Please read my blog on the problems with prescription drugs: Drowning in drugs – can we really poison our way to health?

An increasing number of medications are being made in China. There have been serious problems with contamination. I recommend China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine and this People’s Pharmacy radio interview with the author.

Psychiatric DrugsDramatic videos (Note: Because the watchdog organization Citizens Commission on Human Rights does wonderful work protecting us from psychiatric abuses and provides accurate and life-saving information, it does not concern me that the group was originally co-founded by Scientologists. I encourage folks not to throw the baby out with the bath water.)

Money in the industry is a major contributor to drug overuse:

Fraud. It is well-documented that the government typically enjoys a cozy relationship with drug companies. However, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline took so many highly visible liberties that the regulators were forced to reassert their authority by giving them a public spanking. A Time Magazine Healthline article describes it this way: “In the largest settlement involving a pharmaceutical company, the U.S. Justice Department announced on July 2 that GlaxoSmithKline LLC will pay $3 billion in fines and plead guilty to marketing drugs for unapproved uses and failing to report drug safety information to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).” All though this fine sounds big, given the tens of billions of dollars the drug company made on those drugs over the 10 years before called to task, even that record-setting amount is little more than an affordable cost of doing business.

Useful reference for bad drugs and devices. Also, if you have been harmed, you can see what has been done by other consumers. Note: it is sponsored by a law firm and lists drug lawsuits.
