You will all die of cancer
    #3936969 - 03/18/05 07:56 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

that is, if you take ritalin....


http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/living/health/11170218.htm


Maybe this shouldnt be in the pub, but i felt it wouldnt be seen in the health forum, and this is some pretty devastating shit. I know eventually everything will be found to cause cancer, but I still love the huge "coincidence" that all these drugs (that we feed to our children no less) are causing life threatening symptoms and diseases. (sits back and waits for the news report that says prozac causes infertility, paxil causes anuerisms, adderol causes incontinence etc.) MAKE SURE TO GO DROP YOUR CHECK OFF TO MERK,PFIZER AND THE FDA!!!!

Small study ties Ritalin to risk of cancer; more research urged

By Paul Wenske

KNIGHT RIDDER NEWS SERVICE


Health experts say the first human study linking Ritalin - the most popular drug for attention-deficit problems - to a higher risk of cancer is raising alarms.

But they caution that more and larger studies should be conducted before pediatricians and therapists curtail prescribing Ritalin for the millions of children and adults in the United States who have benefited from its use for more than 50 years.

In a study to be published in Cancer Letters, Texas researchers found that after only three months, each of a dozen children treated with Ritalin had a threefold increase in chromosome abnormalities associated with increased risks of cancer.

"This study doesn't mean that these kids are going to get cancer, but it does mean they are exposed to an additional risk factor, assuming this study holds up," said Marvin Legator, an environmental toxicologist and principal investigator on the study based at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Legator acknowledged this week that the study group was small. But he said it was the first such study involving results in humans.

"This should raise a red flag," Legator said. "There's no question we need a bigger study before we take any further major action."

The drug is now made by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp. In a statement, Novartis repeated the safety record of the drug, which it said had been used for years "with no clinical evidence of a link to the development of cancer in humans."

Six million to 10 million Americans, many of them children, take Ritalin. The drug is a mild central nervous system stimulant that helps address the neurochemical problems that underlie attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Medical experts said that, until more was known, parents should not be frightened of giving the drug to their children.

"Cancer is something to be scared about, but untreated ADHD is devastating, too," said Kathryn Ellerbeck, a pediatrician at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Ellerbeck said untreated ADHD could lead to other life-threatening problems, including increased risks of accidents, addictive use of alcohol and drugs, and depression.

"This is concerning," she said of the new study. "But this is a drug that has been used for many years. And it works."

The Texas study is being released at a time of concern about other drugs used to treat ADHD.

Canada recently pulled Adderall XR, another top-selling ADHD drug, after its maker provided information about 20 patient deaths. Strattera, the first nonstimulant ADHD medication, has been linked by the Food and Drug Administration to liver damage.

In the Texas study, researchers drew blood from children diagnosed with ADHD before they began taking Ritalin, to get a baseline level of chromosomal abnormalities. Three months later, the researchers drew the children's blood and tested it again.

All 12 children showed chromosomal breaks that are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Thanks boom. Fuck the FDA and fuck all these pharm companies. They put drugs on the market that do more damage than good. Then they're touted as "safe" because they are legal. Fuck that. We need people to be held accountable and we need a change in the perception of pharmaceutical companies.

i didnt have to register to see the article.... i just did news search....that is kind of odd.

Yes! look at those evil tobacco companies, causing cancer and such, under the guise of the Surgeon Generals emphasema and cancer warnings. Here! have some ritalin little boy, but stay away from those nasty cigarettes, they will give you cancer! and make sure you take your xanex before you get in that car and drive anywhere, i would rather you completely zonked out of your mind than heaven forbid, get anxious while driving!

:ass:= you :penis:= FDA :doggystyle:= the fda and you

i love how there are 44 hits on this thread, and 4 posts besides myself. Also, I just saw this, on my browser, in this thread, there is an ad for "paxil side effects, and ritalin side effects", right underneath this!

Correlation does not equal causation.

Also it would also be far more informative to read the peer-reviewed study so we could make our own conclusions. Unfortunately, many depend on the mainstream media and "google", to interpret scientific studies and spoon feed them their conclusions.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.

I'm with you on that. They can't figure out how to use the search feature but somehow pull years-old threads out of thin air.
