Don't read this if you love the current medical industry. Or if you love being on multiply drugs every day. If you feel somethings not right when the drug companies are pushing drugs at us (and our kids) all day, every day on the TV, you are right. Read this book and get your eyes opened. Did you know in Australia, drug companies can not advertise on TV? Lawyers either but that's a whole other topic.
I always wondered why Doctors would pull out the prescription pad so quickly. This book gives the reader an insight into the world of medicine as well as the disconnect between the treatment of health, (alternative products) and the treatment of disease, (doctors prescriptions and the big pharma companies). It does make one wonder when it seems that one prescription medication has side effects that need to be treated by a second or even a third prescription medication!
lots of really good info and not so fun fun facts about our medical history. a good companion C Dean's "the miracle of magnesium", now in its 3rd edition. . I gave both books to a nurse friend who of course never reads such things and avoided these as well... Closed minded attitudes like that in our medical world are all the more reason you should make it a point to find and read both books. Its not a good thing that my grandmother knew more about the helpful effects of magnesium and other herbs than most Dr Idiots... My grandmother lived to be 94, i'm looking foe a new Dr Idiot since my last one died in his 50s.
I would recommend this book to anyone who does not believe they are getting any better after spending a month or two on a prescription drug or who has noticed any new symptoms. It details processes and critiques policies used to bring any drug to market. Do you believe you suffer from a prescription drug deficiency? Many conditions, including obesity, may be the result of inadequate nutrients --vitamins and minerals-- in the standard American diet.
This is a well written and thoughtful look at what is wrong with today's "health care system". Dr. Dean holds back nothing and explains really clearly what has gone wrong and why. We all need to make some major changes in the way we view doctors and the drugs that they are constantly pushing on us. What we learn from Dr. Dean is that we all must take charge of our own health and to listen to our own bodies and our own intuition. I highly recommend this book.
Dr. Dean did a lot of research for this book. I like it when there is a lot of basic science that is presented in an easy to read way for the non-medical reader. This information is very important to know if you are going to have any control over medical decisions in your life.
