online pharmacies

The reading passage argues that many problems are associated with online pharmacies and it would in the public's interest to ban internet-based drugstores. However, the speaker in the lecture casts doubt on the claims made in the article. He mentions that buying medications online offers customers a multitude of benefits and abolishing e-pharmacies could have unfavorable ramifications.

To begin with, the author maintains that the herbal drugs from these sources are not approved by the food and drug adminstration since they do not meet the recommended guidelines. Nevertheless, the lecturer offsets this point of view by declaring that Although no approval was issued for these medicines, this should not deter consumers from purchasing them as other countries have been using them for hundreds of years and they never harmed anyone. The listening further delineates an example to illustrate the strong safety record of these remedies. According to the lecture, the morning-after pill has been administered as a way of birth control in France even though it's not tested in the US.

On top of that, the writer is worried about people bypassing the doctor's consultation and directly ordering medicines from these websites. Given the fact that the knowledge of most individuals in the medical field is limited, they might select medications of severe adverse effects or of a wrong dosage, which would end up doing more harm than good for the patients. In contrast, the professor in the lecture indicates that in addition to the high cost of a doctor's visit, people have to wait long period of time to get seen by a professional and online pharmacies could overcome this problem. Plus, the lecturer brings up the fact that the internet is filled with a huge number of articles about drugs, which are written by pharmaceutical companies and specialists. Thus, by reading these online resources, consumers are competent enough to make decisions about their own health.

Lastly, the excerpt postulates that the origins of these herbal remedies is not known since they are manufactured in foreign nations, which do not hold the same standards as the US, even if the labels and the instructions may be in English. The lecturer, on the other hand, asserts that these online outlets provide patients with lower prices than ordinary brick-and-mortar pharmacies. Hence, we should not blame the consumer for seeking cheaper alternatives given the fact of rising heathcare costs in the United States.
