When brainwashing gets really dangerous

"U.S. regulators are arguing that television ads for drugs and medical devices should avoid distracting images and music that can reduce viewers' comprehension of potential side effects. Advertisements also should use similar type styles and voice-overs when conveying benefits and risks, according to the FDA.

The guidelines follow complaints that manufacturers use various techniques in their widely seen television ads and other promotions to downplay risks while emphasizing potential benefits. Leaving out or minimizing side-effect information is the most frequent violation."

For this reason I think Alternative Medicine is good.
With it you mainly buy illusions.
You feel good because you are doing something good for your body, you are fighting aging and achieving health.
What you get is something very close to water or a little bit more, but, at least water does no harm...
