Over 80% of Active Drug Ingredients and Finished Pharmaceutical Products come from China and India. This includes the drugs in your medicine cabinet! The FDA is our protector and savior, but the FDA has little authority outside of the United States. Overseas generic pharmaceutical manufacturers do not follow Good Manufacturing Practices and often fabricate their quality assurance data, flooding U.S. pharmacies with deadly non-bioequivalent medications that have already killed many. The prevalence of drug recalls provides ample evidence that many of these inferior generic drugs are adulterated and misbranded by FDA standards. These imported drugs are putting your personal health, our nation's heath and our national security at extreme risk. Tammara cites many examples to back up his claims and also provides direct links to the references cited. This book is a MUST-READ to avoid becoming a casualty of The Great Generic Fraud.
When patients cannot afford to take their medications due to cost, adherence decreases. Morbidity (disability) and mortality (death) subsequently increase. Desperate senior citizens on fixed incomes, as well as diabetics that cannot afford their insulin, unwittingly turn to Canada and the internet as cheaper sources of medications. However, Tammara educates the reader that just because a drug may appear to ship from Canada, it is very likely a counterfeit knockoff, concocted in a faraway land by some guy in his bathtub, with an oar. The small investment in this book just might save your life by exposing the potentially deadly pitfalls of taking medications that have intentionally circumvented the protective safety net of the United States Food and Drug Administration.
