The Marketing of Madness is a documentary on the psychiatric drug industry. It contains the real story of the high income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit bonanza. How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses and how safe are their drugs? This three-part documentary digs deep beneath the veneer and exposes the truth behind slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceals dangerous and often deadly sales campaigns. Things You Will Learn
- The side of effects of these drugs may actually make ‘mental illness’ worse.
- Psychiatric drugs can induce aggression or depression (Note: In every school shooting from Columbine to Virginia Tech, the person who pulled the trigger was on these drugs.)
- Some psychotropic drugs prescribed to children are more addictive than cocaine.
- Psychiatric diagnoses appear to be based on dubious science. Of the 297 mental disorders contained within the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, none can be objectively measured by pathological tests. Mental illness symptoms within this manual are arbitrarily assigned by a subjective voting system in a psychiatric panel.
- It is estimated that 100 million people globally use psychotropic drugs.
