Contents Unbound: the strange and very American liberation of big pharma -- We love it!: how the new pharma used its new muscle to create a new...you -- The full price: what living in pharma's world means for our bodies -- The end of the great buffer?: why we are more vulnerable -- Independence for generation Rx: what can be done.
Summary How has "big pharma" created a nation of pharmaceutical tribes, each with its own unique beliefs, taboos, and brand loyalties? How have powerful chemical compounds for chronic diseases, once controlled by physicians, become substances we feel entitled to, whether we need them or not? How did we come to hate drug companies but love their pills? Generation Rx will make every American who has ever taken a prescription drug look anew at what's in our medicine cabinets, and why.
