Today, half of the U.S. population takes prescription medications to help safeguard health. But some doctors say that certain drugs might actually be robbing people of vital nutrients, causing serious side effects. According to medical expert Hyla Cass, M.D., taking one or more prescription drugs every day for any period of time could cause people to experience additional symptoms that are considered "part of the disease."
In her new book, "Supplement Your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutrition" (Basic Health Publications), Dr. Cass explains the nutrient depletion side effects of the most commonly prescribed drugs. She then provides nutritional supplement guidelines.
