Hour 1 – Big Pharma – Alive and Well!
BIG SALE! $9.7 Billion for a Year of Pharma Advertising! $1.8 Billion for Four Years of a President! Advertising Age, a magazine which bills itself as the “leading global source of news, intelligence and conversation for marketing and media communities” estimates the pharmaceutical industry spent $9.7 billion dollars in 2016 marketing their products, with the lion’s share, 55.7%, going to television advertising. (October 17, 2016) That’s $5.4 billion dollars of advertising on your television screens EVERY YEAR.
Today’s Moment of Duh!
The More Lavish the Gifts to Doctors, the Costlier the Drugs They Prescribe When drug companies give gifts to doctors, the doctors prescribe more — and more expensive — drugs. The more lavish the gifts, the greater the effect. Researchers used data from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services on the prescriptions written by doctors in Washington, and information from the D.C. Department of Health on gifts from pharmaceutical and medical device companies given to providers in 2013.
It’s Gut Check Time!
PTSD linked to changes in gut bacteria An exploratory study has identified a link between gut bacteria and post-traumatic stress disorder that could bring us closer to fathoming the mechanisms of the complex condition. The researchers, including a team from Stellenbosch University in South Africa, report their findings in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine. Previous studies have already pointed to several factors that might determine what makes people either susceptible or resilient to PTSD. These have highlighted genetic makeup and environmental factors such as living conditions and childhood experiences. Other have suggested that inadequate immune system control and inflammation may raise the risk of PTSD.
Healthy 90 Year-Olds Have The Same Gut Bacteria As 30 Year-Olds In one of the largest microbiota studies conducted in humans, scientists have shown a potential link between healthy aging and a healthy gut — finding that the overall microbiome composition of healthy elderly people was similar to that of people decades younger, and that the gut microbiota differed little between individuals from the ages of 30 to over 100. There are over 400 species of bacteria in your belly right now that can be the key to health or disease.
Trick or Treat?
“CBD candy” in the hands of kids is this year’s Halloween bogeyman Every year around this time, The Cannabist chronicles how THC became the new razor blade in your kid’s trick-or-treat pail. With Halloween 2017 right around the corner, it looks like there’s a new bogeyman, at least in some parts of the country: “CBD candy.” Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the non-psychoactive cannabis compound touted for its medicinal promise. In addition to the 29 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico that have legalized some forms of marijuana, 18 states allow use of CBD-rich products for medical purposes, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. CBD has recently become more widely available — it’s even in mainstream grocery chains — and it appears the cannabis compound is confounding state law enforcement agencies and news outlets.
Hour 2 – A Closer Look At Depression
October is National Depression Awareness Month The month of October is National Depression Awareness Month. Robin Williams was one of millions of Americans diagnosed with depression. The National Alliance of Mental Illness reports that an estimated 16 million American adults have experienced a depressive episode in the past year. Robin Williams once said, “the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy, because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.” There is a combination of symptoms that characterizes depression, including low mood, loss of positivity, feeling guilty or worthless, sleep disturbances, fatigue, lack of energy, changes in appetite, loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed, and thoughts of death or suicide.
Could treating depression worsen symptoms in the long run? When the data were analyzed, the findings were surprising. The team found that, compared with the group who received no treatment, symptom intensity was significantly higher in those who received inadequate treatment, adequate treatment, and treatment with or without medication. So, as far as symptom intensity was concerned, the no-treatment group fared best. Also, symptoms were worse following treatment that included medication versus treatment without medication.

Could Anger Be Good For You?
Sometimes, it’s GOOD to be angry, research says Very few people like to spend most of their time ticked off about something, but a growing body of research indicates that sometimes, just sometimes, getting really angry is actually good for you. As noted by NBC News, most everyone has experienced periods of blind rage — being so angry ‘you can’t see straight,’ as one old saying goes. The reason for that rage is varied: Political differences of opinion, the feeling of being slighted, getting insulted by someone, etc. And we know from past research that too much anger certainly isn’t good for you and can lead to all kinds of health issues like high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and even breathing problems.
