It is interesting, I think all drugs have side-effects and are dangerous when misused, antibiotics most certainty have saved alot of lives, but ofc we aren't always prepared for the long term effects, there just needs to be tighter controls on them honestly.
I look forward to the day when all mental & physical disease has been eliminated, and I think it will be mostly accomplished within my generations lifetime which is kind of cool. Nanotechnology, and stem cell research will prob. be the future of modern medicine, I think we will eventually move away from broad acting drugs like we use today, and more toward very precise targeting of disease.. eg: a nanobot that delivers precise and specific chemicals directly to cells.
