Antipsychotic Drugs Will Not Avert Delirium Or Dementia Sugar Pill Will Work Better

A recent study major study found that anti-psychotic drugs such as haloperidol branded as Haldol are no more effective than a placebo for treating delirium or dementia. This is a similar study where anti-psychotics are no better than a placebo to avert depression.

Powerful drugs that have been used for decades to treat delirium are ineffective for that purpose are useless according to the New England Journal of Medicine. Many doctors in higher end medical facilities prescribe these drugs in intensive care units and emergency rooms across the nation. Millions worldwide are getting these drugs to combat delirium and they have zero effectiveness. This is why we call this Pharma Fraud. Insurance firms and patients are paying top dollar for products that do not work and have never worked.

Patients with delirium are often confused and incoherent and sometimes can suffer hallucinations. This can lead to long term issues. condition can lead to long-term cognitive problems, including a form of dementia.

We hope patients and insurance companies will sue these firms for fraud. Finally a study which is not stirred for pharma, but for the real truth.

Climate Change and Mental Health? Really?

The UN report recently forwarded says we have 20 years or life as we know it is over.
Nick Obradovich is a research scientist at the MIT Media Lab. He co-author “catastrophic” ,Which is a study in mental health to climate change. Now Mr. Obradovich has a degree in economics and environmental studies at the University of Santa Clara, he has a Masters and PHD in Political Science at UCSD. He is a research fellow at MIT and doing a post-doctorate at Harvard. It appears he has spent his entire life at school and studying. We will give him his due.
His new paper says human behavior and moods will be impacted adversely by climate change as all the world gets hotter by up to 2 degree Celsius. We have not read his full paper, but we wonder about the timing of the publication as the UN just warned the world of impending doom if we don’t all give up our cars. Part of Obradovich’s studies was in Sub-Sahara Africa where heat is a daily issue. Going up 2 degrees daily we are sure is very common. Are all African’s on anti-depressants due to the heat? We think not and are thankful that they are not totally exposed to psychotropic drugs like the Western world. We would also like to know if Obradovich was funded in any way by pharmaceutical firms? They love to fund academia to come up with results that they want.
This study looked at data from US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, which had 2 million people self-assess their state of mental well-being from 2002 to 2012.
The research notes an increase of “problems with emotions” during 30-day periods that had temperatures averaging over 86 degrees Fahrenheit. This affected people with low income and women most likely. Their determination was that there was a 0.5 increase in mental health difficulties for people in a month that averaged over 86 degrees Fahrenheit when compared to a month with an average between 77 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
Other studies have found a connection between suicide rates and temperature.
Ok, lets say this and other heat studies are correct that people get moody with too much sun. I think similar studies show people get moody when it is too cold and dreary. This study simply provides data for climate change adherents to further their cause even though cold temperatures will certainly cause moodiness. I feel dreary on a dreary day. That is common knowledge and it is also backed by science.
People can buy electric cars and mowers, high efficiency appliances, install solar, walk to work. These things are available in western culture. It is the enforcement by a government that may have the greatest impact on ones mood. If the government forces you to cut down on your showers and kitchen water use like California is doing now. 55 gallons max per person by 2022 and 50 by 2030. They may also force you to put a meter on your car and charge you if you go over their limit on mileage.
Recycling is good, efficiency in electronics is great, but will the government force or fine you into doing so? That we think will change your mood on climate change.

Why Psychology is not a Science- Dr. Blasey-Ford Testimony

Dr. Blasey-Ford is a psychology professor and she gives her reason for hazy memory of the Brett Kavanaugh incident some 36 years ago
“How are you so sure that it was he (Kavanaugh)?” Senator Feinstein asked.
“The same way that I’m sure I’m talking to you right now,” Ford said. “Basic memory functions, and, also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain, that sort of, as you know, encodes-- that neurotransmitter—encodes memories into the hippocampus, so the trauma-related experience is kind of locked there, whereas other details kind of drift.”
Well another psychologist Timothy Wilson a professor at the University of Virginia indicated psychology is not a science like physics or chemistry said to the LA Times in 2012. Psychologists can’t measure happiness or depression with a ruler or known facts and mathematical equations that work out in reality. Scientists refute psychology as a science.

Why do you think psychiatrist or psychologist work with both sides of a court case? One says the defendant is sane and the other says he is insane. Psych is not a science but an opinion, or interpretation. Science needs evidence to support its theory. Psychology has conflicting evidence. Blasey-Ford has a hazy memory of her attack, but blames Kavanaugh because perhaps politics. She didn’t think it was Brett Kavanaugh until 2012. Many other women who experience rape “a real crime” against women will tell you every detail of the incident. They can reiterate the sounds, smells, and every occurance. Dr. Blasey-Ford can’t and she has her reason we state earlier. Both other male witnesses (Kavanaugh and Mark Judge) she indicates were there said “it never ever happened”. A women Mrs. Leland Ingham Keyser says she has no recollection of being at the party that Blasey-Ford claims she was at. Blasey-Ford claimed Patrick (PJ) J. Smyth was also there. Mr. Smyth said he was never at the party Mrs. Ford says he was at and that he vouches for Brett Kavanaugh as a person of integrity. Additionally, the Republican Party indicated they have testimony from two men who admit they were the ones at the party and were the ones Blasey-Ford says were Mark Judge and Kavanaugh.

So something appears to have happened to Dr. Blasey-Ford, but her psych science fails her and everyone else. If all witnesses say they were not there, and two men recall the incident and they were the one’s. Blasey_Ford also uses PTSD as a defense of you vague memory, but PTSD causes you to relive the event over and over. Here is a Dr. who doesn’t understand her own subject.
Well science is based on facts, and evidence. The facts say she identified the wrong men at the party who molested her,
Psychology is not a science but an opinion without any facts to back up the analysis.
