My Positive Perspective wants teenagers and their parents to be aware of the great risk they are suspecting their minds to

November 2012 was when My Positive Perspective chose to air an episode that was geared at educating teenagers with still developing bodies about the danger associated that. Doctor Matt Antonuci accompanied host Jason Deierlein for the episode. Antonucci mainly centered on research conducted by a magazine called Neurology Now. Brain scans were conducted on both the regular drinker and the non drinker. According to Antonucci, “They gave them a working memory test, and you can see the non drinker’s scan is light up because it indicated areas of the brain that are working properly.” “On the other scan there is hardly any activity at all.” This shows inactivity in the brain because of the dead brain cells.

Deierlein commented on the study using his own experience saying, “After my car accident, much of my recovery was due to the fact that I did not drink previously.” The time in which the body is developing is when toxins have the greatest impact and potential to harm. When Deierlein asks Antonucci about what his car accident and brain injury recovery would have been like had he been a heavy drinker prior to the accident, Antonucci replies, “You would have certainly had a harder time recovering, your neurons wouldn’t have had the high activity level needed to recover.” Deierlein says, “My Positive Perspective wants teenagers and their parents to be aware of the great risk you are suspecting your mind to when you do not allow it to fully develop properly.

My Positive Perspective is an internet talk show created for the purposes of overcoming adversity. We educate and inspire in many different ways and talk about different types of obstacles, but the ultimate goal of this business is to spread positively and strengthen wherever there is a weakness or tragedy to overcome. I myself survived a car accident, coma, and painful rehabilitation. I consider myself lucky to be here and providing the public with this free service. This company is kind of my gift to myself for achieving. The one thing you never lose after surviving a tragedy is desire to help. Don’t be afraid to go!
