@KatherineEban “And that little girl was me.” Harris, on riding the bus.» P.14 A New York Times bestseller published in May, Katherine Eban’s expose shines new light on the mysterious generic drug manufacturing business. Almost 90 percent of America’s prescription drugs are generics, with the majority of them made overseas. Fraud is widespread, Eban writes, in order to circumvent inspections and maximize profits. FDA oversight has been, to be kind, uneven, she says. Over the past year alone, for example, there have been recalls of dozens of batches of blood pressure medication, including two last month. A number of problems—impure ingredients, infestations of birds and flies, faked sterility testing—can be traced to India, which manufactures 40 percent of generic drugs dispensed in the U.S. The following excerpt describes the successful FDA inspection…

q&a: katherine eban

How did you come up with the idea for your book? In 2008, Joe Graedon of the NPR program, The People’s Pharmacy, contacted me. Patients had been writing in with serious complaints about generic drugs that either didn’t work or caused devastating side effects. Top officials at the FDA had insisted to him that the patients’ reactions were psychosomatic. But Graedon felt something significant was wrong and urged me to look into the claims. My effort to answer a single question, what is wrong with the drugs, launched me into a decade-long reporting odyssey on four continents. Ultimately, I uncovered how generic-drug companies circumvented regulations and resorted to fraud. What obstacles did you face and how did you overcome them? As a journalist, exposing corruption in your own backyard is hard enough. But…

talking points

“The liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.”—RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN“IF A FEMALE DALAI LAMA COMES, SHE SHOULD BE MORE ATTRACTIVE.”—The Dalai Lama“We obviously forbid any discussion or topics that would run counter to the major decisions made by the leaders.”—Wang Gang, vice head of academic affairs of China’s Central Party School“I stand by the comments that I made about not wanting to go to the White House, with exception of the expletive.

the greatest adventure

CHARLIE DUKE Then → Charlie Duke served twice in Mission Control, as backup crew on Apollo 13 and Apollo 17, flew to the moon on Apollo 16, and was the 10th man to step foot onto the moon. Now → Duke is a committed born-again Christian, runs the Duke Ministry for Christ organization, and lives outside of San Antonio, Texas, with his wife Dottie. They traveled around 238,000 miles from home—the farthest human beings have ever traveled before or since. Their crafts contained less technology than schoolchildren today hold in their hands with their iPhone. The astronauts relied on a primitive computer that operated at 1.024 Megaherz and a control room in Houston filled with men (mostly) working mostly the old fashioned way—lots of human brains, pencil and paper. Today, orbital trajectories are…

permanent record

Fifty years ago Apollo 11 shot for the moon. To mark that anniversaryNewsweek is spotlighting current pioneers in science and technology pursuing goals almost as ambitious. Nova Spivack’s dreams are the stuff of science fiction but he’s serious about making them real. Spivack, a successful tech entrepreneur, is chairman of the Arch Mission Foundation—Arch pronounced as in “archive.” It is a nonprofit whose goal is to “back up” all of mankind’s knowledge in miniature form using techniques like etching data on durable substances like nickel and then storing those records in places where they will be safe for a long time. Like the bottom of the ocean. Or the Moon. Why do this? → All of the artistic and scientific achievements and history of the human race today exist either in plastic…
