#TOTW (from 24-06-14): “The Pain Detective”

It’s been a very varied week of tweeting this week, encompassing most of the “usual” topics. The one that sticks out for me, and this week’s #TOTW was a retweet that I took from @mosaicscience:

RT Brilliant film about and the management of chronic pain

Here they followed a guy called Colin Froy as he visited one of the major drugs companies to find out how they produce their drugs. The link to the film can be found below. It lasts about 30 minutes, but it is well worth the time, as what he discovered, I think should be of interest to all of us that use drugs in some way on a regular basis:

I was sad to learn at the end of the video/documentary that Colin has since passed away. I think it’s great that his family are allowing this video to be shown. It’s a really educational video.

Please take the time to watch it and learn something about how drugs are developed, some of the science behind it, and how dugs get to market.

Until next week…
