Harmful consumption of alcohol accounts for higher proportion of deaths worldwide than HIV/AIDS, violence, tuberculosis combined, OECD reports

Harmful consumption of alcohol accounts for higher proportion of deaths worldwide than HIV/AIDS, violence, tuberculosis combined, OECD reports

PARIS (AP) – Alcohol consumption in wealthy, developed countries has declined over the past two decades, but dangerous binge drinking increased among the young, according to a new study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The 34-nation OECD, which advises governments on policies for economic growth, says that average annual alcohol consumption in its member countries fell 2.5 per cent over the past 20 years, to 9.1 litres of pure alcohol per capita. More...


Why MDMA May One Day Be Used In Couples TherapyMDMA

Huffington Post – In recent years, the psychoactive drug MDMA has piqued the interest of psychologists, who are investigating whether it could be beneficial in treating mental health problems. A new study, which finds that the drug can facilitate introspection and help people to feel closer to their loved ones, further suggests this may be the case.

Known by the scientific name 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine and sold on the street (often with dangerous additives) under the names Molly and ecstasy, MDMA is known to evoke feelings of intimacy and compassion. More...

Slot Machines Perfected Addiction and Now Tech Companies Want In

thefix.com - Capitalism can hijack the drive to pay and play for better or worse, but likely for worse.

Flipping through Facebook photos, swiping across Tinder, an alert, a like, a friend request, all produce within us a little flash of reward, one that’s fleeting and therefore maddeningly addictive. More...

Cannabis indicaMedical News Today - Although the use of cannabis as a medical drug is currently booming (Dtsch Arztebl Int 2012; 109: 495-501), we should not forget that leisure time consumption--for example, smoking weed--can cause acute and chronic harms.

These include panic attacks, impaired coordination of movement, and nausea, as Eva Hoch and colleagues show in a topical review article in Deutsches Ärzteblatt International (Dtsch Arztebl Int 2015; 112: 271-8).

The symptoms depend on a patient's age, the amount of the drug consumed, and the frequency of drug use. It also matters in which form the cannabis is consumed--for example, as a joint, bong, or hash cake. More...

White Boy Rick Is Still In Jail

Why is this man still in prison when murderers, rapists, drug kingpins and even the corrupt cops and drug dealers that he helped to put away are out?


thefix.com - The story of Richard Wershe Jr., aka the infamous White Boy Rick, is convoluted to say the least. But the facts of the case that remain true are that he has been in jail since 1988 for a nonviolent drug offense committed while he was still a juvenile. Convicted under Michigan’s 650 Lifer Law, which has since been repealed, he is the only person still imprisoned under the old law. And everyone keeps asking: Why is this man still in prison when murderers, rapists, drug kingpins and even the corrupt cops and drug dealers that he helped to put away are out? More...

This Is The Top-Selling Drug In America
refinery29.com - You might be a surprised to find out the best-selling pharmaceutical drug isn't something like Lipitor or Prozac. Nope, it's actually the antipsychotic drug Abilify. And, there's now a generic version.

As an atypical antipsychotic drug, Abilify (a.k.a. aripiprazole) works on both dopamine and serotonin receptors. It's often prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and — alongside other medications — depression. Abilify also has "orphan drug" status for the treatment of childhood Tourette's. More...

1. First off, how did you get into radio? What attracted you to the medium?

I was a little kid who had CHUM on my radio all day and under my pillow at night growing up! All of my heroes were deejays on CHUM, and I was determined I was going to be one! Never did work at CHUM Toronto, although I was with the company off and on over 20 years in other Canadian markets. I got into radio at the University of Waterloo and the rest is history, I guess.

2. Your current radio gig is hosting "People Helping People," a show about addictions on CFRB every week, which you started way back in the CKLW days -- in recovery, you've become a certified addiction counselor and you're using it on the air. What compelled you to take your personal experiences and use them to help others in this manner? What drives you to pay it forward, in a manner of speaking?  More...
