I’m Sure Tired of Them

What You’re Missing On Your Prescription! | Medical News and Health Information

In fact, there are about one and a half million every year in the U.S. Some believe a big part of the problem is that people don’t read prescription warning labels.

“It’s derailing the whole process early on,” Dr. Becker said.

Dr. Becker and packaging experts conducted a study to test that theory. Using eye-tracking technology, they gave people five prescription bottles and asked them to study the bottles like they would at home. Then asked what they remembered.

“People spend a lot of time on that white label,” Raghav Sundar, a MSU grad student told Ivanhoe.

“Often times, people never even looked at the warning label,” Dr. Becker added.

Seventy-one percent of the participants older than 50 failed to see all the brightly colored labels – 73 percent of young adults did read all the warnings.

My guess is that the old farts are tired of reading stupid warnings on everything: CAUTION: DON’T PLACE FACE IN FRENCH FRYER. BOILING OIL MAY CAUSE BURNS!
