The author goes on the explore the barely-regulated US pharmaceutical environment of snake-oil remedies marketed directly to consumers, who diagnosed themselves or consulted druggists and bought whatever they wanted for self-medication. The proliferation of sulfa-based remedies from less reliable chemical companies led to multiple deaths and finally led to federal laws updating and strengthening the regulatory power of the FDA. This is a highly relevant story in this age of government deregulation.
