SSRI Drugs Linked to Germanwings Kamikaze Crash? posted 03/27/2015, 5:28 PM (Infowars)
[Category: Health]
Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who deliberately crashed a plane with 150 people onboard, had undergone psychiatric treatment, a fact that should prompt questions about whether the 28-year-old had been taking SSRI drugs which have been linked to numerous cases of mass murder and suicides.

“Lubitz had spent 18 months overall under psychiatric treatment, Bild reported on Friday, citing anonymous sources within Lufthansa, Germanwings' parent company. The pilot was diagnosed with a “severe depressive episode” in 2009, the German daily says. It claims it got access to Lubitz's profile, indicating the pilot had "psychological problems" and required a “special, exemplary regular medical examination,”reports RT.

Lubitz was also going through a personal crisis after breaking up with his girlfriend having previously taken a six month break from flight training due to “burnout-syndrome” or “depression”.

During a search of Lubitz’ apartment, German police also announced that they had discovered a “significant clue” that might help to determine why Lubitz deliberately crashed the Airbus A320. Authorities said that the item was not a suicide note.

“We have found something which will now be taken for tests,” Markus Niesczery from Dusseldorf Police told the Daily Mail. “We cannot say what it is at the moment, but it may be a very significant clue to what has happened.”

In addition, it has subsequently emerged that Lubitz had made an effort to conceal and unspecified medical condition from his employers.

“Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors,” said the prosecutors’ office in Dusseldorf, where the pilot lived and where the flight from Barc

The company said on Tuesday that the report, issued on Friday by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), was biased and contradicts regulatory findings that the ingredient, glyphosate, is safe when used as labeled.

The Aftermath of Daylight Saving Time posted 03/18/2015, 10:42 AM (Dr. Mercola)

Daylight Saving Time (DST), the practice of moving clocks ahead one hour in the summer months and returning them back an hour in the winter, was first implemented by Germany during World War I, as a way to conserve electricity.

The idea, however, dates back to William Willett, an Englishman who campaigned for “summer time” in the early 1900s so that people would have more time to be out in the sunlight – though the British government was not interested.
