Big Pharma - The Big Score

© Oktober 2009

If you want to know why the pharmaceutical industry calls the shots in America, and pulls the medical puppet strings, take a look at the profit margins on some of America’s favorite drugs. The price of the “Prosac Nation’s” favorite pill, for example, swells 225,000% in cost between factory and consumer, bilking the nation of billions of dollars every year, while doing nothing to relieve its depression. The profits that Big Pharma cartels reap peddling their toxic chemical drugs via the mainstream medical industry make the illegal drug trade, which deals mainly in natural plant substances that have real therapeutic properties, seem like petty cash. Small wonder so many people opt for the natural stuff…
