Virtual veterans help train U.S. Army psychologists
A 'virtual patient' technology being developed at USC could help U.S. Army psychologists and psychiatrists to treat their patients more effectively A technology currently under development at the University of Southern California is using highly interactive, artificial intelligence-driven virtual patients to simulate psychological disorders - ...

Health Industry can treat all the virtual patients they want. Just keep them away from real humanbeings.
Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness
Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.
Pasted from < http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/12/ff_dsmv... ;
There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

Doctors are more deadly then guns
The (APA) DSM-V is the future version of the Mein Kampf.
Bombs and bullets will be replaced with mind drugs and psychotherapy (false memory) in future generations.
That's certainly what Aldus Huxley predicted with his fictional Soma and it came true

U.S. military: Heavily armed and medicated
Marine Corporal Michael Cataldi woke as he heard the truck rumble past.
He opened his eyes, but saw nothing. It was the middle of the night, and he was facedown in the sands of western Iraq. His loaded M16 was pinned beneath him.
Cataldi had no idea how he'd gotten to where he now lay, some 200 meters from the dilapidated building where his buddies slept. But he suspected what had caused this nightmare: His Klonopin prescription had run out.
His ordeal was not all that remarkable for a person on that anti-anxiety medication. In the lengthy labeling that accompanies each prescription, Klonopin users are warned against abruptly stopping the medicine, since doing so can cause psychosis, hallucinations, and other symptoms. What makes Cataldi's story extraordinary is that he was a U. S. Marine at war, and that the drug's adverse effects endangered lives — his own, his fellow Marines', and the lives of any civilians unfortunate enough to cross his path.
"It put everyone within rifle distance at risk," he says.
In deploying an all-volunteer army to fight two ongoing wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Pentagon has increasingly relied on prescription drugs to keep its warriors on the front lines. In recent years, the number of military prescriptions for antidepressants, sleeping pills, and painkillers has risen as soldiers come home with battered bodies and troubled minds. And many of those service members are then sent back to war theaters in distant lands with bottles of medication to fortify them.
According to data from a U. S. Army mental-health survey released last year, about 12 percent of soldiers in Iraq and 15 percent of those in Afghanistan reported taking antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, or sleeping pills. Prescriptions for painkillers have also skyrocketed. Data from the Department of Defense last fall showed that as of September 2007, prescriptions for narcotics for active-duty troops had risen to almost 50,000 a month, compared with about 33,000 a month in October 2003, not long after the Iraq war began.

Send their butts to jail and get to treating our soldiers for the truth. WTH is wrong with these idiots.
1 in 29 of our kids are infected with stealth infections in the REAL SERONEGATIVE AIDS and they want to dope them up to keep them from killing themselves?
Well they just told us what that will do for them...
***DONT USE ANY KIND OF DOPE WITH LYME***(HIV AND FUNGAL INFECTIONS); IT MAKES YOU STUPIDER, FASTER (BUT WE ALREADY KNEW THAT FROM THE MALPRACTICE OF TREATING LYME/CFIDS AS IF THEY WERE PSYCHIATRIC DISEASES, PER THE PSYCH.ORG 's OWN GUIDELINES)
We got people showing up infected with hidden rabies and Anthrax and they want to give them something to finish them off faster since the vaccines didn't work...
What does it take to be able to tolerize Rabies and Anthrax like in the Heroin users? They won't get it till they get it.....Or we all fall down...
ScienceDaily.com : Rabies not 100 percent fatal even when left untreated

Are the heroin users getting Anthrax because of the immune supression from the pandemic of neurological syndromes?
Or is Anthrax folding into the genes from vaccine induced infections caused by prion synergy perpetuating those infections?
When are the American people going to learn just how ugly WWIII really has been and is not working out for USA.
They are NOT going to tell us what it takes to go very viral, but they are going to allow them to continue trying. HIV did not cause AIDS. Spirochetes did and do and they have been told time after time and they still let one lab infect them with Anthrax and continue infecting our kids.
Testimony before the NIH---ignored.
SAYS BARTHOLD: "The viability of noncultivable [it takes months not weeks to reculture spirochetes from the spheroplast form and of course, see the older data on the viability of the "granule" form] spirochetes in antibiotic-treated mice (d
emonstrable by PCR) was confirmed by transplantation of tissue allografts from treated mice into SCID mice, with dissemination of spirochetal DNA to multiple recipient tissues, and by xenodiagnosis, including acquisition by ticks, transmission by ticks to SCID mice, and survival through molting into nymphs and then into adults. Furthermore, PCR-positive heart base tissue from antibiotic-treated mice revealed RNA transcription of several B. burgdorferi genes. These results extended previous studies with ceftriaxone, indicating that antibiotic treatment is unable to clear persisting spirochetes, which remain viable and infectious, but are nondividing or slowly dividing." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19995919
So much for using spirochetal slime in cells from a woman who had Syphilis in vaccines for over 30yrs. knowing they could not be killed.
Thanks to the real seronegative AIDS our kids suffer from genetically altered vaccines stupid thinks if they can't find nothin wrong with them it must be psych....unfortunately 90% of all psych have infectious DNA attached to their own and never properly treated for their infections either...
We KNOW that at least 1/3 of the public is infected with a latent form of TB, 90% of the public is infected with EBV and Herpes and they still give junk out like candy killing our kids.
Induce an exit on their hands and feet with animal wormer paste and looking with a micromagnifying glass for the fibers and black dots and you have your answer to stealth infections causing immune suppression allowing organisms to have NO Stops. Killing the soldiers on purpose.

The Real Seronegative AIDS----
Vet Med Sci. 2012 Aug 10.[Epub ahead of print]
Negative by PCR/DNA but pos. in tests never conducted because criminals devised antibody assays to RULE US OUT and profit from all the syndromes of unknown origin until they could drop US for gone.
How long have the criminals known this? Since 1951. How many times do they need to be told?
NIH says your just fat and lazy. Numerous times they have been told and NO ONE LISTENS.
How many other infections are seronegative with criminal tests to NOT detect. MOST OF THEM.
