Panel advises depression screening for US teens
Mar 29, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Las Vegas Sun
Sun, Mar 29, 2009 An influential government-appointed medical panel is urging doctors to routinely screen all American teens for depression _ a bold step that acknowledges that nearly 2 million teens are affected by this debilitating condition.
Since: Sep 07
Most children who are depressed are that way because of the way their parents have raised them. Putting too much pressure on them to 'succeed' at school, putting too much pressure on them to hie to the parents religious beliefs and sexual 'morality', etc.
If we'd get rid of those sources of pressure and clamp down on the parents who push too hard (and in the case of the religious stuff, ANY pushing is too much).... most of the teens would not be depressed
FDA bans vitamin B6 threaten US healthcare causes depression in ruling
FDA has effectively bans a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6
The FDA has effectively banned a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6 called pyridoxamine by declaring it to be a drug, reports the American Association for Health Freedom. Responding to a petition filed by a drug company, the FDA declared pyridoxamine to be "a new drug." This article continues at:
Large Scale Study Finds Vitamin B6 Deficiency Common in the U.S.
Implications of Vitamin B6 Deficiency
Neurological Abnormalities including depression and cognitive dysfunction
In its role as a vital coenzyme, B6 is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters including serotonin. B6 is required to form serotonin from the amino acid tryptophan. It is also required to synthesize dopamine, norepinephrine and GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). "Early symptoms of vitamin B6 deficiency include depression and confusion" according to Eleanor Noss Whitney and Sharon Rady Rolfes, authors of the text Understanding Nutrition.
Based on the findings of the Tufts study, that B6 deficiency is indeed widespread in the U.S., as is depression, shouldn't plasma B6 (PLP) be assessed in cases of depression and cognitive dysfunction prior to resorting to misused, prescription anti depressant drugs? Is B6 deficiency, along with other nutrient deficiencies like essential fatty acid omega 3, one more link to understanding the underlying causes of depression?
Drugs and Suppliment Mayo Clinic
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine and for myelin formation.
Pyridoxine deficiency in adults principally affects the peripheral nerves, skin, mucous membranes, and the blood cell system. In children, the central nervous system (CNS) is also affected. Deficiency can occur in people with uremia, alcoholism, cirrhosis, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption syndromes, congestive heart failure (CHF), and in those taking certain medications.
Pyridoxine is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in vitamin B complex formulations.
Serious health problems will occur as a result of this ruling . It is obvious that the continuation of "Drug America" is continuing with political objectives (Codex Alimentarius Commission) and the profits of the pharmaceutical an mental health industry.
This (IMO) is an attempt to control Tryptophan (an essential amino acid) for heath and mental stability as B6 is a catalyst for absorption of the amino acid.
Amino Acid: Tryptophan
(Codex Alimentarius Commission. is mandated to set international reference standards and has been making decision behind secretive closed door sessions that will caused forced medicine and drugging based on pharmaceutical input without government oversight thus manipulating of the health and welfare of the public and gaining power and control over world governments.)

Why your kid is drugged in school (1/2)
How it works:
The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government under a program called "Idea" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.
Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.
All this at the cost of your child's sanity.
