The largest school district in Minnesota is considering screening students for depression and anxiety.
This most certainly means that countless more children and teens will be the subject of a parent teacher conference where the district's psychiatrist urges the prescription of an ADHD (or ADD) medication to improve concentration, focus or happiness of the student in question.
While the screenings are supposedly aimed at preventing more student suicides, the establishment fails to inform parents that many child and teen suicides are most likely the result of the same anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications that will be pushed following the new screenings.
WND reported that the screenings are the result of Obama's executive action on gun control following Sandy Hook. Many opponents argue that the goal is to document "mental illness" with as many students as possible, so to later be used as a flag to prevent gun ownership. Many call it a back door attack on the second amendment.
Even if you aren't concerned with the second amendment, you should be concerned about these drugs being forced upon children and teens across America.

Should Pharma Replace the Term “KOL”?
Pharmaguy interviews Sanjay Singhvi, Director, System Analytic, about KOL terminology and the research his company conducted around it with KOLs and pharmaceutical executives.
Topics/Questions discussed include:
Are pharmaceutical companies still using the term KOL?
Why the interest in changing the terminology?
Is this a divisive/controversial issue?
Is this a superficial change or reflective of something deeper?
What about "KOLs" themselves? What do they think?
How does all this affect vendors/service providers? E.g. What are they searching for in Google - still searching for "KOL Mapping"?!
Input, Solutions, Culture
Pharmaguy interviews Anne C. Beal, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer, Sanofi, and Melva T. Covington, MPH, MBA., PhD, Project Leader, Research and Develooment, Sanofi. They talk about their roles in bringing the patient perspective into Sanofi's work to advance Sanofi's ability to deliver health care solutions that matter most to patients and those who care for them.
Questions/Topics of Discussion
How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?
Will New FDA Guidelines Allow Pharma to Join In?
Pharmaguy interviews Peter Kirk, CEO & Sermo, who talks about the nature and value of physician discussions on Sermo and how pharma can engage docs on social media sites and online discussion boards.
Questions/Topics of Discussion
Tell us a bit about Sermo and the physician members.
Are physician members engaged in meaningful discussions on Sermo? What are they discussing? Jeff Tangney, CEO of Doximity, said most online physician discussions were mundane and not related to medical practice.
In the past Sermo has worked with pharma companies such as Pfizer to bring them into these discussions (see here). How did that work? Was it successful? What kinds of discussions do physicians on Sermo want to have with pharma?
In your opinion, what impact will the recent FDA guidelines have on how the pharmaceutical industry engages physicians on social media sites and discussion boards such as Sermo.
What value can pharma marketers gain from engaging in physician discussions via social media? What values can physicians gain?

Hello traders and welcome to my podcast today we are interviewing the CEO of Axxess Pharma, Inc. ticker axxe they have so much great things going on check out the last few PRs
Rick sounds off on the announcement that China will launch in September 2015 its alternative to the SWIFT bank wire system, Obama’s ammo ban, and Hillary’s illegal secret email account. In Part 2, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny tells Rick that Big Pharma’s allies are lobbying state legislatures to eliminate religious exemptions for vaccines.
The 4 leading causes of death in the United States are heart disease, cancer, medical doctors and pharmaceutical drugs (in that order). If all 4 could be eliminated it would save 22 ½ million lives in the US alone (looks like about 6% of the population each year). But how could this be done since heart disease and cancer are endemic in our culture? And don’t we need medical doctors, the medical community and big pharmaceutical companies to keep the disease monsters at bay. This mythology is explored and exposed as a fraud during this pod cast. In the second hour we present an amazing cure for all that ails you including heart disease and cancer. What is this magic cure? You will be surprised to find out that it is water. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbQOQIdri4Q

We have all seen the reports flying across social media about a new "cure" for HIV. As a person living with HIV and as an activist, these reports drive me crazy since they are sensationalized stories used for click-bait. Media outlets know that using a keyword such as "cure" will increase the amount of traffic to there sight and so forth. I for one think that we need to remove the word "cure" from our vocabulary completely. The current state of HIV research has shown that the more we learn about HIV, the more we learn that we do not know..
Everyone wants a "cure" however what is the current state of effrots in the United States to pressure law makers, big pharma and so on to actually push even further into "cure" research? When was the last time that you went to a rally for an "HIV Cure"?
It is my opinion that each one of us must hold the media and each other accountable for recklessly throwing the c-word around. Every time the word "cure" is used, it relays that this eipdemic is over. This epidemic will not be over until we have zero new-infection. This epidemic will not be over until we have zero mother-to-child transmission (a goal that we are close to reaching).
