Across The Globe Drug Commercials Are Only Allowed in United States...

Maybe this has something to do with why we're the unhealthiest nation in the world.  Yep, that's right, out of all the developed nations for  health statistics, we are at the bottom again.  We actually continue to be at the bottom, which has been the case for years.

I had an idea because when we go to visit my wife's family in Canada, I noticed there are no pharmaceutical commercials on television.  That's when I really first realized this fact.

Here's another interesting fact I learned - when a drug commercial tells what the drug does, they have to mention the side effects.  If you see one of those commercials where there's just a couple on a beach holding hands and at the end you see "Cialis" come onto the screen, then they don't have to mention all the side effects.

Otherwise there's two and a half minutes of "...fatigue, bleeding out of your eyes, headache, diarrhea.... They are usually very scary, sometimes more so than the condition you're treating!
