Below is a good article from Natural News. I would have to add two more to this list: cholesterol-lowering drugs and acetaminophen.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs, or statins, block cholesterol. Cholesterol is essential for muscles and brain health. Recent studies have shown no significant connection between cholesterol and heart disease, yet millions of people still take statins. Statins can destroy your muscles and cause memory loss. Certainly not worth the risk for an unproven drug. Heart disease is caused by inflammation.
Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, can cause liver failure, especially if taken on a daily basis for pain. Turmeric, omega-3 essential fatty acids, and magnesium can help with chronic pain. For acute pain, ibuprofen and aspirin is safer than acetaminophen, unless you have a sensitive stomach. In that case, take them with food or go to an alternative healthcare practitioner for help with solving the pain issues without drugs.
The 8 Most Dangerous Medicines on Earth... are you taking any of these?

"It's time to take your medicine, honey." "But Mom, it's making me feel weird and horrible, and I'm not getting any better." "Well, it's what the doctor prescribed, so it's what we have to do." Have you ever been told to listen to your gut? There's a reason for that. Actually, several reasons.
Many "Western" medicines are made in laboratories using chemicals and are highly experimental, and worse yet, they're never tested on humans, except when they're actually prescribed, applied, or injected into them. Humans are the ultimate guinea pigs in America, while Big Pharma pockets trillions in profit. How did this all come to be? Simple answer: After WWII, Nazi scientists were hired fresh out of prison to work on pharmaceuticals, vaccines, chemotherapy, and chemical food additives, in order to fuel the most insidious business on earth–allopathic medicine. It's no conspiracy theory either. The horror that took place at the Holocaust in Germany was continued, on a lesser scale, in the United States, for money.
