Who's Behind It?

We are now experiencing a huge push for psychiatric evaluation in the school systems. They hope to find, through their minimal little tests, that your child needs some expensive drug like Prozac or Ritalin or Adderal.

No parent really wants their child "evaluated" and possibly labeled for life with a mental health issue, nor do they want to wrestle with this bureaucracy to keep from giving their kids drugs. No politician seems to really be behind it, except for a few rabid pro-pharmaceutical regulars. But it keeps moving forward. What is up with that?

Here's where you can see who's really behind it. Go to The pharmaceutical companies that will benefit from this, known collectively as "Big Pharma" are funding it with millions of dollars. The page has actual documents to prove it.
