A Miracle Drug for an Advertising Generated Condition?
Could this be an example of a drug company advertising a miracle drug to be used for a condition which the advertising itself generates by its advertising to normal adults? Maybe. If you didn't watch CBS 60 Minutes tonight, here is the link to the full text
