Martha Rosenberg, Health Reporter & Commentator joins Thom Hartmann. If you think that modern medicines are developed and marketed when the medical industry sees a need for comprehensive treatments for diseases that are becoming more common in a population - then everything you know about the pharmaceutical industry and it's influence in the marketplace is wrong. Analysts say that Big Pharma is often driven by supply-side marketing that makes them billions each year by putting the proverbial cart before the horse -- meaning once they have the drugs in hand, they create enough buzz around the diseases the drugs can supposedly cure to rake in the profits as we turn into a nation of pill-popping hypochondriacs. And all of this is happening while there is a shortage of viable drugs to treat real medical problems. So what are some of the most profitable diseases that Big Pharma hopes we'll all think we have in 2012?
Most of the drugs big pharma makes are not designed to cure the desease anyway but control the symptoms if they cure the desease then they lose you as a customer. Think about it ! Look for natural alternatives .
@awakenu1 Not exactly the point.... Are you choosing to ignore this video and others similar just because there is not a step by step video. It's educational..
Can I ask are you one of those sheep that walk around with your eyes closed? Or, are you willing to learn what you are not purposely being taught for a healthier future??? Either way, if your comment is not helpful and immature, why the fuck comment?? Go read a book or something, or watch family guy.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
