The Genesis of President Bush’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health

The Genesis of President Bush’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health

Screening for mental illness is the most controversial topic concerning mental health today. Various government entities, private foundations, organizations, think tanks and universities, all flanked by cunning public relations firms, are hard at work trying to make mental health screening as common as a dental checkup. Despite public outrage over screening, these entities are working feverishly to establish this system. With so much clamor of disagreement for such a program, why, then, do these entities push forward with such ferocity? This article reveals exactly how this all got started, who’s really behind “the big push,” and how President Bush was tricked into establishing what might be the most detrimental program in the history of mankind.

Researchers at the University of Texas say that women who experience anxiety symptoms during pregnancy are not more susceptible to having pregnancy complications such as longer labor or low birth weight babies. Previous research showed mixed results, but this study answers the question more definitively.

Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment May Involve Molecular Janitors

Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment May Involve Molecular Janitors

Researchers at the Salk Institute in California say they have found molecular janitors that help clean away beta-amyloid from the brain. This research helps explain why Alzheimer’s develops as we age. Many scientists believe that beta-amyloid is the primary culprit in Alzheimer’s disease.

Most of the drugs on the market for Alzheimer’s disease only treat or alleviate the symptoms. There is no cure. This new research may lead to a much better treatment because they can attack the cause of Alzheimer’s disease. "It's a whole new way of thinking in the Alzheimer's field," said Dr. Andrew Dillin, a biologist at California's Salk Institute for Biological Studies who led the new research.
