What makes a drug dangerous?
Many factors may make a drug dangerous or deadly. Drug manufacturers may omit serious information from the FDA and consumers about the side effects of drugs. Drug makers may also conduct flawed studies by not studying the side effects of their drugs for a long enough period of time or conducting a study with a small amount of participants. Flawed or dishonest medical studies of pharmaceutical products are another avenue drug makers may use in order to have their products reach American consumers.
