Processed food driving New Zealanders mad – psychologist

One in every eight NZ adults are on antidepressants

[But don’t blame it all on processed food. There are several other powerful underlying factors at play in New Zealand that the Canadian professor is clearly unaware of, or unwilling to admit. Moderator B.]


The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health | Julia Rucklidge | TEDx Christchurch

Processed foods with little nutritional value are making us sick and driving us mad, according to new research.

“Despite the advent of medications and other therapies over the last 50 years, the rates of mental illness have been on the rise rather than a decline. Over the last decade, scientists have been uncovering an uncomfortable truth: What we eat is affecting our mental health”, says Professor of Clinical Psychology Julia Rucklidge, who moved from Toronto to the University of Canterbury.

Rucklidge conducted a random controlled trial of adults with ADHD “which found that 64 per cent of those who received extra vitamins and minerals showed significantly fewer ADHD symptoms after eight weeks, compared with 37 per cent of those who received an inactive placebo”, says a report.

More remarkable was a study involving 91 Christchurch residents with high stress levels immediately after the February 2011 earthquake.

“Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder dropped from 65 per cent to 19 per cent among those who received extra vitamins and minerals, compared with a slight increase from 44 per cent to 48 per cent of a control group that did not get the supplements,” says the report.

“A lot of the food that may be given out is not food that is actually going to nourish the individual and sustain them in order to get through this,” she said.

“Our diet has changed so rapidly over 50 years that it’s hard not to believe that it’s having some impact on our mental health,” she said.

“My work shows that, because we show an impact of using vitamins and minerals on mental health, it simply proves the point that the diet these people are eating is simply not adequately meeting their nutritional needs.”

In contrast, the number of patients on Pharmac-funded antidepressants has risen from 8.4 per cent of all adults in 2006 to 12.7 per cent in 2015.

Stabbing spree female killer declared insane

Posted by te2ataria on March 22, 2016

That’s okay then!!

A woman who stabbed a 67-year-old man to death and injured four others in an attack at a Johnsonville house last year has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

In the High Court at Wellington today, Justice David Collins said that she was suffering from a “major mental illness” on the day, including paranoid delusions and hallucinations.

She also assaulted her doctor, believing he was evil and trying to poison her(!)

DAY 96 of latest TOURISTS or truth? campaign in NZ

What happened to the other 200 crashes over the past eight days???

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist will not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

About two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.] This week there’s been a near total news censorship…

Censorship, news blackout and disinformation are serious threats to democracy, even one as fake and dysfunctional as ours!

About 2.7 million licensed drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

[Heavily Doctored] Motor Vehicle Crashes in New Zealand 2014

  • 268 fatal road crashes
  • 295 deaths
  • 8,614 injury crashes
  • 11,219 people injured

In 2005 there were:

  • 405 deaths
  • 2,531 serious injuries
  • 11,920 less serious injuries

In 2002, according to the official data, there were:

  • 404 deaths
  • 5,200 hospitalisations
  • 14,000 injuries
  • 1.5 deaths per 10,000 vehicles
  • 10 deaths per 100,000 population
  • The cost to the taxpayers was more than $3.5 billion.

Based even on the government’s doctored data, there should be about 25 crashes today, resulting in 31 reportable injuries including 14 hospitalization (8 serious injuries) and at least one fatality.

  • Blog estimate: [About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year.] Most probably, up to 205 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016.

News in drips…

Many Happy Returns!!

Gastro bug hits 18 top judges: Of the 53 Supreme, Appeal and High Court justices who attended the Higher Courts Conference, stuffing their faces at Chateau Tongariro, on Friday, 18 were too sick to preside over court cases this week.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/78139736/Court-cases-cancelled-after-stomach-bug-hits-18-top-judges-during-Chateau-retreat

More than 3,400 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and recent emigrants have lost their lives and about 18,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

REMEMBER: Truth has an ugly habit of showing its face!
