I am going to support this campaign because I am one of those who refuse to depend on medication/drug usage to cure any kind of disease.
One of place I hate the most is Hospital because of the smell of medication and sick people. Seriously, I hate pills/medication!
Reading the article from WHO website and some other website about the fact of using medication/drugs instead of letting our own body immunization to fight disease like flu or fever really make me determine to stop pampering my kids with those pills / syrups because it only make our body more depending on those drug.

Maybe it's excusable for people with serious / critical illness such as cancers to frequently use drugs but for people in good condition I think they better reconsider to quit from too depending on drugs usage. If you have an headache, why not you take a rest rather than hurried up to find painkiller like Panadol or Ponstant.
I always scold my husband because whenever he have a headache or fever the 1st place he will go is the pharmacy to buy medication. Such a waste when the pain will go away if only he listen to me to rest well and have a enough sleep. Don't he realizes that those sickness will happened again although he keep consuming those medication.
I am talking from my own experiences. Well, I did take medication to control my blood pressure ( I am suffering with blood pressure ) and I even have to go to hospital to get supplies but I took it only when I have to as prescribe by my doctor.
