Chapter 2: Psychiatry's Drug Push

Since 1952, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)–psychiatry’s billing bible—has grown from a small booklet listing 112 “mental disorders” to a massive volume numbering 886 pages, listing 374 disorders. It is only through this book that psychiatrists can diagnose, drug and bill for services. In fact, the psychiatric industry currently uses the DSM to collect over $72 billion in private and government insurance money.

No one is immune from any of the hundreds of fictitious disorders invented by psychiatrists to serve a multibillion dollar psychiatric drug industry.

FACT: An estimated 50% of all Americans who commit suicide are on psychotropic drugs.
