Following the link you provided led to this story about Antidepressants greatly increasing the risk of diabetes! The effects of diabetes are enough to depress anybody.

Antidepressant Use Linked to Type 2 Diabetes
Two new studies suggest that antidepressant use is associated with an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, reports the Finnish medical journal Duodecim.

One study, which included 3,000 Americans, found that taking antidepressants more than doubled the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes over a 10-year period.

In another study, conducted in Finland, researchers concluded that the Type 2 diabetes risk increased when antidepressant use exceeded 200 days. The risk is, however, relatively small as only 17 people who had been on antidepressants between 200 and 399 days developed diabetes in the past five years.

The risk increased when people took the drugs for more than 400 days.

Many Elderly Over-Medicated at Home

Until now, no study has been conducted on what kinds of drug combinations senior citizens take when they live at home instead of in a care facility.

Researcher Tarja Linjakumpu says in her doctoral thesis that the number and combination of drugs may be partly unnecessary - and might be causing some harm.

She discovered that the live-at-home elderly frequently take more than five different kinds of prescriptions, even though the World Health Organisation draws the line for safety at four.

Nearly half of over 64-year-olds take some kind of medication that directly affects the central nervous system.

More Harm Than Good

The study reveals that the cocktail of drugs taken can actually impair the elderlys’ ability to walk and complete basic, everyday tasks. This can lead to them falling more frequently and injuring themselves.

Linjakumpu harshly criticises the presiding view that medication is inevitable for the elderly. She says they are prescribed medicines far too easily even for the most common complaints.

Furthermore, many ailments stem from things like loneliness - in which case simple human contact is far preferable to any pill.

A doctor told me that a lot of elderly people make doctors appointments because it's the only social interaction they have. sad2.gif

My wife just came from the Hospital (Columbis Presbyterian, in NYC,) and was given 4 prescriptions.
One for an anti acid, two for stool softeners, and one for pain. The pain meds, (percodan), totaled 240 pills. She has used 6 of them since Friday morning, and will probably not use any more.
The softeners were replaced by prune juice and apple cider, and the "purple pills" remain unopened.
What a shame that the medical community treats the symptoms yet looks to "manage" disease rather than cure it.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Oh absolutely! Something amazing for stool quality is flax seeds. Put a tablespoon of flax seeds in water over night, then strain off the seeds and drink that slimy water. Or just eat a lot of flax seeds. They pass basically unchanged through the system, but have this slime producing thing going on that lines the intestines and makes everything wonderful. chuckle.gif

It's amazing how mainstream medicine pretends diet has nothing to do with anything. 13.gif

It's so sad. Pills have replaced families in some cases.

Here is an interesting offshoot that's sort of related and sort of not. It's about the falling birthrate especially in Europe and its effects on Europe's future.

Yes, it's been on the table here for several years. The post war baby boomers are retiring and they think importing a workforce is the key to solving this. Meanwhile there's not enough jobs to go around for all the Finns even. gaah.gif

The system itself is broke.
