Raising awareness of the need for men and boys to live healthy lifestyles is critical to their wellbeing.

Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports women are 100% more likely to visit their doctor for annual exams and preventative services than men.

Report cards on the status of male health in each state can be found at the State of Men's Health website. Proclamations from every state be found at www.MensHealthMonth.com

“We applaud officials in their states for helping raise awareness of the health issues facing men and their families by recognizing this year’s men’s health awareness period,” said Ana Fadich, MPH, CHES, Vice President, Men’s Health Network, “communities around the globe continue to promote the health and well-being of men and boys throughout the month of June. We hope this year’s awareness period will help men and their families be more mindful of their health starting with a doctor’s appointment.”

Across the country, hundreds of health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based organizations, community groups, and other interested organizations help plan activities and events that focus on men’s health during June, and throughout the year. On June 15, MHN encourages participation in using the #ShowUsYourBlue hashtag on social media where participants raised awareness about men’s health issues by Wearing BLUE.

This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of National Men’s Health Week, as part of the larger awareness period of Men’s Health Month. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Bob Dole and Congressman Bill Richardson and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994.

Reichen Kuhl to Speak at Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce

Reichen Kuhl

PLAYA DEL REY, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reichen Kuhl is a frequent volunteer, activist, and sponsor of many international organizations for peace and justice. A vanguard for the LGBT rights community, he has been invited to speak at the Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce later this fall.

As a Graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and a nine-year Air Force veteran, Reichen Kuhl spent nearly a decade demonstrating his passion for just causes. Since serving, he’s become a flight instructor, an attorney member of the State Bar of California, an LGBT published author, and the founder and CEO of LeaseLock, a company revolutionizing residential apartment leasing across the United States.

Reichen Kuhl is often recognized for his goodwill and determination for equality––serving in the Air Force, speaking on behalf of PETA, championing gay rights and more. Because of this, he was invited to speak at the Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce in September.

“The Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce is making strides by linking together professionals with the same hopes and vision for the future of gay rights,” says Reichen Kuhl. “I’m proud to be asked to speak at the September event and eager to facilitate a productive conversation with attendees.”

The Sacramento Rainbow Chamber Business Exchange Network (SACBEN) is an opportunity for members to mingle and increase business opportunities in an open and welcoming forum. During their meetings, each member presents a 30-second introduction, which helps them to craft a better elevator pitch and simultaneously share a little bit about themselves. While it isn’t required, SACBEN also invites their members to make periodic 10-minute presentations to the group during meetings to start conversations and share useful information.

As a whole, the Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce is a regional chamber of commerce that serves gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender business owners (as well as other professionals and allies) who operate in the seven-county Greater Sacramento region. The mission of the chamber is to encourage and support small businesses in the LGBT and allied communities, to foster economic prosperity in the Greater Sacramento region, and to promote diversity, inclusion, and equality for all. They achieve this through business networking, professional development, business certifications, and more.

As with other chambers of commerce, the Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce provides services, gatherings, and programming to help member businesses grow and find success. The organization hosts monthly networking mixers, educational and professional development workshops, government contracting opportunities, and partnerships with other organizations. The Chamber also helps build relationships with other diversity organizations and supports policies and laws that promote LGBT equality.

“The Sacramento Chamber is one of six LGBT chambers in the state working to increase equality and create opportunities for professionals in the community,” says Reichen Kuhl. “It’s an honor to be asked to present to our members.”

Reichen Kuhl is formerly known as Reichen Lehmkuhl, whereas he and other members of his family shortened their last name to “Kuhl” in 2014.

Publication of Jason Schenker's Book The Dumpster Fire Election

Jason Schenker has released a new nonpartisan book about the coming 2020 U.S. presidential election

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prestige Economics is excited to announce the publication of Jason Schenker's nonpartisan book about the 2020 presidential election, The Dumpster Fire Election.

The full title of the book is The Dumpster Fire Election: Realistic Dystopian Expectations for the 2020 Presidential Election and it was released on 26 June 2019, just in time for the first Democratic primary debates.

In this nonpartisan book, Schenker examines the nature of polarized partisan politics, weaponized social media, and risks of foreign interference, as well as the primacy of digital print capitalism for fostering subnational identity. The book also includes Schenker's original research and extensive analysis of economic, financial market, and business cycle dynamics related to presidential elections.

"I wrote The Dumpster Fire Election to help people prepare for the potential impact of the coming U.S. election. After all, U.S. presidential elections are important for the economy and financial markets," noted Jason Schenker, who is the President of Prestige Economics and Chairman of The Futurist institute.

"Even though people talk about elections, it is very difficult to find in-depth, objective, quantitative analysis of election data. Doing this kind of analysis is something I previously did in my books Electing Recession (2016) and Midterm Economics (2018)," noted Schenker."Now, going into 2020, the rhetoric is likely to be dialed up even further. In an era of clickbait, fake news, biased reporting on both ends of the political spectrum, and over-democratization of opinion that makes anyone (or any entity) on social media a full-on media pundit, there is a greater need than ever for actual analysis. There is a need to look at numbers and trendlines that go beyond the headlines. These topics are core elements of The Dumpster Fire Election."

The paperback edition of The Dumpster Fire Election was released by Prestige Professional Publishing on 26 June 2019. It is Jason Schenker's 18th book.

The Dumpster Fire Election can be found online at www.dumpsterfireelection.com

CCHR Says Federal and State Investigations Needed into Soaring Psychotropic Drug Use, Suicides and Violence

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

CCHR campaign launched to educate law enforcement, policy makers and school officials about violence- and suicide-inducing drug risks

CCHR campaign launched to educate law enforcement, policy makers and school officials about violence- and suicide-inducing drug risks

Researchers took the FDA ADR data and identified 25 psychotropic drugs that are disproportionately associated with violence.

Researchers took the FDA ADR data and identified 25 psychotropic drugs that are disproportionately associated with violence.

Of 409 psychiatric drug agency warnings, 49 warn of self-harm, suicidal ideation, 27 warn of violence, mania, psychosis, hostility and homicidal ideation.

Preventing suicides and acts of mass violence must include the recognition of how psychotropic drugs can drive a person to hurt themselves or others.”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FL, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the wake of recent reports of suicide increases, the mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) urges Congress and state governments to implement greater oversight of soaring psychotropic drug prescribing and their links to suicide and acts of violence. Where a death is categorized as a suicide, the group urges that it be registered whether the person was taking or withdrawing from psychotropic drugs at the time, as they can induce suicidal and violent behavior.

The group was responding to a Harvard Medical School study published in JAMA in June 2019, which found the rate of suicide among 15- to 24-year-olds climbed in 2017 to its highest point according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report. The Harvard researchers pointed out, “The research had some limitations, including that the causes of death in the data were based on death certificates, which can be subject to error.” [1]

CCHR recommends that in all suicides there should blood tests for psychotropic drugs and the findings registered to study the role of these drugs in suicides.
Despite Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warnings that antidepressants may induce suicidal behavior in those younger than 24, IQVia Total Patient Tracker Database for 2017, reported 2.1 million 0-17 year olds were prescribed the drugs, of which 1,503,185 were aged 13-17. All told, there were 7.2 million children and adolescents taking psychiatric drugs. [2]

One in every eight Americans over the age of 12 reported recent antidepressant use, according to the CDC. Between 1999 and 2014, the number of Americans who said they had taken an antidepressant over the past month rose by 65 percent, a 2017 government survey also found. [3]

Suicide and Violence

In a published response to a BMJ article, “Antidepressants and murder: case not closed,” Professor Peter C. Gotzsche of Nordic Cochrane Centre in Copenhagen warned that the FDA admitted in 2007 that SSRI antidepressants “can cause madness at all ages and that the drugs are very dangerous.” Quoting the FDA: “All patients being treated with antidepressants for any indication should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, and unusual changes in behavior….” In adult and pediatric patients, antidepressants can cause: anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), hypomania, and mania. [4]

Professor Gotzsche pointed out, “People cannot be monitored every minute and many have committed SSRI-induced suicide or homicide within a few hours after everyone thought they were perfectly okay.”

• Researchers looked at 64,381 pages of clinical study reports (70 trials) from the European Medicines Agency. These showed that SSRIs in comparison with placebo increase aggression in children and adolescents, odds ratio 2.79. “This is an important finding considering the many school shootings where the killers were on SSRIs,” the researchers said.
• In a systematic review of placebo-controlled trials in adult healthy volunteers, antidepressants double the occurrence of events that the FDA has defined as possible precursors to suicide and violence, odds ratio 1.85.
• “It can no longer be doubted that antidepressants are dangerous and can cause suicide and homicide at any age,” Professor Gotzsche reported.
Veteran Suicides and Acts of Violence

This is also evident in veteran suicides. Veterans account for one of every five suicides, according to the Pharmacist, stating: “Although all patients on antidepressants should be monitored for suicidal ideation when titrating, younger veterans (18-24 years) in particular should also be monitored closely after initiation.” [5]

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie recently told Congress that the VA is stepping up efforts to prevent veteran suicides. He highlighted the problem of firearm-related suicides, which he said accounted for 70 percent of veteran suicides. [6] What he didn’t discuss was the increasing prescribing of psychotropic drugs to veterans and how many of those committing suicide by firearm were taking and withdrawing from the psychotropic drugs.

CCHR’s report, “Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence & Suicide: Schools Shootings and Other Acts of Violence,” addresses both issues. Of 409 official psychiatric drug agency warnings, 49 warn of self-harm, suicide or suicidal ideation, 27 warn of violence, mania, psychosis, hostility, aggression and homicidal ideation, and 17 addiction and withdrawal effects.

The report cites numerous cases of veterans that while taking or withdrawing from psychotropic drugs, committed senseless acts of violence, including the Washington DC Navy Yard shooter, the Fort Hood gunman and the killer of former Navy S.E.A.L, Chris Kyle. [8]

Constitutional attorney Jonathan Emord is also calling on the Trump administration to launch a probe into possible links between psychiatric drugs and the epidemic of school shootings. The attorney notes that psychiatric drugs are known to produce dangerous side effects that include thoughts of and/or tendencies towards suicide and, importantly, violence. As such, “shouldn’t we expect aberrant behavior to be cropping up all over the nation?” Emord asked. [11]

CCHR points to the recently passed Whole Veteran Act as a step in the right direction as it would require the VA to study alternative health services for veterans. As co-sponsor of the law, Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Mt, said, “It turns out that not all doctors think that the best way to deal with chronic pain or [post-traumatic stress disorder] or depression is to simply hand out more pills.” In the right combination, holistic treatments can be safer and more affordable than traditional medicine, he said. [12]

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
