According to investigative journalist, Katherine Eban, there is a lot of fraud going on with generic medications -- putting patient safety at risk.Today, 90 percent of our pharmaceutical market is comprised of generics, the majority of which are manufactured overseas. The thought is that these drugs are as effective as their brand-name counterparts, just less expensive.  Is that really true? According to investigative journalist, Katherine Eban, there is a lot of fraud going on with these generic medications. Her book, Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom, exposes the deceit behind generic drug manufacturing. Drawing on exclusive accounts from whistleblowers and regulators, as well as thousands of pages of confidential FDA documents, Eban reveals an industry where fraud is rampant, companies routinely falsify data, and executives circumvent almost every principle of safe manufacturing to minimize cost and maximize profit, confident in their ability to fool inspectors. Meanwhile, patients unwittingly consume medicine with unpredictable and dangerous effects. Listen as Eban joins Dr. Roizen to explain how this could happen -- and what can be done to change the process and ultimately ensure the health and safety of those who consume generics.

 Encore Episode: What's Your Gut Telling You? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Dr. Friedman shares why so many people have unhealthy guts and what we can do to achieve optimal health.The gut is often referred to as the "second brain," because it has its own enteric nervous system that works independently of the cerebrum. The gut helps in our decision making, hence the term “trust your gut” and “what’s your gut instinct telling you?” People think that love begins in the heart, but actually, it’s in the gut. This is why you get butterflies in your stomach when you fall in love. Scientists used to believe our emotions originated in the brain but new research shows it may actually come from the gut. Think about that. If you were to hear bad news that a family member was just in a severe car accident, where would you feel pain? Immediately in your gut. This is where the term “gut-wrenching news” comes from. If you are afraid of heights and you look out of a high-rise building window, you’d feel it in your gut. The digestive tract controls our personality, mood, and even our hormones. So, what’s the magical Oz behind the curtain that has so much control over our body? It’s called the microbiome, a group of good microorganisms that live in our gut. When they don’t function properly, this can lead to food intolerance, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune disease, depression, thyroid disease and even cancer. In this episode, Dr. Friedman shares why so many people have unhealthy guts and what we can do to achieve optimal health. --- To stay up to date with Dr. Friedman’s latest articles, videos and interviews, go to DrDavidFriedman.com.
