Dead and drugs

Did you know…..

Many people die each year because of their addiction to drugs, tobacco and alcohol?

Cocaine, heroin, amphetamines, etc., take many lives each year.

In recent years the use of cocaine has increased a lot in our country. Cocaine can lead to death, as it frequently produces strokes and myocardial infarction. To this must be added deaths due to overdoses and adulterations.

Unfortunately many people who use drugs do not quite believe the dangers of drugs.
In Spain there have been numerous anti-drug programs, but unfortunately the drug is easy to acquire in our country and in many others.

Surrealist Revolution

Did you know…..

That in 1925 a group of French artists and writers signed a “manifesto” in the name of what they called the “surrealist revolution“?

This manifesto of the group of surrealist artists and writers addressed to the directors of psychiatric hospitals in France. Among other things they wrote the following:

Tomorrow, at the time of the visit, when you try, without the help of your lexicon, to communicate with these men, you can remember and recognize that you only have a superiority over them: strength.”

The voice was raised by the inhuman conditions in which the mentally ill lived in the insane asylums of that time.

Philippe Pinel, the eminent French doctor, removed the chains to the madmen of the Bicêtre asylum in the eighteenth century. In this and other asylums it was usual to keep the mentally ill tied with chains.

Anxiety and Obesity

Did you know…..

Some people try to calm their anxiety by overeating and compulsively?

The increase in the intake of foods has led to a large increase in the weight of the inhabitants of many developed countries. What has been called obesity epidemic causes a serious risk to health. It is shown that obese people have an average life ten years less than people who have a normal weight.

We can affirm that people who eat healthy and avoid sedentary lifestyle have a weight appropriate. In some countries more than half of the population weighs more than their share.

The increase in the average weight of the inhabitants of some countries has tripled with respect to the average weight of 30 years ago. Even in countries where in the past there was no overweight or obesity, such as Japan and Korea, the average has also increased.

From this page we encourage you to lead a more active lifestyle and take a healthier diet, both adults, young people.
We also want to warn of the danger of certain diet to lose weight that can put in serious risk the health.

Tobacco and Alcohol Consumption

Did you know…..

that the number of people who smoke has decreased in many western countries?

It is thought that this decrease is due to the campaigns carried out against smoking by many countries. The disclosure of the serious health damage caused by the tobacco has been one of the factors that have helped in this fight against smoking.
Limitations on tobacco advertising have also contributed to the decrease in tobacco consumption. For example, in countries such as the United States of America and Canada, tobacco consumption has drastically decreased. According to statistical data, in 1965, 42% of the adult inhabitants of these countries were addicted to tobacco. But, according to the latest statistics, currently only 16% smoke regularly.

On the other hand, has the consumption of alcohol also decreased?

Regarding the consumption of alcoholic beverages there is no uniformity; while in some countries there has been a decline, in others it has increased. For example, such would be the case in Ireland and the United Kingdom, where the increase in alcoholism has been even greater among young people.

The tobacco and the consumption of alcohol cause serious diseases and a great sanitary cost in the different countries. In addition, in the case of alcohol we must add the influence it has on traffic accidents.

Depressed people

Did you know…..

That in Depression is there a tendency to negative thinking, as the result of excessive abstraction and generalization?

Depressed people generalize negative events, and this leads to pessimistic anticipations and a great despair about the future. Depressed people think very negatively about themselves and the events that occur in their lives.

These patiens also do not have specific goals for their lives. They tend to think of abstract personal goals.

Several studies have also found that depressed adolescents have nonspecific personal goals, unlike adolescents who do not suffer from depression. But some studies have also shown that depressed young people can make up specific personal goals after conducting a successful psychotherapy treatment. In young people with depression, motivation, commitment and effort to achieve personal goals are very poor.

Pregnancy and Antipsychotic drugs

Did you know…..

Taking antipsychotic drugs during pregnancy can produce a syndrome of withdrawal in the newborn?

This syndrome of withdrawal in the newborn occurs when a woman takes antipsychotic medication during the third trimester of her pregnancy.

In this syndrome the newborn baby has severe dystonia, akathisia (inability to sit still or sit), tremor, bradykinesia (slowness of movement) and stiffness. These extrapyramidal effects are due to the antipsychotic medication taken by the mother.

The Pharmacovigilance Working Party (PhVWP) of the European Union Medicines Agency advises that doctors assess case by case the medication to be prescribed throughout pregnancy.

Post-holiday syndrome

Post-holiday syndrome. Truth or lie? Myth or reality?

Now that summer has ended and nearly one hundred percent of the people who work have been incorporated into their jobs, it turns to talk of the post-holiday syndrome, as often happens almost every year. But experts have not accepted the existence of so-called Post-holiday syndrome.
Regarding this syndrome, we have seen statistics that say 5% of the population suffers it, and others stated that up to 35% of the population has this disorder. And even without blinking, they listed a long series of symptoms such as poor concentration, irritability, sadness, fatigue, apathy, and so on, as manifestations of this syndrome.
We have been witnessing in recent years of the creation of multiple and diverse diseases, which are not such, they are only simple human reactions to certain situations.
