DSM Again Exposed as Bogus

The Diagnostic and Statistic Manual (DSM) which is the bible of psychiatrists contains all the 'diseases' and 'treatments' in the field of psychiatry. It is the sole reference point for all practising bio-psychiatrists.

Lisa Cosgrove is a clinical psychologist at the U of Massachusetts in Boston. She has just completed an analysis which shows that every psychiatric expert involved in the writing of the DSM section on mood disorders such as depression, and psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia are or were paid stooges of the drug companies.

"I don't think the public is aware of how egregious the financial ties are in the field of psychiatry," said Lisa Cosgrove, a clinical psychologist at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, who is publishing her analysis Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.

"It shouldn't be assumed there is a true conflict of interest," said John Kane who worked on the last edition of DSM. He said his panel's conclusions were driven only by science. Right John.
