The ABCs of Disease Mongering: An Epidemic in 26 Letters.

The ABCs of Disease Mongering: An Epidemic in 26 Letters

Alan Cassels (illustrated by Jeremy Gordaneer) (Emdash Publishing, 2007)

Visualize Dr. Seuss taking on an overmedicated and overdiagnosed culture and you have Alan Cassel's newest book. Looking at an array of disorders, from A to Z, created by the pharmaceutical industry, this illustrated verse-form alphabet is meticulously footnoted for therapeutic use by consumers and health policy-makers. The outrageous humour in the book is only outdone by the outrageous facts revealed.
