Kate Devlin in the Telegraph reports that antidepressants can make young people more than twice as likely to feel suicidal. - Crazy, isn't it? - The times I've heard doctors boasting about 'saving people's lives', when actually they have been talking about prescribing antidepressants! - not about saving lives at all: just about prescribing pharmaceutical junk! - We don't want young people being made to feel suicidal from taking this junk that purports to be treatment for depression! The only people who benefit from this are the drug companies and their shareholders et al.
A major cause of 'depression', especially in young people, is dieting or otherwise eating an inadequate diet. It is not necessary or desirable, or even safe, to diet. - To lose excess weight safely and quickly, without drugs or side-effects, give up dieting completely and just concentrate on cutting down on salt and salty food. This reduces fluid retention, the initiating cause of excess weight. This also reduces depression.
Actually there is no good reason to prescribe anti-depressants to anyone. - See Anti-depressants 'no better than dummy pills' about research by a Hull University team led by Prof Irving Kirsch.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver damage and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
