Mensa News Release
Mensa Health Sciences Seminar
Mensa membership is not required; this seminar is open to the public.
On Friday November 25, at 7PM, Sam and Bunny Sewell are hosting:
DANGEROUS PRESCRIPTION – A PBS Frontline Special
Have you noticed that shortly after a drug company advertizing blitz about the latest “wonder drug,” there is another advertizing blitz from lawyers wanting you to join a lawsuit against the manufacturers of the same “wonder drug.” “Dangerous Prescription” is a look inside the FDA, its recent record, and the debate over whether our nation’s drug safety system is broken.
As medications assume ever-larger roles in health care, the importance of FDA approval mounts. But what do average Americans know about the FDA process? What happens when a drug product harms consumers, and what role do drug companies play in approving and monitoring drugs?
DANGEROUS PRESCRIPTION offers a FRONTLINE investigation into the FDA and drug safety process, revealing the questionable effectiveness of the FDA in identifying or testing the efficacy of drugs they “approve” that soon are shown to not work, or cause significant harm.
This is an extremely important issue to millions of Americans!
Please share this with anyone who takes, or cares about, people who take prescription medications.
Always good discussions afterward. Feel free to bring friends!
The follow up seminar, offering healthy alternatives to drugs, will be held the following Friday, Dec 2nd at 7PM.
