up—in schools, in workplaces. The psychiatric plague eats out the country from the inside.

For the First Time Ever, Lawsuit Targets Billionaire OxyContin Family for Causing Opioid Epidemic

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A landmark lawsuit is the first in the country to name the actual owners of Purdue Pharma who makes the deadly drug OxyContin for their role in the opioid epidemic.

Members of the Sackler family, who’ve made billions pushing their deadly OxyContin drug on the masses are arguably responsible for more deaths than any Mexican drug cartel. Instead of being hunted down at their plush mansions by DEA agents, they are rubbing elbows with members of Congress. Now, however, for the first time, the family is being targeted by a landmark lawsuit for the damages they knowingly caused with their products.

On Tuesday, the state of Massachusetts filed a lawsuit against the multi-billionaire Sackler family over the role their drug OxyContin has played in sparking one of the worst addiction and overdose epidemics in history. The lawsuit accuses the company, Purdue Pharma, and its heirs of spinning a “web of illegal deceit” which fueled the deadly crisis in which America currently finds itself.

A Daily Dose of Turmeric Boosts Your Memory and Improves Mood

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

A new study sheds light on the powerful neuroprotective properties of curcumin, the active ingredient in everyone’s favorite yellow spice. A twice-daily dose of this natural supplement led to a nearly 30% improvement in memory and a boost in mood for adults suffering from mild memory loss

It has become commonly accepted that the bright yellow spice, turmeric. is one of the world’s most potent medicinal plants. Championed by sports and fitness enthusiasts for its anti-inflammatory properties, stories abound of athletes making the switch from post-workout pain-relievers to daily curcumin supplementation—allowing them to avoid countless negative side effects of NSAIDs. Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, is responsible for its bold, yellow hue. A powerful antioxidant, curcumin is one of several compounds called curcuminoids that possess potent medicinal properties. These biologically active micronutrients do more than ward-off inflammation; they have been studied for their role in the prevention of degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and dementia.

Junk Food and the Upsurge of Diabetes: A Global Phenomenon

by Richard Galustian, Global Research:

In this month’s prestigious British Medical Journal, The Lancet, has given considerable coverage in its June issue to the fact of the dangerous upsurge for both young and old of the variety of Diabetes which is becoming one of the largest global health crises of the 21st century.

The Lancet is the oldest medical journal in the world, founded in 1823.

In short, the etymology of the name of the journal was intended to convey excellence in medical research and to provide the “light of wisdom”.

Once thought of as a disease that only affected older people, diabetes is now being diagnosed increasingly in people under the age of 20, the vast implications of which have yet to be fully understood nor appreciated.

Georgia Kidnaps 15-Year-Old Son After Parents Treat His Seizures With Marijuana

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

It’s ridiculous that government believes it has any kind of authority to outlaw a plant, especially one that can provide actual relief in a situation like this.

A 15-year-old Georgia boy was kidnapped by the state from his parents after they treated the boy with a plant, marijuana.

David Brill suffered from multiple seizures every day, sometimes as many as 10.

Finally, his parents had enough and learned that marijuana could be used to treat their son. The only problem? The state thinks it is holier than the Creator and deemed a plant illegal.

WHY HAS MARIJUANA BEEN OUTLAWED? THE REAL REASONS ARE WORSE THAN YOU THINK…

by Joe Martino, Collective Evolution:

To understand how cannabis became so stigmatized, you have to understand something about a plant that is very similar to cannabis but different enough that making it illegal would be preposterous: hemp.

If I told you there was a plant available to us today that could be grown in pretty much any soil, could thrive without the use of pesticides, and could be farmed with very little maintenance, and that this magical plant could be used for a very large number of necessities and goods we use today, but we are doing nothing about it, would you think to yourself, “Joe you must be high or on some other cheap drug”?

Mind-altered America: How drugs like Ambien are turning America into a nation of hallucinating psychos

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

Big Pharma has gotten away with far too much, for far too long; there is no doubt about that. Whether we’re talking about the plethora of children harmed by reckless vaccination programs, their for-profit disease-manufacturing, or simply just the growing numbers of children and teens on treacherous psych meds, America has become a pawn for profit-seeking industry heads. And sadly, many Americans are too medicated to even see the forest for the trees.

Perhaps the biggest sham of all then, is the fact that such a greedy, careless industry has been able to dupe so many people into not only believing in the drugs that they sell, but to completely disregard any and all adverse effects caused by their medications. The pharmaceutical deception is so great that anyone who even dares to speak out about the ill effects caused by medications (especially psych meds) is slammed as a conspiracy theorist.

Roundup Herbicide: A Kidney-Killer?

by Sayer Ji, The Sleuth Journal:

An observational study confirms the hypothesis that Roundup herbicide (glyphosate) is behind the mysterious global epidemic of chronic kidney disease that has taken thousands of lives.

Back in early 2014, in an article titled “Roundup Weedkiller Linked To Global Epidemic of Fatal Kidney Disease,” we first reported on a paper proposing a causal link between exposure to the world’s most popular herbicide (glyphosate) and a mysterious and deadly kidney disorder afflicting agriculture intensive areas in Sri Lanka.

The paper would eventually garner such widespread attention that it compelled the Sri Lankan government to order a ban on Roundup in March of 2014, but it has since been reported that it is still being made widely available for purchase.

Here’s How This Ebola Outbreak Could Potentially Reach the US

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

A new Ebola outbreak is on the radar in the Congo and just over a week ago had reached a city of more than a million people. Well, things likely got a whole lot worse over the weekend when family members of 3 infectious patients with confirmed cases of Ebola broke them out of quarantine and took them to a prayer meeting with at least 50 people. That may seem like it’s a long way from the US but read on.

People at the prayer meeting were definitely exposed, as two of the patients were in the most infectious stages of the disease, with vomiting and diarrhea.

Two of the three escapees are dead and the third was returned to the quarantine center.

Scientists, Funded By Crypto, Using Blockchain to Stop Monsanto from Taking Over Cannabis Industry

by John Vibes, The Free Thought Project:

A group of scientists is using blockchain technology to stop Monsanto from patenting cannabis strains.

As The Free Thought Project reported last week, blockchain startups have been offering interesting solutions for the cannabis industry, which is facing strict regulations from the government, as well as constant take-over attempts by large corporations.

One major concern of cannabis advocates is the possibility of large biotech corporations like Monsanto patenting seeds or even DNA for different strains. A creative solution to this problem is a sort of cannabis genome project, in which researchers use technology that gathers the genetic information of the plant. Medical Genomics, the group behind the project, is publishing all of their results at Kannapedia.com using their StrainSEEK Identification and Registration service.
