"This valuable anthology highlights the dangers women face from a powerful global drug industry that recognizes neither boundaries nor ordinary ethics. Equally important, Adverse Effects gives us a glimpse of what a more caring, woman-oriented health system would look like, both in the Third World and in the industrialized countries. Adverse Effects is essential reading for health activists everywhere."
