How Pharma Giants Are Getting Rich By Calling Our Life Problems 'Medical Disorders'
"Pharma companies have waded into helping us with life problems far beyond the biological -- they claim to cure our social maladies." www.alternet.org/story/142111/
Having worked in a state psychiatric hospital I can most DEFINATELY vouch for the need for antipsychotic, anti-depressant and mood-stabilizing medications for those with serious mental illnesses.
However one has to wonder about the widespread, rampant use of some of these medications as a "cure" for life's trials and tribulations...!
Especially those of us who have been working on reclaiming and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle! It's wonderful that studies are actually coming out these days showing that physical activity beats anti-depressants for improving one's moods!
How many of us have proven THAT to be true...?! :-)
