Psychiatry: An Industry of Death reviews
If you are at all interested in the history of Psychiatry and psychology this is definitely a place for you to visit. It is free how are they do ask for donation at the end. Church of Scientology runs this place however they are very low-key about themselves there.
An eye opener and also not. Historically a good reminder of where we have come from. The whole medical industry has come about from experimentation and that has to be remembered. Big pharma has a lot to answer for with the present situation
