Death by Prescription free pdf This is the harrowing story about a father, a family, a daughter. Fifteen year-old Vanessa began taking Prepulsid after her doctor prescribed the drug to alleviate a stomach disorder. Suddenly, unexpectedly, she collapses and dies in her family home. Confusion, grief, remorse get channelled by Terence Young into determination to get to the root causes of his daughters death. His investigations take him from Health Canada to the Coroners Office, from the sales people of major drug manufacturers to the medical profession, from the legal profession to the courts. This is a compelling story, a remarkably well written and fully documented book which takes you into the inner workings of the global drug companies, the intricate relationships between the pharmaceutical industries and the regulatory bodies of government, the complicity of the medical profession and the tragic consequences for the public. Terence H. Youngs deeply personal story will affect every reader.
