Get Real, Get A Prescription!

I was at the cinema this weekend, watching the brilliant "Slumdog Millionaire", but was highly disturbed by an advert that preceded said movie.

The text on YouTube that accompanies this advert explains the background to this ad very well:

"This is an advert from Pfizer in response to research which found one in 10 men in the UK purchase prescription-only medicines from unregulated sources such as internet sites, every year. It is estimated that between 50-90 per cent of medicines sold in this way have proven to be counterfeit which means they are taking a real gamble with health."

As always, there is an accompanying website,, that gives you a lot more information about the dangers involved and an email address where you can report counterfeit medication.
