Product Overview

"If you have a headache, chances are you take an ibuprofen. It's a pharmaceutical, a medical drug to cure disease or alleviate its symptoms. Pharmaceuticals have been used since the beginning of recorded history. Early healers used herbs and oils to treat diseases. But as people learned more about the human body, the things they used to treat disease changed accordingly. Vaccines, antibiotics, and pain relievers are just a few of the discoveries that changed our world by helping us live longer, healthier lives. The story of pharmaceuticals continues unfold. Who knows what new drugs will transform our lives?"
