“This book exposes a major marketing scheme that is currently under way, and unfortunately our children are the primary targets. It all began with the 374 "different newly created mental conditions" to justify placing our children, (including preschoolers), on one or more of their "very profitable" drugs that, although legal, can still be lethal! The mental screening process falls under the recently mandated federal TeenScreen program, and was deliberately designed to assure that many "perfectly normal children" would now qualify for one or more of their very profitable drugs.” … (For example) “With approximately 575 potential side effects associated with Prozac that were listed with the FDA, and over 20,000 law suits settled by the maker Eli Lilly, to date, the question is: Why is Eli Lilly still being allowed to promote ProzacT for even pregnant mothers, and very young children? “

The dragnet of psychiatric diagnosis is the ever-growing Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a handbook of behaviors that are considered deviant and in need of treatment. The conditions listed are in the realm of ideas. Delusions and hallucinations are merely a refusal to see reality like the majority sees it. There is no physical marker, nothing that could be healed by chemical or surgical intervention. Yet, psychiatric screening for those differing views is being extended to all schools in
