我们可以战胜抑郁症吗

如果你在最大的医疗网站"医疗在线"上输入"情绪不稳"字样,你可以看到近62000条内容;如果将搜寻范围缩小到"随机对照试验"--一种被认为是最可靠的调查治疗效果的方法--你仍然可以看到超过3200条的内容。

考虑到抑郁症在健康、医疗保险费用、以及工作能力等方面引起的全球范围内的巨大影响,网上能提供这么多的信息量应该是一件好事。然而,如果仔细看一些个案,你会发现,大部分信息都将心理的、生理的、或者生化的困扰和抑郁症联系起来。其中没有哪一条信息可以帮助决定:什么样的病人应该在什么时候采用何种治疗方法。

当然,仍然可以找到大约1500条关于治疗方法的研究:精神病药物、ECT(同位素发射计算机辅助断层显像的英文缩写。兼具CT和核医学两种优势。)、明亮光线、健身、心理疗法、甚至针灸。的确,这些研究中很多都是用来证明在短期内,有些是在长期内,各种治疗方法所产生的影响,通常都是在疗效和安全性之间作出一个可接受的选择。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
