|6/20/2008 - It is the position of Big Pharma that pharmaceuticals make people healthier. That's the whole point of taking them, of course -- to enhance your health in some way that the human body apparently cannot achieve on its own (if you believe the drug ads, anyway). The drug industry's direct-to-consumer advertisements...|
|5/1/2008 - Remember a couple of years ago how the FDA warned Americans not to buy prescription drugs from Canada because they might be "contaminated by terrorists?"
