Vioxx, as a drug, did what it was supposed to, be of big help for arthritis sufferers; but unfortunately the side effects were often serious or even fatal. Vioxx was much in the news during 2004, when it was recalled worldwide, as a result of significantly increased risks of heart attack and strokes in long-term users of the drug. Many lawsuits have been filed, claiming that Merck had knowledge of such side effects years earlier and had stonewalled the truth. Their defense in court has typically been that claimants cannot be sure the ill effects came from the drug and therefore, Merck should not be liable.

|Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze: "When one New Age teacher or system becomes popular with a Brand-New Idea, then a spate of books and teachers/healers tend to follow. Most of these follow-on books are riding the coattails of the previous teacher/system. Customarily they tell us that they are offering the real thing with important extensions and improvements. Instead, I find most all of them to be of lower spiritual quality." Continued here - free read.||
