Het is de bedoeling dat ik regelmatig nieuwe video’s ga uploaden naar YouTube, dus ga er regelmatig even een kijkje nemen.

Ik ontvang geen inkomsten van je bezoek daar, want dat is niet mijn insteek van mijn activiteiten op YouTube.
Het is mijn doel om mensen belangwekkende informatie aan te reiken waarmee ze hun gezondheid kunnen ondersteunen en informatie kunnen ontdekken die ons onthouden wordt via de mainstream media en overheid.

Mijns inziens zijn alle interviews enorm waardevol en zetten ze je aan tot nadenken en bewustwording.
Mijn YouTube pagina heet MindToMind: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_KsClRHH6PQbQO6Y9-SfMg

Je vindt er heel veel afspeellijsten (waaronder de lijst Kaleidoscoop) met allerhande informatie bevattende video’s.
Doe er je voordeel mee.

Wees echter sceptisch, geloof niet zomaar iets, maar doe vooral je eigen onderzoek…


Antidepressants found to be “death pills” that dramatically raise the risk of early death

(Natural News) A study that was conducted by scientists at McMaster University in Canada concluded that antidepressants raised the risk of death among depressed people without a heart disease, to 33 percent, as compared with those who did not regularly take these so-called “medications”.

The researchers analyzed data from 17 previous studies involving almost 380,000 people. The studies showed that people who took antidepressants acquired a greater risk of death by suicide or via other life-threatening issues.

It was not made clear, though, whether the deaths were caused by the antidepressants themselves, or by the depressive symptoms that they were made to treat.

“I prescribe antidepressants even though I do not know if they are more harmful than helpful in the long-term. I am worried that in some patients they could be, and psychiatrists in 50 years will wonder why we did not do more to find out,” said University of Toronto psychiatrist Benoit Mulsant, who was also involved in the study.

The other researchers also pointed out that there may be no need for depressive people to take antidepressants in the first place, as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, and other treatment approaches have also been shown to be just as effective as drugs when it comes to treating depression.

Detractors of the study’s results, however, were quick to defend the positive effects that antidepressant drugs bring to mental illness patients, with Southampton University psychiatrist and Royal College of Psychiatrists psychopaharmacology committee chairman Professor David Baldwin saying: “Unfortunately, this study has major flaws.

Depressed patients have higher risks of a range of physical health problems, all of which carry a risk of increased mortality, and antidepressants are often described for a range of problems other than depression, including chronic pain and insomnia, which also increase mortality.”

A Royal College of Psychiatrists spokesman further said: “Countless studies over the years have shown that antidepressants are a life saver for many, reducing the risk of suicide in depressed patients. It is down to a patient and their doctor to decide together whether the benefits of a medicine outweigh the risks.”

Risk of suicide greater when taking antidepressants?

Wendy Dolin, wife of 57-year-old lawyer Stewart Dolin, took to court Brentford, U.K.-based pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, the original manufacturer of antidepressant Paxil, which Stewart Dolin was taking when he jumped to his death from a train platform and onto an oncoming train back in 2010. A jury awarded Wendy Dolin with $3 million in April 2017 for damages.

Wendy Dolin believed that her husband suffered from a side effect called akathisia, a state of acute physical and mental agitation, due to his regular Paxil intake.

Dolin’s lawsuit lifted the lid on information regarding early clinical trials of Paxil, bringing forth concerns that people who are taking antidepressants, particularly Paxil, are in danger of doing self-harm under the influence of the drug. (Related: Antidepressants burden users with extreme side-effects.)

Glaxo eventually made some changes to their antidepressants’ packaging and cautioned people of all ages who have major depressive disorder, and in 2006 placed a label that said “the frequency of suicidal behavior was higher in patients treated with paroxetine [generic name of Paxil] compared with placebo” – 6.7 times higher.

However, that specific label was replaced in June 2007 by the Food and Drug Administration-mandated warning that all antidepressants carry such a risk.

What Happens To Your Lungs, Brain, Kidneys, Heart, Teeth, & Mood When You Drink Diet Soda

Collective Evolution – by Arjun Walia

Diet soda has come under intense scrutiny over the years, and for good reason. It has been found to leave people at risk for weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, among other serious consequences.

According to Susan E. Swithers, a professor of psychological sciences and a behavioural neuroscientist:  

Public health officials are rightfully concerned about the consequences of consuming sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, but these warnings may need to be expanded to advocate limiting the intake of all sweeteners, including no-calorie sweeteners and so-called diet soft drinks. Although it seems like common sense that diet sodas would not be problematic, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Findings from a variety of studies show that routine consumption of diet sodas, even one per day, can be connected to higher likelihood of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and high blood pressure, in addition to contributing to weight gain.

Not only that, research has shown that these ‘zero calorie’ beverages interfere with the body’s learning responses, and the truth is, fewer calories doesn’t always mean less weight gain. “Research, including studies from Swithers and colleagues, shows that frequent consumption of high-intensity sweeteners may have the opposite effect by confusing the body’s natural ability to manage calories based on tasting something sweet,” the Purdue release reveals. Swithers’ research is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Swithers goes on to describe the public misconception about these sweeteners that is leaving us all at risk:

There is a lot of pressure from the public health sector to find solutions to counter the rise of obesity and chronic disease, and there is a lot of money and business at stake for the food industry as it develops and promotes these products. Beverages are becoming political issues as government leaders and politicians seek regulation and taxing to limit their availability and consumption, but most of these measures exclude diet soft drinks because they are perceived as healthy.

It’s great that she made the industry connection, because the corporatization of science has taken over multiple industries. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), considered one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world has said that “it is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”  

Artificial sweeteners are a big problem. A recent study, titled “Sugar and Artificially Sweetened Beverages and the Risks of Incident Stroke and Dementia, A Prospective Cohort Study,” was published in the journal Stroke earlier this year.

Researchers gathered data from approximately 3,000 adults, and separated them into two categories. In people older than 45 years old, they looked at stroke risk, and for people older than 60, they focused on dementia. Their results showed that drinking diet soda nearly triples your risk of developing stroke or dementia. The study lasted for a decade, and the researchers “observed 97 cases of incident stroke (82) and 81 cases of incident dementia (63 consistent with Alzheimer’s disease).

This is just one of many studies to show such links. We’ve also written a number of articles regarding aspartame, so be sure to check those out if you’re interested.

Below is a a great infographic by Dr. Axe and his team that effectively summarizes the problem.

“When you consume diet soda, not only is it addictive, but it can also cause damage to your body. If you’re drinking diet soda, it’s most likely because you want to lose weight and cut calories. But artificial sweeteners can be as addictive as recreational drugs, nicotine and alcohol… And it doesn’t help you lose weight. Artificial sweeteners seem to confuse the body’s natural ability to manage calories based on tasting something sweet. People tend to then overeat. And get this: People who consume artificial sweeteners are twice as likely to develop metabolic syndrome, too.”

Below is a video that Dr. Axe uploaded to his YouTube channel where Jordan Rubin shares how diet soda destroys your body and how to do a diet soda detox to cleanse your body and break the addiction.

 


Study prompts call to examine flu vaccine and miscarriage

Mail.com

NEW YORK (AP) — A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu.

Vaccine experts think the results may reflect the older age and other miscarriage risks for the women, and not the flu shots. Health officials say there is no reason to change the government recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu. They say the flu itself is a much greater danger to women and their fetuses.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reached out to a doctor’s group, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, to warn them the study is coming out and help them prepare for a potential wave of worry from expectant moms, CDC officials said.

“I want the CDC and researchers to continue to investigate this,” said Dr. Laura Riley, a Boston-based obstetrician who leads a committee on maternal immunization. “But as an advocate for pregnant women, what I hope doesn’t happen is that people panic and stop getting vaccinated.”

Past studies have found flu vaccines are safe during pregnancy, though there’s been little research on impact of flu vaccinations given in the first three months of pregnancy. Flu and its complications kill thousands of Americans every year. The elderly, young children and pregnant women are especially at risk. When a new “swine flu” strain emerged in 2009, it killed 56 U.S. pregnant women that year, according to the CDC.

The study’s authors, two of whom are CDC researchers, saw a big difference when they looked at women who had miscarried within 28 days of getting a shot that included protection against swine flu, but it was only when the women also had had a flu shot the previous season.

They found 17 of 485 miscarriages they studied involved women whose vaccinations followed that pattern. Just four of a comparable 485 healthy pregnancies involved women who were vaccinated that way. The first group also had more women who were at higher risk for miscarriage, like older moms and smokers and those with diabetes. The researchers tried to make statistical adjustments to level out some of those differences but some researchers don’t think they completely succeeded.

Other experts said they don’t believe a shot made from killed flu virus could trigger an immune system response severe enough to prompt a miscarriage. And the authors said they couldn’t rule out the possibility that exposure to swine flu itself was a factor in some miscarriages.

Two other medical journals rejected the article before a third, Vaccine, accepted it. Dr. Gregory Poland, Vaccine’s editor-in-chief, said it was a well-designed study that raised a question that shouldn’t be ignored. But he doesn’t believe flu shots caused the miscarriages. “Not at all,” said Poland, who also is director of vaccine research at the Mayo Clinic.

Though this study may cause worry and confusion, it is evidence “of just how rigorous and principled our vaccine safety monitoring system is,” said Jason Schwartz, a Yale University vaccine policy expert.

Some of the same researchers are working on a larger study looking at more recent data to see if a possible link between swine flu vaccine and miscarriage holds up, said James Donahue, a study author from the Wisconsin-based Marshfield Clinic Research Institute. The results aren’t expected until next year at the earliest, he said.
