Utah Highway Patrol Reports Large Increase in Wrong-Way Drivers on Freeway

Police Officer Spikes

UHP Responds to SIX Wrong Way Drivers in Three Days

For a long time now I have warned that Utah could be used as a microcosm of what the rest of the country can expect to see soon as a result of antidepressant use. (A few other states could fit that profile as well also due to their high use of antidepressants.) But this trend of high speed wrong-way drivers is one that no one wants to see coming to their neighborhood! As the trooper states in the article below “It’s unfortunately very common.” When we first began to document these cases of wrong-way drivers using antidepressants I never ever dreamed we would get to the point where news reports would say it was now very common!

Please see this first part of the article and then read my comment on that article below to understand more about the connection….

RECENT UPTICK IN WRONG-WAY DRIVERS ON INTERSTATE A CONCERN FOR TROOPERS

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Highway Patrol is seeing a disturbing trend: drivers heading the wrong way at freeway speeds.

“It’s unfortunately very common,” UHP Sgt. Donavan Lucas said Friday. “Why? I don’t know. The on-ramps and off-ramps are pretty self-explanatory.”

It’s a trend that is a real danger to public safety and officers.

During a three-day stretch last month, from Feb. 6 to Feb. 9, state troopers responded to six calls of drivers heading into oncoming traffic on the interstate. Three of the drivers were arrested for investigation of DUI….

….“Somebody that’s impaired doesn’t have any idea of what they’re doing or where they’re going,” Lucas said.

My comment: “They don’t know why they are seeing an increase in wrong-way drivers? Has anyone considered toxicology tests on these people or recent medication history?

“For years I have taken reports from those on antidepressants that tell me they have driven the wrong way on a freeway at high speeds. They report the same in recent abrupt withdrawal from antidepressants.

“And for two decades I have documented tragic accidents where those on antidepressants have driven the wrong way on freeways at high speeds and had accidents killing others. Considering the strong negative impact these drugs have on blood sugar this reaction should not surprise anyone.

“Might be a good idea to check the connection to these prescription drugs before something worse happens.”

I do know that about five years ago one officer reported that of the 150 DUIs he had handed out that month only three involved alcohol while all the rest involved the use of prescription medications.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

BLUEBERRIES RID BELLY FAT & AID IN PROCESSING BOTH FAT & SUGAR

BLUEBERRIES RID BELLY FAT & AID IN PROCESSING BOTH FAT & SUGAR

blueberries[1]

“Blueberries may actually inhibit the formation of fat cells and change the way we process fat and sugar.

Since antidepressants produce incredible weight gain, problems with blood sugar, constipation, vision, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, memory loss, cancer, immune problems, brain health, etc. I thought this information on Blueberries & their benefits would be interesting to you as one of the options to rebuilding your health post antidepressants.

Inhibition of fat cell formation & processing both fats & sugars

“Blueberries may actually inhibit the formation of fat cells and change the way we process fat and sugar.

“There are many, many reasons blueberries are a great addition to anyone’s diet. If potential weight loss isn’t something you are looking for, here are some other excellent benefits:

Digestion & Constipation

“Blueberries have insoluble fiber which assists the digestive process by moving food through the intestines. This of course aids elimination (which of course can also be beneficial to anyone trying to lose weight).

Vision

“Blueberries have been found to slow down visual loss. They may also help prevent degenerating diseases of the eye due to their antioxidant properties. These berries contain a special group of antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids. In addition, blueberries are rich in vitamins C, E and A as well as minerals selenium, zinc and phosphorous. These nutrients are very beneficial for ocular (pertaining to the eye) health.

Heart Disease

“Again, thanks to their antioxidant properties, blueberries are another great food for cardiovascular health. They have a high fiber content which assists in dissolving the bad cholesterol. Blueberries also strengthen the cardiac muscles.

Brain Health

“The many nutrients in blueberries can help prevent the degeneration of brain cells as well as restore the health of the central nervous system. They have even had a very positive affect on people with Alzheimer’s. Blueberries can actually keep you memory sharp. Researchers have found that diets rich in blueberries can even improve learning capacity and motor skills of aging animals.

Cancer

“Blueberries can also have a very positive effect on certain types of cancers. One study showed that compounds in blueberries can inhibit colon cancer cell proliferation and cause the cancer cells to die.

Immune

“The high vitamin and antioxidant nutrients in blueberries make it an excellent immune protector. A strong immune system means fewer infections. With winter around the corner, and all the colds and flu that accompany it, now is the time to fortify your body.

“The blueberry is a stellar example of another great food from Mother Nature. Yes, there are all kinds of excellent supplements to aid with various body problems, but the diet is the key to long-term health. So go out and enjoy some blueberries!”

BOOK TESTIMONIALS:

“VERY BOLD AND INFORMATIVE”

“PRICELESS INFORMATION THAT IS GIVING ME BACK TO ME”

“THE ABSOLUTE BEST REFERENCE FOR ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS”

“WELL DOCUMENTED & SCIENTIFICALLY RESEARCHED”

“I was stunned at the amount of research Ann Blake-Tracy has done on this subject. Few researchers go to as much trouble aggressively gathering information on the adverse reactions of Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRIs.”

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambian. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

“I’m so thankful for Ann Blake-Tracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!
