边走边玩

Put all my soul into it, play the way I feel.

在你吃药之前先听听这位医生怎么说?

John Abramson是一位有着high profile的美国医生,现任职于哈佛医学院。他专门花了几年的时间,做了大量艰辛的调查向人们揭示:制药公司是怎样向医生行销他们的药品;怎样隐瞒或downplay这些药物的致命副作用;怎样扩大市场说服健康的人也去服药等等。

作为消费者,你有权和应该知道:你的钱都花到哪去了?你到底吃了有什么样副作用的药?当你患了慢性病、富贵病时,吃药是最佳选择吗?吃这些药会像广告上说的那样让病情得到控制或者好转吗?在花钱埋头吃药的时候,你错失了什么良机?制药公司是以公众的健康为重还是他们的经济利益永远至上?

在此引用网友probiotic的精彩发言:
急症救命药物, 毒性也必须承受! 问题是, 由现代生活方式所致的慢性病, 病人埋头吃药的话, 说是"控制",  其实是掩盖了病情, 掩盖了疾病的结果 (高血糖,高血压,高胆固醇,其它高XXX),  而病人误以为已经得到了有效的治疗!  客观事实是, 埋头吃药不但无用或者用处不大, 而且严重误导病人, 使病人不去努力解决引起这些疾病的深层病因, 如戒烟少酒, 健康饮食, 多体力活动等等!

为了对自己的健康和生命负责,吃药一定要吃得慎重、吃得明明白白。请听这位诚实、正直、良知尚存的医生对你说。

(John Abramson is an American physician and the author of the book
Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. He has worked as a family doctor in Appalachia and in Hamilton, Massachusetts, and has served as chairman of the department of family practice at Lahey Clinic. He was a Robert Wood Johnson Fellow and is on the clinical faculty of Harvard Medical School, where he teaches primary care.)

他的著述Overdosed America简介:Using the examples of Vioxx, Celebrex, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, and anti-depressants, Overdosed America shows that at the heart of the current crisis in American medicine lies the commercialization of medical knowledge itself.

Drawing on his background in statistics, epidemiology, and health policy, John Abramson, M.D., reveals the ways in which the drug companies have misrepresented statistical evidence, misled doctors, and compromised our health. The good news is that the best scientific evidence shows that reclaiming responsibility for your own health is often far more effective than taking the latest blockbuster drug.

You—and your doctor—will be stunned by this unflinching exposé of American medicine.
