Sorry - just another comment on TV ads over here. Perhaps I'm watching a spoof TV channel and these things aren't for real. Well, if that's the case, I've been suckered!

There are several ads for health care products and medicines. It seems that it's a legal requirement for these ads to list all the possible side-effects. Two products in particular have caught my attention as the potential side effects include depression, suicide, intestinal bleeding, stroke, loss of sleep, drowsiness and the list goes on and on. It's a wonder they sell any of the stuff!

I've just watched an ad for a law firm which lists a whole heap of side-effects and offers to sue the manufacturers on your behalf. Included in the options are "you may have suffered death. If so you may be entitled to compensation". What?

The ads are more entertaining than the programmes! I hope it's at least 20 years before these things hit the UK. By that time I probably won't notice!
