Big Pharma is everywhere.
Ads for the latest and greatest “lifestyle” drugs clog our magazines and spill out of our TVs. Every ailment is now a disease with a name and a medication to match.
The truth is, we can’t avoid Big Pharma because it’s the only game in town. Thanks to government-authorized monopoly protections, we have no choice but to pay whatever price Big Pharma charges, no matter how high.
