child and adolescent bipolar foundation lie about their financing

Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation lie about their financing




Now you have to wonder what else their lying about?


They are one of those non-advocate organizations that want to drug kids with known harmful drugs that signed that notorious letter to the FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee Meeting on June 9-10: Joint Statement on Atypical Antipsychotic Use in Children.

CABF Testimony at the June 9, 2009 Meeting of the
Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee
of the Food and Drug Administration

Concerning new drug approvals for Seroquel for schizophrenia (children ages 13-17) and bipolar disorder (children ages 10-17); Geodon capsules for bipolar disorder (children ages 10-17); and Zyprexa for schizophrenia and bipolar in adolescents.


"My name is Susan Resko and I am the executive director of the Child & Adolescent Bipolar Foundation. I represent over 25,000 constituents; 95% are parents of children living with bipolar disorder and related conditions. CABF neither seeks, nor accepts financial support from pharmaceutical or medical device companies."

From their 2006 financial disclosure PDF - www.bpkids.org/site/DocServer/CABF_2005-06_Audited_Financials.pdf?docID=1041

“The Foundation revenue is comprised primarily of donations from individuals and grants received from Pharmaceutical companies.”

“For the year ended June 30, 2006, grants received from one pharmaceutical company comprised more than 10% of total support and revenue”.

“During fiscal years 2005 and 2006, the foundation, which had historically received 50-70% of its funding from the pharmaceutical industry”

1. Can you please explain this obvious conflict of statements for us?

2. What drug company accounted for more than 10% of your total donations?

3. more than 10%, does that mean 99% or 11%?

4. Are you in fact a front for the pharmaceutical industry and eugenicists?

I am calling out your BULLSHIT!

We would like some answers? but I will pass this information along to Senator Grassley regardless.



Let's begin with the Child Bipolar Myth - it's not recognized by most nations in the civilized world because it's a lie and just a eugenics front for psychiatry and marketing tool for the major drug industry.

Dr. J. Biederman of Harvard, MGH, "lets aggressively drug those kids with A Typical Anti Psychotics before they get ill" and " I'm second to God" fame; while being under Grassley's Senate investigation for unethical and possible criminal activity sits on their advisory panel.

Susan Resko, executive director of the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Association, told the Health Blog that FDA approval of additional drugs for bipolar disorder would “validate” the existence of bipolar disorders in children but she also urged caution about their use. “These medications can be and are lifesaving for countless numbers of children,” she said, “But they need to be use with care and with experts.”

More drug approvals to validate a mythological diagnosis!! This is how the high stakes game of your child's health is played!! Psychiatry has no conscience, just fat bank accounts by way of Big Pharma.

If you want to trust your Kids to these kinds of people and organizations? Please be aware you have now been informed/warned of the dangers and consequences {which include permanent disability and death}.

Yes, it gets even worse! look in the comment section of this post for more disheartening information about this non-advocate organization and Big Pharma pimp.

Dr. Melissa DelBello who is also on the child and adolescent bipolar foundation advisory board is obviously in bed with AZ pharmaceuticals collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars, and creating her own front company while at her desk at her university job and funded by AZ. Yes she maybe even more egocentric and whacked out than J. Biederman the bipolar child doctor of death himself.

Kay Jamison of that unquiet fraud fame; why haven't you spoken up for the children? J. Biederman got your tongue or has Big Pharma got your wallet?

Kay is also on this dubious Advisory Board.

Why anyone would entrust KIDS to these Big Pharma spokespersons, and obviously deeply conflict of interest rooted and associated organizations is beyond comprehension.

Susan Resko wrote a letter to the Editor in Dec 2007--Philip Dawdy wrote her an inquiry, and my comment in that article has a lot of CABF information in case you're curious!

Great postings!

and this comment section at FS also

Key Opinion Leader conflicted just like Biederman and on the CABF Advisory board:

Dr. Melissa DelBello

http://clinpsyc.blogspot.com/2008/04/bipolar-child-key-opinion-leader-i-get.html

"DelBello, who also has received NIH grants, also reported $100,000 in outside income between 2005 and 2007. But when Grassley asked AstraZeneca directly, the total value of its payments to DelBello during those three years came to $238,000.

So she claimed initially that she received $100k from 2005-2007, but she actually pulled in $238k from a single company and who knows how much from other outside entities. In fact, it is clear that DelBello has received funding from several other corporate interests. To quote her disclosure from a continuing medical education exercise:

Dr. DelBello has disclosed the following relevant financial relationships: AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, and Pfizer: Consultant; AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer: Speakers’ Bureau; and Abbott Laboratories, AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Janssen, Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer, and Shire: Research Support Recipient.

But wait, there's more! According to Grassley's investigation, DelBello has also established a company for "personal financial purposes." The company is called MSZ Associates and AstraZeneca put $60,000 in the coffers of the company. The address of MSZ Associates, according to Grassley, is the University of Cincinnati Department of Psychiatry (where DelBello works)."
