In total alignment with the socialists’ agenda,
TeenScreen is the latest attempt to subvert individual liberty and destroy the
creativity of our next generation. Cloaked in scientific jargon, TeenScreen is
creeping into school systems in the dead of night to lure our children into
becoming drug company customers. It’s time the public learned the truth about
this pseudo-scientific scam. John Carey

WorldCom, TeenScreen. What do these groups have in common? They all have run
huge scams on the public in their pursuit of power and the almighty dollar.
TeenScreen is based on the flawed pseudo-science of psychiatry. The
controversial screening program asks young people invasive questions about their
lives and their feelings, then compares the answers to lists of symptoms from
psychiatry’s bible of "mental disorders", the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual
of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM IV).
The DSM has been thoroughly discredited, even by psychiatrists and other
professionals. In an article entitled DSM: Diagnosing for Money and Power, Ofer
Zur, Ph.D., and Nola Nordmarken, MFT, state that "The DSM is more a political
document than a scientific one. Decisions regarding inclusion or exclusion of
disorders are made by majority vote rather than by indisputable scientific
Recent media has exposed corruption in those psychiatric researchers who
created the DSM IV. USA Today reported in April ‘06, "A majority of the medical
experts who created the "bible" for diagnosing mental illness have undisclosed
financial links to drugmakers".
claims to have a science, but what do their leaders say? Rex
director of the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health in 1995 said, "We do
not know the causes (of psychiatric disorders). We don’t have methods of curing
these illnesses yet." Norman Sartorius, president of the World Psychiatric
Association, said in 1994, "The time when psychiatrists considered that they
could cure the mentally ill is gone.
In the future, the mentally ill will have to learn to live with their
If you go to a medical doctor with a broken arm, you would have pain in your
arm and you might be irritable. A medical doctor uses these symptoms and an
x-ray to confirm the problem, and after six weeks in a cast you are cured
– at least until the
next time you try out your child’s skateboard.
The psychiatric approach is to VOTE on diseases. Stealing legitimacy from the
medical community, they group symptoms and give them ominous and frightening
names. From 1952-94, the DSM grew from 112 disorders/diseases to
374 by VOTING! After gay activist picketing in 1973, psychiatrists voted to
remove the mental "disorder" known as homosexuality from DSM. Since there was no
science in adding it, it was easy to remove.
Some of the other "scientific" diseases being foisted onto the public are
"Caffeine-Related Disorder", "Mathematics Disorder" and "Sibling Rivalry
Disorder." When I was mean to my brother, my mom punished me
– she didn’t know of
today’s "scientific method" - giving me a daily dose of Prozac.
We have all seen the fraudulent advertisements about chemical imbalances in
the brain causing "mental illness". Drug companies are able to fool many people
and gain business by falsely associating themselves with true medical science.
There are chemical imbalances (known, provable, indisputable) in medicine. An
example of a real chemical imbalance is Diabetes
– a lab test shows too
much sugar in the person’s system. This imbalance is corrected by giving
insulin, the exact hormone that is missing. This is science.
What about psychiatry’s version? There is NO blood test. There is no Ritalin,
Paxil or Prozac flowing through a normal child’s brain. The entire THEORY of
chemical imbalance is based on the subjective symptoms in DSM, and psychiatrists
prescribe mind-altering drugs to MASK the symptoms. This is equivalent to a
medical doctor never setting your broken arm, but giving you life-long doses of
morphine to hide the pain.
Those who speak up and tell the truth, like Tom Cruise, are attacked because
they reject the idea that chemical "imbalances" in the brain cause mental
illness, and are quick to point out that no tests have ever proven that theory.
