Modern medicine, an emblem of scientific progress, can paradoxically both heal and harm. These prescribed treatments can potentially damage our health, as side effects can range from minor annoyities to severe problems such as kidney damage or heart failure.

Some antacids interfere with nutrient absorption, causing long-term deficiencies. Mental health medications are necessary yet laden with side effects.
