Minimal Risk: Documentary
This year Canadians will spend over 25 billion dollars on prescription drugs.
We take these drugs on the advice of our doctors. All of these pharmaceuticals come with varying degrees of risk... risks often considered minimal.
Today we bring you the story of a young woman who believes she became part of an unenviable group... those who become part of a statistical minority.
Toronto freelancer Alison Armstrong's documentary is called Minimal Risk.
