I need that
@DwayneTheCockJohnson, you won't need a pill for that with me, papi 😘
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, so you don’t have a plague? Good to know
You can't sell the treatment for the symptoms if everyone is cured.
@RichardTheLionheart , this deserves all the upvotes. (I worked in biotech)
Bottom one is also the companies figuring out how they can overprice medicine
There are some drugs I have seen the stocks for and their dividends are so high its rediculous! The worst part is that they charge so much cause people with insurance only end up having to pay a small amount of the price and insurance covers the rest and lines the pockets of the greedy stock holders while the world faces financial difficulty because of junk like that.
I have stock in some companies but I refuse to invest in drug companies its not worth it to me.
At the risk of killing the joke from what I heard Viagra was originally intended to be a heart medicine but then during the trials men with E.D. started getting boners which gave the developers their "Eureka!" moment. Life gave them lemons so they made lemonade.
Pharmaceutical companies are only interested in financial gain and nothing more now days
@G1ngerB0y, agreed. Zero effort is being put into antibiotics or other antimicrobials. If it doesn’t have insanely high profit margins they won’t touch it.
Step 1: Invent Drug.
Step 2 : Market it as boner pills.
Step 3 : Profit.
It's what sells
