In brief: Take fewer drugs.

People take and doctors prescribe many medications that are not necessary.
Part of the issue is the attitude of the public expecting that if something is wrong there must be a pill to fix it. There is alot that one can do personally by making healthy lifestyle changes in diet, exercise, weight and bad habits that would significantly reduce drug use and prescriptions.
