From all the wonderful stories, the books, poems and songs throughout history we are conditioned to believe that the highest form of love is romantic love between a man and a woman. But the unconditional love connecting the vulnerability of a child with the protection of a loving parent transcends this world in a special way. Nothing could be more important to our humanity. It is the most common way that ordinary people get a chance to be like a loving Creator. Anyone that intentionally undermines that protection is committing an undeniable wrong. No society should tolerate it for any reason.

About the Book...

This book was brought to my attention by one of my co-workers... I am surprised that Mr. Young has not been approached about a made-for-TV movie on the subject. Truly, enough is not being done to spread the story about overuse of prescriptions and their side effects, especially when the patient is on a multitude of other medications.

 – Louanne Spencer, Chiropractic Assistant

This gripping account of his journey is highly personal.” “... a broad and free-thinking critique of how the global economy promotes unwise and unethical use of prescription drugs.

 – Thomas L. Perry, MD, in the September 2009 issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal

...The most interesting book I read this year. I’ll strongly recommend it to my colleagues.

 – Pierre Biron, MD, Honorary Professor of Pharmacology, University of Montreal, co-author, Practical Drug Safety from A to Z.

Death by Prescription is an important book to read—and understand—for anyone interested in their own health, or that of their family.

 – Richard Ciano, Executive Director, School of Practical Politics, The Manning Centre for Building Democracy.

This book is a ‘must have’ for every household and especially for seniors. Terence Young tells his readers what most doctors won’t – that all drugs can be poisonous – and what each of us can do about it.

 – Rev Canon Derwyn S. Shea, Chairman and CEO, St Hilda’s Towers Independent and Assisted Living Residence, Toronto.

A compelling, well-structured read that will be appreciated by any reader with an interest in the inner workings of big drug companies. And given that millions of Canadians take prescription drugs every year, this should be a large readership indeed.

 – Paul Challen, from the book review in Quill & Quire.
