Psychiatrist Creates Bipolar Disorder Epidemic in Children: Admits Receiving $1.6 Million Drug Company Payoff

Print Friendly

Scared_Crying_ChildAward winning investigative journalist, Kelly O’Meara, has recently reported data released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), on the skyrocketing numbers of children diagnosed with “bipolar disorder” and the never-ending crime against children initiated by the baseless psychiatric theories of Harvard child psychiatrist, Dr. Joseph Biederman.

Biederman is credited with being the gang leader for diagnosing the alleged bipolar disorder in very young children and he is credited with prescribing the most powerful antipsychotic drugs as treatment.  Some readers may recall that he placed himself ‘next to God’ during a deposition in a landmark 2009 New Jersey lawsuit against AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly and J&J’s Janssen unit over their psychiatric drugs.

As a result of a US Congressional Inquiry it was learned that Biederman was paid $1.6 million dollars for slanting his “research” to support childhood bipolar disorder and the drugs pushed by Johnson & Johnson.  O’Meara comments  “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, who has influenced today’s psychiatrists and government health policies immeasurably, also works for other psychiatric drug companies:  Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Janssen, Novartis, Pfizer and Shire to name just a few. And despite this disgraceful violation of his oath to ‘do no harm’,  he still has his position at Harvard, still receives his tidy sums from pharmaceuticals and received only a slap on the wrist for not reporting to Harvard all of the money he received from Big Pharma.  We should all be running from Harvard trained doctors if this is how they handle fraud and crimes against children.

AHRQ Data Reveals Epidemic Levels of Hospitaliztion Rates for Children Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder

The AHRQ data reveals the hospitalization rates for children diagnosed as bipolar between 1997-2010 (only 13 years).

*            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%.

Note that there is no discussion about what psychiatric drugs had been prescribed to these children as “treatment” prior to the hospitalization.  As pointed out by O’Meara “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.

Health and Brain-damaging Effects of Antipsychotic Drug Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

Anti-psychotic drugs adversely affect children in ways that 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 of side effects listed.  Suicide rates in children treated with psychiatric drugs has also sky-rocketed.

Psychiatric Crimes Continue Unabated and Parents Continue to Subject Children to Fraudulent Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Despite the harm caused by such psychiatric crimes against humanity, research reveals that nothing has changed… psychopaths continue parading as medicine men with impunity. For the right price, there appears to be no shortage of psychiatric diagnosis wannabes eager to pick up where Biederman left off.

It seems that some parents and caregivers will subject their kids to anything as long as they can absolve themselves of their role in their child’s so-called unwanted behaviors by claiming ‘The doctor said….”.  It is truly dangerous for children to live in some families…let us never forget that prior to 1970 there was no such thing as bipolar disorder in children and it was rare in adults.  Should a child have a normal reaction to a dysfunctional family and school situation today, he/she may be quickly re-victimized.  What better way to keep a molested child quiet?

    Biederman was aided and abetted by Allan Frances – director of the DSM IV (1985) who received over a million dollars from Johnson and Johnson to promote Risperodone (Risperdal, commonly used in childhood bipolar, and a particularly nasty drug. This paved the way for Biederman, Nemeroff and sundry others. Biederman and Frances are also implicated in the skyrocketing growth of ADHD, again directly associated with big pharma. Frances appears to have forgotten this in his quest for respect as a more socially aware psychiatrist. This coincided with his being rejected as chair of the DSM V committee.

    Knut, you are so right. The horrors of lobotomies, electroshock, little children being drugged 24/7, all so they can make $ is horrific. Children damaged grow up to be very angry adults.

    Psychiatry does more harm than good. We do not need it. Society tries to conform people to strict normality standards that violate the nature of each individual, and the psychiatrists, people that themselves have been successfully violated at their time, are anong the toools for this practise.

    Thanks Wendy…please pass it on. Right now millions of little kids are being tortured with antipsychotics on his say-so because most parents see it as a quick fix for the intolerable situation their kids are living in at home and at school.

    Biederman is a criminal! Thanks for getting out the truth!
