HOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IS PREYING ON OUR CHILDREN by K.L. Carlson, M.B.A. Once people are labeled, all their reactions will be blamed on the label, not the prescription drugs. The monster knows this and takes full advantage by teaming with the organization that votes mental disorders and their symptoms into existence, the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The number of mental disorders created by the APA has exploded to over 350, not one with an objective diagnostic test. Every new disorder has a drug treatment, therefore reaping profits for both psychiatry and the drug industry. They are conjoined twins – joined at the wallet. Most physicians who are not psychiatrists remain naïve about how this system works. The manual of mental disorders that the APA creates is called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, usually just referred to as the DSM. In the documentary film, Where the Truth Lies, a British psychiatrist candidly states, “DSM stands for diagnosis as a source of money. It brings in a lot of money.” The APA receives more money from the pharmaceutical industry than any other medical association. In July 2008, Senator Charles Grassley’s demands that the APA provide an accounting of its finances uncovered that in 2006 drug industry payments accounted for nearly 30 percent of the APA’s financing; more than $20 million dollars. While the conjoined twins bask in wealth, people die from the drugs; children die from the drugs.
