Good drugs, Bad drugs

The extent of the problem of counterfeit drugs is unknown, . Counterfeiting is difficult to detect, investigate, and quantify. So, it is hard to know or even estimate the true extent of the problem. What is known is that they occur worldwide and are more prevalent in developing countries. It is estimated that upwards of 15% of drugs worldwide are counterfeit, and in some countries more than 50% of the drug supply is made up of counterfeit drugs. Furthermore, the World Health Organization estimates that the annual earnings of counterfeit drugs are over US$35 billion .Counterfeit medications may also contain incorrect ingredients, improper dosages of the correct ingredients, or they may contain hazardous ingredients.
The PSI is a not-for-profit corporation formed by the major drug companies to collate their fake drug information to cooperate in fighting the racket. Based in Vienna, Virginia, United States, the PSI holds the only known comprehensive and updated source of fake drug information. The PSI Web site ( states, “On a daily basis, many individuals unknowingly risk death or serious injury to their health by taking counterfeit pharmaceuticals.” But its databank, which health workers see as holding key information to prevent patients from taking life-threatening fakes, is not accessible to the WHO, health authorities, or the public. Such is the secrecy of the PSI's information, that access is restricted even between its member companies, which include the 15 largest drug manufacturers.
Those living in third world counties with supplies from South East Asia or main land China are at the highest risk, side affects include death, strange growths and incoherent dribbling.
