CCHR Condemns FDA’S Approval of Electricity-Zapping for “ADHD” Kids

CCHR Condemns FDA’S Approval of Electricity-Zapping for “ADHD” Kids

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a device to zap a low-level electrical pulse through the forehead of 7-12 year olds as treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a device to zap a low-level electrical pulse through the forehead of 7-12 year olds as treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). [1] But the mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), says that unsatisfied with the drugging of millions of children with mind-altering drugs associated with mania, psychosis, suicide and even death, psychiatrists have now turned to the FDA to approve a device that electro-shocks children into docility. This is yet another harmful psychiatric electricity-based practice being passed off as “therapy,” misleading parents into thinking their child will be “safe” undergoing it, CCHR says.

The Monarch eTNS System device costs around $1,000, according to CNN. A patch placed on the forehead uses a 9-volt lithium battery stimulation that creates a “tingling sensation” on the skin between the eyebrows. [2] Jan Eastgate, president of CCHR International says, “This latest practice of zapping a lack of focus sends a wrong message to children. Psychiatrists want them to believe that electricity pulsing through their brain while they sleep will help control impulsive behavior, despite no clinical study proving their behavior is a neurobiological condition.”

Recently, the FDA also cleared the usage of electroshock treatment—up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain—for adolescents aged 13 and above with “bipolar” disorder. Yet the FDA admits that it does not regulate medicine and therefore, how psychiatrists administer electroshock—a free-for-all license for committing “mental euthanasia” on any child, Eastgate adds. She called on people to sign CCHR’s petition to ban ECT

Freedom of Information requests CCHR filed in seven U.S. states reveal that psychiatrists are electroshocking kids aged five and younger.

Psychiatrists admit they don’t know how ECT “works.” Nor are there clinical studies proving safety and efficacy of ECT devices. Likewise, the exact mechanism of the Monarch eTNS System and its long-term effects is unknown. [3]

As Forbes pointed out: “There are nearly a dozen neurostimulation devices on the market that claim to improve cognitive function by allowing you to zap your brain with a small electrical current. But just because you can now do this at home doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. ECT uses electrical current in the range of 600-1000 milliamps…But you’re welcome to zap your brain with a much lighter touch of roughly 1-2 milliamps from the comfort of your couch for anywhere between $99 and $800 dollars. That is, if you don’t mind leaving the state of your brain up to chance.” [4]

The marketing hype fed parents for this new device is likely to go something like this: The “zapping” ADHD device is a “noninvasive treatment” and less risky that cocaine-like amphetamines or stimulants currently prescribed to treat “ADHD.” This avoids drug side effects like anorexia, poor growth and cardiovascular problems.

Jessica Baron, writing in Forbes noted, “While it’s true that the [neurostimulation] electrodes don’t penetrate your head, they must produce enough current to reach the brain in order to have any effect at all. Calling these products ‘noninvasive’ is merely a marketing technique and a misleading one if you ask me.” [5]

Researchers do not understand the effects of long-term use of brain stimulation, but say that no brain region exists in isolation. Modulating one brain area may impact on other areas. [6]

Nick J. Davis Ph.D. from the Department of Psychology, Swansea University, UK, explains that because the brain continues to develop until the age of 20, stimulation in children and adolescents would have a stronger impact.

Davis said there is evidence that enhancing one aspect of cognition may be detrimental to other cognitive faculties. “There is also the worrying possibility that electrical stimulation of the skull may induce or inhibit bone growth, an issue of particular importance in children whose cranial bones are not yet fused. This latter possibility has not been explored in human volunteers in brain stimulation experiments,” Davis wrote in 2014. [7]

Davis pleaded for “calm and caution” when opting for stimulation device use in children because serious effects of transcranial stimulation include seizure, mood changes or induction of hyper- or hypo-mania.

“For years, FDA has ignored the practice of psychiatrists electroshocking 0-5 year olds,” Eastgate said. Carlos Peña, Ph.D., Director, Division of Neurological and Physical Medicine Devices Office of Device Evaluation Center for Devices and Radiological Health, claims: “This new device offers a safe, non-drug option for treatment of ADHD in pediatric patients. He also fronted for the FDA when it reduced the risk classification of the brain-damaging ECT device, stating it was safe and effective, while not providing clinical trials from the manufacturers as evidence. Further, Peña was part of an FDA hearing in 2014 investigating the practice of aversive conditioning electrical devices to modify undesirable behavior. [8] In that case, FDA recommended a ban on a device used at the Judge Rotenberg Center in Massachusetts that zaps special-needs residents with an electric shock machine that delivers charges of up to 41 milliamps – 10 times the amperage used in most stun guns – to the body via electrodes on the skin. [9] To date, the FDA has not removed the device from the market. [10]

CCHR says ongoing dangerous decisions by the FDA warrant a Congressional investigation.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Electroconvulsive “Therapy” —The Facts about ECT

Anti-Semitism and Oppression with Holocaust Survivor Dr. Alex Hershaft

Let’s be clear; I am not equating the Holocaust and human life with the millions of animals slaughtered every week for U.S. dinner tables.”

— Dr. Alex Hershaft

WASHINGTON DC, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Holocaust Memorial Day on the Jewish calendar is this Thursday, May 2; in the wake of yet another deadly synagogue shooting, talk to Warsaw Ghetto survivor and leading animal rights activist Dr. Alex Hershaft about anti-semitism and animal rights, and what he sees as the undeniable link between the two

Alex is the President of Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) and a co-founder of both FARM and the worldwide movement for animal rights. He holds the very controversial view that equates the Jewish holocaust with what he calls “the brutal slaughter of animals in hellish conditions every day….just like concentration camps.”

Hershaft knows about deadly anti-semitism firsthand; his childhood was spent under brutal Nazi control, walled into the infamous Warsaw Ghetto (made famous in the movie “The Pianist”). Many of Alex's family members including his father died in Nazi work camps. On April 19th, 1943, the Warsaw Ghetto staged a desperate uprising that lasted several weeks. That date is observed throughout the world as Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year, it falls this Thursday, May 2nd according to the Jewish calendar.

Moving to America and becoming a U.S. citizen after World War II, Alex worked for many years in materials science and environmental consulting and received a work assignment to a Midwest slaughterhouse in the 1970s. He immediately saw parallels between the death camp extermination and animal slaughter, including “mass roundups, skin branding, transport by cattle cars, crowding in wood stalls, brutality and the dispassionate application of mass extermination.” It caused him to flash back to what he saw during the Holocaust and changed his life’s mission forever-Alex became a vegan and eventually one of the founders of the U.S. animal rights movement.

Dr. Hershalft knows that making the controversial comparison between the Holocaust and animal slaughterhouses may rub people the wrong way.

“Let’s be clear; I am not equating the Holocaust and human life with the millions of animals slaughtered every week for U.S. dinner tables. But I am saying that all sentient beings, animals and people, share a love of life and the ability to experience emotions, including affection, joy, sadness, and fear. And far too often, these animals, with faces, families, and feelings, are treated just as badly as Holocaust victims.”

ABOUT DR. ALEX HERSHAFT

Born in Warsaw, Poland shortly before World War II began, Alex survived Nazi persecution and sought refuge in the US, where he held a long career in materials science and environmental consulting and a prominent role in the movement for religious freedom, prior to dedicating himself to animals. Alex organized the first Animal Rights National Conferences, World Day for Farmed Animals, Meatout, and a dozen other initiatives – and was inducted to the Animal Rights and Vegetarian Halls of Fame.

As a child, Alex Hershaft was held in captivity by the Nazis in Poland’s Warsaw Ghetto and witnessed first-hand dozens of brutal beatings, senseless shootings and people dropping dead of typhus and hunger in the streets. Young Alex was finally smuggled out of the ghetto and survived the Holocaust…but most of his family did not. His father died following internment in a German slave labor camp.

His life forever shaped by what he experienced as a child, Dr. Hershaft is now one of the godfathers of the worldwide animal rights movement, and the co-founder of Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM). He sees huge parallels in the Holocaust and animal rights and says “for millions of animals, especially those raised in these huge, cruel industrial farms and slaughterhouses, every day is like being in a death camp."

Still very active in the animal rights movement, Dr. Hershaft recently participated in a protest to block trucks jammed full of pigs from entering a slaughterhouse in Smithfield, Virginia and his findings were horrific. During a 24-hour period, over 6,000 pigs were stunned by electrical shock, hoisted up by their hind legs and have their throats slit open."You could literally hear the pigs crying in the trucks on their way to slaughter. This was just one event, in one day, but things like this and much worse happen every day all over the world. The similarities to what I saw as a child of the Holocaust are stark. As a survivor, I am honor-bound to call public attention to this ongoing tragedy.”

Abraham Kiswani set to hit record fundraising total

Abraham Kiswani

Abraham Kiswani

Philanthropist and businessman Abraham Kiswani looks forward to setting a record total as this year's contributions get off to an unprecedented start.

BURBANK, ILLINOIS, USA, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Well known and highly respected for his philanthropic nature and wider charitable efforts, security industry professional Abraham Kiswani and his business look set to reach a record donation and fundraising total in 2019 as the year gets off to a fantastic start. Here, Chicago-based Kiswani reveals more about his support for charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, and the Tuskegee NEXT project, as well as his commitment to other local good causes and initiatives.

Having raised many tens of thousands of dollars for charities and organizations including Toys for Tots, the Tuskegee NEXT project, St. Baldrick's, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in recent years, philanthropist Abraham Kiswani looks set to reach a record-breaking new total this year after donating more than $200,000 in 2018.

"Through fundraising, events, and donations made by myself and my company, we're looking to top last year's total in 2019," reveals Kiswani, who has already pledged significant sums of money to several of his preferred charities, nonprofit organizations, and other good causes this year. He currently estimates that this year's total could top $225,000.

Last month, Abraham Kiswani also announced details of the upcoming First Annual Beat Cancer Charity Basketball Showdown to be held in Chicago. Set to take place on Saturday, June 22, 2019, and billed as 'one of the best basketball showdowns the area has ever witnessed,' all proceeds from the event will be donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

One of Kiswani's most eagerly supported causes, the research hospital is closely tied to childhood cancer charity the St. Baldrick's Foundation, with which the businessman and philanthropist is also heavily involved.

Indeed, he and his company have donated annually to the charitable organization since 2012. Donations made by Kiswani and his firm solely to St. Baldrick's now exceed $35,000, he reveals. "Much like all of the good causes which I proudly support, St. Baldrick's is an incredible organization," he explains, "and entirely worthy of all the help and support that we can give."

A passionate sportsman, this year, Kiswani is also organizing a number of Major League Baseball tickets to generously gift to local disadvantaged children and those from low-income families. "We'll also continue to donate to Chicago's South Side churches to help feed the hungry and to further put back into the local community," adds the certified security sector professional, businessman, and philanthropist, wrapping up.

A graduate of Alan B. Shepard High School in Palos Heights, Illinois, Abraham Kiswani is today based in nearby Burbank, around 15 miles southwest of Chicago. Outside of his work and charitable efforts, Kiswani's personal interests include skydiving, bungee jumping, and antique muscle cars, as well as cooking, movie memorabilia collecting, sailing, scuba diving, and softball.

AWOL-GayTravel Award Winner

We strive to honor the LGBTQ community and to bring people together, which is why it is so gratifying to have three of our hotels in the Lark Collection recognized by the GayTravel Awards”

— Rob Blood, CEO of Lark Hotels

Barry Hers explains HASA application process and additional benefits

Barry Hers

Native New Yorker Barry Hers offers expert insight into the city's HIV/AIDS Services Administration, its programs, and its additional benefits.

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, USA, April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — HASA, or the HIV/AIDS Services Administration, is a New York City initiative established in 1985 in recognition of the additional or special needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, particularly in regards to accessing and maintaining their government benefits. A supporter of the organization and its work for more than two decades, property investors and real estate professional Barry Hers reveals more about HASA's processes and the additional benefits of its ever-growing roster of programs.

"Since its inception, HASA has had several names," explains Hers, whose offices are based in Brooklyn, "including the Division of AIDS Services and the Division of AIDS Services and Income Support."

Exclusive to New York City residents, HASA's full benefits package includes intensive case management, housing assistance, and nutrition and transportation allowances. "In the wider state of New York as a whole," adds Hers, "eligible beneficiaries are entitled to apply for certain, more limited benefits, including enhanced rent allowance, although the full HASA package is only available in New York City itself."

Currently, the program is administered by the New York City Human Resources Administration. "Many HASA recipients in New York City are eligible for the program's full array of benefits," Hers explains, "although other individuals may apply for many of the same benefits on an individual basis, including Medicaid and SNAP, for example."

"Within HASA, funding for these benefits remains the same as for any other eligible individual living in the United States," Hers continues, "although for benefits which are specific to HASA and its programs, New York City funds are used exclusively."

To seek full HASA benefits, applicants must be a resident of New York City. They may also be required to meet further eligibility criteria surrounding citizenship and their financial situation, for example, according to Barry Hers. "All applicants deemed eligible for HASA must also submit medical verification of their HIV/AIDS diagnosis," he adds, "and cooperate fully with finger imaging and various other requirements."

The New York City Human Resources Administration authorizes each HASA case for a total of 12 months. Once this period has ended, it's necessary to resubmit for the program, in order to ensure that eligibility requirements remain met.

Further to the benefits outlined above, successful HASA applicants are also granted access to mental health and substance abuse screening, treatment referrals, and employment and vocational services. "Additional benefits under HASA," Barry Hers adds, wrapping up, "also include scatter site and congregate housing, and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program."
