Description:

An "angrily illuminating" (The New York Times)expose of Big Pharma's corrupting influence inAmericatoday In the past few decades, America's big pharmaceutical companies have buried the idea of health under an overwhelming tide of marketing. They invent diseases, in order to sell the pills that "cure" them. They buy off doctors and researchers with resort vacations and flat-screen TVs. They advertise prescription drugs at NASCAR races, on subways, and in churches. These companies now influence every stage of the healthcare system in America--often for the worse. InOurDaily Meds, Melody Petersen connects the dots to show for the first time how subtle, far-reaching and dangerous Big Pharma's powers have become.
