    How Corrupt Deals and Misguided Medical Regulations are Bankrupting America—and What to do About It
    By William Faloon
    September 2011; Hardcover; 381 pages; ISBN: 978-1-60766-011-8
    $24.00 $21.60 (10% discount!) Free Shipping

    Our healthcare system is irretrievably broken, and now it is devastating the US financially. Pharmocracy uncovers egregious FDA incompetence and abuse, and shows how over-regulation causes lifesaving medications to be delayed or suppressed altogether, and makes consumers pay inflated prices for FDA-approved therapies that are only minimally effective and often dangerous. A free market approach to healthcare, Faloon argues, would spare Medicare and Medicaid from insolvency, while significantly improving the health of the American public.

    The medical environment has become a labyrinth of interlocking corporate, hospital, and governmental boards of directors, infiltrated by the drug companies. Drug company representatives write glowing articles about pharmaceuticals, which are then signed by physicians paid handsomely for their cooperation, though they may not know the adverse side effects of the drugs they promote. The most toxic substances are often approved first, while milder and more natural alternatives are ignored for financial reasons. It’s death by medicine.
