How Big Pharma Controls Science & Psychiatry: BIG Money

Psychiatry is portrayed as a safe solution to depression and other mental health issues largely due to the financial influence of drug companies.  The  multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry spends large sums of money to influence scientific studies, journals and the medical system in general.  Drug company representatives that educate doctors and medical professionals about their company’s drugs are encouraged to give expensive gifts to doctors.  Drug companies also spend huge amounts of money on direct-to-consumer marketing and advertising, wherein they hide the dangers associated with the drugs and encourage citizens to “ask their doctor” about new psychiatric drugs.

In this free video, Dr. Colin Ross discusses his personal experience doing scientific research for drug companies, specifically how he was encouraged to manipulate the study’s findings in favor of the drug.
