News articles in the past few years have been full of the statistics and stories of individuals who have suffered serious health consequences, including death, from dangerous pharmaceutical and psychiatric drugs put on the market by drug companies. Among these drugs are Vioxx, Celebrex, Paxil, Prozac, Fen-Phen, and Ketek. According to Consumer Affairs, the FDA has reported that the arthritis drug Vioxx may have contributed to 27,785 heart attacks and cardiac arrests between the years of 1999 and 2003. Merck, the drug company that produced Vioxx, eventually removed it from the market. The Wall Street Journal, however, reported that the company tried for years to protect it and keep news of its health risks away from public knowledge.
