Adverse reactions to medical drugs cause thousands of deaths in the UK every year. Statins, aspirin and other drugs are taken en masse, whether they help or harm. Our one-size-fits-all approach to medicine is primitive. With an introduction from the eminent British scientist Professor Joyce Tait CBE, director of the Institute for Innovation Generation in the Life Sciences, this book explores these groundbreaking advances and the coming sea change in how we detect and treat disease. It also discusses the other issues we will face: Who will have access to the highly sensitive data? Who will fund research when mass prescription drugs are finished? This important new book will help us wake up to taking charge of our health in a completely new era.
