Kia Ora, In Stick News today, it’s official: Drug companies are inventing diseases.
The idea that pharmaceutical companies promote sickness to make money, is sometimes dismissed as a wacky conspiracy theory. But it’s just been given a stamp of approval by researchers in Australia who have released a report criticizing the industry.
Disease-mongering works like this. Drug companies such as this “Drugs are us” want to make money. So they run campaigns to sell drugs. Scared customers hand over the money and the companies are laughing all the way to the bank.
The only one with sad face, is the consumer. They’re left with no money and a stomach full of useless drugs.
The legal drug industry has denied it invents diseases to make money. And Drugs are Us have released a statement warning consumers to take immediate action against the latest disease – virus B. They say the only way to protect against the disease is to buy this drug, manufactured by Drugs are Us, called anti-B.
And that was Stick News for Wednesday 12th April.
