Overmedicated America

We’re taking too many drugs, too much more than what is needed and much more than our bodies biological limitations! As Socrates said, medicine “acts as both remedy and poison” and that “this charm, this spellbinding virtue, this power of fascination, can be­—alternately or simultaneously—beneficent or maleficent.”…And now the greed of pharmaceuticals have pushed us toward being poisoned by the prescription drugs.
