Worth watching and sharing.

A good documentary... I would give it a B or B+. I'm going to recommend it to my friends (some of whom are addicted to prescription meds). The pharmaceutical industry gets a bad rap (rightfully so), as does the FDA. I've heard people in the industry claim that the FDA is responsible for more deaths than most genuine illnesses. There is a revolving door between the drug industry and the FDA. Perhaps part of the solution is getting the Federal Govt out of it entirely.

The one issue that bugs me had to do with the director's decision to run music with lyrics on top of footage when people are speaking. They both seem to be at the same volume level, which makes it very difficult to hear what the person being interviewed is saying.
