An entertaining video with information that will help you cut your medication

James McCormack, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia, has produced an entertaining video“Bohemian Polypharmacy” – a parody of Queen’s classic song “Bohemian Rhapsody” – a song all about polypharmacy – taking more medicines than are clinically indicated.

Polypharmacy, as well as the lazy and ignorant prescribing of singular medications, is now widespread in New Zealand, making us one of the most heavily medicated nations in the world!  Which is appalling for a country that prides itself on its clean, green outdoors and healthy lifestyle - all fantasy - of course!

I would like to see the Good Professor produce a parody musical video extolling the virtues of non-drug treatments of modern ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure and depression.
