Note: During the past year we have seen an increase in articles, from many sources, highlighting the dangers associated with prescription drug use. While some may see it simply as medical bashing, others feel there is a responsibility to tell the truth about our current health care system. Today’s Los Angeles Times front page article pulls no punches with headlines that read “Seven Deadly Drugs.”
The Los Angeles Times today, reports with an in depth article detailing how changes in FDA policy has lead to many new drugs reaching the market. Along with the new drugs have come increased reports of adverse drug reactions as well as increased incidence of death.

Another note: What bothers me most is not the fact that the healthiest people I know do not take drugs. For some, it is a long stretch to imagine that there are people that don’t pop a pill at every ill. It is a stretch to think that some don’t use a powder or potion for every condition that comes along.
No, that’s not what bothers me most. What bothers me most is that many on our planet do not know what you know about health. Inherent within lies some responsibility to share that, yes?
