Book Review: Death By Prescription

“Death By Prescription: The Shocking Truth Behind an Overmedicated Nation”. Excellent book written by a physician who dares to speak the truth about the medications being used to treat disease. He not only warns against the possible side effects and interactions, but explains the pharmaceutical industry’s culpability in a system gone wrong.

And he doesn’t stop there. He instructs people on what they can do to get and stay healthy without all the drugs. Ultimately, we have to take responsibility for lifestyle choices that lead to disease and informing ourselves about the drugs we are prescribed and doing what we can to avoid having to take them. Read this book and you will not OTC swallow so much as an aspirin, anti-depressant, anti-biotic or even desi baba’s Gomutra without a thought again.
