A few years ago it was related to me by a close friend that she had been depressed for quite some time. She could not figure out what was prompting her state of being.
It just so happened that she opted to spend the summer back in her country in Europe, and one of the things she chose to do often was be outside and enjoy the sun. Soon thereafter she found herself feeling livelier with every new day as she spent more and more time in the sun.
She then figured out that her Vitamin D levels were low, which is one deficiency that will cause depression. Lo and behold, by being able to figure that out, she did not have to take medication [that has countless side effects] for a malady that was solved by in such a simple manner.
Vitamin D’s importance and the deficiencies is oft-overlooked by mainstream doctors. Not only does Vitamin D deficiency cause depression, but it also has been linked to cause pain, inflammatory bowel disease and cancer.
The video by Dr. Kelly Brogan M.D. below relates how everything that we know about depression is flawed. Its a short video and well worth the watch.
In the age in which prescriptions are being dolled out at the tune of 4 Billion a year [about 13 medications for every person in America] its good not only to learn more about whatever possible dis-ease/imbalance might be causing your health issues, but also that often what can be done is correct nutritional imbalances rather than take toxic medications.

After a drop of more than 20% from late April to mid June in wholesale gasoline prices which was heralded as the great savior of a slowing global economy – all those implicit tax cuts… the hopes and dreams of the next great unsterilized money-printing has not only floated equity asset valuations to near multi-year highs but energy prices across Europe and the US are soaring once again. This ‘transitory’ 25% surge in wholesale gasoline prices in the US in the last two months – now back above $3/gallon implies (given the lag in transmission) that retail gas prices (which historically peak around July 4th) are set to rise notably above last year’s summer peak – back up near record highs and eating into that ever so happy to spend consumer’s pocketbook once again. Meanwhile, Europeans are seeing near-record highs in retail gas prices once again andBrent priced in EUR (which remember is what they ‘care’ about) is now back above 2008 highs and within a few euros of all-time record highs – up almost 30% since Mid-June. Deflationary? Recessionary?
US Crude, Wholesale Gasoline, and Retail Gas Prices are charging higher…

Today 40 year veteran, Robert Fitzwilson, wrote the following piece exclusively for King World News. Fitzwilson, who is founder of The Portola Group, put together a fascinating piece which takes covers everything from Art Cashin, the 70s, and what the smart money is doing right now. Below is Fitzwilson’s piece.
“The great Art Cashin once said that he was counseled as a young man “not to plan for the end of the world as it is a one-off event”. As we try to divine our investment future, it is helpful to keep that sage advice in mind.
When I started my career in the early ‘70s, my singular goal was to graduate from a certain business school. It was the crowning achievement of my young life. Graduating in 1973, I took a job with an investment firm, eager to learn the business. Unfortunately, I parachuted right into one of the worst bear markets in history. It was so bad that we were forced to retreat to libraries to read books about how to invest.
The answer, though, was simple. Everything was going down. It did not matter what theory one employed. The Dow Jones had peaked in January of 1973 at 1067, and dropped like a stone to finally bottom out at 570 at the end of 1974. Needless to say, my eagerness and budding love of the business was greatly diminished.
I thought it was cruel that I had achieved the crowning achievement of my young life only to find out that the world was going to end. This was the age of the long gas lines. To even get gas, one had to have a friend who knew a friend. You then had to get in line, usually when nobody was looking….

Anyone betting that the global financial system will continue to muddle along indefinitely deserves to reap the whirlwind that’s coming. As the rest of us well know, the international banking system is being kept afloat solely by political lies, stupidity, corruption, greed and, most of all, egregiously misplaced confidence. It would seem to be only a matter of time before the rotted timbers of this belief system give way. But what will be the catalyst? The possibility or even likelihood that the financial system will be toppled by some event no one was expecting was an implicit theme of Nassim Taleb’s widely read 2004 book, Fooled by Randomness. In the New York Times, Taleb asserted the following: What we call here a Black Swan (and capitalize it) is an event with the following three attributes. First, it is an outlier, as it lies outside the realm of regular expectations, because nothing in the past can convincingly point to its possibility. Second, it carries an extreme impact. Third, in spite of its outlier status, human nature makes us concoct explanations for its occurrence after the fact, making it explainable and predictable.
