Bitter pills: If medicines make you sick


The fact that medicines not only have healing powers, but can sometimes lead to dependencies, physical damage and new diseases should be clear to physicians and consumers since the Contergan scandal end of the 50er.

Nevertheless, as Klaus Heilmann complains in "time bomb drug", pills and pastes with some horrendous side effects are more than ever prescribed and consumed.

800 million dollars for a new pack of pills


The former medicalProfessor The Technical University of Munich warns against the "Janus face" seemingly harmless drugs and explains how the pharmaceutical industry succeeds in repeatedly bring drugs on the market that do not keep what we promise.

Heilmann pushes the black Peter but not one-sidedly to the pharmaceutical industry, but questions the expectations of the consumers, for whom "the taking of medicines became a matter of course".

Why research results are backed up

Blockbuster of cosmetic pharmacy?


The treatise on drug misuse is essential:

When Heilmann talks about how a bacterial toxin and a tissue hormone have become "blockbusters in the field of cosmetic pharmacy", certainly not a few readers pass the desire for expensive and medically questionable cosmetics from the pharmacy.



For risks and side effects, ask Klaus Heilmann, who urges in "Zeitbombe drug" to more responsible in dealing with the small pills.

A strong appeal to the pharmaceutical industry and the medical profession. And to the consumer, who in many cases accelerates the recovery, if he simply dispenses with medicines.
