Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston get the headlines, but there are thousands of other people who suffer and die because of the wrong prescription. This is one harrowing story about a father, a family, a daughter. After fifteen years of Vanessa taking Prepulsid to alleviate a stomach disorder, suddenly, unexpectedly, she collapsed and died in her family home. Confusion, grief, and remorse are channeled by Terence Young into determination to get to the root causes of his daughter's death. His investigations take him from Health Canada to the Corner's Office, from the salespeople 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 that 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.
