USA TODAY recently ran an article, “Deadly ‘superbugs’ invade U.S. health care facilities“. The article is not only timely but was well-researched and did a good job of putting multi-drug resistant micro-organisms (“MDR Superbugs”) back into the spotlight; at least, for the moment. Of course, readers of the Bio/Tech News have known about this potential threat for years now. But to the extent USA TODAY has contributed to the effort to raise the general awareness about this real and growing threat, we applaud them.
Breakthrough in NeuroScience Offers You Hope for a Multitude of Brain Diseases and Neurological Disorders–Without Drugs and Without Side-Effects!
Our aim in this Special Report (click here) is to give you two things to take away with you: 1) a basic understanding of what we call “Neurotransmitter Disease” and how it is that it presents with so many apparently diverse and varied symptoms (see below); and, 2) an understanding of how, in many cases, it might be possible for you or a loved one to secure a simple, non-drug solution to this widespread, increasingly common problem.
A recent study by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics reported that antidepressant use in the United States has skyrocketed over recent years, increasing nearly 400% between 2005-2008 alone. The study went on to report that antidepressants are the most frequently used prescription drug taken by Americans between the ages of 18-44; that more than one in ten Americans over the age of 12 takes an antidepressant for depression; and, that almost one in every four women between the ages of 40-59 takes antidepressants. What’s more, over 60% of Americans taking antidepressant medication have been taking it longer than 2 years and about 14% of Americans taking antidepressant medication have done so for 10 years or longer.
Given the above, and unless things change, there’s no reason to assume we’ll see a decline in the number of Americans taking these medications. It appears that antidepressants are here to stay. This is not only disturbing, it’s depressing.
But wait! There is a better way. We’re not thinking here about techniques, or methods, or therapies, although many of them are helpful. We’re thinking about a strikingly-simple solution to what can at times seem to be a complex, insurmountable and overwhelming problem. In a nutshell, we’re going to tell you about a real breakthrough: a non-drug, alternative approach to Depression which can offer you some real hope. So, take heart. And, read on…
About twenty years ago, in the early 1990s, we wrote a Special Report concerning the emergence of Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis. Since then, we have continued to keep a wary eye on developments within the burgeoning, and now, quite frankly, scary realm of Multi-Drug Resistant pathogens (which we have nicknamed “MDR Superbugs“). A couple of years ago, we published a confidential Special Report (“Superbugs: The Coming Deadly Global Pandemic”) which was sent to our paid subscribers. The alarm we sounded in that Report was the result of months and months of research, and thoughtful reflection over the years.
Since then, we have concluded that it would be a good idea to make our findings, opinion, speculation and recommendations accessible to a wider reading audience, and this information can now be found on our blog, MDR Superbugs. We encourage you—no, we urge you—to read the current post there (“Whistling Past the Graveyard”) where we interact with the recently released report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2013”. The CDC report claims to be “a snapshot of the complex problem of antibiotic resistance today and the potentially catastrophic consequences of inaction”. In a nutshell, we think the CDC’s report has been way too long in coming, the warning and the sense of urgency are far too weak and, in the end, the effort may turn out to be too little, too late.
