    Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain

    in Family

    Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol?  Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs.  People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction. 
    KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

    Back Pain Be-Gone! Without Drugs Or Surgery - Beverly Nadler will expain.


    Back pain, especially low back pain, is the most common health-related condition in the US and around the world.  It is estimated that 8 out of 10 people will suffer back pain sometime during their lifetime.  The costs associated with low back pain in the US exceed $100 billion per year, two-thirds of which are the result of lost wages and reduced productivity.


    Most people take powerful drugs with bad side effects to reduce their pain. Some patients undergo dangerous surgical procedures. Join us today for a very important show with our Health Guru, Beverly Nadler.  She will tell you about a number of effective natural therapies that not only reduce or eliminate back pain, they also help your body heal and prevent future episodes.

    Psychotropic drugs: How to stunt a child's developing brain

    in Psychology

    Join us this evening as Fred Shaw speaks about the drugging of America's children.  With a focus on foster children who are helpless to refuse deadly medications, the drugging of children across the country has reached epidemic proportions. 


    Psychiatrists have created the perfect crime:  Invent disorders to suit the pharmaceuticals being manufactured then label a child or even an adult with the fictional disorders.  The drugs are virtually untested.  No one knows for sure what they will do to the individual child.  What we do know is that these drugs can cause life-long injuries such as tremors, headaches, muscle damage and the shrinking of the frontal cortex of the brain. 


    While the term "foster care stare" describes the immediate effects of these toxic medications, no one seems willing to discuss the permanent damage including suicidal and homicidal thinking, aggression, violence and violent mood swings associated with them. 


    This show is produced in coordination with the Citizen's council On Human Rights

    Where is the outrage over deaths from Legal Drugs?

    in Health

    Drugs: A huge amount of Americans use them. Chances are you have some in your medicine cabinet in your bathroom. Most drugs used in the U.S. today are legal, while some are illegal.


    Unfortunately, the picture of drugs portrayed by the mainstream media is very biased and one-sided, and not well understood by most Americans. So I want to present as much factual information here as possible, information you are not likely to read in the mainstream media since they themselves are very much funded and influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.


    There are More Deaths from Legal Drugs than Illegal Drugs

    Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain: Effects on LGBT Youth

    in Family

    1. What percentage of Americans smoke on a daily basis? 20 percent, one in five.


    2. What percentage of American high school students use tobacco? 20 percent, more than one in five, 5% of middle school students smoke.


    3. How many adult Americans have used an illegal drug at some point in their lives?: a) 70,000 b) 700,000 c) 7,000,000 d) 70,000,000 Answer: d


    4. Can drug use modify your brain? Yes.


    5. True or false: Nicotine is NOT an addictive substance. False


    6. How can alcohol abuse affect memory loss and dementia? Alcohol abuse can lead to or increase both.


    EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”


    2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.

    Attorney Allison Folmar: Refusing deadly drugs is not medical neglect

    in Family

    These shows are conducted in coordination with Citizens Council on Human Rights (CCHR)


    Attorney Allison Folmar has been an Attorney for 15 years in the State of Michigan. While in law school Allison received an Award of Excellence in the field of juvenile law.


    Earlier years:


    From 1988-1994 Allison was a Corrections Officer for the State of Michigan Department of Corrections and then went on to become a Probations Officer. Allison assisted in restructuring the Federal mandated Interstate Contact Agreement whereby people on probation and parole are handled so as not to fall through the cracks.


    On the day Maryanne Godboldo’s story broke. Attorney Allison Folmar was in her car listening to the radio. She heard about the police stand off and her first thought was: “This woman is protecting her child from being drugged and they’re gonna take her baby? “Oh, no they’re not!”


    The next day Allison took on the case pro bono.


    And so began her 10 month battle on behalf of Maryanne Godboldo and her daughter.


    She fought and won two legal battles on the fundamental premise that charging a parent with medical neglect for refusing to give their child a deadly drug is not only a complete oxymoron but a violation of the law.
