IMAGINE for a moment that you woke up tomorrow to the news that the entire retail #alcohol supply in the #US was randomly contaminated with deadly levels of #fentanyl. A one ounce shot could put you into respiratory arrest in 120 seconds, quickly followed by cardiac arrest.

The proper administration of #NARCAN within minutes or #RescueBreathing is your only hope for survival; #911 and #EMS can’t get there that fast.

Now IMAGINE for a moment what the governmental and civil society response would be to this news...

THREAD: Troubled by many media reports & SM conversations where depression + mental health issues are assumed to be only causes of #suicide
Of course, we need conversations on #Mentalhealth & depression is associated with suicide. Why am I then bothered by this? Read on..1/n
In the West, studies show that ~ 80% of suicides have depression as a predisposing cause. Also in West, suicides peak is mostly older ppl (>60 yrs) + male:ratio is ~ 4: 1.
However India's suicide epidemology is different. In India, only ~50% have some mental illness...2/n
Also our peak suicides are in age group of 18-39 yrs + male:female ratio is ~ 1.5:1. So a lot of young Indian women dying of suicides.1 out of 3 women dying of suicide 🌍 are Indian. For women in this age group, suicides is No 1 cause of death, ahead of maternal mortality..3/n

World Economic Forum: "Lockdown is the world's biggest #psychological #experiment - & we will pay the price"

Apr 9 2020 "With some 2.6 billion people around the world in some kind of #lockdown, we are conducting arguably the largest psychological experiment ever"

#Conditioning
"Unfortunately, we already have a good idea of its results. In late Feb 2020, right before EU countries mandated various forms of lockdowns, The Lancet published a review of 24 studies documenting the #psychological impact of quarantine."

#Handy
"The findings offer a glimpse of what is brewing in hundreds of millions of households around the world...

people who are #quarantined are very likely to develop a wide range of symptoms of #psychological #stress and #disorder..."

True.

But there must be strict licensing standards. Drugs are as dangerous as guns. #marijuana, like #alcohol, can be abused & should not be used by young people. Studies show problems w/ mental health and developing minds - and early use of THC supercharged 420. @JaneParkerMC
2/

In addition a number of entries into the marijuana game are people who couldn’t pass a basic background check. Forget the workers as the lobbyists have tried to portray it but the owners and other various sketchy entities that have risen up to enter the “legal” framework.
3/

If the USA 🇺🇸 is to take a serious position in #corruption and the harm it does to #Democracy - then we need to have rigorous standards and tough regulations over this industry. My county and the largest county in @RepJimmyPanetta’s District is awash in public corruption.

#Finland's lawmakers adopted the UN convention on drugs as-is in 1971. Harry Anslingers #racist legacy reached these northern shores one vote past the bar.

Ever since #Cannabis has been the #media evil, where #alcohol kills thousands yearly.

#cannabis #denial #doublestandard
#Finland's local media has been working hard lately.

The local papers in co-operation with associations like #YAD have been generating lot of articles on how #cannabis is somehow responsible for #polydrug-use, or #abuse of drugs among #young people.

#Alcohol never mentioned. 😅
Meanwhile, Statistics #Finland's numbers on kids reveal, that 44% of finnish 14 to 16 year-olds use #alcohol.

This is never mentioned in any of the papers writing #exploitation and #scare stories on #cannabis.

Neither are the other abused #drugs: rx #medication, #amphetamines.

Es increíble, pero sigo viendo tuits que muestran un gran desconocimiento sobre lo que es un Trastorno en el Espectro Autista, el #autismo.
Así que en lo que queda de abril voy a hacer un hilo de 100 tuits sobre TEA #TEA100

(Cada día, después de los aplausos de las 20:00)
La idea es hablar de #autismo en todas las redes sociales en las que participo. Aquí os explico un poco como lo haré neuropediatra.org/2020/04/15/tea…

1/#TEA100
Me propongo tres objetivos:
✅ ayudar a conocer el #autismo y así mejorar la detección
✅ comprender el trastorno
✅ favorecer la inclusión

Este es el 5to hilo que escribo sobre el sistema de salud de #Cuba, con fotos, videos y datos.
Quiero hablar por los cubanos que en Cuba sufren a diario la carencia de medicamentos, de agua y de una buena atención en un hospital decente.
(Los otros 4 hilos están al final de este)
Ahora hay más cubanos que pierden el miedo a filmar y a tirar fotos en los hospitales. Por eso estamos viendo en estos tiempos lo que nunca se había visto, lo que era conocido sólo por los cubanos: el sistema de salud es un desastre.
Baño del hospital general de Placetas, #Cuba:
Hogar de ancianos Juan Le Font, municipio Cerro, #LaHabana.
Observen las condiciones de los enfermos y la cantidad de camas en la misma habitación. En los #hospitales de #Cuba no hay privacidad.

Men need to pay more attention to their health.

#DYK - some diseases affect men more than women:

Trends in GHB‐related harms 2012‐2018 in Victoria
Spoiler alert, 147% rise
Highlights here->
What we did: looked at ambulance callouts for #GHB alone vs for co-use w other drugs (eg. #methamphetamine, #alcohol)
What we found: Overall #GHB presentations increased 147%, peaking in 2017 at 1339 callouts. This increase was largely driven by #GHB+#methamphetamine use together
#methamphetamine #ice co-use was >6x more likely to result in ambulance callouts than co-use with other drugs e.g. alcohol; and more #mentalhealth symptoms e.g. psychosis or anxiety.

Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Starting June 1, I will tweet a chapter each day from my new book goodreasons.info about how the light of evolutionary biology can dissolve the mists that swirl around mental disorders. Well, some mists for some disorders. @DuttonBooks @hbes2019 @LondonEvolution @ISEMPH
From the Preface: I wanted to write this book as soon as I realized that evolution could explain why bodies are vulnerable to disease. But the rest of medicine had to come first. Why We Get Sick stirred lots of interest. The new book is about why mental illness exists at all.
For each chapter I address the question, "So what?" Saying what is true changes only views unless it also changes what people do. Mental health clinicians who understand evolution do their work differently and better. For all others, self-understanding is valuable in itself.

Today, @DrMcCance_Katz shares California data compared to national data on prevalence of substance use disorder and mental health issues at the 2019 CMHACY conference.
SAMHSA will focus on nation no longer just on grantees.
56.8M Americans have a mental or substance use disorder in the country.
California looks very similar to the nation.

As a cancer researcher & science communicator, I have very mixed feelings on proposed #alcohol cancer labelling for drinks. I'll try here to elucidate why, and you can tell me whether you agree or not (1/n)
...so firstly, is alcohol a carcinogen? Almost undoubtedly, yes. IARC grade it a class 1 carcinogen, alongside asbestos, ionizing radiation, & smoking. We even know some mechanisms of damage. So labels should be a no-brainer, right? (2/n)
...well not quite. The real question isn't just whether something causes cancer (oxygen, processed meat, and sunlight are also Class 1 carcinogens for example) but how much it increases our risk of getting cancer. We need both bits of information to make a call (3/n)
