Abstract:  This kit attempts to answer questions such as the following: How do pharmaceutical companies affect our lives? How does advertising influence our consumption of drugs? Do women have control over their bodies and health? How does the dumping of banned pharmaceutical products affect the health of the Third World? What is the orientation of Canada's health care system? For Health or Profit? is an introductory kit on these issues; it provides information on alternatives, possible solutions, and ideas for action.
