- The Facts:Mental Health Disorders, in the eyes of big pharma, are a huge money making scam. This is intertwined with the serious issue of mental health and the factors that may be leading to it.
- Reflect On:Why is the main treatment being pushed prescription drugs? Have you researched things like diet and other activities for treating mental health issues? Do these issues reflect how humanity feels about the current state of our world?
Pediatric vaccines represent a $40 billion dollar market, and with emerging studies showing numerous causes for concern, coupled with the scientific fraud we’ve seen conducted by multiple pharmaceutical giants, it’s imperative that we really start to question the medicines being prescribed to us, and the influence that the medical industry has on manufacturing these medicines as well as providing medical education.
It’s truly a shame that for the majority of human history, various cultures developed and utilize natural medicines effectively, but with the birth of chemical medicine (via John D. Rockefeller), all of the traditional ‘hospitals’ were completely destroyed, along with their methods of treatment. This effort to maintain a monopoly on healing is still seen today with the multiple attacks that have occurred on holistic naturopathic medicine.
It’s been more than a decade since John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article entitled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.” It became one of the most widely accessed articles in academic history. Since then, numerous scientists and people within the field, from doctors to professors, from whistleblowers within major medical organizations and pharmaceutical companies to editors-in-chief of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have all been trying to create awareness around this issue.
Take doctor Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet, who publicly stated that most of the published research, possibly half of it, could be false due to corruption and scientific error. Arnold Seymour Relman, past editor -in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine has also expressed his disgust with regards to Big Pharma basically buying the medical industry. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) has also done the same thing, along with many others.
Then we have real-life documented examples of scientific fraud, whether that be pharmaceutical companies not disclosing the full results of their clinical trials, and downright lying about their medications in order to simply get them approved. And who is doing the approving? Government agencies and regulatory agencies who have extremely close ties to these companies. We clearly no longer live in a democracy, it’s become a corporatocracy.
Dr. Asseem Malhotra, a well-known doctor in Britain had some choice words to say in front of the European Parliament about modern-day medical education and overall knowledge doctors possess. He’s one of many who continues to emerge and speak out. You can read more about what he had to say, letting the world know that we have an “epidemic of misinformed doctors,” here, and you might also be interested in the following article, Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose Credibility.
Mental health is a HUGE money maker for the medical industry, and unfortunately, it’s highly targeted towards children. What I mean by that is that it seems so easy these days to label a child with ADD, ADHD, or even with ASD, depression, anxiety disorders and more. As a result, many of these children are medicated, and there are lots of them. Coupled with this initiative is a massive mental health awareness campaign that’s basically being used as propaganda to further perpetuate the problem.
When it comes to these labels, something that’s never really discussed are the financial ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. It was never really investigated until American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others decided to take the initiative. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members, more than half (large number) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry.
One hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing:
The DSM appears to be more a political document than a scientific one. Each diagnostic criteria in the DSM is not based on medical science. No blood tests exist for the disorders in the DSMN. It relies on judgements from practitioners who rely on the manual. – Lisa Cosgrove, PdD, Professor of Counselling and School Psycyhology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.

$16 Trillion By 2030
This is very concerning, especially because mental health disorders are expected to cost the global economy approximately $16 trillion a year by the time we hit 2030. As the Daily Mail reports, this comes as a result of the collective failure to respond to this global health crisis, which will result in monumental loss of human capabilities and avoidable suffering.
Although the information above goes to show how much of a fraud a large part of the mental health industry represents, it’s a real growing problem, and we continue to simply pad the problem with medications instead of addressing the actual causes. These include our food, the heavy metals present in the environment, air quality, pesticides, pollution, trauma and a whole lot more. It seems these are never addressed, and when they are, it seems there is a harsh opposition to accept some of these things as the actual cause.
This is because if true, a complete change would come for many. Take Monsanto, for example: what happens if the pesticides they produce, spray, and approve for use with their collusion inside of the government are actually causing multiple diseases? This means a shutdown of an entire company, and billions/trillions of dollars lost.
The $16 trillion cost was estimated from World Bank data based on the loss to the global economy if people of a working age suffer from mental health problems.
‘Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care, into action,’ Professor Vikram said.
Around 13.5 million deaths, including suicides, could be avoided globally every year if more money was invested into mental health, the authors estimate.
The Commission also urged low and middle-income countries to raise their spending on mental health from less than one per cent of their healthcare budget to at least five per cent.
The report, which was launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, claimed people with mental illness still suffer ‘gross human rights violations’ in many countries.
‘Human rights violations and abuses persist in many countries, with large numbers of people locked away in mental institutions or prisons, or living on the streets, often without legal protection,’ the report, which was put together by 28 experts, claims.
It Shouldn’t Cost So Much
In fact, money is not even the answer. These figures come from multiple costs, but mainly from the cost of medications. Medications when it comes to mental health issues are iffy at best. The very fact that we can’t see chemical flows on the brain from which apparently many mental health disorders arise, should ring off alarm bells in the heads of most people.
It because the only imbalances we know of in the brains of people called mental patients are the ones inflicted on them by the psychiatric drugs. We make a false claim that they have biochemical imbalances and then we give them biochemical imbalances. There is much we don’t understand about ‘mental illness.’
Why shouldn’t it cost so much? Because mental health interventions that show success deal with mindfulness, talking about emotions, thoughts and feelings. Meditation can help, and multiple therapies that don’t involve medication exist. The sad thing about this is that people who has been diagnosed with mental health issues are not provided with any options or resources other than a medication recommendation from their physician. For the most part, the physician doesn’t really know what is going on.
The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.
The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.” – Dr. Peter Gotzsche (source)
Question what you read and hear. We have massive mental health campaigns happening right now to create awareness of the problem, but none of these campaigns address the issues mentioned above, and it seems the medical industry, in general, is never questioned at all. In my opinion, mental health disorders and diagnoses represent the heart of medical fraud.
It’s important to recognize the increase in environmental factors mentioned in the article that are no doubt contributing to mental illness. Furthermore, it’s important to address the fact that we are never advised or taught how to deal with trauma, our emotions and our feelings while growing up. We learn how to memorize, we don’t learn how to empathize. Reversing this would assist in coping with the modern day mental health epidemic we see today.
