Ian Chovil's Homepage
Quoting from Iran's web site, "I have
schizophrenia & have been on medication
since 1990...I'm 49 and my schizophrenia
started in late adolescence. I struggled for
ten years between 1980 and 1990, in psychosis,
alone and very poor. I eventually got in trouble
with the law and received three years probation
with the condition that I see a psychiatrist for
those three years. I've been to jail, been actively
alcoholic, attempted suicide, & been homeless.
My story illustrates an interplay of biology &
sociology that can make schizophrenia a
devastating illness. There is the illness itself,
and the way we, as a society, treat people
who develop it.

learn new skills, day-by-day, overtime, you form

Healthy School Lunches
"The Healthy School Lunch Campaign,
sponsored by the Physicians Committee for
Responsible Medicine (PCRM), is dedicated
to improving the food served to children in
schools by educating government & school
officials, food service workers, parents, &
others about the food choices best able to
promote children’s current and long-term health.
The campaign’s key message: Foods
served in schools should promote the
health of all children. Menus in most school
lunch programs are too high in saturated fat &
cholesterol and too low in fiber- and nutrient-
rich fruits, vegetables, whole grains, & legumes
(see PCRM’s School Lunch Report.) Major
hanges are needed to protect the health
of our nation’s youth and to reverse the growing
trends of obesity and chronic disease among
children & teens. PCRM is calling on Congress
and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide
soymilk or other non-dairy, calcium-rich foods
as alternatives to cow’s milk. The Healthy
School Lunch Campaign also urges schools to
serve more low-fat, cholesterol-free meals &
side dishes. Find out what you can do to help."
