Summary

Using the examples of Vioxx, Celebrex, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, and anti-depressants, ''Overdosed America'' shows that at the heart of the current crisis in American medicine lies the commercialization of medical knowledge itself. Drawing on his background in statistics, epidemiology, and health policy, John Abramson, M.D., reveals the ways in which the drug companies have misrepresented statistical evidence, misled doctors, and compromised our health. The good news is that the best scientific evidence shows that reclaiming responsibility for your own health is often far more effective than taking the latest blockbuster drug. You--and your doctor--will be stunned by this unflinching expose of American medicine.
