Latest Health Threat to Teens

From where? From the marketing geniuses/fiends of the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex.

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal, "Special Age, Special Doctor," threatens a whole new medical specialty, with its inflated "risks," probably new diagnoses, both physical and mental, and vastly increased pushing of prescription drugs.

The assumptions for teens here? (1) The body is stupid. (2) There are all kinds of terrible threats out there. (3) Medicine has the answer to everything. (4) The more testing, diagnosing, treating, drugging... the healthier??? Or... the sicker???

The new "Adolescent Health" issues?

Acne. Well, Medicine's last big drug for acne, Accutane, ended up causing all kinds of damage, including Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Crohn's Disease. That will make a teen's life better, huh?

Tatoos and piercings: Risk of hepatitis. I guess that they don't really believe that their vaccinations work

Sports Injury: They recommend a back exam. Now that is funny! What does a pediatrician or teen-pediatrician knows about the spine?

Mental Disorders: A great deal of this is caused, or at least exacerbated, by pediatricians who prescribe anti-depressants to children as young as two years old. With their developing brain chemistry so perverted, by the time they are five or six, they are so wacky that they are then diagnosed as "bi-polar," and are given anti-psychotics. Then there's all the ADHD drugs, which are different forms of "speed."

When I was growing up, there were no teen pediatricians, and hardly and regular pediatricians. Amazing that we survived, isn't it?

Use your head, Parents! The more Medicine, including the latest fads*, that your teen gets, the sicker he or she will be.

Use your head. Get their nervous system checked. Like everyone else at every age, they need chiropractic care too.

* Yes, even in Marin, parents can be fooled by medical fads, disguised as "the latest," or "advances," or even "breakthroughs."
