In the News (From Reuters.com): “Europeans are plagued by mental and neurological illnesses, with almost 165 million people or 38 percent of the population suffering each year from a brain disorder such as depression, anxiety, insomnia or dementia, according to a large new study.
[These are the results of] “a three-year study covering 30 European countries — the 27 European Union member states plus Switzerland, Iceland and Norway — and a population of 514 million people.
“Wittchen’s [director of the institute of clinical psychology and psychotherapy at Germany’s Dresden University and the lead investigator on the European study] team looked at about 100 illnesses covering all major brain disorders from anxiety and depression to addiction to schizophrenia, as well as major neurological disorders including epilepsy, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
“Mental illnesses are a major cause of death, disability, and economic burden worldwide, and the World Health Organization predicts that by 2020, depression will be the second leading contributor to the global burden of disease across all ages.”
My Comment: In the harsh egoistic world, a person fights for his existence and spends all his energy, health, and life on this. Only the transition to an integral society will give people inner balance and peace, relieve them of the causes of all illnesses and disorders. When the whole society becomes like one family, every person is permeated with a common concern—the energy of a healthy space, Light—and the cause of all ailments disappears.
