A discussion with Attorney Jim Gottstein about the release of the Zyprexa papers which revealed to the public the terrible physical effects of Zyprexa, an antipsychotic medication created and sold by pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly. The papers revealed that thousands of individuals developed diabetes, gained unusal amounts of weight and/or died and that Lilly knew, suppressed and lied about these so-called side effects of the drug. We will also discuss Jim's efforts to help those individuals diagnosed as mentally ill to fight against forced hospitalizations and treatments that violated their civil and human rights. 

Jim's excellent book can be purchased at both Amazon.com and BN.com
