Item description for Dangerous Legal Drugs: The Poisons in Your Medicine Chest by William Campbell Douglass II & MD...
What You Must Know About The Poisons in Your Medicine Chest. If you knew what we know about the most popular prescription and over-the-counter drugs, you'd be sick. That's why Dr. Douglass wrote Dangerous (Legal) Drugs. He gives you the low-down on 15 different categories of drugs: everything from painkillers and cold remedies to tranquilizers and powerful cancer drugs. Organized medicine should stop worrying about competition from alternative health practitioners, such as chiropractors and homeopaths, and clean up its own act. How can doctors expect their patients to have any confidence in their prescriptions or their advice on such life and death matters as cancer therapy, if patients are wondering how much money doctors are making because they are suggesting one particular line of therapy as opposed to another? Americans, barraged with warnings about the dangers of crack and other street drugs, have more to fear from the medicine they get from their doctor. Most Americans will not come into contact with crack, but they can get exposed to some lethal stuff, and be completely unaware of it, from their family doctor.

Eye opener about pharmaceuticals Nov 10, 2007
A friend of mine recommended this book to me, otherwise I probably would have never picked it up because the cover isn't appealing to me. But I'm really glad I read it. The author gives numerous specific medications and their dangers.
I was stunned to read about tagamet, a prescription drug that is used for ulcers and other stomach problems. I personally took it for about a year when I was facing some personal difficulties which caused me to have a very delicate stomach. He tells the story of a man who was taking it that had permanent health problems from the side effects. Apparently, tagamet prevents the body from excreting or removing some toxins. The man in the story became poisoned after mowing his lawn by the chemicals that had been applied to his grass. The story was even reported in the Wall Street Journal, but when you look at the side effects in the PDR for tagamet, all it says is: breasts may develop in men, and headaches.
Anyone who is interested in natural health should have this book in their collection.
