Dr. Goetzsche exposes big pharma as organized crime

A pill for every ill

Many of these drugs affect the brain and old people tolerate that very very badly. They fall and when they break a hip a quarter of them die. For example anti-depressant drugs are used in more than 10% of our (Denmark) elderly, and they seem to kill 3% of them every year. ... And then they interact in ways we know almost nothing about.
