- Planet wide, psychiatrists have hooked over 100 million people on psychotropic drugs that bring in over $80 billion a year.
- Psychiatrists receive over $20 billion a year prescribing powerful psychotropic drugs to children for ADHD-just one of over 300 so-called “diseases” and “disorders” which have never been clinically proven to exist.
- Insurance companies pay out more than $69 billion dollars every year for psychiatric services, doubling the cost of medical insurance premiums. Meanwhile, psychiatry contains the highest incidence of fraud of all the “healing” professions.
- Psychiatrists electroshock 2 million people a year, killing 10,000. For $12 worth of electricity, American psychiatrists rake in $5 billion a year.
- Nearly twice as many Americans have died in government psychiatric hospitals alone in the past four decades than in ALL U.S. wars since 1776.
- While raking in over $2 trillion dollars every year, psychiatrists cannot point to a single cure.
The attack on education was essential to psychiatry’s future because in the schools psychiatrists and psychologists could turn the next generation into lifelong customers of their psychiatric drugs. Today, teachers are required to evaluate their students not on academic performance, but against a checklist of behaviors based on psychiatry’s diagnostic manual. In the past 40 years, money doled out to psychiatrists and psychologists to improve literacy in our schools has soared to more than $28 billion dollars. While through those same 40 years functional literacy rates have plunged.
