| Dear Sirs, I wanted to comment on the 'general' over use and drugging of our American people. If you watch television, or read a magazine, you are barraged with drug adds.
It's a massive 'brain washing' effect on our population.
I found I wanted to have one of those 'purple pills' because obviously, everyone is having one, and they all look like they are with it.
Some nights on TV you can see several adds in one commercial break... how did we ever survive before.
As to a chemical imbalance, that's just plain salseman crap.
How about the FDA running adds about not taking drugs? How about a campain on seeing how healthy one is by how long it has been since one has had a pill? Or is that against the FDA purpose to help foster the drug industries? Health by deffinition would be not needing to be drugged in order to live.
Nutrition is where attention should be placed. Good clean healthy nutrition and exercise. 95% of us Americans will survive better with this information rather than that purple pill. (It took me over a year to hear what it was actually for!)
We are being misled and lied to. We wouldn't do this kind of slimmy campain to our enimies yet here we are ravaging our own.
Well, I guess you got my viewpoint...
Sincerely, Mark Schlaich
