Psychiatrists admit that their diagnoses of mental disorders are not based upon scientific knowledge, nor do they rely upon the objectivity of pathology, or the rigorous scrutiny of scientific testing.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is made up, it is fiction, it is fabricated by psychiatrists. Members of a panel vote on what goes into it, then they immediately start diagnosing the newly declared ‘diseases’. This is fraud. Despite the lack of evidence to support them, hundreds of millions of prescriptions are written, worldwide, for devastatingly dangerous, but highly profitable, psychiatric drugs.
Psychiatrists and psychologists use the DSM to label 450 million people worldwide as mentally ill, a total equal to the populations of France, Italy, Germany, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Russia, combined.
It is arguable that psychiatry is, therefore, the most dangerous fraud in health care.
The current version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5),was released in May 2013 at the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting. It is worth knowing that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, despite its name, does not contain statistics.
Thanks to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, for alerting me to this video, which was released in 2008, while DSM-5 was being invented.
