Loneliness: The cost of the 'last taboo' - BBC News
There are an estimated 1.2 million people in the UK who have "chronic" loneliness, with links to poorer physical and mental health and increased use of GPs, hospitals and social services.
The campaign says it should be seen as a problem in public health terms, like obesity and smoking.
For a decade of an older person's life, the extra economic cost of loneliness is calculated as £6,000. [...] "Everyone's on their phones, they're closed off."

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic
Psychologically, however, they are more vulnerable than Millennials were: Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones. [...] You might expect that teens spend so much time in these new spaces because it makes them happy, but most data suggest that it does not. [...] Teens who spend more time than average on screen activities are more likely to be unhappy, and those who spend more time than average on nonscreen activities are more likely to be happy. There’s not a single exception. All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. // &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40840823 - Children consuming online time 'like junk food'

(297) Wer glücklich ist kauft nicht - Vortrag Prof. Hüther - YouTube
Denkmuster. Schwer heraus zu brechen! Kein kind komt als konsumer zur welt. Nacheifern wer erflogreich erscheint. Grunderfahrung Wachstum. Neugier. Dopamine. Entdecken und Gestalten und Frei sein. Plus Bindungssystem. Aber Welterfahrung ist anders als im Bauch der Mutter. Beziehungsschmerzen gibt es! Begeisterung, und emotionen helfen beim lernen! Frei und Autonom ungleisch die Schule. Wem es gut geht kauft kein schrott den er nicht braucht um andere menschen zu beindrucken die er nicht mag oder kennt.

instant gratification robs you of happiness, that results from putting in the work, being considered, mindful, thoughtful. effort can be the most rewarding thing in life. the pleasure of work. reward comes from hard work. --- a selfless life can bring much more pleasure than selfish life. we are social creatures. the only thing you've got to keep are your thoughts, emotions and health (well being, fitness)

Why too much choice is stressing us out | Life and style | The Guardian
From jeans to dating partners and TV subscriptions to schools, we think the more choices we have the better. But too many options create anxiety and leave us less satisfied. Could one answer lie in a return to the state monopolies of old?

Mindfulness has huge health potential – but McMindfulness is no panacea | Jon Kabat-Zinn | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ you own only your thoughts, emotions and health (fitness) ] [ you have to function ] Mindfulness is often misunderstood – so let us be clear about what we are encouraging. In essence, mindfulness – being about attention, awareness, relationality, and caring – is a universal human capacity akin to our capacity for language acquisition. It is a way of being in wise and purposeful relationship with one’s experience, both inwardly and outwardly, with oneself and with others. Thus there is an intrinsic social dimension to its cultivation as well. It usually involves cultivating familiarity and intimacy with aspects of everyday experience that we often take for granted.

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

More patients in Scotland given antidepressants - BBC News
814,181 patients in 2014/15. Since 2009/10, use of antidepressants has increased by 28.5%. Two-thirds of the patients given the drugs were women, with use peaking in the 50-54 age group. The figures indicated antidepressant use was associated with deprivation. They recorded 225,969 patients in the poorest parts of Scotland receiving the drugs, compared with 110,507 in the least deprived areas. The total cost of antidepressants to the NHS in Scotland was £40.8m. The use of lower-cost drugs means this figure has fallen by one-third over the past 10 years. [...] "We are now looking at the flabbergasting statistic of more than one in seven people in Scotland being prescribed antidepressants this year. [...] "The fact that we have seen such substantial increases in prescriptions raises real concerns over whether this reflects shortages in other services, //&! bit.ly/1GJ9ouW - doubling in 10 years from 10 to 20 million daily doses for NHS Grampian [...] without other forms of treatment.

Sex Hormones Administered During Sex Reassignment Change Brain Chemistry, Physical Characteristics
while male-to-female transsexuals who received a testosterone blocker and estrogen showed decreased levels of SERT in the brain. SERT plays a significant role in treating mood and anxiety disorders. Many common antidepressants (including Prozac) block its activity by inhibiting serotonin reuptake. Also, some studies have suggested that having a higher level of SERT could increase resistance to stress, and lower the risk of stress and mood disorders. Currently, women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression as men, so the changes in SERT levels associated with the blocking of testosterone are consistent with increased risk of mood and anxiety disorders in females compared to males.

BBC One - Panorama, The Truth about Pills and Pregnancy
http://www.spiegel.de/gesundheit/schwangerschaft/schwangerschaft-antiepileptika-beeintraechtigen-entwicklung-des-kindes-a-911989.html + Decades after the Thalidomide scandal shocked the world, Panorama reveals how another medicine has damaged far more children. Drugs cannot be tested on pregnant women for ethical reasons, so doctors do not know if most prescription drugs are safe for the unborn child, and the system set up to monitor side-effects appears to be flawed. As evidence emerges that some common antidepressants are linked to heart defects in babies, the programme asks how much we really know about the safety of medicines women take while pregnant. >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_valproate >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thalidomide - up to 20000 may be harmed by Epilim in UK. 1000 by Thalidomide in UK. >> http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2010/nov/08/epilim-anti-epilepsy-drug >> some medicine 'seem' not safe for childbearing women. ie antidepressants.
