Bill Maher Hilarious Critique of Big Pharma
“If you believe you need to take all of the pills the pharmaceutical industry says you do, you are already on drugs.”
Bill Maher Rants against the Big Pharma. North America makes up 5% of the world’s population yet consumes 47% of the drugs and Canada & the US Health systems are ranked 30th & 37th. In the U.S. prescriptions have increased over the past decade to 3.4 billion annually, a 61 percent increase. Retail sales of prescription drugs jumped 250 percent from $72 billion to $250 billion, Maher is correct in that we have to focus on being healthier through, diet, exercise & taking care of ourselves preventatively. As it currently sits we are certainly making Pfizer, Glaxo Smith Kline, & Merck very wealthy but we certainly are not any healthier.
