Excerpts from NYTImes article: THE TV WATCH; Talk Show Rarity: A True Believer's Candor ''Matt, Matt, you don't even -- you're glib,'' Mr. Cruise said. ''You don't even know what Ritalin is. If you start talking about chemical imbalance, you have to evaluate and read the research papers on how they came up with these theories, Matt, O.K.? That's what I've done.'' And, actually, he had a point. Morning talk show hosts are facile and heavily scripted, and too often they recite streams of perceived wisdom as if they were undeniable facts. Mr. Lauer showed grace but not much intellectual skill as he was out-debated by a Hollywood actor who described psychiatry as a pseudoscience and said vitamins and exercise could cure postpartum depression. But Mr. Lauer was also lucky. Mr. Cruise provided exactly what talk show hosts are supposed to elicit from celebrity guests and so rarely do: sincerity. And he went way off on a tangent with Mr. Lauer, veering away from his movie and new fiancée to defend his attack on Brooke Shields. (He reproached her for relying on antidepressants to treat her postpartum blues.) ''She doesn't understand the history of psychiatry in the same way you don't understand it, Matt,'' the actor said. Mr. Lauer sputtered a response, but Mr. Cruise was adamant. ''And to talk about it in a way of saying, 'Well, isn't it O.K.?' and being reasonable about it when you don't know and I do, I think that you should be a little bit more responsible in knowing what it is.''

In an explosive admission, American Psychiatric Association President Steven Sharfstein did a 180-degree turn around on his TODAY show interview (27 June) and admitted that there is no way to test for a "chemical imbalance" as the cause for mental disorders. PEOPLE Magazine (11 July), quoted Dr. Sharfstein as conceding, "We do not have a clean-cut lab test."

This came after Tom Cruise raised the question on the TODAY show about the validity of Psychiatry. Dr. Sharfstein on a later show could not conclusinvely say there was any test for chemical imbalance w hich means the prescribing of antidepressants for behavior problems is fraudulant.

Pep and EnergyThe US Department of Agriculture estimates the average US Citizen consumes 152 pounds of sugar per year. Sugar comes in many forms: soft drinks, candy, desserts, manufactured food and so on. Because sugar is inexpensive, tastes good and is habit forming, food companies and fast-food restaurants add sugar without restraint.Sugar, like any addictive substance, makes you crave more sugar. For example, a piece of chocolate gives you a little extra energy which makes you slightly happier for an hour or so. As soon as the effect wears off, you feel tired and maybe a little depressed. So to feel perky again, you want another piece of chocolate. Like cigarettes, alcohol or heroin, the substance is the problem AND the solution.Every diet that lowers your weight or improves your health has one thing in common: YOU MUST STOP EATING SUGAR. Hundreds of scientific studies prove that sugar makes your body store fat. Excessive fat increases your chance of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and death.
