Pharmaceutical Dangers: What Has Science Done?

It is thanks to the many innovations that modern science and technology have birthed that people are able to live and breathe in an era safer from plague than ever before. Techniques and methods on eradicating illness have become so rampant that what could have decimated an entire population in untreated weeks, months, or years – much like the event of the Black Plague in Europe in the 1300s – can now be safely treated with effective quarantine measures and vaccines and anti-serums for prevention.

However, it is also thanks to a further understanding of the human being to know that though people are, in flesh, simply another animal in the food chain of events – the power of minds with more cognitive ability can be more complicated than, at first, thought to be. The mind can also get sick in ways that are not easily detectable – such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsions such as trichotillomania (the incessant pulling of one’s hair without conscious control) –and there is no way to prevent it.

For centuries, people have thought mental illness as simply an invention or a child’s cry for attention. It has taken so long for people to recognize it as a problem that needs a solution. This solution, however, has its own failures – as what comes from the process of trial and error, as errors are inevitable – and as with any sickness, according to the website of Williams Kherkher, the medicines used to treat something as complex as the human mind can have devastating side effects elsewhere.

There have been some cases handled by the law offices of Williams Kherkher that have been due to medication of this nature. Though effective in treating hormonal imbalances in some measure, some of the effects of these medicines can extend to the physical aspect and bring forth further medical conditions. According to the website of Williams Kherkher, this can include birth defects in newborn children if a mother has consumed a certain drug.

Seek help should you need it – for both a mental medical condition or for defective drugs. Though humans are prone to error, there are still people who fight to do what is morally and legally right.
