The Scope of the Problem
Drug companies provide many necessary and helpful products, but they are in business to make money. They have an incentive to put profits ahead of the public’s welfare. The fact is, the sooner a company gets a new drug approved, the sooner additional profits start rolling in. For this reason, prescription drugs are often hurried to market before they have been adequately tested. Drugs are sometimes approved by the very same laboratories that the drug manufacturers fund themselves. In addition, the long-term effects of many drugs are often difficult to determine or poorly understood. And unfortunately, some drugs that receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration turn out to be unsafe.
You may be surprised to learn that as many as 200,000 Americans die from adverse reactions and side effects of prescription drugs. And an even greater number of people die or are seriously injured by side effects and adverse reactions to over-the-counter drugs and medications. To make matters worse, it often seems that people have to be injured or die before a harmful medication is recalled.
