"NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The escalating global recall of Zantac, the heartburn pill that once ranked as the world’s best-selling drug, has its roots not in government oversight or a high-profile lawsuit, but in a tiny online pharmacy here whose founders feared that U.S. drugs might not be as safe as people think."

[www.washingtonpost.com]

"Clark-Joseph, an economist with some chemistry training, was drawn to the idea because he kept getting sick. In graduate school, he refilled a prescriptiononly to find that the new, supposedly identical drug didn’t work. When his doctor told him to try another pharmacy because he probably got a bad batch, he was appalled. After similar incidents occurred, he started searching for a lab that would verify the chemical contents of his medication. When he didn’t find an obvious solution, he called his college friend David Light, who had worked in biotech, and suggested that they partner on a business that would verify the chemical contents of drugs.

“He thought I was being kind of paranoid at first,” Clark-Joseph said."

My primary physician recommended that I read Bottle of Lies. I did. It was scary!

A small online pharmacy checks the drugs they sell while big pharmacies trust Big Pharma, the most profitable business in the country which can’t be bothered to manufacture many pharmaceuticals in the USA but rather outsource it to China and India. I’m sure the Chinese and Indians are interested in looking after our best interests. Melamine anyone...



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
