    I posted a few studies in the past showing that rates for cancer, diabetes, and stroke have increased several-fold over the last decade, and mostly in young people. The official version peddled by the FDA of course is that we just keep getting healthier by the minute and life expectancy is rising relentlessly. Not sure how can anybody have confidence in predictions 50-70 years into the future, but I guess FDA knows he future better than any one of us.
    Breaking News: Colorectal Cancer Rates In Young People Have Doubled
    Stroke Rates Have Almost Doubled In Young Adults
    Rates Of Diabetes I And II Are Rapidly Rising In Young Children And Teens

    This study below adds more to the evidence for "improving" mental health of US citizen, and once again especially among young people. Keep in mind that these increases in depression occur on the background of record-high prescription rates of antidepressants (mostly of the SSRI kind) and many of those drugs are known to cause the very depression that they are supposed to treat. And to make matters worse, the real story is probably much worse considering that a large portion of people with depression do not get diagnosed or treated for it, so the figures below do not include them. At least the report does not shy away from pointing the finger at stress and lack of human contact as major reasons behind the depression epidemic.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/health/heal...on-rise-among-everyone-new-data-shows-n873146

    "...Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows. Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent."

    "...The findings are almost certainly an underestimate, as well. The Blue Cross Blue Shield data comes from 41 million health records and counts people who got a diagnosis of major depression. Many people who report symptoms of depression say they have not been diagnosed or sought treatment for it."

    "...“Many people are worried about how busy they are,” said Dr. Laurel Williams, chief of psychiatry at Texas Children’s Hospital. “There’s a lack of community. There’s the amount of time that we spend in front of screens and not in front of other people. If you don’t have a community to reach out to, then your hopelessness doesn’t have any place to go.”"

    Sick adults literally poisoning their kids and teaching them life through “smart” objects, political correctness etc. My gf is a teacher in Ontario and she’s mad about the current situation.

    Depression is actually a word without real meaning, behind which are hiding heavy metals, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, microwave radiation, etc constantly poisonning people.

    Also kids receive more and more vaccines and medications from a very young age.

    I guess nowadays, life itself has become a serious chronic disease .

    Young people now suffer from a lack of sunshine, high EMF exposure (and high body voltage), circadian rhythm disturbances, lack of exercise, overstimulation (especially porn use), a lack of protective compounds in the diet due to processing and poor food choice, harmful chemical exposure, acedemic and social stressors, harmful medication use (especially ADHD medication such as Adderall and SSRI's), food additives (titanium dioxide is an especially harmful one), high polyunsaturated fat consumption, and social isolation. In my experience it seems that young people claim to have depression more often than not. Depression rates in Hawaii indicate that a slight change in lifestyle and culture can have major benefits.

    Is this why Jordan Peterson talks about mythology so much and going on a life journey to have purpose ?

    This opportunity is not available to young people anymore

    Goes hand in hand with generation after generation of males having less testosterone, decreasing sperm quality and so forth, as was documented on this forum with articles and papers.
    The estrogen epidemy might simply be a reaction to those massive stressors and disrupters mentioned above. Estrogen would have its hormetic place in a healthy organism as part of defense and (re-)growth mechanisms but not as the prevalent dominant state

    Hawaii also has a significantly higher rate of drug use and prescription drug abuse than mainland America. I think that EMF exposure tends to be overblown as well, because the majority of the research on the subject indicates it bears an insignificant effect.

    What kind of changes have you made to get better? A new diet? Less stressful behavior?

    Hi sladerunner69: I did a lot of changes those past months. I eat Peat's diet: lots of milk, coffee. I upped my sugar intake.
    I think I should stop thyroïd even though my level is not optimal. I use cynoplus before bed and before cynomel like 1/2mcg during the day, I got adrenaline from it so I stopped. I am quite thin as well and I don't want the t3 to burn more fat.

    My main problem is my lifestyle, I am back to school, its very competitive and I feel very different from the people around me. I am alone lots of the time and I even feel better alone, apparently it can contribute to stress and helplessness which I do feel unfortunately.
    We have to do presentations in front of the others and then they criticize. My stress and anxiety is sky high during that moment and I don't do well.
    I already use progesterone and pregnenolone (50/70mg/day).
    I think I will start cyproheptadine, I surely have too much serotonin.
    What can you advise to relax? To perform and not worry?
