Bad Medicine Counterfeit Drugs Counterfeit medication is becoming a major problem. You don’t know if you look at a drug, you smell the drug which is real. According to the World Health Organization, 10% of the traded drugs in the world could be counterfeit. Of the million deaths of malaria, some people feel 20% is to counterfeit medication. You can’t look at a drug and be absolute certain it’s for real. You should check your sources. I’m not saying online pharmacies that your insurance company recommends. We’re talking about some internet source we can buy from. There are even local drugstores that have been accused and you hear raids once in a while that the drugstores have bought counterfeit medication; the total value is huge. If your medication is $300.00 a month, you get the profit margin in pharmacies or internet pharmacy can make. Be careful, check your sources. Remember, don’t be internet-wise, be wise.
