British people are taking more and more drugs prescribed by their GPs.

In the past decade, prescribing by GPs has risen more than 50 per cent.

Prescription drugs are a major factor in Britain's growing obesity problem. - Many prescription drugs, especially steroids, HRT, anti-depressants and anti-psychotics, cause sodium and water retention, i.e. fluid retention, i.e. weight gain. - This weight gain could be avoided/minimised if doctors were clued-up about the side-effects and warned patients that when taking these drugs they must avoid eating salt and salty food. - But they don't realise the warning is necessary/vitally important, and so they don't give it. - They then blame their patient/victim who gains weight, telling them that they are eating too much and/or not taking enough exercise.

GPs' reckless over-prescribing should be curbed BY LAW! - They are destroying the nation's health with this pharmaceutical overload.
