Here's a recap of blog posts and other news from the past month.
RxISK launched in 2012. This New Year feels more portentous than any since then. Few can predict what 2017 might bring. Nothing is certain except that treatment-induced death (which ordinarily means drug-induced death, especially if opioid overdoses are included) will be the modal mode of death. More people will die for this reason than for any other. It is also likely the modal mode of disability.
Problems on this scale have triggered revolutions in the past, but the rallying cry, "People of the planet, rise up, you have nothing to lose but your Pills!" is not likely to catch on. The RxISK Revolution needs more co-operation, not antagonism. If you want to see change, join us.
Thank you for your support.
Your feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated.
