  1. With the children you need to write to YouTube and say why can we not block these horrible videos where Barbie gets her stomach cut open when she's pregnant you can block any other video but you cannot block these is YouTube in on really ruining children and making them killers?

  2. Send Dr Armen when it comes to these children I hope that you will look at the videos that YouTube will not block you can block any video but you cannot block the videos we're normal cartoons such as My Pretty Pony and Sonic the Hedgehog are made over to do horrible horrible things about the middle of the video. Parents do not know that their children are watching horrible terrifying things such as Barbie pregnant Barbie getting her stomach cut open.

  3. Why are we not hearing about this research all the time? One of the biggest problems of being part of an increasingly dense human population is that the damage that a single person, going haywire, is greatly amplified. We all need optimally functioning brains if we are going to avoid a becoming horribly dystopian. So – shouldn't we be getting our brains checked, for damage, regularly throughout our lives? Shouldn't we be encouraged to modify our diets, for instance, to promote brain repair (if such a thing is possible)?

    As with everything else, in the modern world, there has to be an economic advantage. Can governments not think about how much is being spent on the aftermath of crime and disfunction? I'm always hearing about how the prison system just can't cope for much longer. So – head of these problems before they manifest.

    Ignoring the tenet, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' I want to fix my brain. It might not need any fixing – I can't tell. What can I do? I stopped smoking, drinking and I don't take drugs. Will a vitamin supplement heal up those little holes, that might be evident, if I had one of these scans? And my son fell down a small flight of stairs, as a toddler, and also fell off the sofa once and had a big bump on his head. Now he's a moody, pessimistic and indolent teenager. Is there a connection?

  4. shocked to read all the negative reviews of the amen clinic including on BBB. what a shame! i was so impressed with dr. amen having watch him on pbs. just google amen clinic reviews and you will see them. i advised many people to go there, thank god that they didn't or else they'd be cursing me now!

  5. fraud. all of his findings are meaninglessbecause they haven't been validated by controlled studies to determine their diagnostic specificity. psychiatry, in general, is a pseudoscience.

  6. As long at all time we are aware of "Clockwork Orange" , "Cuckoo's Nest" and "Minority Report" we can try to make it work. But we should be very very careful!

  7. This is advertising! Dr Amen charges thousands of dollars for a test that has not been validated and may not be safe. I don't think any of Amen's research has provided clear evidence that patients who have had SPECT scans have superior clinical outcomes to adequately treated patients who have not been scanned.
