This phrase is repeated so much in pharmaceutical circles that it has become accepted as a given. Very few people can unpack it though, beyond the rhetorical - "Medicines can kill" and/or "Medicines can heal". A few other substances can heal/kill. Food makes for a good example. The absence of food, as with the absence of medicines, can result in harm/death to many. Inadequate supplies of food, as with medicines, can also have the same detrimental effect. The same can be said for incorrect types and amounts of food, just as with medicines.
