The bad news is everywhere...death by prescription drugs. Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston get the headlines. But there are thousands of other people who suffer and die because of the wrong prescription. This is one harrowing story about a father, a family, a daughter. Fifteen year of Vanessa began taking Prepulsid after her doctor prescribed the drug to alleviate a stomach disorder. Suddenly, unexpectedly, she collapses and dies in her family home. Confusion, grief, remorse get channeled by Terence Young into determination to get to the root causes of his daughter's death. His investigations take him from Health Canada to the Corner's Office, from the sales people of major drug manufacturers to the medical profession, from the legal profession to the courts. This is a compelling story, a remarkably well-written and fully documented book which takes you into the inner workings of the global drug companies, the intricate relationships between the pharmaceutical industries and the regulatory bodies of government, the complicity of the medical profession and the tragic consequences for the public. Terence H. Young's deeply personal story will affect every reader. Death by Prescription has also been the subject of a documentary film.

The major pharmaceutical companies, according to John le Carre who has based his novelThe Constant Gardeneron their depredations "are engaged in the systematic corruption of the medical profession, country by country." Jeffrey Robinson can back up that charge. InPrescription Games, Jeffrey Robinson exposes the yawning abyss between the claims to altruism made by pharmaceutical companies and the harsh reality of their everyday practice. When the industry claims that the enormous markup they charge for new drugs pays the cost of developing new ones, they don't say that as much as 80 per cent of R&D money is actually directed at developing drugs designed to compete with existing brands, or at creating variations on drugs whose patents are about to expire expenditures only the industry itself (and its shareholders) will benefit from. Within the industry, there are "blockbuster" drugs that create vast wealth for the companies that manufacture them. Most are designed to treat conditions that are endemic among prosperous, western populations that can afford them. But there are no blockbuster drugs to treat diseases like tuberculosis, cholera, and malaria that ravage the Third World, because Third World countries can't afford the prices. People in Africa and Asia die from new strains of tuberculosis while people in Europe and North America are offered expensive treatments for obesity, hair loss, and sexual dysfunction. In this hard-hitting expose, Robinson also examines the extension of patent protection, the end of generic drug competition in Canada, the Nancy Olivieri scandal (how a drug manufacturer fought to conceal research findings that would damage sales of its product), the illicit drug trade, and espionage among drug manufacturers.
