drug industry pays for studies that show their products to be safe, just like the tobacco industry for years paid "scientists" to do studies that showed no correlation between cigarettes and disease.
Just a few days ago I paid attention to the add on TV for one of these anti-depression drugs and in the warning they stated that one of the side effects of the drug was suicidal thoughts and actions. I think it is so clever how they manage to cover their butts with these warnings by burying somewhere in a long list of seemingly innocuous side effects the really dangerous ones, and then use language that disguises the really dangerous ones. "Suicidal thoughts and actions." Why don't they just say, "This drug might cause you to commit suicide." And if there is a danger it might make you violent against yourself, couldn't it also make you violent against others?
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
