I don't get much TV any more and I believe this is one of the reasons why it jumps out at me so easily whenever I visit somebody who has their TV turned on and a commercial ad for prescription drugs comes on.
First thing that jumps out at me is - do people ever really listen to these commercials... I mean reallly listen with full focused attention ? Especially when the tv ad gets to the part where the quiet voice - over is phased in towards the end of the ad and gently whispers advice and warnings such as " stop taking _______ if you experience seizures....or liver damage... or heart palpitations.....or failing kidneys...or oily discharge from the rectum....or you see blue streaks....or your hair begins to fall out....or..... or...." How do you think that kinda risk stacks up against a little bit of Comfrey?
I look at people like my aged mother who I know, sadly, sits in front of her tv hours every day with that glossy-eyed glow of MSM-sponsored Alpha brainwave activity, and I know that she is a perfect of example of somebody who is watching and listening BUT does not really hear this kind of info given out by the same dark side FDA gang that is concerned about you running into a little bit of Comfrey.
