Re: Re: Slanted Language
Maybe there is so little "street trade" because it is so easy to go
to a physician, answer a series of questions, get a diagnosis, and walk
out with a prescription. And on top of that, insurance will pay for it.
Speaking of slanted lanquage, there is little proof that depression is a
"disease" in the typical sense. When I ask psychiatrists and researchers
to provide evidence for a biological basis of disease they usually provide
a citation to a textbook or review articles. Maybe Dr. Klein could
provide a short list of research papers that he thinks are the best
evidence supporting the biological theory (or theories) of mental illness.
