In this hard-hitting indictment of the pharmaceutical industry, the authors show how drug companies are systematically using their dominating influence in the world of medical science to widen the very boundaries that define illness. Mild problems are redefined as serious… illness, and common complaints are labeled as medical conditions requiring drug treatments. Reveals how expanding the boundaries of illness and lowering the threshold for treatments is creating millions of new patients and billions in new profits, in turn threatening to bankrupt national healthcare systems all over the world. 2006.
