Boomer Series: Comfortably Numb

Despite popping far more pills than previous generations, Baby Boomers are less healthy and heavier than their parents were at the same age. As we continue our ongoing series on the Boomer Generation, we’ll talk about the increased reliance on pharmaceutical products – and the growing belief among Americans that medication can solve our emotional, as well as physical, conditions. This encore edition of HearSay with Cathy Lewis first aired in November of 2011.

Guests:

Charles Barber
- Author, “Comfortably Numb: How Psychiatry is Medicating a Nation”
