Off topic: US and NZ permit drug advertising on TV, none permit tobacco advertising

Mercola March 2013

  • Big concern that the advertising of Statin drugs on TV do not mention the 900 studies which show an adverse affect
  • pharmaceutical companies spend nearly TWICE as much on marketing in the US as they do on research and development of new drugs,
  • Between 1994 and 2000, US TV drug ads increased 40-fold.
  • Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People Do Not Need Statin Drugs


Tobacco Advertising
   Actually The Philippines still permits tobacco advertisement on TV – from 7AM to noon
Direct to Consumer advertising of drugs
Perhaps TV advertising of drugs is allowed in Australia and Canada as well - see Mercola comments
