Children who experience severe trauma are three times more likely to suffer from schizophrenia when they grow up, a new study suggests.
And the more severe the childhood trauma, the greater the risk of developing the mental illness, which affects people's emotional responses and ability to think logically, and in some cases, causes serious hallucinations.
"The causes of psychotic disorders, particularly schizophrenia, are a source of controversy amongst psychiatrists, psychologists and doctors. There is also disagreement about how the disorders are defined. It's not unusual, for example, for a patient to be diagnosed with schizophrenia by one psychiatrist, but as bipolar by another," co-author Richard Bentall said.
In a provocative new peer-reviewed study published in Clinical Epigenetics, researchers led by a former FDA toxicologist purport to have found a very real link between HFCS consumption and autism.
The study’s argument is complicated but deeply disturbing. It pieces together what’s known about the genetic and metabolic factors involved with autism, including the growing evidence of a link between autism and mercury and organophosphate pesticide exposure.
Essentially, HFCS can interfere with the body’s uptake of certain dietary minerals — namely zinc. And that, when combined with other mineral deficiencies common among Americans, can cause susceptible individuals to develop autism.
It just seemed so convenient, and a detail.
No one thought details added up.
Signs of a decaying time.
