http://www.youtube.com/embed/wIWuEAFlg1Y this is an eye opener and it should be, thoughts?
All of that info seems like common sense to me. I think the only eye opening thing about it is the person actually giving this information. I am always amazed at the statistics on how many citizens are on certain types of drugs. I know people that have medicated their afflictions and have had long painful withdrawal symptoms from trying to come off of it after years of use. While I find it wonderful that they did finally stop taking their prescription pain killers (for an actual auto immune disorder), I feel sad for the number of years she lost by essentially being drugged out of existence. She missed several years of her kids lives and as we all know, you never get those back.

The sad thing is that the Pharm lobby is so powerful due to their deep pockets that I don't really see it ever changing. It's all about educating the younger generations to think for themselves and actually do some research. I've been lucky enough to have picked doctors that aren't Dr. Feelgoods and have told me the negatives of certain drugs. I had one before I moved that would always be up front about the addictive nature of certain allergy medications. He would always recommend a neti-pot over Rx allergy meds for me (although he would give me an Rx for Allegra during the worst of the allergy season).
Big Pharm always does well in D.C., as their pockets are deep enough to corrupt both parties at once. Sadly, this like so many other issues boil down to power, money and politics.
