Fake drugs that could kill are on the rise in Western countries – here’s why

Lundin, Susanne LU and Liu, Rui LU (2019) In The Conversation
Abstract
Fake medicines – illegal and substandard pharmaceuticals – have until now largely been a problem in low and middle-income countries. Ranging from lifestyle products to lifesaving medicines, such products are now also on the rise in the Western world. The spread is concerning, as fake medicines can be completely ineffective or extremely toxic.
