WINGS #20-12 Mother’s Little Helper
(Frieda Werden)
Pills are more popular than ever – maybe inappropriately so
Program Title: WINGS #20-12 Mother’s Little Helper
Description: Martha Rosenberg and Kellia Ramares-Watson discuss how big pharmacy companies promote the massive number of prescriptions written in the US, including many that may be inappropriate or downright dangerous – and many of them paid with taxpayer dollars or heavily promoted by public institutions. Women and children, the poor and the incarcerated are especially vulnerable to being guinea pigs for patented drugs today.
Host(s): Kellia Ramares-Watson
Featured Speakers/Guests: Martha Rosenberg, Chicago-based author of the book Born with a Junk Food Deficiency: How Flaks, Quacks, and Hacks Pimp the Public Health

Credits: Produced by Kellia Ramares-Watson; series producer, Frieda Werden; incidental music clip, Matt Sully.
