Truths about pharmaceuticals

An ex-pharmaceutical rep says what should be obvious:  pharmaceutical companies want people to stay on their drugs, not get better.  The very troubling thing for our society is all the money these companies spend on advertising, brainwashing people into thinking a pill will solve your problems and pills (plural) will make your life better.  People are bombarded with these messages, and then we expect children to just “say no” to drugs?  Ridiculous.  The U.S. should outlaw drug advertising on TV, but alas, this is unlikely to happen as so many congresspeople get campaign money from these same companies.
