I protest the glut of drug advertisements claiming to handle made-up diseases with drugs. Chief among the offenders are ads that claim conditions actually resulting from poor diet or exercise, are real diseases of the brain, the products of chemical imbalances. This is a flat lie unsupported by medical evidence. Yet it is claimed over and over as if saying it enough will make it true. NEVER do the drug ads suggest you should eat properly or take some vitamins and minerals. They say to take drugs, of course. Which are damaging to people and do nothing to remedy their actual physical needs but only create further deficiency. Seems to me the FDA should not allow this fraudulent misleading advertising.
