$                           Pharmaceutical Prescription Drug Costs & Mark-Up   


circa 2007                          

 

I think all everyone would enjoy learning what the profit margins of the major drug companies are.

We are well aware that many of you

have been duped into the falsehood that the medicines you use are expensive to make.

You must realize that this industry has no interest

in producing any medicine that cannot be patented, after all if they cannot protect themselves from

duplication by third companies,

otherwise they will be forced to sell at a reasonable price.

 

 In U.S. dollars:

The fact is, most of these prescription drugs can be replaced by homeopathic natural medicines that cost a

small fraction of the ridiculous and greedy mark-up price.Now you know why the drug firms and FDA

want to destroy the vitamin industry !!

 

Doctors, who are often stockholders in drug producing firms and not schooled in homeopathic medicine,

always prescribe drug company produced artificial chemcial products.  A majority of doctors however do not use

them because of the often-undesirable side effects.

 

The FDA and the AMA work in conspiracy in support of the pharmaceutical industry, which is after trial lawyers the

second largest contributor to political campaigns.
