Ben Goldacre wrote 2 books about the drug companies and their corrupt practices.The second one was "Bad Pharma".
They are horrific in the scale of the drug companies' behaviour and the lack of action taken against them.
As they provide huge funds to the Tory party, the government protect their interests....just look at TTIP!
GlaxoSmithKline, for example, has been fined billions of dollars , but nothing in the UK, yet it is only a tiny fraction of their profits.
I think our best chance is The Michael J Fox organisation who cannot be bribed by these companies.
They put millions of dollars into research that the drug companies won't touch....
We live in a world where everything is run for the benefit of the top 1% to whom profit and greed is all that matters.
Thank goodness for loving family and friends and the majority of the non-1% who care for each other and try to mitigate the damage done by those who care nothing for the poor and sick....unless they become poor or sick themselves ....
