    Is this for real??? I was hoping it's only a joke, but....looks like it's for real!!!
    I'm doing copy/paste here...and I still can't believe they really mean it?!?! ROFLMAO!!!


    Choosing healthy foods now called a mental disorder

    In its never-ending attempt to fabricate “mental disorders” out of every human activity, the psychiatric industry is now pushing the most ridiculous disease they’ve invented yet: Healthy eating disorder.
    This is no joke: If you focus on eating healthy foods, you’re “mentally diseased” and probably need some sort of chemical treatment involving powerful psychotropic drugs. The Guardian newspaper reports, “Fixation with healthy eating can be sign of serious psychological disorder” and goes on to claim this “disease” is called orthorexia nervosa — which is basically just Latin for “nervous about correct eating.”
    But they can’t just called it “nervous healthy eating disorder” because that doesn’t sound like they know what they’re talking about. So they translate it into Latin where it sounds smart (even though it isn’t). That’s where most disease names come from: Doctors just describe the symptoms they see with a name like osteoporosis (which means “bones with holes in them”).
    Getting back to this fabricated “orthorexia” disease, the Guardian goes on to report, “Orthorexics commonly have rigid rules around eating. Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out.”
    Wait a second. So attempting to avoid chemicals, dairy, soy and sugar now makes you a mental health patient? Yep. According to these experts. If you actually take special care to avoid pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified ingredients like soy and sugar, there’s something wrong with you.
    But did you notice that eating junk food is assumed to be “normal?” If you eat processed junk foods laced with synthetic chemicals, that’s okay with them. The mental patients are the ones who choose organic, natural foods, apparently.
    What is “normal” when it comes to foods?

    I told you this was coming. Years ago, I warned NaturalNews readers that an attempt might soon be under way to outlaw broccoli because of its anti-cancer phytonutrients. This mental health assault on health-conscious consumers is part of that agenda. It’s an effort to marginalize healthy eaters by declaring them to be mentally unstable and therefore justify carting them off to mental institutions where they will be injected with psychiatric drugs and fed institutional food that’s all processed, dead and full of toxic chemicals.
    The Guardian even goes to the ridiculous extreme of saying, “The obsession about which foods are “good” and which are “bad” means orthorexics can end up malnourished.”
    Follow the non-logic on this, if you can: Eating “good” foods will cause malnutrition! Eating bad foods, I suppose, is assumed to provide all the nutrients you need. That’s about as crazy a statement on nutrition as I’ve ever read. No wonder people are so diseased today: The mainstream media is telling them that eating health food is a mental disorder that will cause malnutrition!

    I'm not surprised...Everything is a "disorder" now....When I had a TON of trouble with my son when he was little? It took a therapist 7 months to diagnose him with ADHD, and "Oppositional Defiant"...:rolleyes:
    I'm pretty sure when I was growing up, "Bad" and "Oppositional Defiant" meant the same thing, and we got punished...not medicated....Good grief...

    In my country the least respected and worse paid medical profession is a psychiatrist... Their breed is rare in the Balkans....If you go to the doctor, and he tries to send you to a psychiatrist, everybody here takes that as a huge insult, and the good doctor can easily loose some teeth...or worse! Only people that visit psychiatrists here are the people accused for murders (court order)...
    If we get depressed, we call some friends and we get drunk silly!
    If we are happy, we call some friends and we get drunk silly!
    If we need someone to cry on his shoulder, we call one friend and...yep! we get drunk silly! (In previous situations even some pot can find its curative place here...)

    Conclusion: in the Balkans, no mental disease can flourish... we kill it with alcohol immediately!...just as we did with the psychiatrists!... :D

    So I guess alcoholics in the Balkans are pretty much SOL. [beer]

    LOL...nope, we don't have many alcoholics...actually, very few...we also have very few drug addicts...we have about 25 HIV positive people here...
    We are used to be content with what we have...Almost all of us have our own apartments and houses. Only people that rent apts and houses are people from other towns coming here and foreigners...We do have one small problem with unemployment, but so does the entire world...
    What can I tell you...Macedonia is small, but clean and beautiful. We have only 2 million people and about half of that live in the capitol, Skopje...
    So far I have refused job offers from US, Ireland, Dubai and Abu Dhabi...I also refused Immigration proposals from Australia and Canada...
    My family is happy here. I own 4 bedroom apartment and 4 bedroom house here in Skopje. I also own 20 hectares of land and 2 houses in Serbia, which is about 4 hours drive from Skopje. I have a spring of clean water on my property, which also provides irrigation water for other neighbors around. I have no mortgages or loans, I do not owe anything to anyone. I can make my own brandy, wine, fruits and vegetables, raise whatever livestock I want and eat and drink whatever I want...
    Why would I like to go anywhere?
    I miss though one thing western countries have...RadioShack and hunting and fishing shops...
