People Taking Antidepressants After The Age of 60 Are ‘THREE TIMES More Likely To Get Dementia Because They May Cause Nerve Damage’

My disclaimer: I am NOT opposed to doctor-prescribed medications to treat mental health issues, in spite of the fact I do occasionally post content that is critical of such medications or of psychology or psychiatry. I am not opposed to the mental health profession, nor against medications, but, I am also not supportive of a view that any and all mental health treatments work for everyone.


People taking antidepressants after the age of 60 are ‘THREE TIMES more likely to get dementia because they may cause nerve damage’

June 2019

People taking antidepressants in middle or old age could have triple the risk of developing dementia, a study has found.

Antidepressants may damage or kill crucial nerve cells in the brain, researchers claimed in a study of more than 71,000 people.

Rates of dementia were found to be 3.4 times higher among people who took thedepression drugs after the age of 60.

• How Male Supremacy Led to Murder by S. Hendrix

The following article is about Scott Paul Beierle, who hated women, and who one day walked into a Florida yoga studio and shot several women – at least two of whom died.

How Male Supermacy Led to Murder

by Steve Hendrix, June 2019

Snippets:

…His name was actually Scott Paul Beierle, a 40-year-old former FSU graduate student who had driven 250 miles for a yoga class in the town where he had twice been arrested for groping female students and banned from campus.

Beierle was an avowed hater of women, a man who repeatedly grabbed women in real life and fantasized about raping and killing them in the horrific collection of lyrics, poetry and novels he began writing as a teenager.

His interactions with the opposite sex had gotten him fired from teaching jobs, booted from the Army and hauled before the principal of his high school.

He traced his fury at women — “Just beneath their blushing lashes and their innocent smiles lies the most rancid and putrid, sickening essences” — to the girls who both aroused and frustrated him in eighth grade.

D-Day’s Forgotten Woman by Cal Thomas

Oh, complementarians and other sexists won’t like this. They don’t like real-life and biblical examples of women who don’t live live the way they think women should live life. Examples like these are so inconvenient to their worldview and prejudices.

Without the daring and heroism of Virginia Hall, the war might have been prolonged

by Cal Thomas
June 5, 2018

Observances of the 75th anniversary of D-Day are properly focusing on the troops and the architect of Operation Overlord, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who freed Europe from Hitler and his Nazi hordes.

One person — a woman — has not received the credit she deserves for her efforts with the French Resistance. Without her daring and heroism, the war would most assuredly have been prolonged and many more lives would have been lost.

Her name was Virginia Hall and her story is told in a new book by Sonia Purnell titled “A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II.” The title does not exaggerate Virginia’s contributions to the Allied victory.

• Blocked From Using My Daisy Twitter Account (June 2019)

Well, this is annoying

Twitter locked me out of my Twitter account about two days ago.

Without warning I was just quickly locked out, and taken to a page that says, “We have detected unusual activity on your account, so we are locking it down.”

I think their page said this is a temporary situation?

I was using my account as I always do – just RTing interesting articles, I commented on someone else’s Tweets.

Shortly before I was booted off, I did send two links to internet sexist Matt Walsh – maybe he reported me for harassment, and that is what got me blocked?

How Photoshop Artists Turn Undercover Facebook Cops Into 14-Year-Old Girls

by T Brewster, May 2019

Police departments across America are turning to Photoshop artists to transform undercover cops into fake teenage boys and girls so they can snare child predators on Facebook and other major platforms.

…. A forensic art

Sources from the policing community tell Forbes that it’s not fancy software that carries out the age regression—it’s in-house forensic artists using old tools like Photoshop.

Sports Gear Designed for Women’s Bodies—Not Stereotypes

Women, We Have A Problem by L. Steele

From sneakers to space suits, most gear is still designed for men’s bodies – and women are irked. How to avoid brands that just ‘shrink it and pink it’ and find bikes, kicks and backpacks that fit you right

May 2019

When it comes to sports gear and apparel, women don’t always get what they want – and they rarely get what they need, which in the worst cases can lead to life-affecting injuries.

In an essay published by the Guardian in March, cyclist Hannah Dines detailed her experience having to undergo surgery after years riding bike saddles that didn’t properly pressure-map her groin led to chronic inflammation and long-term trauma.

She had just trained through the pain. While men can comfortably straddle most bike seats, she wrote, “female cyclists sit right on the money.”

Feeding A Family Isn’t A Job For Mothers Alone

In an era of processed food, wholesome home cooking is more important than ever – and men need to share that burden

May 2019

… For too long, women have been fed the idea that the task of feeding children is all on them. This does not always work out well, for either mother or child.

… I somehow got it in my head that the job of feeding the children was all mine. It is still too easy for the mother to become the only one who plans the meals, shops for ingredients, schelps them home, lovingly cooks them and watches anxiously for a child’s reaction to his or her first taste of something new.

No wonder many families in the modern world opt for convenience foods instead. As the food writer Deb Perelman observed, “There are many good reasons to never cook at home.”

Only now that it is ceasing to be norm for mothers to stand laboriously stirring a pot can we appreciate just how much we owe to the heroically thankless, everyday cooking of our own mothers.
