'Deaths of despair' drag life expectancy lower for whites
By MIKE STOBBE
Jun. 3, 2016 8:49 AM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) — Rising drug and alcohol overdoses, suicides, and disease from chronic alcoholism — labeled "deaths of despair" by one expert — are cutting the lives of white Americans short by nearly a half a year on average.

Increases in these types of deaths among whites means that life expectancy for whites is not increasing as fast as it is for other groups, according to a government report that offers an unusual look at how different threats are affecting U.S. lifespans.

"Things are moving in the wrong direction," said Anne Case, a Princeton University researcher, of what she calls "deaths of despair."

Drawing from death certificate data, the new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focuses on what happened to white life expectancy between 2000 and 2014.

The work was a reaction to recent research that suggested drug overdoses and suicides have caused alarming increases in death rates for middle-aged white Americans. The new report, which did not perform the same analysis for blacks and Hispanics, was posted online Friday.

...
But then drugs and alcohol subtracted about 4 months from life expectancy, according to Kenneth Kochanek, a CDC statistician who was the report's lead author. No other cause of death had a bigger negative impact, he said.

Increasing suicides had the second largest negative impact, subtracting roughly 6 weeks from white life expectancy. The growing impact of Alzheimer's disease was third, reducing longevity by about 3 weeks.

[ Are women (or lack of)  driving men to suicide ? Or is it the new World Order Globalist Culture of death? ]

The silent epidemic of male suicide
 
 Issue: BCMJ, Vol. 53, No. 10, December 2011, page(s) 529-534 Articles
Dan Bilsker, PhD, Jennifer White, EdD

Suicide in men has been des­cribed as a “silent epidemic.”[1] It has a disturbingly high incidence and is a major contributor to men’s mortality.

It has a disturbingly high incidence and is a major contributor to men’s mortality. In British Columbia, suicide is one of the top three causes of mortality among men aged 15 and 44.[2] Among men of all ages in Canada, suicide ranked as the seventh leading cause of death in 2007.[3]

The silence surrounding suicide among men is also striking and warrants comment.

First, there appears to be an overall lack of public awareness regarding the high rates of suicide among men, especially relative to other more highly publicized threats to men’s health, such as HIV/AIDS, that account for far fewer premature deaths among males each year (e.g., in 2005 45 male deaths were attributed to AIDS in Canada in contrast to 2857 male deaths from suicide).[4,5]

Second, while accumulating empirical evidence confirms that men in Western nations consistently die by suicide at higher rates than women[6,7] (with the pattern reversed for nonfatal suicidal behaviors), surprisingly few explanatory frameworks have been developed to account for this persistent pattern.

Third, few preventive efforts or policies specifically targeting male suicide have been developed or evaluated, which further contri­butes to its lack of visibility as a major public health problem. When gender is addressed it is often treated as a static demographic variable as opposed to a culturally mediated social construction that intersects with other diversity markers such as race, sexual orientation, and age in highly complex ways.[8,9]

Finally, given men’s general reluctance to seek help for suicide-related concerns,[7] and the stigma associated with mental health problems in general, it is no surprise that suicide among men is largely invisible.

...

Magnitude of the problem
Men have a shockingly high rate of death by suicide compared with wo­men.

Across all countries reporting these data (except China and India) males show a suicide rate that is 3.0 to 7.5 times that of women.[10]

In Canada, the male suicide rate is about three times that of women.[11]  Figure 1 charts the age- and gender-specific incidence of suicide in Canada, based on data from 2001 to 2005. Two patterns are worth noting:

The male suicide rate increases fairly steadily with age, peaking in the late 40s, then falling significantly and rising again in the 80s.
Male rates are greater than female rates at all ages and substantially greater across most of the lifespan.

[ Suicide in USA highest rate almost ever .... Thx Obama! ! ! ]

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/22/health/us-suicide-rate-surges-to-a-30-year-high.html
U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High
By SABRINA TAVERNISE APRIL 22, 2016

WASHINGTON — Suicide in the United States has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, a federal data analysis has found, with increases in every age group except older adults. The rise was particularly steep for women. It was also substantial among middle-aged Americans, sending a signal of deep anguish from a group whose suicide rates had been stable or falling since the 1950s.
...
The overall suicide rate rose by 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, which released the study on Friday.

The increases were so widespread that they lifted the nation’s suicide rate to 13 per 100,000 people, the highest since 1986. The rate rose by 2 percent a year starting in 2006, double the annual rise in the earlier period of the study. In all, 42,773 people died from suicide in 2014, compared with 29,199 in 1999.

Americans Are Dying Faster. Millennials, Too

People who predict death for a living have some bad news.
...

The latest, best guesses for U.S. lifespans come from a study (PDF) released this month by the Society of Actuaries: The average 65-year-old American man should die a few months short of his 86th birthday, while the average 65-year-old woman gets an additional two years, barely missing age 88.

This new data turns out to be a disappointment. Over the past several years, the health of Americans has deteriorated—particularly that of middle-aged non-Hispanic whites.

Among the culprits are drug overdoses, suicide, alcohol poisoning, and liver disease, according to a Princeton University study issued in December.


...

Baby boomers, Generation X, and yes, millennials, are all doing worse

Recently a middle age man went postal and committed serial murder and then suicide by cop ....  he was 49, broke and his girlfriend left him ..


http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/san-diego-pool-party-gunman-peter-selis-struggling-debt-article-1.3123591
Pool party gunman Peter Selis called ex so she could 'listen in' to attack, wasn't motivated by racism, cops say

The white gunman who opened fire on a group of black partygoers at a San Diego apartment complex Sunday was “despondent” over his love life – not driven by racial hatred, police said Monday.

“The victims were targeted for no other reason than their mere presence in the vicinity of the suspect,” San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said at a midday press conference.


“He was on the lounge chair while he was shooting,” she said. “We do know that he was on the cell phone talking with his ex-girlfriend while he was continuing to shoot.”

...
Investigators believe the shooting was a “spontaneous act of violence” and that Selis didn’t know his victims, she said.
...
Selis, 49, reportedly began shooting into a crowd of dozens of people attending a pool party at the La Jolla Crossroads Apartments complex around 6 p.m. Sunday, police said.

Four black women, two black men and a Latino man were struck by the gunfire, police said.

One of the women, 35-year-old mother Monique Clark, later died at the hospital and several of the victims were critically injured.

Chief Zimmerman said Monday that the seriously injured victims were all expected to survive.
...


 Police said Selis had one registered handgun – a .45 SIG Sauer handgun.

Investigators were still piecing together how many rounds he fired, Chief Zimmerman said at the Monday morning press briefing.

According to court records, Selis was a car mechanic who struggled with massive debt and a failing marriage when he filed for bankruptcy in late 2015.

His filing listed debts of $108,028 and assets of only $14,100. It also referred to a woman living with him at the time as his “estranged wife” and said he worked as a car mechanic at Mossy Ford in San Diego for the prior five years, making $6,224 a month.

He listed a 12-year-old daughter, a 16-year-old son and a 19-year-old on the form filed October 19, 2015.

 Witnesses described Selis as very “relaxed” in the minutes leading up to his deadly spree.

One told Fox5 that Selis “was sitting there with a beer in one hand and a gun in the other.”

The gathering was a birthday party held at the upscale complex near the University of California, San Diego.

A police helicopter arrived first at the scene, and the pilot reported seeing multiple victims on the ground and Selis apparently reloading his firearm in the pool area, the police chief said.

Three officers rushed in on foot and shot Selis dead after he pointed a large-caliber handgun at them, she said.

Selis’ bankruptcy filing listed an address in the massive complex that spans several blocks.

"This is truly a horrific act of violence," San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said at a news conference. "Our entire city, all of our thoughts and prayers, all San Diegans' thoughts and prayers, are with the victims and their families tonight."

What a punk!

If you're an adult, and you want to end your life, fine, that's your right. The plutocrats, oligarchs and robber barons who own and control our government -- and who are obsessed with eugenics and depopulation -- will, of course, strongly object, but that's only because they don't want the masses of peasants and indentured servants over whom they rule thinking that their lives are their own.

But don't use the fact that you're emotionally troubled as an excuse to physically harm others!

That is not your right.

Nor is it your right to leave a helpless baby crying in the next room. Either sign over custody to a family member or put the poor thing up for adoption before doing whatever it is you've decided to do.

It is one of the most enigmatic stories of all time, with an opening sentence that’s unparalleled in all of literature.

Kate Spade?s death ignites concern about rising suicide rate
Liz Szabo, Kaiser Health News Published 1:22 p.m. ET June 7, 2018

Fashion designer Kate Spade?s death  this week has reminded Americans of the enormous toll of suicide, a growing problem that claims nearly 45,000 lives a year.

Suicide rates in the U.S. have risen nearly 30% since 1999, according to a report released Thursday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Suicides increased in both men and women, in all ethnic groups and in both urban and rural areas. Suicide and ?self-harm,? a category that includes attempted suicides, cost the nation $70 billion a year in medical care and lost work time, the CDC says.

Nearly half of people who died by suicide had a known mental health condition, according to the CDC. Family members have given different accounts of Spade?s struggle. In media interviews, her sister, Reta Saffo, has said that she believes the designer suffered from bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression. The designer?s husband said in a statement that she ?suffered from depression and anxiety for many years? and ?was actively seeking help? before she died on Tuesday.

Inside Kate Spade's life of professional triumph and personal turmoil


Suicide rates are climbing in nearly every state in the countr
y, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which announced the ?troubling? trend Thursday.

New York saw a roughly 30 percent jump since 1999, mirroring the nationwide rate for the same period, according to the agency, which examined state-level trends in suicide rates from that year through 2016.
...
In 2016 nearly 45,000 Americans aged 10 or older died by suicide, up from 41,149 suicides in 2013 ? making it the 10th leading cause of death in the nation, according to the agency.
...
Twenty-five states had suicide rates that increased more than 30 percent, and the highest increase was seen in North Dakota at 57.6 percent. Delaware had the lowest increase at 5.9 percent.

Nevada is the only state that didn?t show an increase, but its rate was consistently high throughout the study period, the researchers noted.
...
Researchers found that more than half of people who died by suicide didn?t have a known diagnosed mental health condition, despite previous studies showing 90% of individuals who died by suicide did.

The most common method was using a firearm, followed by suffocation, the agency said.

The chef, married twice, leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane.

After dropping out of Vassar College two years into his degree, Bourdain worked in restaurants in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The young chef would go on to graduate from the Culinary Institute of America.

Bourdain shot to fame after publishing his best-selling memoir Kitchen Confidential and became one of the world?s most famous chefs after starring in the television show?s Cook?s Tour and No Reservations.

The book detailed his life as a young chef in the gritty underbelly of the culinary world while battling drug addiction. ?All I can tell you is this: I got off of heroin in the 1980s? There are a lot of guys that didn?t get that far,? he told Eater in 2016.

Bourdain was dating Italian actress Asia Argento, who accused movie producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.

Bourdain was starting to branch out into exposing child trafficking and other truths. He didn't like Obama.  Elon Musk had convinced him what was really going on and now wanted to meet with Trump.

ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS AND SUICIDE
June 11, 2018
BY MICHAEL SAVAGE

This past week has seen the tragic suicides of two celebrities who seemingly had it all. Kate Spade, the iconic fashion designer, took her own life by hanging in her Park Avenue home. Later, chef and travel host Anthony Bourdain took his own life while shooting on location in France.
...
I assure you the mainstream media will not report the relationship between antidepressant drugs and suicide although the correlation was first noted in 1990 and has been generally accepted since 2002. In a 2016 study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen revealed that pharmaceutical companies were not offering the full impact of these medications in reports. Their research concluded that suicidal thoughts and aggressive behavior doubled in children and adolescents who used medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI).

Even more concerning from their findings was that they determined that antidepressants do not offer their prescribed results in children. Nordic Cochrane Centre Professor Peter G?tzsche said: ?Antidepressants don?t work in children, that is pretty clear, in the randomised trials children say that they don?t work for them, but they increase their risk of suicide.?

In response to this study, a spokesman for Eli Lilly told The Telegraph, ?No regulatory authority has ever determined that Lilly withheld or improperly disclosed any data related to these medications.?

Experts said the reviews findings were startling and deeply worrying, stating that people in the UK are consuming more than four times as many antidepressants that they did two decades ago.

Now what about the United States? America is no stranger to the antidepressants either as our nation increased use of antidepressants by 65% in 15 years. I?m sure you know a number of people who run on antidepressants like M&Ms. But this is no laughing matter, rather an alarming moment for our nation as a growing number of us are beset by depression.

If we examine the school shootings in America, in almost every case these deranged children were on antidepressant medications but inevitably it is swept away by the drug companies before we can recognize these perils.

My concerns were only solidified as the media once again pushed the use of antidepressants in reaction to these high profile suicides. Instead of recognizing the risks associated with antidepressants, a Reuters article called for pharmaceutical companies to introduce new antidepressants to the market:

?A spike in suicide rates in the United States has cast fresh light on the need for more effective treatments for major depression, with researchers saying it is a tricky development area that has largely been abandoned by big pharmaceutical companies.?
