CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.ECT sends up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain, inducing a grand mal seizure that can cause brain damage, memory loss and death. This means psychiatrists can electroshock anyone, including children and the elderly for any disorder with impunity.”— Jan Eastgate, president of the international mental health watchdog CCHRCLEARWATER, FL, UNITED STATES, February 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recent Final Order on Electroshock Treatment (ECT) devices—reducing their high-risk classification—will enable unbridled use of a device never proven safe and effective.

POLITICS 11/15/2018 10:54 am ET The Louisiana Republican dismissed Trump's tweets raging at special counsel Robert Mueller as "talk." By Jenna Amatulli Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) dodged questions on CNN’s “New Day” about whether he’d support legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, but offered quite the zing at President Donald Trump in the process. Host Alisyn Camerota on Thursday probed Kennedy on Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-Ariz.) statement a day earlier that he will not vote to confirm any more Trump judicial nominees until a bill to protect Mueller and his investigation receives a vote in the Senate. Kennedy said he hopes Mueller isn’t fired, and said he knows of nothing suggesting Trump will give Mueller the boot. “People up here like to talk. You’ve got to watch what they do.

ENVIRONMENT 10/24/2018 02:00 pm ET Updated 3 minutes ago For pregnant women, there is no safe level of exposure to organophosphate pesticides. By Alexander C. Kaufman The entire family of widely used pesticides known as organophosphates causes brain damage in children even at low levels of exposure ― and should be phased out. That’s the finding of a first-of-its-kind paper, published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS Medicine, that examined all the existing scientific literature on a class of chemicals that has for decades served as the main ingredient in farmers’ pest killers. The results are staggering. The eight researchers who authored the paper found there is no safe level of exposure to any organophosphate pesticide for pregnant women, whose babies suffer disorders ranging from impaired mental and motor skills and memory loss to autism and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. “We’re very concerned that we’re … [Read more...] about Bombshell New Study Calls For Ban On Pesticide Family Tied To Brain Damage In Kids
POLITICS 10/01/2018 11:54 am ET The Trump administration is reportedly taking steps to significantly weaken the 2011 Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule. By Dominique Mosbergen The Trump administration is taking steps to significantly weaken a major Obama-era regulation that curbs the amount of mercury that power plants are allowed to emit, according to multiple reports. The Environmental Protection Agency has sent a legal proposal to the White House that would hobble the 2011 Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule, reported The Washington Post on Monday, quoting two senior administration officials who have reviewed the document. The proposal would not completely eliminate MATS, which sets limits on power plant emissions of mercury and other toxic pollutants. But it is “designed to put in place the legal justification for the Trump administration to weaken it and several other pollution rules,” and could open the door to a possible full … [Read more...] about Mercury Can Cause Brain Damage In Kids.
