A recent development has highlighted the trend of authoritarian psychiatric invasions into everyday life.
A new book has revealed that the diagnosis of “bipolar disease” among American children is a scientific fraud and a precursor to the administration of highly dangerous drugs.
Psychiatrist Stuart Kaplan, a professor at Penn State College of Medicine, has written an article for the June 20th issue of Newsweek, based on his book, YOUR CHILD DOES NOT HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER: HOW BAD SCIENCE AND GOOD PR CREATED THE DIAGNOSIS.
Kaplan states that, in 1995, there were fewer than 20,000 outpatient visits for pediatric bipolar disorder in the US. As of 2003, that number had swelled to a mind-boggling 800,000.
And yet there is no recognized psychiatric category called "pediatric bipolar disorder."
But the publication of a 2002 best seller, The Bipolar Child (by Demitri Papolos M.D. and Janice Papolos), followed by wall to wall media coverage—Oprah, Time, 20/20, Dan Rather—took the country by storm.
Worse yet is the treatment regimen for children stemming from this false diagnosis. Two major drugs: Lithium and Valproate.
Adverse effects of Valproate include:
acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;
life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;
Adverse effects of Lithium include:
intercranial pressure leading to blindness;
peripheral circulatory collapse;
stupor and coma.
Bipolar disorder has been diagnosed in children as young as two.
But this is not the first time an arbitrary psychiatric diagnosis has been made on children (or adults), then leading to the administration of highly dangerous drugs.
I am prepared to speak extensively about ADHD and Ritalin, and depression and Prozac (Paxil, Zoloft). Those two scenarios are strikingly similar to pediatric bipolar disorder.
Two vital facts:
In the years 2006-2008, a staggering 7.6% of American children were diagnosed with ADHD. (Source: Pediatrics, May 23, 2011)
27 million Americans are taking antidepressants. (Source: Archives of General Psychiatry, 8/4/2009)
In what sense is all this population control? When you move in on the mind and make arbitrary diagnoses and follow up with highly toxic drugs, you are essentially waging war on the brain. These figures should indicate the scope of that ever-expanding war.
Call it profit-seeking, call it pseudo-science, call it incompetence. There are many ways to frame the issue. But the effects are no different from what happens on a battlefield. Great and lasting damage. And professional ignorance is no excuse, because these facts are out in the open, for anyone to examine.
Recent reports indicate the cost of doing a complete genetic workup on a patient is rapidly falling. Combine this with the fact that there is a whole field of research called "psychiatric genetics," and you
realize these researchers intend to pin all sorts of "mental disorders" on speculative gene investigations -- despite the fact that not one such mental disorder has ever been shown to exist, as a discrete entity, through any physical test. In other words, it's one fiction being built on another fiction. There is much to say about this house of cards.
