Spanking and Deviant Sex

This article is a hoot. If everyone who was ever spanked exhibited deviant sexual behavior our country would be in really bad shape. It was worth a good laugh, especially in light of its' complete lack of credible scientific support.

Medication only helps with severe depression

This article begs the question of why antidepressants are prescribed for everything under the sun seemingly, including even mild depression. Why do we keep using them if they don't work. Seems like considering other options might be a much better idea, rather than suffering the serious side effects that can occur. check out this web site if you get a chance ( It may be the best way to get to the bottom of what appears like depression.

Flu Vaccine Craziness Continued

This is one of the craziest headlines I have seen in a long time. This would be like me telling my patients that they should take echinacea to strengthen their immune system even though it is completely ineffective for strengthening the immune system. I got a real chuckle out of this article and thought you should get one to. You will also notice that there are no statistics anywhere in the article that support the need for the flu shot in the first place. If you have a lead on some real statistical analysis of the flu vaccines and their effectiveness I would love to see them.

Psychiatry is a modern nightmare

I think this may be enlightening for many. I will let you draw your own conclusions.

Mercury and Autism

This article is interesting but somewhat misleading. I don't think most educated people who believe there is a connection with autism and vaccines think that it is related to blood levels of mercury. Most I think would say that they believe that it is mercury's effects where it deposits itself in soft tissues (organs, brain, intestines etc.) Have a read but make sure you see the other side of the story on the internet about this issue.

When do we start questioning modern psychiatry

I really can't say much about this. 25-30% of my patients now seem to be on some type of psychiatric or anti-depression medication. If I were to look at the patients that see a psychiatrist, the percentages would be much higher. My question is: "If you are going to the psychiatrist for some severe psychological condition or you are suicidal, does becoming more suicidal worsen your condition or is it a good thing ? The answer seems obvious but these drugs are being pushed with new vigor and strength by many in the psychiatric world. Please take a read, the article was a little troubling for me.
