Wellness Wednesday: Prescription Drug Ads, Breastfeeding & Diabetes


The American Medical Association recently voted in favor of a ban that would stop direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs and medical devices. According to a new study, 60% of prescription drug ads and 80% of over the counter drug ads are misleading or false.
