Episode Summary

EDIT
Health: The Business of Disease
AIRED:
These days - if you watch TV - television drug commercials are so ubiquitous that it's hard to remember a time when they didn't exist. But direct-to-consumer advertising, as it is called, has only been around in the US for 10 years, and it's illegal in many other countries.
