“A medical journal study found that 44 percent of drug advertising in medical journals, and 42 percent of drug information given doctors by drug company representatives, would lead physicians to improperly prescribe medications to their patients. More than 100,000 people in the United States die every year from adverse reactions to their prescription drugs and more than two million people a year have serious but nonfatal reactions.”
