Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, talks about "The Dangers and Disastrous Effects of Prescription and Non Prescription Pain Killers."  

"The use of opioids -- a group of drugs that includes heroin and prescription painkillers -- is having a devastating impact on public health and safety in communities across the nation.” Director of U.S. Office of National Drug Control

Do you take Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet or other opioid drugs? They can lead to drug addiction. Since heroin has the same effect in the body as prescription pain killers, an addicted person may become a heroin addict because heroin is cheaper than the drugs. The Director of U.S. Office of National Drug Control believes prescription pain-killers are in large part responsible for the resurgence of heroin. In addition, non prescription pain killers, especially those containing Acetaminophen, cause very serious side-effects, including liver damage, and can also be addictive. Listen to Beverly to learn what you can do to relieve YOUR pain, without taking dangerous, addictive pain killers.
