Researchers have discovered that common prescription drugs (antidepressants, allergy drugs and more) cause side effects that mimic the onset of dementia. Well finally, this explains why patients who get on one prescription drug always seem to lose their minds and start popping five more drugs (all under doctor's orders, of course).

The reported side effects of these drugs -- called anticholinergics -- include confusion, memory loss and disorientation. These symptoms get diagnosed (surprise!) as early dementia, which almost always gets treated with -- guess what? -- pro-cholinergic medications. In other words, the same patient ends up on two drugs with precisely the opposite biological actions.

It's sort of like overdosing on caffeine to keep you awake while popping sleeping pills to make sure you're relaxed, too. Only in conventional medicine can you find such outright idiocy in the treatment of patients, whose bodies are regarded as chemical testing grounds for whatever new drug the FDA can rubber-stamp as "safe." The whole darned system of over-marketed pharmaceuticals is not merely intellectually dishonest, it's outright fraudulent.

The fact is that the vast majority of senior citizens diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's merely suffer from a combination of brain-impairing prescription drugs and common nutritional deficiencies that are easily corrected. Of course, getting this point across to people requires them to possess some degree of remaining cognitive function, and that's asking far too much of a population which takes so many drugs that the chemicals are showing up in the drinking water of major U.S. cities.

The mass-drugging of the U.S. population is no longer conspiracy talk, it's mainstream America. Just drinking the water now gives you micro-doses of a handful of potentially dangerous meds.

Rowdy bull turns cruel spectator sport into hands-on experience

In Mexico City, a half-ton bull named Pajarito (who obviously never learned the rules of a bullfight) leapt into the stands and started thrashing fans with his horns (the high-priced seats, no less). People who thought they came to see the bull murdered as a form of entertainment suddenly found themselves on the other end of the horns.

The moral of the story is that if you think watching the torture and murder of animals is a form of entertainment, don't be surprised if you end up with a six-inch gash in your chest when one of these bulls decides it doesn't want to play by your rules.

People who get injured watching bullfights, in my view, get exactly what they deserve. In fact, this could be a whole new sport: Let the bulls loose in the stands at every show, and broadcast the whole thing on webcams so the rest of us can be entertained, too. Why limit the fun only to those in attendance? This could be the next big-time reality TV show!

Teenage kids now have diabetes

It has been discovered that U.S. children as young as 13 are now showing diabetes risk factors. This "disease" (actually just a metabolic effect of massive sugar consumption combined with a lack of exercise) used to be called adult-onset diabetes, but now so many children are acquiring it that the "adult" classification seems irrelevant.

The most astonishing thing about this new trend of diabetic teens is that the parents don't think their kids are overweight! I was at a social event recently where I saw a five-year old kid who looked like a sumo wrestler. When I asked his parents whether they thought his weight might be dangerously high, they laughed and said, "No, he's just a healthy eater!"

A healthy eater? For those of you who may not be familiar with the subtleties of American lingo, this phrase actually means, "a BIG eater." As in, the kid eats more food than a high school football team at a Friday night pizza buffet.

The kid's parents, of course, are obese, too -- a fact that overeducated health researchers will quickly point out in reaching the erroneous conclusion that "Obesity is genetic!" It must be the genes, see? All that pizza, soda, milk, cheese and candy has absolutely nothing to do with it, as the kid will handily tell you himself between mouthfuls.

Have you ever watched a sugar-addicted, diabetic American ten year old kid on Halloween? He feels as if he's won the candy lottery. He's as surprised as a corrupt politician who wins a reelection campaign. "You mean to tell me," he asks himself, "people just hand out candy for free? And you just walk around and collect all you want?"

It would be like a crack addict learning that crack grows on trees. Or like Donald Rumsfeld hearing forty-five countries simultaneously announce, "Please invade us. We want YOUR form of government for all our people!"

Sugar has this effect on children, which is why they are so good at manipulating their parents into giving it to them. Sugar, actually, is the drug of familial dysfunction and yet parents don't even think their kids are eating excessive amounts. "No more than the other kids eat," they'll proudly explain. Between mouthfuls.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
