The Mental Health Pharma-conspiracy

The deeper Morgellonites are pushing this story
The implication being that many doctors and psychiatrist are in league with the pharmacutical industry - and have a vested interest in diagnosing things as psyciatric disorders so that Big Pharma can sell more psychopharmalogical drugs.
This is about as likely as the clothing manufacturers being in cahoots with the dry-cleaning cartels by labling their garments "dry-clean only", when you know perfectly well they'll do just fine in the laundry.
The question to ask (and I'm borrowing here, Seinfelt I believe) is "how would that even work?"
When your doctor suggests perhaps a component of your disorder is mental, then does he get some kind of kickback from Big P? How much might that be? How does that money get to him?
Doctors get paid a lot already. What portion of their income comes from these psych-referral kickbacks?
How does the accounting work? Follow the money. In all the decades of auditing of various health industries - has there been one shred of evidence of such a kickback scheme?
It must be more subtle - the Doctors get paid by insurance companies that get paid by the consumers, who get high premiums because the price of psych drugs is so high. Doctors keep over-prescribing them, so everyone makes money.
Consider though, how would that even work? The individual doctor will get paid regardless. If he writes needless pescriptions, he does not get paid more. He's taking a risk of getting caught. So it's better for the individual doctor to get paid as normal, and let others take the risk.
So there HAS to be a kickback scheme involved.
But nobody has ever produced one shred of evidence of any financial irregularities.
And don't point at that Reuters story above - read it first, it explains why they have "links". Their links are most tenuous, and quite innocent looking. Heck, I have links just because I own share in SPY, which includes some pharma companies. Most of you dear readers, if you have a 401K, or other retirement account, will have some shares in a mutual fund that also invest in Pharma. Are you involved?
How would that even work?

Never worked for a physician before? Doctors getting kickbacks for pushing those little "sample" packs of drugs, for example, is the norm.

Kickbacks for free samples? I see only vague intimations of such things in the article - no convictions mentioned.

Sure you'll find a minor degree of corruption in any industry - but people seem to be suggesting that it's so prevelant that a Doctor will be VERY LIKELY to diagnose you incorrectly as he'll get more money because of this incorrect diagnosis. Specifically they get more moeny by diagnosing mental illness than diagnosing physical illness.

What degree of accusation are you making here? Can you be specific?

"Pinging you off"? What are you talking about? What's heaven got to do with anything?

And - with kickbacks for free samples - how would that even work? If you "worked for a physician", then give a few examples of what went on.

Morgellons, in the minds of most morgellonites posting on message boards they are paranoid about everything, including the food and clothing industry.

They actually think they're some sort of sacrificial guinea pigs being used in the ultimate conspiracy to
depopulate the human race.

They're not paranoid, obsessive, or delusional. You can really tell they're
more evolved than the rest of the populace. If there's any doubt of that, they're always repeating how highly intelligent they are, so pay no attention to your discernment when reading.

Oh, about that doctor/pharmaceutical business of kickbacks and bribes, Dunno how legit this "Corruption Online Research & Information System" site is

In the meantime, keep educating, and beware Chinese cotton.

I wonder what would happen if you combined Chinese cotton with French bottled water.

My, the possible avenues of research are endless. Thanks for the pointer.
