You can rest assured that your personal information is not being released. However, the negative impact from the use of this information can lead to marketing and sales reps pushing alternative drugs made by their own companies.

What if this caused your doctor to prescribe you a medication before actually taking the time to sift through the studies and carefully weighing the results of the prescription? The result could be deadly.
