Dr Oz: 4 Things Drug Companies Don’t Want You To Know
Dr Oz spoke about the Pharmaceutical Companies Secrets, including Alli & Orlistat side effects (click here to read more about these drugs: Dr Oz: Alli & Orlistat). Doctor Oz also said that you’re often prescribed drugs you don’t need because of Disease Mongering of things like Overactive Bladder, Osteopenia, and Excessive Daytime Sleepiness. And of course drugs target the symptom not the cause.
Dr Oz: Disease Mongering
Doctor Oz said that “You’re Often Prescribed Drugs You Don’t Need” because Drug Companies engage in something called Disease Mongering, where they hype up things that are not really diseases, like Overactive Bladder, Osteopenia and Excessive Daytime Sleepiness. These are problems for some people, but do we really need drugs for them? Dr John Abramson, author of Overdosed America, lecturer at Harvard University and consultant to the US Department of Justice and the F.B.I., said that it is the Drug Company’s job to sell drugs. They get drugs approved on the market for something helpful, and then they broaden who the drug is marketed to so that a wider percentage of the population can be a candidate to take it.
