CNN: Are Americans Overmedicated?

In an in-depth interview on CNN this morning, John Abramson, MD, board member of the Alliance for Human Research Protection, explained why it is that 74% of Americans who visit a doctor, leave with a prescription for a drug (or several drugs), and why taking drugs is NOT the best way to good health.

 Dr. Abramson succictly explains how American medicine’s reliance and over use of drugs–primarily new, expensive drugs–is driven by the drug industry. And how that industry controls most of the channels of communication by which medical information is transmitted to physicians and the public.
