The Drug Lords
Author: Bian, Tonda R.
Description: The Drug Lords…America’s Pharmaceutical Cartel shoots a critical look at our over-prescribed, over-medicated society and the role the pharmaceutical industry plays in keeping us there. In just 17 years, the per capita expenditure on legal drugs has increased more than 400%, yet the fact is with more people taking more drugs than ever before, the health of this country continues to decline. The blame for this travesty falls largely on the broad shoulders of the pharmaceutical industry, an industry that reaps huge profits by maintaining a sick and dying society.
The Drug Lords…America’s Pharmaceutical Cartel also accuses medicine of breaking anti-trust laws, of preventing other avenues of health care from fairly competing with established medicine all for the sake of money and all with the full approval and cooperation of the United States government.
