The REAL risks of new drugs
They're supposed to be the latest and greatest treatments -- big breakthroughs to help desperate patients facing dangerous and even deadly health conditions.
But don't swallow that pill just yet!
A new study reveals the DARK SIDE to the fast and furious rush to bring new meds to market as quickly as possible, showing how many of them have hidden dangers.
And they're NOT listed on the label!
The new study of 222 new drugs approved by the FDA between 2001 and 2010 finds 32 percent were forced to add major warnings AFTER they were already on the market.
These were risks that didn't turn up in the clinical studies used to approve them.
Instead, we only found out about them after patients started taking them out in the REAL WORLD.
In at least three cases, the risks were so bad the drugs had to be pulled off the market.
At least that one's gone for good. But dozens of others are STILL out there, with at least 61 serious warnings added to 43 of those meds... and I'm not talking about the fine-print disclaimers you need to break out the magnifying glass to read.
These are the "BLACK BOX" warnings reserved for the most dangerous risks.
This new study shows the utter insanity of the rapid-fire approvals process, which has led to drugs being rushed to pharmacies long before the true dangers are known.
In essence, American patients are being turned into unwitting guinea pigs in MASSIVE drug experiments!
This study also shows precisely why I take the exact opposite approach of most mainstream physicians: Because I refuse to let Big Pharma experiment on my patients.
I do my own homework. I read the studies for myself, and I never trust the slick-talking drug company sales reps, who'll never tell you the full story.
They're out to score sales, and your safety just isn't their priority.
But the problem with many new drugs isn't just the unknown risks. It's that even when they "work" as advertised, many of them AREN'T better than the older drugs they're supposed to replace.
They're not safer... and they're not more effective.
If your doc is a little too eager to switch you from a reliable old treatment to something flashy and new, slow him down... ask questions... and don't touch the stuff unless you're absolutely certain about his answers.
Better yet, speak to holistic medical doctor who can give you ALL your options, including drug-free alternatives that are often far safer and just as effective as many common mainstream drugs.
