A pro-science marxist who is labeled with Autism and ADHD. Psychiatry is a psuedoscientific tool of oppression mostly used by the bourgeoisie and we should oppose it!

Currently also dealing with silent reflux.

What if they don’t have that much RAM?

I bet they wouldn’t do the same for George Floyd protests.

Oh, yeah I agree with you lmao. I’d wait for better sources too.

I hate that shit so much; it’s gate keeping the use of scientific infornation to the capitalists and labour aristocrats.

Even sci-hub and oadoi doesn’t always have the study.

What’s depressing is that capitalism is gonna ruin it.

in a world where people are struggling to afford housing and food money made them happier

Also known as western capitalism.

Then what really is ADHD and autism?

Symptomatic labels. That’s all they are.

Where do these symptoms come from?

There can be many causes (these aren’t all of them either):

  • Bad diets.
    • Over-consumption of sugar.
    • Chronic ingestion of seed oils.[1][2]
  • Trauma
  • Psychiatric drugs

Some medical causes:

  • Infections (as in, all pathogens that actually impact a patient)
    • Mycotoxosis
  • Vitamin Deficiencies
  • Flare ups from the immune system.
    • Microglia getting triggered.[3][4] (Of course the cited studies try to imply that suppression of microglia activity “improves depression.” It’s pathetic lmao.)
  • Genetic Disorders
  • Gut dysbiosis.

There are many conditions that can induce particular hypersensitviities:

  • Some hypersensitivities can be induced by certain antibodies.[5]

The Serotonin Zombie: Authors of New Study Try to Breathe New Life into the Dead
> The researchers then ran a bunch of additional statistical tests on this same data (tests to include other factors, such as age, and then breaking the data down into specific regions and re-running the tests—a controversial statistical process known as p-hacking because it increases the likelihood of finding a statistically significant result by chance). Even after all this, the researchers found that the depression group and the healthy control group continued to have serotonin levels which were no different, except for one slight average difference in one brain region (the temporal cortex). Even in this area, the data shows an almost complete overlap between the two groups. > The researchers, as they reported their results, ignored this fact. Instead, they calculated the mean change in serotonin release scores for the 20 healthy controls and 16 depressed patients, and concluded that there was a slight “statistically significant” difference (p value = .041). Without the one outlier, this statistically significant finding would have vanished. > ## Study Biases > The study was published in Biological Psychiatry and was led by David Erritzoe at Imperial College, London. Several other researchers unaffiliated with the study quickly pointed out several flaws in the study, starting with the fact that it was quite tiny, which increases the likelihood that any finding is due to chance. In a Twitter thread, researcher Eiko Fried compared the study to a presidential poll. Would you trust a poll of 37 people (31 male) to estimate who is most likely to win a presidential election? There is a reason polls try to reach a quorum of several thousand and a representative sample of the whole population. > > In addition, 14 of the 17 in the depression group—and 17 of the 20 in the health control group—were male. The inclusion of only three women in the depression group (though women are more likely to be diagnosed with depression), the inclusion of five people with Parkinson’s disease (which could create a different neurobiological effect), the inclusion of two people taking a drug for Parkinson’s (which could create larger brain chemistry changes), and the fact that antidepressants had been used by six people in the past (which could have led to long-lasting brain adaptations) are all significant confounding factors. > It is also worth noting that study was paid for by [Imanova Ltd (now Invicro)](https://www.bioindustry.org/member/imanova-ltd.html#:~:text=Imanova%20Limited%20%2D%20a%20centre%20of,Kings%20College%20and%20University%20College.), whose profit is dependent on demonstrating the success of imaging techniques, such as PET, for “drug and diagnostic development.” In an acknowledgment, the researchers express appreciation for the work of the company’s employees “for their excellent technical support.” It is unclear how much input the company had in developing the study, conducting the analysis, and writing the paper. Bad science at its finest folks.

No Brain Connectivity Differences Between Autism, ADHD, and “Typical Development”
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/585028 > > Neuroscience researchers find no differences in brain connectivity between children with diagnoses of autism, ADHD, and those with no diagnoses. > > This shouldn't be surprising at all. Psychiatrists literally made the labels up and asserted it was scientifically formed.

seems like it might be a relevant data point to consider.

It is.

Prozac, and many psychiatric drugs, are known to cause general health issues, including aggression. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/nation/2019/09/12/prozac-makers-secret-payment-mass-shooting-lawsuit-revealed/2302888001/

Psychiatric drugs mess up the homeostasis of the brain;[1] so it’s no surprise that the brain responds this way.

However, since some drugs are known to cause mental side effects

A lot of psychiatric drugs have side effects, the side effects are common, and those side effects aren’t just mental.[2]

They can definitely be caused by psychiatric drugs; that’s for sure.

Awesome site and convenient for quickly sharing studies!

And what’s the issue with those characterisations

Nothing. The problem is that anxiety disorders are subjectively given and do not have falsifiable phenomena.

They are also very reductionist; anxiety is an important emotion and it is very rational to be anxious when dealing with uncertain issues (like getting food poisoning). Anxiety helps to motivate to take action.

Given that the symptoms of intense anxiety or panic in themselves ought to have biological phenomenon behind them

Ought to have is not the same as proven to have (through disproving a null hypothesis); and anxiety disorders are not based on scientific research; but instead assertions.

if we’re going by a physicalist-realism perspective of the human mind and body?

what’s physical-realism?

None of the DSM editions had ever been scientific lmao. > "our understanding of the biology of mental disorders has been slow in coming." There's no biology in mental disorders; *none of them* have objective phenomena and they are arbitrarily given and created.

Why Psychiatry Isn't Scientific (For Laymen)
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/520880 > It's pretty simple to figure once I had a change in perspective; I really wish I figured this out earlier.

I feel like so little studies actually have the reproduction step.
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/514928 > Reproducibility is an important aspect of science; reproducibility allows for alternate viewpoints; improvements in the referrant study; and verification that the referrant study is actually possible. > > It could just be my perspective when reading studies; but I'm not seeing much scientists actively attempt to reproduce the result of the referrant study. > > EDIT: or I'm just not seeing it somehow.

How any one could think Psychiatry is a science is beyond me; especially when reading the DSM.

Why is incest so controversially demonized?
I searched up how many generations of incest would it take to destroy a family, and got that it would take thousands of generations to do so. Maybe my research is wrong…
