We know it's a complicated issue with many different aspects to be considered. However, if we look at the amount of antidepressant drugs being prescribed and the amount of violence committed, it does seem to get worse. This very interesting article sheds some light on what might be going on.
The author writes, "Mania with psychosis is the extreme end of a stimulant continuum that often begins with lesser degrees of insomnia, nervousness, anxiety, hyperactivity and irritability and then progresses toward more severe agitation, aggression, and varying degrees of mania."
He then further explains that, "These adverse drug effects - including agitation, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, akathisia, and impulsivity - are an obvious prescription for violence." Akathisia is a psychomotor agitation that is strongly associated with violence.
What could be going on? Why are we seeing these violent acts? When public agencies have difficult children and young adults to deal with, they automatically turn to psychiatric diagnosing and drugging. Previously concerned adult authorities then withdraw their concern and attention because the child or adult is getting “psychiatric treatment.” Caring, emphatic and effective psycho-social treatments fall by the wayside. Authorities do this without grasping that they are shoving the child under a suffocating chemical rug in the form of neurotoxins that blunt all emotions and stifle all behavior.

Great weekend harvest. All organic and home-grown. Grapefruit is a mouth-wateringly tart tasting citrus fruit with a hint of sweetness, somewhere between a lemon and an orange.

Grapefruits are packed with the benefits derived from various nutrients and vitamins. This powerful nutrient combination of fiber, potassium (which is important for the make-up of cell and body fluids and in controlling the heart rate and blood pressure), lycopene, vitamin A & C, choline, folate, thiamin, vitamin B6, calcium, and magnesium, as well as lesser amounts of many more phytonutrients all here to help maintaining a healthy heart.
Some studies show that eating this amazing citrus fruit can lower the risk of developing kidney stones. Limonin, which is another phytonutrient, showed to suppress cancerous cell and tumor growth. The pectin in grapefruits inhibits hardening of the arteries and lowers the LDL or "bad" cholesterol.
NOTE: Please consume grapefruit in moderation because they do contain fructose, which may be harmful to your health in excessive amounts.
CAUTION: Drinking grapefruit juice together with certain medicines may, in certain cases, increase blood levels of the drug to harmful levels. Please discuss with your doctor if you're on medication. Grapefruit juice inhibits a chemical in the intestine needed to break down many drugs in the body.
