Lack of REM sleep linked to higher dementia risk

PHRMA Knowingly Designed ADHD Drugs to be Addictive


1887 Amphetamine is synthesized in Germany by Romanian chemist Lazar Edeleanu who named it phenylisopropylamine.

1893 Methamphetamine is synthesized from ephedrine in Japan by chemist Nagayoshi Nagai.

1933 Smith, Kline and French began selling it as an inhaler under the brand name Benzedrine as a decongestant.

1936 Benzedrine sulfate, Benzedrine®, introduced and used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, including narcolepsy, obesity, low blood pressure, low libido, chronic pain and as an over-the-counter inhaler to treat asthma.

When Benzedrine® became a controlled substance, it was replaced by propylhexedrine, also known as hexahydromethamphetamine.

Amphetamines are "power drugs" that reduce fatigue, heighten aggression, and diminish human warmth and empathy.

When used chronically amphetamines induce stereotyped thought and behavior rather than creativity. Long-term use of amphetamines often exacerbates depression.

Extended binges on methamphetamine leads to hallucinations and paranoia.

The combination of hallucinations and feelings of fear and paranoia is known as methamphetamine induced psychosis.

Methamphetamine induced psychosis is caused by methamphetamine's effect on at least three areas of the brain: the visual cortex, the auditory cortex, and the amygdala.

A large part of this induced psychosis is the by product of fatigue, a shutting down of the higher thought processes and lack of dreaming to reset neurons.

Frontal lobes are often damaged by addiction to methamphetamine.

1941 Massive amounts of methamphetamines are produced by both the Allies and Axis powers.

John F. Kennedy and Adolf Hitler both receive daily injections of methamphetamine.

Adolf Hitler's Wehrmacht distributed methamphetamine tablets to German fighting troops throughout World War II as did the US Army Air Forces.

The Japanese used methamphetamine to help the teen age suicide bombers (kamikaze) to complete their airplane flights to their intended American warship targets.

After World War II there were huge stockpiles of methamphetamines left in many countries, especially in Japan and throughout northern Europe.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, a huge surge in methamphetamine abuse was noted in Scandinavia and Japan following the dumping of these methamphetamine stocks onto the civilian market.

"I have seen desperate Heroin™ addicts, unable to find a workable vein to shoot their next fix suffering from liver disease and God knows what else, recover physically 100% and go on to lead relatively decent lives. Stimulant abusers, too, can make remarkable physical recoveries although, in truth, it's much more difficult than recovering from Heroin™." - John J. Coleman





1967 31 million prescriptions in America for amphetamines.

1994 263 meth labs are seized in America.

2000 1,800 meth labs are seized by DEA.

4,600 meth labs are seized by local police in America.

2006 Harvard Work Hours, Health and Safety Group reports that one in five resident-physicians admitted making a fatigue-related mistake that injured a patient.

One in 20 admitted a fatigue-related mistake that resulted in a patient's death.

"Working day and night, rather than transferring patient care to a fresh doctor, increases serious medical errors in ICUs by 36%, including a 460% increase in serious diagnostic mistakes.

Twenty-four hours without sleep slows reaction time comparably to alcohol intoxication.

Physician-trainees routinely fall asleep during lectures, on patient rounds, while examining patients and even during surgery.

After working more than 24 hours, resident physicians are 73% more likely to stab themselves with a needle and 168% more likely to crash driving home." - Charles A. Czeisler

"Partway through a 36-hour shift at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I was hungry and hadn't slept for 24 hours, but I was facing an overflowing intensive care unit and somehow needed to discharge five patients to make room for more.

Mr. "Smith", who had esophageal surgery, was a borderline call.

Because of the pressure I was under, I decided to remove his breathing tube and transfer him to another unit.

That turned out to be a very bad decision.

After six hours he still wasn't waking up." - Peter Pronovost

2007 A raid in Mexico yields $205 million in cash, mostly $100 dollar bills, weighing 4,500 lb earned selling methamphetamines.



ADHD

The Drug War on Boys

"ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease"

Leon Eisenberg


Ritalin®, Vyvanse®, Strattera®, and Adderall®

"People with attention deficit disorder (as well as those with dyslexia, depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorders) usually have extraordinary talents that get buried under troubles and disappointments.

Getting enough sleep, eating right and getting lots of physical exercise help with attention deficit disorder (and everything else)." - Edward M. Hallowell

"There are many children whose only problem in life is not doing their homework but are medicated with ADHD drugs; and the majority of their parents had no idea that they were giving their children amphetamines or amphetamine-like substances." - Bruce Levine


2001 Marketing of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs legalized.

PHRMA began aggressively marketing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs.

2001 to 2006 Use of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs has increased 60%.

2006 25 people - including 19 children - die suddenly within the last 4 years while using attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs which include Ritalin®, Concerta®, Methylin® and Metadate® - all stimulants; 43 people taking the drugs for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder experienced serious cardiovascular events, including strokes, cardiac arrest and heart palpitations; 26 serious cardiovascular problems were reported in children, including two heart attacks and two strokes.

3.3 million Americans 19 or younger and nearly 1.5 million age 20 and older are taking attention deficit disorder medicines.

Children in America are prescribed attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs at 10 times the rate that children are prescribed attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs in Europe.

Nearly 1 in 10 12-year-old American boys take a stimulant.

2011 ADHD drugs and their generic equivalents are responsible for nearly 23,000 emergency room visits in America.

Over a six-year span, there's been a 400% increase in ER visits due to side effects of these drugs.

"Patients are no longer just taking medications in childhood, but are encouraged to stay on them when they become adults.

Vyvanse®, an amphetamine, and Concerta® were introduced in 2008 for treating adults.

Students are taking the drugs to increase academic performance, and professionals such as physicians and lawyers are taking stimulants in hopes of boosting their productivity.

These drugs have therefore become increasingly popular.

According to a 2007 study, prescriptions for ADHD drugs in the methalphenidate and amphetamine categories rose by almost 12% per year between 2000 and 2005." - Paul Solomon



dangers of smoking meth


The excess and continual use of methamphetamine while not necessarily causing excessive memory loss causes the human brain to run in a cyclic pattern of thought, like a viynl record stuck in a groove, that cycles back upon itself repeatedly interjected with hallucinogenic day dreams.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez describes perfectly the psychosis experienced by a methamphetamine user in his story about the insomnia plague.

After many hours of wakefulness the methamphetamine user is as close to the zombies portrayed in horror movies as all higher brain functions cease.

Frontal lobe functions no longer work.

Chronic methamphetamine use is a form of insanity.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
