Are Drug Companies Hiding The Truth From Us?

Spread the love

This is a very controversial subject and Dr. Oz tried tackling it last Thursday on his show. Pharmaceutical drugs are important and have their place in our world, however, there is no doubt in my mind that many drugs are overused, misused and over-prescribed, and I am not the only one who believes this.  Dr. Oz had expert guests debate drug companies’ role in our everyday life and what they (the companies) are keeping from the public.

According to Dr. Oz, there are 4 secrets that the pharmaceutical industry is hiding:

1. Drug companies underestimate dangerous side effects
2. Drug companies control much of the information that doctors get about a drug
3. People are often prescribed drugs they don’t need
4. Drugs target the symptom, not the cause
