Causes Of Depression


Welcome to another edition of Health Buzz. Health Buzz is where we discuss the most interesting health information and events around the Internet.

--Let's start with the vegetarianism and meat buzz. This one comes from Quansan52: "Praying and giving thanks may psychologically give one peace of mind but will not escape the Universal Law of Karma. So when one consumes the meat, will also bear the bad energy of fear , hate and anger of the animals' suffering. So one wonders why one can wake up one day feeling lousy or depressed for no apparent reason."

--Physical diseases buzz: "Whatever that comes in contact with our cells that is not a nutrient, through the cumulative effect, will eventually result in the disease of those cells. When our cells are diseased, we are diseased." From prokopton.

--On big business buzz, like Big Pharma. "We have a corpocracy. As long as business has more political power than the people, democracy is sick and you have to expect injustice as a result." From Richard Stallman, open source software advocate.

So, if big businesses are so powerful, how can we make a difference in the political decision making process? Here's an interesting fact on U.S. politics: Every email, fax, or phone call to your Congress counts as 13,000 constituents. That's because for every 1 person who sends an email, fax or makes a phone call, 12,999 don't do anything. Isn't that a good way to make your voice heard about an issue you care about?

--Organic food and GMO (genetically modified organism) buzz: When you buy USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) labelled organic food, it could contain GMO (Genetically modified organisms) because the USDA's definition of organic food is that any food that contains less than 5% GMO. Time for private labels...

--2012 end of an era buzz. This year, 2011, we will experience 4 unusual dates.... 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 .... NOW go figure this out.... take the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year and it WILL EQUAL TO 111. Just do the math :) THIS WORKS FOR EVERY PERSON ON THE PLANET! Oneness preceding 2012?

-- The Diet Coke and chewing gum buzz. Coke and chewing gum are just two of many products which contain aspartame..."Aspartame was known to cause cancer from the beginning. On August 1, 1985 FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that at least one of Searle's studies "has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors..." Article title is Study Proves Aspartame Lung And Liver Cancer. From

?--The Coffee buzz: "That kick in alertness we get from our first coffee or tea in the
morning is in fact just the removal of the fatiguing effects of caffeine withdrawal, which occurred from overnight abstinence," Rogers said. ...The finding suggests caffeine only brings coffee drinkers back up their normal baseline level or alertness

--The junk food buzz. You know, chips, chocolates, soda pop, crackers and so on: The article was titled: Addicted rats 'starved themselves' rather than give up junk food. In a laboratory setting, rats were fed junk food over a period of several weeks. They found that the fat rats became so hooked on junk food that when researchers took away the bad stuff and replaced it with healthy food, the rodents chose to starve themselves. Apparently, the junk food releases the same pleasure hormones as hard drugs, such as cocaine.

--The depression buzz: "Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, simply surrounded by assholes." From science fiction writer William Gibson
