Dr. James Marcum, author of “Medicines That Kill: The Truth about the Hidden Epidemic” will sign copies of his book at Lifeway Christian Store in Chattanooga on March 16 at 6 p.m.

Medicines are a leading cause of death in North America, and prescriptions and over-the-counter medications are part of that problem. Marcum has seen the dangerous effects that medicines can have on patients, sometimes leading to even more problems-which causes a need for more medication.

Marcum argues that medicines don’t fix the problem but mask the symptoms.


In “Medicines That Kill,” Marcum tries to make people aware of the dangerous effects drugs can have on their bodies. He also provides advice to help patients understand how medicines affect body chemistry and suggests lifestyle changes to help eliminate the need for unnecessary medications.
