(NaturalNews) Psychiatric doctors in Canada are now claiming that psychiatric drugs
promote weight loss! Yep, the weight loss gimmick has now been invoked by the psychiatric industry, which is grasping for more ridiculous reasons to put more kids and teenagers on their dangerous prescription medications.
The twisted thinking goes like this: ADHD makes kids eat too much, causing obesity. ADHD is a brain chemistry imbalance, they explain. Therefore, doping kids with mind-altering psych drugs will cause them to lose weight. (I'm not making this up. This is an accurate re-statement of the position of the psych doctors.)
A clinical trial run by psych doctors showed that kids actually lose weight on the psych drugs. Well no wonder: They're on speed!
(ADHD drugs are, in reality, just brand-name amphetamine drugs.)
Methamphetamines make you lose weight, too, but that doesn't mean we should run around putting kids on meth, does it?

Doctors Roizen and Oz now recommend irradiated food
The more famous they get, it seems, the more wisdom they lose. Doctors Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz are now recommending irradiated food
In an article published in the Houston Chronicle, authors Roizen and Oz explain, "Don't be afraid of irradiated food. We believe this process, which kills disease-causing pathogens, makes meat, poultry, eggs, vegetables and fruit safer."
And that statement makes these two doctors the poster children for what I call really bad thinking
. Do they not consider the chemical byproducts
of irradiation in food
? Did they forget about the fact that irradiation destroys nutrients
My guess is that Roizen and Oz have joined the "culture of death" camp which believes that dead food equals safe food. These "culture of death" people include USDA decision makers, FDA chemical pushers, state health
authorities and most conventional medical doctors. To date, there is not a single person at the USDA or FDA who has gone on the public record stating that LIVE food is any different from DEAD food.
All food is supposed to be dead, they insist, because then it's "safe."

U.S. medical doctors participated in torture of secret CIA prisoners
Speaking of really poor judgment on the part of health authorities, the International Committee of the Red Cross
has issued a report revealing that U.S. medical officers overseeing the torture of prisoners in secret CIA prisons were essentially participating in torture themselves.
That, apparently, is no stretch for conventional medical doctors, since they're all too happy to put people on chemotherapy drugs
and radiation treatments -- which amount to "for-profit torture" right here in the USA. Apparently, the medical oath of "first, do no harm" is taken by doctors with their fingers crossed behind their backs.
As one medical officer was quoted saying to a CIA prisoner: "I look after your body only because we need you for information."
In U.S. hospitals, it's slightly different: They look after your body only because they need you for your insurance money.
And they don't get paid if you die, so they keep you (barely) alive as long as possible while milking your insurance for the maximum payouts. If you start to die, they go "heroic" on your body to extract the maximum insurance money payouts during your last 24 hours of life.
It is no coincidence that once your insurance runs out, most medical treatments mysteriously cease.
