Medical Disclaimers on Prime Time TV
Whenever I hear the Pharmaceutical company advertisement disclaimers, I shut off the sound on my TV. The disclaimers are distasteful, and I actually feel that they have a negative effect on the physical and mental wellbeing of the listeners.
Every night just as I am about to sit down and eat dinner, I find myself being forced to listen to medical disclaimers for Drug company products. The FDA forces the Drug companies to air these disclaimers by law. The drug companies simply do not have any choice!
Every 15 minutes the drug companies keep telling us about the multitude of ill effects that we can get from using their product; diarrhea, severe stomach pains, severe nausea, vomiting, constipation, headache confusion, hallucinations, convulsions, Liver problems, urinary tract infection, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, and death. The drug companies are forced to recite the disclaimers to protect themselves against FDA regulations and law suits.
What would happen if you were to advise a young child of hundreds of ways that he could get sick. Every ten minutes, seven days a week! It doesn’t take a college professor to come up with the answer! Honestly I have been brainwashed one too many times by the disclaimers.
I believe that the FDA should eliminate the vocal disclaimer, and replace it with a link to the disclaimer, on the Internet! Indirect disclaimer presentation would spare the general public, the inadvertent brainwashing effect of drug company advertisements.
I personally take control of my physical and mental well-being, by using the power of positive thinking! I absolutely do not dwell on anything negative, unless it is in the process of trying to develop a solution. In my opinion I feel that these constant bombardments of medical disclaimers are interfering with the general public’s ability to deal with and control their own physical and mental wellness.
I personally believe that the FDA should direct the drug companies, to present their disclaimers as Internet links as opposed to the current mandatory vocal presentation.
