"Top Psychiatric Researcher Dr. Biederman Caught Lying about $1.6 Million in Drug Money; Performed Medical Experiments on Children
NaturalNews) Harvard University's Dr. Joseph Biederman has been a loyal soldier in the battleground for chemical control over children's minds. A highly-influential researcher at Harvard University, Dr. Biederman spearheaded a 4000% increase in the diagnosis of pediatric bipolar disorder from 1994 to 2003, resulting in billions of dollars in revenues for drug companies and millions of children being put on mind-altering medications. Now, thanks to an investigation by the office of Sen. Charles Grassley and a damning report published in the New York Times, it has been revealed that Dr. Biederman lied about the amount of money he received from drug companies -- a figure that may exceed $1.6 million..."
"...As part of his drug-pushing efforts, Dr. Biederman has openly advocated non-approved uses of mind-altering drugs on children, encouraging doctors to prescribe pills for various so-called "disorders" even though no FDA approval has ever been granted for using those mind-altering medicines on children. This didn't stop Dr. Biederman, though, from openly pushing for the widespread prescribing of drugs for such "off-label" conditions, including their use on infants and very young children. Thanks in large part to Dr. Biederman's apparently financially-motivated efforts, sales of drugs used to treat "bipolar disorder" doubled from 2003 to 2006..."
"...Among the awards that have been given to Dr. Biederman are "Best Doctors in America" and the CHADD "Hall of Fame" (CHADD is a front group for Big Pharma that pushes psychiatric medication for children).
Here's the full description (read it and weep):
Dr. Biederman has been the recipient of the American Psychiatric Association Blanche Ittelson Award for Excellence in Child Psychiatric Research, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Charlotte Norbert Rieger Award for Scientific Achievement. He has been inducted into the CHADD "Hall of Fame". Dr Biederman has also been selected every year since its inception into the "The Best Doctors in America" compilation of the best physicians in the country. From 1985-1995 Dr. Biederman served as Co-Chair of the Work Group on research, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He is mentor to more than 12 junior investigators in the field. Dr. Biederman is on the editorial board of multiple journals, a reviewer for most of the Psychiatric journals, and has served as a grant reviewer in the Child Psychopathology and Treatment Review Committee of the NIMH. He is the author and co-author of close to 500 papers, scientific articles, 70 book chapters and more than 450 scientific abstracts. In 2000, Dr. Biederman pioneered and established a Stanley Foundation Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital dedicated to the treatment of pediatric bipolar disorder. Dr. Biederman's work is supported by multiple federal and pharmaceutical industry grants. During the decade of the 1990's, he was the fourth highest producer of high impact papers in psychiatry and the highest ranked child psychiatrist as determined by the Institute for Scientific Information (Science, 2000, Vol 288, pg 959). Dr. Biederman was the recipient of the 1998 NAMI Exemplary Psychiatry award. He was also the recipient of the 2002 NARSAD Senior Investigator award. Since 2002 Dr. Biederman has been appointed as an associate editor to the journal Biological Psychiatry.
What isn't mentioned in all these achievements, of course, are other statistics:
• The tens of millions of children harmed by psychiatric medications each year.
• The diabetes and obesity caused by psychiatric medications.
• The violent school shootings and suicides caused by psychiatric medications.
• The permanent harm caused to the brains of children being forced to take psychiatric medications.
• The billions of dollars that have been taken from families and taxpayers by drug companies who profit from the sales of mind-altering medications.
If there was an award for the most destructive doctor in modern medicine, Dr. Biederman might very well receive it. And although I do not condone the death penalty or the use of violence in solving problems, I do believe that Dr. Biederman should be removed from society and placed under the care of a mental institution where he can receive the same kind of "treatment" that he has so callously dished out to the children used in his own medical experiments..."
