Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars marketing drugs to doctors.
We have a few issues with that.

    So I looked up my doctor and a few of the entries had N/A. I assume that means he did no research for a particular drug company or no drug reps came to see him?

    the for profit system is not a good incentive for medical research

    if pharmaseuticals can sell their old drugs they will not innovate and because marketing is way easyer they waste money on something pointless instead of doing their job in bettering the human condition

    this is just moore proof that pharmaseutical assets should be confiscated and put under an international comitee

    I just learned that ctrl+t opens up a new tab. I consider myself to be a PC enthusiast, got an overclocked, watercooled beast of a machine beside me and I did not know that. I'm kinda ashamed.

    ~6:00 (Poly-Sci majors) "was it weird to have to move back in with your parents after college?"

    or in my cousin's case; "was it weird to have to move in with your Gra'ma after college?", as she didn't get along with her step-mother…

    Disgusting sold out and big corporation shill. One day you and the others will certainly pay for that propaganda. Vaccines are ineffective and extremely harmful.

    Several doctors my dad (a urologist) knew were paid to prescribe certain drugs. He left that hospital

    I'm ashamed I didn't watch this video earlier in my life. I was diagnosed bipolar in 2013 but was swift to recover by 2015. However, my doctor hardly helped in the process. Whenever I asked him a question, he would just beat around the bush and tell me about a drug I could take or tell me about my drug's benefits. He also refused to cut down my meds despite noticeable progress. When I had chronic headaches, he recommended Depakote, an antipsychotic I once took for my bipolar disorder. There was always something up with him, and after searching his name up in openpaymentsdata.cms.gov, he was apparently paid over 26k in 2015 by pharmaceutical companies. Needless to say, I stopped seeing him a while ago, but I wish I stopped seeing him sooner. My wallet would've thanked me too.
