The Truth about Depression 97 min, 30,000, views, BBC slick pro-drug (promotes the sales pitch given by Pharma) documentary which argues that depression is real, affects behavior, has causes in the brain, and needs antidepressant to fix the problem,    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVLAjowFkY4  Sucks

Instead of treating a people with a drug that makes them feel better, pharma uses fat-soluble drugs that accumulate and remain in the body, with horrible withdrawal (very addicting), that cloud cognitive processes creating confusion and making the patient dependent on his doctor:  they are tranquilizers labeled as a panacea  A number of the illicit recreational drugs perform much better than pharma’s downers:  Amphetamines for depression (as they were legally prescribed in the 50s), marijuana and opiates for anxiety, and LSD in a clinical situation with talk therapy for major neurosis (as done in the 60s). The issue of compliance with treatment would vanish if downers helped the psychiatric patients.  For children we need to make the interesting and pleasant rather than drug the kids.  Behaviorist therapy (distinguished form CBT) has been shown to work best for nearly all psychiatric problems.  No more than 2%, as in the 1940s should be psychotropic drugs.  Psychiatric problems with a genetic-environmental basis have been strongly selected against in the gene pool.  With a just-ideal society and a government acting as a good parent (Plato’s analogy), psychiatric drugs would be for the 2% because the incidence of mental illness would be around 2%, and recreational drugs would have at most occasional use.

I bought a Google Chromecast for $35.  It allows me to stream from my laptop to the television.  I have the laptop by the couch, and I have a stereo hooked up to the television.  I plugged the Chromecast into the HDMI outlet on the Sony Stereo.  The Sony is hooked up to my Vizio TV.   A much better experience than a computer monitor and small speakers or the TV’s tinny speakers.    

Want to know what is causing the obesity epidemic watch those videos.  Get it going; this is a superior learning format, and it will motivate you more than a book or my research papers to do the right thing--and share the experience. Rise above corporate media. As my father said.” Don’t trust the ruling class.” 

For those who want to know where we are heading economically, politically, and educationally, there is another collection of documentaries  http://healthfully/org/rh/id9.html  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

[1] Colitis, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease should be treated the same.  Doctors are trained to make subtle distinctions, and the to sculpture a treatment to their classification.  This in most cases is merely market ploy creating an aura of expertise and personal care.  Most of this is pure marketing dressed up as science.
