Some public health advocates have become concerned that directly advertising prescription drugs to consumers is likely to cause some patients to pursue certain medications that may be inappropriate for their individual health situation. However, marketing to consumers should not be limited as long as physicians also continue to be educated about such medications, because a physician's prescription is still required in order for patients to obtain these drugs.

Which of the following facts would most directly address the concern articulated by the public health advocates?
After a certain number of years, prescription drugs lose patent protection and other companies can then manufacture and market generic forms of the drugs.
Consumers can now find technical drug information on the Internet, information that previously would have been available only to physicians.
Physicians are also exposed to prescription drug advertisements that are directed toward consumers.
Physicians are not susceptible to pressure from patients in determining appropriate courses of treatment.
Fewer than 15% of patients are likely to remember and ask by name for specific drugs that they see advertised in magazines or on television.

well at first idid not raly understand the question until i saw it's strengthen:
i thinh that:
Physicians are not susceptible to pressure from patients in determining appropriate courses of treatment.

concern=advertising affect consumers to take wrong medicine.
solution to the concern= physicians will judge giving medicine objectively.
the answer choice:
if the answer choice is true then consumers do not affect physicians regarding treatment (medicine) so physicians will judge giving medicine objectively. so it's the same as the solution.

so the answer is something like Public Health should not have any concern, since physicians act professionaly and it will deny/decrease the risk of misuse of medicnes. or shortly DO NOT BE CONCERNED TRUST THE PHYSICIAN.

Correct answer is D.
The public health advocates are concerned that patients are exposed to advertisements about prescription drugs, and may pursue these drugs even though the drugs may not be clinically appropriate. It is argued that, because physicians must prescribe the drugs in question, patient pursuit of these prescription drugs is irrelevant. However, patients who pursue and request particular prescription drugs may be able to encourage or induce a physician to prescribe drugs that he or she might not have prescribed otherwise.in the absence of such encouragement.
There maybe some confusion b/w C & D, but C can be rejected because it does not address the public health advocates' concerns.
