The National Media will usually start picking up on an issue
when a celebrity is touched by a problem.
We usually hear of addictions and rehab being a part of a famous individuals life. Weather it be a movie star, rock star ,or sports figure. A death become front page. I suppose they are just not willing to take on big business and the pharmaceutical companies. Prescription or over-the-counter drugs put 1.3 million Americans at risk of death each year.
The National Media has really grasped the story of the dangers of prescription drugs in light of Whitney Houston’s tragic death. They are standing up and taking notice to what prescription drugs are doing to people.
It is reported that over 30,00 people die in America alone from oral pain medications.
We all love Whitney, her music and movies. Such a tragedy to lose such a beautiful soul at her young age. Her music will always be with us.
We will Always Love You Whitney!
