Perhaps I should make a separate thread discussing each theory I have as this thread is just simply about where to go for help in discussing these theories to get some type of testing/research done.

I personally think these environmental things are inflaming the brain. This brain inflammation, I believe is leading to brain disease such as depression and the other diseases listed. Things like a Serotonin deficiency are just a symptom for SOME people, not the cause, hence why trying to treat a brain disease like depression with Serotonin (with common SSRIs) re uptake inhibitors is not more effective then an active placebo. This may also be why trying to treat major brain diseases have so far really not developed any real significant advancements in treating them over the years. We are treating symptoms, not the cause. Its like trying to treat a noisy knocking damaged engine by spraying a bunch of noise reduction foam in the engine compartment so we dont have to deal with the symptoms of noise as we are driving.

As humans spend more and more time indoors (instead of outdoors) we continue to be exposed to these VOCs and toxins on a more regular basis and for a longer period of time. As these VOCs and things like VOCs in smog continue to increase because of an increasing global population, these brain diseases will most likely continue to increase. At least, that is part of my theory as well.

While I am not a specialist in the field of my theories, I have other theories based on my own observations, study, personal experiences and from the experiences of others. I have the ability to see links, commonalities and insights into things that the average person does not. Perhaps I should go back to school and get a specific degree in field of the theory I have. Should I make another thread about this topic so people can discuss it specifically, or leave it here?
Most of this stuff is well known or suspected - sorta why lots of products say "the state of California has found that...."....

The sad reality is this. Suppose that we proved, beyond a doubt, that the internal combustion engine and all associated activities (refining, drilling, etc.) caused 1/2 million excess or early deaths per year in the USA....

Would we make cars illegal? Gas? Refining?

The answer is no. Like it or not, the powers that be have accepted that economics trumps the other stuff. Sometimes these decisions are societal (most people are "against" public transit) and sometimes they are purely profit driven...

The best you can do is try and protect yourself and your family from an excess of dangerous chemicals and drugs. The human condition is not about to instantly change - although it seems to be moving slowly in the right direction.

It's easy to point out problems - much harder to fix them. But some are working on it.

Not necessarily.

What is frustrating is the snails pace that clinical trials and scientific understanding move at.

Clinical trials usually run anywhere from 10 - 20 years. 10 years is a whole decade just to see if one method/medicine works. 10 years is incredibly fast for an clinical trial but it is a very long time just to try one thing. Especially since most clinical trials/medicines do not work/finish from trial start to finish.

Unfortunately, from trial to finish, clinical trials often take more then 10 years.

That's not necessary...if you don't believe him that's all right...your prerogative.

Still doesn’t explain how a made up story about a person who likely doesn’t exist is a “great post”

You mean apart from the glaringly obvious one of "because the story fits a dogma the person is supportive of"?
