      Drug Dangers was developed to educate the public and lend a hand to people who have been affected by defective drugs and medical devices.

Pharmaceutical companies are trusted to put safe products on the shelves, yet thousands of people lose their lives each year due to prescription medications with adverse side effects. By spreading awareness, we believe we can lower this statistic by decreasing the number of recalls, saving more lives of those who have been affected.
