    Considering that the Pentagon is a big cow most vested interests are intent on milking (see Arrigo's Cases 1-17), I am beginning to suspect that such a video was conveniently "leaked" as a piece of propaganda (see this post <---) to cover up this more serious weapon which, incidentally, works better on drugged individuals: Must Read: The Matrix Deciphered by Dr Robert Duncan

    Actually, FB would be a good test to determine if it's an intentional propaganda or a real leak...

    The role of "antidepressants" (i.e. "stimulants") in the psychotronic war as delineated by Dr. Robert Duncan in his PDF book "The Matrix Deciphered":


    Quote Ghost Busting - Baiting the Weapons Testers
    It is merely speculation as to why the traitorous CIA/DoD weapons testers choose most of the people that they do. Everyone asks, "Why me? I'm nobody." That may be exactly one of the criteria. One rough breakdown of the people targeted by the weapon is: 70% random selection, 5% government whistle blowers, 5% outspoken liberal activists, 10% DoD scientists who worked on secret technologies, 10% lifestyle choices, < 1% appear to be real targets like Saddam Hussein. So one method that one undercover American hero might use to bait the shadow government is by taking a combination of L-dopa and serotonin reuptake inhibitors which would increase neurotransmitter secretion or their reuptake and thereby would make them more "psychic" temporarily. Since it appears like they try to find brains that are responsive to a low power level, this might be a method to bait them. L-dopa, a synthetic dopamine neurotransmitter analogue, would increase synaptic activity and thereby amplify any reception of small radio/microwave/magnetic/electric informationally, coherent signals. The excess neurotransmitter in the synaptic junctions helps amplify any precise external modulation of neurotransmitter release. At high frequency pulsed modulated with extremely low frequencies representing neuronal connections one will find several energy and information transfer mechanisms. Sony has patents using ultrasonic energy transfer into brain tissue for future virtual reality video gaming. That's a different method but effective. The undercover hero would be a very appealing subject for the weapons testers due to the ability to discredit him/her thinking that they were natural psychotics and view them as someone who has gone beyond the allowable threshold of sensitivity. Perhaps there is a TEMPEST threshold for human brains. I can only speculate as to why there appears to be a threshold. Perhaps psychic spies use it and everyone who goes beyond it, the US views as a potential threat. It may be that that person begins to pick up on EEG heterodyning signals meant for other people and would be considered a threat. That is only speculation though as to the motives behind it. There may in fact be no threshold that is searched for and simply directed focused energy can compensate for different natural energy amplification levels.

    ADD and Ritalin
    I am only speculating here about the increased need for Ritalin due to ADD in children. I do not have any proof of this yet. But the training of the psychic army (or mind controllers) has stepped up its intensity about every 4 years, probably in accordance with budget increases. No one is except from being selected, including children and the elderly. One of the bad side effects of being in a hive mind and remote neurally linked is attention deficit disorder, ADD. The number of children put on Ritalin has escalated in correlation with the growing army. There is evidence that stimulants like Ritalin change the amplification of external stimuli in the brain and alter the brains neurochemistry sufficiently to break an EEG cloning lock. The new brainwaves would need to be remapped to create a more effective lock on. Usually the mapping process just occurs at the beginning of a project and is not revisited later. EEG cloning is most effective on subjects that are sensory deprived. Stimulants, like caffeine, act to increase the amplification of sensory stimuli and thereby diminish the influence of the electromagnetic signals relative to internal and sensory brain signals. Another speculation I have with regards to stimulants increasing or decreasing the effectiveness of EEG heterodyning weapons, is the Air Force has been experimenting with stimulants on their fighter pilots. There have been a couple of reported cases where a fighter pilot was given an amphetamine drink before combat. They accidentally fired on allies. Could this have been a test to see if errors of judgment through EEG heterodyning could be defeated through stimulants?
    Quote The Psychology of “Crazy”
    It is interesting to poll people as to what they believe “crazy” means. The average person’s intuitive understanding of the word usually means to do or say something very unusual or bazaar. Geniuses and eccentrics have throughout history been called crazy. My father is a very conservative man, and he calls about a third of everyone he meets crazy. People who visit San Francisco from a conservative culture, thinks the whole city is crazy. The trend that I have found is that less worldly experiences one has, the more often one judges behavior that is not native to their own culture as some form of mental illness. This is clearly an error to believe that something that has not been thought, heard, or seen before is some kind of pathology of the mind. When one has many errors of thinking, it could be classified as mental illness, unless the errors of thinking are being induced electromagnetically through TAMI. Stop the signal and the brain will regain its normal processing. But this is an important psychological observation, that these discrediting tactics are regularly and historically used by the CIA and Psychlops. Create a scenario that is so improbable like government goon squads or being abducted and tortured, and the majority of people will think the person reporting it is crazy, simply because it is so unusual. Imagine if you were one of Jeffrey Dahlmer’s victims, and you escaped and you told a story about a man who eats dead people, keeps them in his fridge, and drills holes in their heads to try and create a sex zombie to the police. We know this happened, but the police would most likely have locked you up in the psyche ward for showing delusional symptoms. In fact, the police returned a boy who was bleeding from his head, naked, confused, and didn’t speak English very well, back to Jeffrey Dahlmer and within ten minutes after the police returned the kid, he killed and ate him. Jeffrey Dahlmer used the same tactics as the CIA successfully. Of two possible scenarios which was more believable? Jeffery told the police that he and the boy were fighting, homosexual lovers.

    So this is how the game is played. Get some famous psychologists on your payroll. Have them create new mental illness like “Thought Sonorization”. And you can label anyone as mentally ill who speaks about the “voice of god” weapons, microwave hearing effect, mind reading radar, or ultrasonic heterodyning technologies that you wish to keep out of the population’s awareness. As time progresses over the decades, the new mental illness will gain more credibility due to its age and number of people reporting it.

    I tracked back several “mental illnesses” to the same time frame as TAMI came on line and to known mind control monster psychologists on the CIA payroll like Cameron. This has allowed the human effects weapons testing industry on the population to expand and go unrecognized. One percent of the population has schizophrenia. According to some psychological studies, over 20% of the population has some form of mental illness. Perhaps the categories are getting too broad. See the appendix for my facetious comments on many popular illnesses. What percentage of those classified as mentally ill are genetic and environmentally caused, and what percent is government menticide? The two groups overlap significantly. Through my protected sources, I was told that government weapons testers look for brain waves that show three traits that they want. One is an amplification factor of neurons often found in dopamine excessive brains. This group has traditionally been known to exhibit psychosis. The other is brain entrainment inducibility indicative of a high susceptibility to hypnosis. The third is the uniqueness of the brain waves to add to the database which increases the effectiveness of TAMI for other people. Other factors for target selection include the ease of discrediting and isolating the victim. Of course being a disobedient politician or a government whistle blower will increase your chances of being thrust into the virtual hell and beginning your journey into madness. There is no other word for this program other than diabolical.

    Can you feel the pride of being American coursing through your veins?

    Psychopathy and sociopathy for human weapons effects experimentation is not uniquely found in serial killers and government agencies. But it is the worst and truest form of mental illness.

    ... then one wonders why all these "Zombies" movies and FEMA drills have anything to do with reality...

    From http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/01/health/more-diagnoses-of-hyperactivity-causing-concern.html?_r=1&: The cultivating of the new army of zombies:


    A.D.H.D. Seen in 11% of U.S. Children as Diagnoses Rise



    By Channon Hodge, Ben Werschkul, Alyssa Kim and Erica Berenstein
    A.D.H.D. Diagnoses Worry Doctors: The Times’s Alan Schwarz on doctors’ growing concern about the skyrocketing use of A.D.H.D. medications in children.

    By ALAN SCHWARZ and SARAH COHEN
    Published: March 31, 2013 1162 Comments

    Nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11 percent of school-age children over all have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    These rates reflect a marked rise over the last decade and could fuel growing concern among many doctors that the A.D.H.D. diagnosis and its medication are overused in American children.

    The figures showed that an estimated 6.4 million children ages 4 through 17 had received an A.D.H.D. diagnosis at some point in their lives, a 16 percent increase since 2007 and a 41 percent rise in the past decade. About two-thirds of those with a current diagnosis receive prescriptions for stimulants like Ritalin or Adderall, which can drastically improve the lives of those with A.D.H.D. but can also lead to addiction, anxiety and occasionally psychosis.

    “Those are astronomical numbers. I’m floored,” said Dr. William Graf, a pediatric neurologist in New Haven and a professor at the Yale School of Medicine. He added, “Mild symptoms are being diagnosed so readily, which goes well beyond the disorder and beyond the zone of ambiguity to pure enhancement of children who are otherwise healthy.”

    And even more teenagers are likely to be prescribed medication in the near future because the American Psychiatric Association plans to change the definition of A.D.H.D. to allow more people to receive the diagnosis and treatment. A.D.H.D. is described by most experts as resulting from abnormal chemical levels in the brain that impair a person’s impulse control and attention skills.

    While some doctors and patient advocates have welcomed rising diagnosis rates as evidence that the disorder is being better recognized and accepted, others said the new rates suggest that millions of children may be taking medication merely to calm behavior or to do better in school. Pills that are shared with or sold to classmates — diversion long tolerated in college settings and gaining traction in high-achieving high schools — are particularly dangerous, doctors say, because of their health risks when abused.

    The findings were part of a broader C.D.C. study of children’s health issues, taken from February 2011 to June 2012. The agency interviewed more than 76,000 parents nationwide by both cellphone and landline and is currently compiling its reports. The New York Times obtained the raw data from the agency and compiled the results.
    A.D.H.D. has historically been estimated to affect 3 to 7 percent of children. The disorder has no definitive test and is determined only by speaking extensively with patients, parents and teachers, and ruling out other possible causes — a subjective process that is often skipped under time constraints and pressure from parents. It is considered a chronic condition that is often carried into adulthood.

    The C.D.C. director, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, likened the rising rates of stimulant prescriptions among children to the overuse of pain medications and antibiotics in adults.

    “We need to ensure balance,” Dr. Frieden said. “The right medications for A.D.H.D., given to the right people, can make a huge difference. Unfortunately, misuse appears to be growing at an alarming rate.”

    Experts cited several factors in the rising rates. Some doctors are hastily viewing any complaints of inattention as full-blown A.D.H.D., they said, while pharmaceutical advertising emphasizes how medication can substantially improve a child’s life. Moreover, they said, some parents are pressuring doctors to help with their children’s troublesome behavior and slipping grades.

    “There’s a tremendous push where if the kid’s behavior is thought to be quote-unquote abnormal — if they’re not sitting quietly at their desk — that’s pathological, instead of just childhood,” said Dr. Jerome Groopman, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the author of “How Doctors Think.”

    Fifteen percent of school-age boys have received an A.D.H.D. diagnosis, the data showed; the rate for girls was 7 percent. Diagnoses among those of high-school age — 14 to 17 — were particularly high, 10 percent for girls and 19 percent for boys. About one in 10 high-school boys currently takes A.D.H.D. medication, the data showed.

    Rates by state are less precise but vary widely. Southern states, like Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee, showed about 23 percent of school-age boys receiving an A.D.H.D. diagnosis. The rates in Colorado and Nevada were less than 10 percent.

    The medications — primarily Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta and Vyvanse — often afford those with severe A.D.H.D. the concentration and impulse control to lead relatively normal lives. Because the pills can vastly improve focus and drive among those with perhaps only traces of the disorder, an A.D.H.D. diagnosis has become a popular shortcut to better grades, some experts said, with many students unaware of or disregarding the medication’s health risks.

    “There’s no way that one in five high-school boys has A.D.H.D.,” said James Swanson, a professor of psychiatry at Florida International University and one of the primary A.D.H.D. researchers in the last 20 years. “If we start treating children who do not have the disorder with stimulants, a certain percentage are going to have problems that are predictable — some of them are going to end up with abuse and dependence. And with all those pills around, how much of that actually goes to friends? Some studies have said it’s about 30 percent.”

    An A.D.H.D. diagnosis often results in a family’s paying for a child’s repeated visits to doctors for assessments or prescription renewals. Taxpayers assume this cost for children covered by Medicaid, who, according to the C.D.C. data, have among the highest rates of A.D.H.D. diagnoses: 14 percent for school-age children, about one-third higher than the rest of the population.

    Several doctors mentioned that advertising from the pharmaceutical industry that played off parents’ fears — showing children struggling in school or left without friends — encouraged parents and doctors to call even minor symptoms A.D.H.D. and try stimulant treatment. For example, a pamphlet for Vyvanse from its manufacturer, Shire, shows a parent looking at her son and saying, “I want to do all I can to help him succeed.”

    Sales of stimulants to treat A.D.H.D. have more than doubled to $9 billion in 2012 from $4 billion in 2007, according to the health care information company IMS Health.
    Criteria for the proper diagnosis of A.D.H.D., to be released next month in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, have been changed specifically to allow more adolescents and adults to qualify for a diagnosis, according to several people involved in the discussions.

    The final wording has not been released, but most proposed changes would lead to higher rates of diagnosis: the requirement that symptoms appeared before age 12 rather than 7; illustrations, like repeatedly losing one’s cellphone or losing focus during paperwork, that emphasize that A.D.H.D. is not just a young child’s disorder; and the requirement that symptoms merely “impact” daily activities, rather than cause “impairment.”

    An analysis of the proposed changes published in January by the Journal of Learning Disabilities concluded: “These wording changes newly diagnose individuals who display symptoms of A.D.H.D. but continue to function acceptably in their daily lives."Given that severe A.D.H.D. that goes untreated has been shown to increase a child’s risk for academic failure and substance abuse, doctors have historically focused on raising awareness of the disorder and reducing fears surrounding stimulant medication.

    A leading voice has been Dr. Ned Hallowell, a child psychiatrist and author of best-selling books on the disorder. But in a recent interview, Dr. Hallowell said that the new C.D.C. data, combined with recent news reports of young people abusing stimulants, left him assessing his role.

    Whereas Dr. Hallowell for years would reassure skeptical parents by telling them that Adderall and other stimulants were “safer than aspirin,” he said last week, “I regret the analogy” and he “won’t be saying that again.” And while he still thinks that many children with A.D.H.D. continue to go unrecognized and untreated, he said the high rates demonstrate how the diagnosis is being handed out too freely.

    “I think now’s the time to call attention to the dangers that can be associated with making the diagnosis in a slipshod fashion,” he said. “That we have kids out there getting these drugs to use them as mental steroids — that’s dangerous, and I hate to think I have a hand in creating that problem.”

    Rates of A.D.H.D. Diagnosis in Children



    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 1, 2013

    An earlier version of the headline with this article referred incorrectly to the rate of A.D.H.D. diagnosis in boys in the United States. Nearly one in five high school age boys have been diagnosed, not boys of all ages.

    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 2, 2013

    A headline on Monday about the marked rise in diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, described incorrectly the disorder that saw the increase. It is A.D.H.D. — not hyperactivity, which is present in only a portion of A.D.H.D. cases. The article also misidentified the organization that plans to change the definition of A.D.H.D. to allow more people to receive the diagnosis and treatment. It is the American Psychiatric Association, not the American Psychological Association.

    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 3, 2013

    An article on Monday about the marked rise in diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder misstated the increase in the past decade of children ages 4 through 17 diagnosed with A.D.H.D. at some point in their lives. It is 41 percent, not 53 percent.

    Many good people who live with serious mental illnesses like bipolar, schizoaffective disorder and schizophrenia are able to get into recovery and live stable lives thanks to anti-psychotic medication. I have a family member who lives with schizophrenia and I can assure you that anti-psychotic meds are making a big positive difference in her life.

    I do think that there are probably millions of people who live with a variety of mild or moderate mental illnesses (for example mild depression, mild anxiety, etc) who are very likely over-medicated. I am actually against over-medication and unnecessary medication for people who are otherwise quite functional. There are many extremely effective non-drug interventions for mild mental illnesses like mild depression and mild anxiety and those wholistic approached should definitely be used before resorting to drugs. For example, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is just one non-drug therapy that is extremely effective at treating mild and moderate depression.

    However, knowing first hand how my relative and her family suffered when she was ill (in full psychosis) and not medicated, and seeing her vast improvement now, I am troubled whenever I read sweeping attacks on psychiatric drugs.

    Some of the sickest of the sick people in society really need those drugs to function. and anti-psychotics can mean the difference between life and death for people who live with serious mental illnesses like bipolar, schizoaffective disorder and schizophrenia.

    Thank you Amzer Zo.

    As I said in my post I am actually against over-medication and I fully support wholistic approaches and alternative approaches to dealing with mild and moderate mental illnesses. That is a point of agreement between us.

    But I also said something important that bears repeating.

    There is an important and vital distinction between those who live with a variety of moderate mental illnesses (such as mild depression and ADHD, etc.) and those who live with serious mental illnesses like bipolar, schizoaffective disorder and schizophrenia.

    Serious mental illness is extremely disabling. Many people who live with serious mental illness have experienced losing their homes, their friends, their jobs, their schooling. Many people who live with serious mental illness find themselves in jail for crimes they commit when they are not in their right minds (when they are experiencing psychosis).

    People who live with mild mental illnesses can for the most part function. They can keep a roof over their heads, they can keep relationships going, they can usually keep their jobs. Many people in the psychiatric survivor movement are in this category. Many are vocally against psychiatric meds because they themselves are not sick enough to need them. Therefore, it is easy to silence, stigmatize and marginalize the 1% of the population, the sickest of the sick, who really do need them.

    I speak as one who lives in the trenches with serious mental illness. I personally know (in real life, not just online) dozens of people who live with schizophrenia and all of those I know who are currently persuing a psycho-social recovery model and getting on with their lives in a positive way are also taking anti-psychotic medications.

    Hi northstar,

    I am not disagreeing with you.

    All I am saying is that such medications are a palliative and misdirection from uncovering the real root of such states and therefore preventing the discovery and/or applications of less lucrative cures; while creating an army of zombies out of a generation rendered psychotronic-sensitive.

    All I am saying is that such medications are a palliative and misdirection from uncovering the real root of such states and therefore preventing the discovery and/or applications of less lucrative cures; while creating an army of zombies out of a generation rendered psychotronic-sensitive.

    Amzer Zo, I suspect that you may not have read a broad spectrum of literature on this issue.

    And regarding your blanket characterization of my bright and beloved family member who lives with schizophrenia as a "zombie", shame on you. It is actually stigmatizing language like that which keeps people who live with severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder and bipolar silent and marginalized.

    It is language like that which heaps stigma and shame on their families, in addition to the heavy burden of daily issues which they also deal with.

    Of the many, many bright, brave and beautiful souls I know personally, (in real life) who live with schizophrenia, I cannot honestly say I would characterize any one of them as a "zombie". Rather, they are individuals struggling with an extremely serious illness, as well as struggling with a heavy burden of stigmatization and social prejudice.
    The 'rebellion' of the Mind, having the Mind run the show, is the Luciferian rebellion of wanting to leave Love-Christ-Heart behind and create a universe without the 'pesky feeling of the heart' holding it back

    Hi northstar,

    It seems to me you misunderstood what I wrote, the "zombie" comes from the generation that's being prepared and which is made susceptible to psychotronic mind control and behaviour control via said psychotronic remote controlling.

    You would have to read that PDF "The Matrix Deciphered" to understand my simplified statement.

    No offense was intended and apologies if that occurred.

    AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL - I quit. Too much military and pharmaceutical corruption!!

    I was not okay with what was happening at the high school I taught at, so I quit. My bus. technology position was eliminated and they put me down the street before that. (GED prep - housed with childcare and family program)

    NOW (I went back as a substitute) they have a CLINIC ON CAMPUS. One student actually said to me as he was showing me the note to go to the clinic: "Ms. A, I'm going to tell them that don't want to be on Prozac." I was calm with him, but my heart hit the ceiling.

    I had already been put off when they gave us a teaching instrument promoting flu shots. Clearly opinions were presented as facts. I did not participate. Soon after is when I tendered my resignation from my full-time job.

    I went to the clinic as an innocent observer, past teacher wondering about it all. I got the tour. Then I asked the most important question on my heart: "Do you get a permission slip for each visit or just one at the beginning of the year?"

    ANSWER: Just one at the beginning of the year.

    WHAT? Parents are not even necessarily aware when their children are prescribed psycho-tropic drugs or other medications? The year before they couldn't even get an aspirin without permission.

    WAKE UP THE PARENTS!!

    Don't even start me about what I observed in the mental conditioning of the students in terms of the military presence.

    MANDATORY EDUCATION SHOULD BE ILLEGAL when these immoral and unethical, inhumane practices are present.

    I intend to raise awareness around what is happening through my own personal experience and evidence. (No theory here, name callers from the conditioned mindset.)

    Get our children out of the American high schools. Home school. Have them learn skills from the internet or vocational schools. Get skills, use talents, find your inner genius and use it! That's what I tell them.

    I'm creating alternative educational programs that are inspiring. I just moved and need to gather resources, then I'll move forward.

    Thanks so much for this thread!

    Love,
    Michelle Marie

    "Rampant over-prescribing of drugs contributes to a system that is better at producing disorders than rectifying them."

    Last Modified: 10 Apr 2013 09:49

    Belen Fernandez


    "Standard psychiatric diagnoses… do not correspond to meaningful clusters of symptoms in the real world" and can counter-productively result in "further stigma, discrimination and social exclusion" for their recipients [Reuters]


    In a recent article on the BBC News website, Professor Peter Kinderman - head of the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society at the University of Liverpool - warns that the forthcoming edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual "will lower many diagnostic thresholds and increase the number of people in the general population seen as having a mental illness".

    According to Kinderman, the manual - scheduled for publication in May 2013 - constitutes a dangerous effort to pathologise emotions and other symptoms of human existence and will exacerbate the rampant over-prescribing of drugs that already occurs "despite significant side-effects and poor evidence of their effectiveness".

    The practice of attributing emotional distress and other phenomena to alleged cerebral/biological abnormalities rather than to social and psychological causes, writes Kinderman, is particularly problematic: "Standard psychiatric diagnoses… do not correspond to meaningful clusters of symptoms in the real world" and can counter-productively result in "further stigma, discrimination and social exclusion" for their recipients.

    Regarding the impending updates to the psychiatric manual, Kinderman notes that "[t]he new diagnosis of 'disruptive mood dysregulation disorder' will turn childhood temper tantrums into symptoms of a mental illness", while relaxed criteria for "generalised anxiety disorder" will turn "the worries of everyday life into targets for medical treatment". Normal grief will undergo conversion into "major depressive disorder". Additional cutting-edge maladies will include "internet addiction" and "sex addiction".

    No guidelines are apparently provided as to how to go about diagnosing societies that obsessively pathologise routine aspects of individual life.


    Societal diagnostics
    Incidentally, the tendency toward over-diagnosis and over-prescription that dominates the mental health care scene in the US contributes to a system that is better at producing disorders than rectifying them.

    For example, it is not difficult to see how anxiety that otherwise would not be present can be generated by inculcating persons with the fear that something is always wrong with them and that it requires purchase of a substance, service, or gadget to fix - a process aided by ubiquitous advertising for antidepressants.

    The profitable endurance of the depression industry in particular is presumably ensured by the very nature of contemporary society - not least by the isolation of the individual who has been conditioned to believe that self-made success and material gains trump inter-human bonds in importance.

    To be sure, neoliberal policies dependent on the obstruction of communal solidarity facilitate a mass alienation from human reality and deprive individuals of psychological support networks enjoyed in certain other cultures.

    It could be argued that alienation in the US begins at birth, an event too often characterised by scheduled Caesarean sections, the immediate removal of newborns from the vicinity of their mothers in defiance of natural bonding needs, and hospital distribution of infant formula encouraging mothers to simplify their lives by administering expensive and potentially toxic material to their offspring rather than the free nutrition that is generally located in their own breasts.

    And it is pretty much downhill from there.

    Sequestration will damage US social safety net
    The "socialisation" process of children increasingly involves fundamentally anti-socialising activities such as video games and other technological distractions, the all-pervasiveness of which renders the proliferation of attention deficit disorder somewhat less than surprising. Of course, this does not stop ADD from being treated by and large as an individual mental defect rather than a societally induced condition.

    Energetic children are reformed into automatons via the fanatical prescription of pharmaceuticals with side effects ranging from depression to sudden death, while a cultural insistence on individual triumph and competition over collaboration likely contributes to such manifestations of emotional insecurity as the institutionalised practice of bullying at US schools.

    Luckily for drug companies and other entities that profit from mental disturbance, the New York Times reported in February with regard to victims of bullying and bullies themselves that "researchers have found that [an] elevated risk of psychiatric trouble extends into adulthood, sometimes even a decade after the intimidation has ended".

    Disconnecting from the human condition
    My own personal experience with mental health issues in the US includes a prolonged panic attack I suffered in high school in the late 90s. Convinced for a period of six months that I was on the verge of spontaneous death, I would hyperventilate, unceasingly check my pulse, and hide in bathroom stalls.

    After later living abroad for many years in locations less estranged from reality, I concluded that the attacks had been hypochondriac fallout of extreme anxiety over the possibility of stigmatisation by society for exhibiting any indication of physical or psychological weakness - such as anxiety itself.

    Of course, the structure and habits of other societies and cultures can also have adverse effects on the human nervous system; however, the position of the US as global superpower means that its acute unhinging from humanity contains worldwide ramifications.

    For example, the mass production of isolated persons lacking empathy naturally facilitates the frequent military devastation of populations abroad - a hobby that has been deemed more lucrative than, say, providing health care to US children.

    The agricultural imperialism of US-based corporations like Monsanto, patron saint of the genetic modification of food, has also proved an effective means of global population control, facilitating the suicide of hundreds of thousands of farmers in India.

    Obviously, a nutritional reliance on modified and artificial ingredients and other materials that do not technically qualify as food does not bode well for biological - and therefore also psychological - processes.

    The quest for profit at the expense of the functioning of the body is further evidence of the US disconnect from the human condition, which is reinforced by schizophrenic electronic multi-tasking and the general reduction of interpersonal relations to a barrage of mobile phone beeps and Facebook notifications.

    In my interview last year with renowned Indian essayist Pankaj Mishra, he commented on the contemporary deterioration of the human essence:
    "Our capacity for uncritical love has been expended recklessly in recent years on the free market… This was the false god we were instructed to worship during the era of globalisation and most of us duly obliged, even the least resourceful and economically underprivileged peoples, dazzled by our new goods and gadgets, the routinely updated models of mobile phones… [Now] we can see more clearly how a tiny minority has enriched itself, leaving many others feeling cheated, and exposed to deprivation and suffering."
    Professor Kinderman notes in his BBC News article on mental illness that therapy constitutes a "humane and effective alternative… to traditional psychiatric diagnoses".

    Any truly effective therapeutic approach, however, would require a thorough examination of the inhumane context in which minds function - and, presumably, a comprehensive systemic rewiring.

    A.D.H.D. Seen in 11% of U.S. Children as Diagnoses Rise



    By Channon Hodge, Ben Werschkul, Alyssa Kim and Erica Berenstein
    A.D.H.D. Diagnoses Worry Doctors: The Times’s Alan Schwarz on doctors’ growing concern about the skyrocketing use of A.D.H.D. medications in children.

    By ALAN SCHWARZ and SARAH COHEN
    Published: March 31, 2013 1162 Comments

    Nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11 percent of school-age children over all have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    These rates reflect a marked rise over the last decade and could fuel growing concern among many doctors that the A.D.H.D. diagnosis and its medication are overused in American children.

    The figures showed that an estimated 6.4 million children ages 4 through 17 had received an A.D.H.D. diagnosis at some point in their lives, a 16 percent increase since 2007 and a 41 percent rise in the past decade. About two-thirds of those with a current diagnosis receive prescriptions for stimulants like Ritalin or Adderall, which can drastically improve the lives of those with A.D.H.D. but can also lead to addiction, anxiety and occasionally psychosis.

    “Those are astronomical numbers. I’m floored,” said Dr. William Graf, a pediatric neurologist in New Haven and a professor at the Yale School of Medicine. He added, “Mild symptoms are being diagnosed so readily, which goes well beyond the disorder and beyond the zone of ambiguity to pure enhancement of children who are otherwise healthy.”

    And even more teenagers are likely to be prescribed medication in the near future because the American Psychiatric Association plans to change the definition of A.D.H.D. to allow more people to receive the diagnosis and treatment. A.D.H.D. is described by most experts as resulting from abnormal chemical levels in the brain that impair a person’s impulse control and attention skills.

    While some doctors and patient advocates have welcomed rising diagnosis rates as evidence that the disorder is being better recognized and accepted, others said the new rates suggest that millions of children may be taking medication merely to calm behavior or to do better in school. Pills that are shared with or sold to classmates — diversion long tolerated in college settings and gaining traction in high-achieving high schools — are particularly dangerous, doctors say, because of their health risks when abused.

    The findings were part of a broader C.D.C. study of children’s health issues, taken from February 2011 to June 2012. The agency interviewed more than 76,000 parents nationwide by both cellphone and landline and is currently compiling its reports. The New York Times obtained the raw data from the agency and compiled the results.
    A.D.H.D. has historically been estimated to affect 3 to 7 percent of children. The disorder has no definitive test and is determined only by speaking extensively with patients, parents and teachers, and ruling out other possible causes — a subjective process that is often skipped under time constraints and pressure from parents. It is considered a chronic condition that is often carried into adulthood.

    The C.D.C. director, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, likened the rising rates of stimulant prescriptions among children to the overuse of pain medications and antibiotics in adults.

    “We need to ensure balance,” Dr. Frieden said. “The right medications for A.D.H.D., given to the right people, can make a huge difference. Unfortunately, misuse appears to be growing at an alarming rate.”

    Experts cited several factors in the rising rates. Some doctors are hastily viewing any complaints of inattention as full-blown A.D.H.D., they said, while pharmaceutical advertising emphasizes how medication can substantially improve a child’s life. Moreover, they said, some parents are pressuring doctors to help with their children’s troublesome behavior and slipping grades.

    “There’s a tremendous push where if the kid’s behavior is thought to be quote-unquote abnormal — if they’re not sitting quietly at their desk — that’s pathological, instead of just childhood,” said Dr. Jerome Groopman, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the author of “How Doctors Think.”

    Fifteen percent of school-age boys have received an A.D.H.D. diagnosis, the data showed; the rate for girls was 7 percent. Diagnoses among those of high-school age — 14 to 17 — were particularly high, 10 percent for girls and 19 percent for boys. About one in 10 high-school boys currently takes A.D.H.D. medication, the data showed.

    Rates by state are less precise but vary widely. Southern states, like Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee, showed about 23 percent of school-age boys receiving an A.D.H.D. diagnosis. The rates in Colorado and Nevada were less than 10 percent.

    The medications — primarily Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta and Vyvanse — often afford those with severe A.D.H.D. the concentration and impulse control to lead relatively normal lives. Because the pills can vastly improve focus and drive among those with perhaps only traces of the disorder, an A.D.H.D. diagnosis has become a popular shortcut to better grades, some experts said, with many students unaware of or disregarding the medication’s health risks.

    “There’s no way that one in five high-school boys has A.D.H.D.,” said James Swanson, a professor of psychiatry at Florida International University and one of the primary A.D.H.D. researchers in the last 20 years. “If we start treating children who do not have the disorder with stimulants, a certain percentage are going to have problems that are predictable — some of them are going to end up with abuse and dependence. And with all those pills around, how much of that actually goes to friends? Some studies have said it’s about 30 percent.”

    An A.D.H.D. diagnosis often results in a family’s paying for a child’s repeated visits to doctors for assessments or prescription renewals. Taxpayers assume this cost for children covered by Medicaid, who, according to the C.D.C. data, have among the highest rates of A.D.H.D. diagnoses: 14 percent for school-age children, about one-third higher than the rest of the population.

    Several doctors mentioned that advertising from the pharmaceutical industry that played off parents’ fears — showing children struggling in school or left without friends — encouraged parents and doctors to call even minor symptoms A.D.H.D. and try stimulant treatment. For example, a pamphlet for Vyvanse from its manufacturer, Shire, shows a parent looking at her son and saying, “I want to do all I can to help him succeed.”

    Sales of stimulants to treat A.D.H.D. have more than doubled to $9 billion in 2012 from $4 billion in 2007, according to the health care information company IMS Health.
    Criteria for the proper diagnosis of A.D.H.D., to be released next month in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, have been changed specifically to allow more adolescents and adults to qualify for a diagnosis, according to several people involved in the discussions.

    The final wording has not been released, but most proposed changes would lead to higher rates of diagnosis: the requirement that symptoms appeared before age 12 rather than 7; illustrations, like repeatedly losing one’s cellphone or losing focus during paperwork, that emphasize that A.D.H.D. is not just a young child’s disorder; and the requirement that symptoms merely “impact” daily activities, rather than cause “impairment.”

    An analysis of the proposed changes published in January by the Journal of Learning Disabilities concluded: “These wording changes newly diagnose individuals who display symptoms of A.D.H.D. but continue to function acceptably in their daily lives."Given that severe A.D.H.D. that goes untreated has been shown to increase a child’s risk for academic failure and substance abuse, doctors have historically focused on raising awareness of the disorder and reducing fears surrounding stimulant medication.

    A leading voice has been Dr. Ned Hallowell, a child psychiatrist and author of best-selling books on the disorder. But in a recent interview, Dr. Hallowell said that the new C.D.C. data, combined with recent news reports of young people abusing stimulants, left him assessing his role.

    Whereas Dr. Hallowell for years would reassure skeptical parents by telling them that Adderall and other stimulants were “safer than aspirin,” he said last week, “I regret the analogy” and he “won’t be saying that again.” And while he still thinks that many children with A.D.H.D. continue to go unrecognized and untreated, he said the high rates demonstrate how the diagnosis is being handed out too freely.

    “I think now’s the time to call attention to the dangers that can be associated with making the diagnosis in a slipshod fashion,” he said. “That we have kids out there getting these drugs to use them as mental steroids — that’s dangerous, and I hate to think I have a hand in creating that problem.”

    Rates of A.D.H.D. Diagnosis in Children



    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 1, 2013

    An earlier version of the headline with this article referred incorrectly to the rate of A.D.H.D. diagnosis in boys in the United States. Nearly one in five high school age boys have been diagnosed, not boys of all ages.

    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 2, 2013

    A headline on Monday about the marked rise in diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, described incorrectly the disorder that saw the increase. It is A.D.H.D. — not hyperactivity, which is present in only a portion of A.D.H.D. cases. The article also misidentified the organization that plans to change the definition of A.D.H.D. to allow more people to receive the diagnosis and treatment. It is the American Psychiatric Association, not the American Psychological Association.

    This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
    Correction: April 3, 2013

    An article on Monday about the marked rise in diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder misstated the increase in the past decade of children ages 4 through 17 diagnosed with A.D.H.D. at some point in their lives. It is 41 percent, not 53 percent.

    I do not trust the CDC as a pure source of information due to personal experience in a public school situation (CDC uses public school venue to push flu shot) and information such as this:

    I do NOT trust their information. See the RED FLAGS!!!

    I DO NOT trust the CDC as a reliable source of unbiased information, rather than a pseudo expert organization that pushes agendas.

    I know. I've had personal experience as a teacher when my Heart/Truth Sensor went into ALARM mode when we were presented with a teaching instrument that was orchestrated to be delivered to all students at once, presented opinions as facts, and clearly represented an "agenda" and not in the best interests of the students whose minds were being purposely inculcated. NO! to the CDC and its negative effects on our children.

    Our new discernment is the ability to perceive impure motives directly. This light of awareness allows us to avoid the pitfalls and traps that are being laid.

    The power of TRUTH is setting us free.

    the whole psych drug problem will solve itself after the severe earch changes have begun and no more drugs are available to the general populace. it's a safe bet to say that lots of people who depend on "happy pills" and other psych drugs will either go into total mental breakdown mode (zombification) or simply kill themselves because their bodies don't function anymore without these drugs. either way, the problem will be its own solution. survival of the fittest will become the motto of the day again. souls will no longer be jailed in defective physical vehicles and be forced to suffer.

    Psychiatric profession has lost its mind

    Pete Papaherakles, American Free Press, Thu, 18 Apr 2013 08:43 CDT

    Nearly every expression of normal emotion can now be classified as a syndrome in need of medication


    The entire industry of psychiatry has become such a laughing stock that even many supporters of the industry are turning their backs in disgust.

    In May 2013, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) is scheduled to release its fifth Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) superseding the DSM-IV published in 1994 and revised in 2000. The new "psychiatry bible" has been criticized by many as a testament to the insanity of the industry itself. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being - sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement - is now being classified as a "mental disorder" demanding chemical treatment with - you guessed it - pharmaceutical drugs.

    Ironically, one of its harshest critics is Allen Frances M.D., professor emeritus from the Department of Psychiatry at Duke University who was chair of the DSM-IV Task Force.

    "DSM-5 opens up the possibility that millions and millions of people currently considered normal will be diagnosed as having a mental disorder and will receive medication and stigma that they don't need," said Frances. "This is the saddest moment in my 45-year career of studying, practicing, and teaching psychiatry. [The] approval makes it likely that DSM-5 will start a . . . dozen or more new fads which will be detrimental to the misdiagnosed individuals and costly to our society."

    The DSM is now larger than ever, and it includes Orwellian disorders such as "obedience defiance disorder" (ODD), defined as refusing to follow authority. Rapists who feel sexual arousal during their raping activities are given the excuse that they have "paraphilic coercive disorder" (PCD) and therefore are not responsible for their actions. You can also get diagnosed with "hoarding disorder" if you happen to stockpile food, water and ammunition, among other things. Being prepared for possible natural disasters now makes you a mental patient in the eyes of modern psychiatry.

    The entire industry of psychiatry has become such a laughing stock that even many supporters of the industry are turning their backs in disgust. To many scientists today, psychiatry is no more "scientific" than astrology or palm reading, yet its practitioners call themselves "doctors" of psychiatry in order to sound credible.

    The authenticity of already established "disorders" such as attention deficit hyper-active disorder (ADHD) and social anxiety disorder (SAD) have been called into question.

    Frances admits that even the 1994 DSM-IV was a huge mistake that has resulted in the mass over-diagnosis of people who are actually normal.

    The major victor in this is the pharmaceutical industry, which is having a field day with sales of billions of dollars of psychotropic drugs such as Prozac, Ritalin, Zoloft, Paxil and others.

    Since the introduction of Prozac in 1987 there has been an explosion in the number of people using psychiatric drugs. One in five Americans, or 65M people, is now taking at least one psychiatric drug such as anti-depressants, anti-psychotics and anti-anxiety medications, according to an analysis of pharmacy claims data released on November 2011. In 2010, Americans spent $16.1B on anti-psychotics to treat depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, $11.6B on anti-depressants and $7.2B on treatment for ADHD, according to IMS Health, which tracks prescription drug sales. The report showed that, between 2010 and 2011, the use of psychiatric drugs had increased a staggering 21%.

    The adverse effects from these drugs are devastating. Over 200K people a year in the United States enter a hospital with anti-depressant-associated mania orpsychosis. There have been 66 school shootings and over 1,300 murders and suicides by psych-drug users since 2000. The Columbine, Virginia Tech, Red Lake Reservation and Northern Illinois University shootings were all committed by individuals on psych drugs, as were many other mass shootings. At least 5K other news stories, including school shootings, link psychiatric drugs to violent crime, according to the website "SSRI Stories," which tracks these cases.

    Pharma funding & shrinks for sale - the creation of pre-school age bipolar epidemic
    Kelly Patricia O'Meara, Mon, 25 Mar 2013 08:34 CDT

    Psychiatrist Joseph Biederman is credited with the explosion of young children diagnosed with “bipolar” disorder and prescribed powerful antipsychotic drugs. He was paid 1.6 million from the pharmaceutical companies for his “research.”

    It is difficult to absorb the recent data released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, AHRQ, on the skyrocketing numbers of children diagnosed with "bipolar disorder" and not come to the conclusion that this startling information represents the never-ending harm initiated by the idiotic psychiatric theories of Harvard child psychiatrist, Dr. Joseph Biederman.

    In order to fully grasp just how outrageous the data are, one first must remember that the now disgraced and marginalized Biederman is credited with being the ring leader for diagnosing the alleged bipolar disorder in very young children.

    To add insult to injury, not only was Biederman the chief advocate of the now controversial diagnosis, but he is also credited with prescribing the most powerful antipsychotic drugs as treatment.

    It was only due to a Congressional inquiry by Senator Charles E. Grassley that the apparent motive behind Biederman's childhood bipolar diagnosis was uncovered...money.

    $1.6 million dollars was Biederman's take from the pharmaceutical companies for his "research." Most revealing, however, were court documents released in March of 2009, which disclose that Biederman reportedly had promised drug maker Johnson & Johnson in advance that his studies on the antipsychotic drug Risperdone (Risperdal) would prove the drug to be effective when used on preschool age children.

    Biederman could never be accused of discrimination. The Harvard psychiatrist, who literally placed himself just one rung below God, was so drug money-friendly that his list of paymasters reads like a who's who of pharmaceutical giants, including Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Janssen, Novartis, Pfizer and Shire to name a few.

    Remarkably, Biederman was not held responsible for the epidemic of preschool children being diagnosed with the alleged bipolar disorder. Rather, the psychiatrist received a slap on the wrist for failing to report all but $200,000 of his pharmaceutical booty to University officials.

    And while Biederman remains at his Harvard ivy tower, the devastating scope of his pharmaceutical-bought psychiatric theories on childhood bipolar disorder finally are coming to light.

    The AHRQ data reveal the breakdown of the number of children diagnosed as bipolar has skyrocketed. The data below represents hospitalization rates for children diagnosed as bipolar between 1997-2010.

    * 5-9 year olds increased 696%.
    * 10-14 year olds increased 475%.
    * 15-17 year olds increased 345%.
    * Hospital stays for bipolar disorder for all children aged 1-17 increased 434%.

    While the increased numbers alone are mind-boggling, there are several issues to look at when considering this information. The least of which is that there is no discussion about what psychiatric drugs had been prescribed to these children as "treatment" prior to the hospitalization.

    Given Biederman's pharmaceutical-driven influence on the diagnosing of the alleged bipolar disorder in children, and his recommended treatment, one can assume that antipsychotic drugs were involved in many, if not most, of the hospitalizations.

    That antipsychotic drugs may adversely affect children isn't in question. The reported adverse side effects include excessive weight gain, head pain, dizziness, drowsiness, abnormally low blood pressure, trouble breathing, suicidal ideation, depression, disease of the muscle of the heart with enlargement, kidney failure and diabetes, to name a few of the three pages listed.

    Perhaps it is because of psychiatrists, like Biederman, who literally get away with pharmaceutical bought-and-paid-for psychiatric diagnosing, that others in the profession are embolden to join the Biederman million-dollar push-a-drug club.

    For example, last week a study by Lisa Cosgrove, a University of Massachusetts researcher, reported that "All of the panel members that produced the American Psychiatric Association (APA)'s Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Major Depressive Disorder [a precursor to bipolar] had numerous financial ties to drug companies that manufacture antidepressants."

    So it continues. One can only guess what the hospitalization data will reveal ten years from now for the astronomical increases in the diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder. If Biederman's "research" and pharmaceutical pay-off is any indication of what's to come, it doesn't take much imagination.

    Biederman is the poster boy for no personal accountability. Despite his obvious lapse in ethical behavior, not only was he not run out of the profession but he got to keep every penny of his $1.6 million in pharmaceutical largesse.

    Unfortunately, based on the data, it seems the recipients of Biederman's pharmaceutical-bought psychiatric theories - the children - didn't make out so well.

    And despite the harm caused by such a flagrant abuse of position, Cosgrove's research reveals that nothing has changed... it's psychiatric diagnosing as usual. For the right price, there appears to be no shortage of psychiatric diagnosis wannabes eager to pick up where Biederman left off.
