Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

Battling Suicidal Depression or Grief?
Over 280 million people suffer from depression around the world, over 800,000 people commit suicide each year and these statistics are not including un documented cases and numbers.

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

  This book is an opportunity for long-term sufferers of depression to gain different perspectives on environmental factors influencing depression and to find insight into several different ways to treat and heal depression, with a more ecological and holistic approach. Based on research over the last twenty years, that acknowledges depression as a multifaceted umbrella term hosting an intrinsic number of problems associated with the environment. The contemporary lifestyle has been the cause of many health problems related to chronic inflammation and health issues connected to poor nutrition and poor diet. Immune system activation, autoimmune illnesses and synthetic electromagnetic interferences such as Geopathic stress, are becoming increasingly more prevalent as technology evolves, and these are affecting human well-being.


 We also look at the bigger picture and possibilities of why we live in a time of global depression and why depression is so prevalent in Western cultures. We look at reasons that influence humanity from an in-depth ecological perspective and how environmental degradation influences and increases human depression. This is a unique viewpoint that is rarely considered in public discussions on depression nor is it addressed enough by the psychological experts.

Yet, it is vital to include ecological and environmental factors that contribute to depression, and the scientific research, statistics and peer-reviewed journals are mounting on this topic, of how our polluted environment is affecting our brains, health and consciousness.

If human consciousness is to change and transcend the current destructive paradigm, driven by globalization, this problem needs to be discussed and researched. More importantly, action needs to be taken by all, especially governments and lawmakers to improve the degradation of environmental protection laws and to protect people’s health by making every aspect of industry and society more ecologically sustainable. Sadly though, the opposite is more ubiquitous with politicians making decisions influenced by corporate lobbyists who pay them large sums of money to scrap environmental laws.

 The latest research has shown that air pollution is one influencing factor of depression.  Reducing pollution and industrial waste and switching from petroleum to greener alternatives such as water fuel cell cars and electric cars to cut air pollution will help reduce the problem. Depression is not just a result of mental or physical illness or personal issues and brain chemical imbalances, other root causes, such as a by-product of poor nutrition and a significant expansion of technological development causing environmental influences such as electromagnetic over-stimulation. These are causing geopathic stress from electromagnetic frequencies and radio wave frequencies such as the introduction of 5G and 6G microwaves used for our cell phones and internet, which hundreds of thousands of scientists have raised concerns about. 

Other matters that are controversial, but since the technology is being used, public awareness and a need for a public inquiry on this topic is vital. We need to have more open discussions on these technological advances of Artificial Intelligence, especially patents that are remotely monitoring and mapping the human brain, including testing on individuals without their knowledge or consent which could be detrimentally affecting human mental health. We also look at the Western lifestyle and cultural values, which would benefit from a more ecological and holistic shift in our values to improve our internal body ecology and mind- ecology and be more connected to nature.
