Drug Manufacturers: Profits Over People
September 6th, 2016|
Medicine is far from an exact science. Even the most routine procedure can result in serious complications that no one expected or could have predicted. The same is true for pharmaceuticals. There are new breakthroughs in pharmaceutical science every month that carry with them promises of revolutionizing the way physicians treat certain conditions. However, these advancements are often overshadowed by the discovery of side effects that cause serious health complications to patients. Even more tragic is when pharmaceutical companies know of these side effects but put the medication out anyway.
In recent years, it has been revealed that a number of drug manufacturers knew their medications caused serious health risks to users, but instead of pulling the drugs from the market, they continued selling them, causing serious injury and even death. One can only assume they decided that the financial gain from selling the drug was more important than the lives their dangerous medications would impact. Why else would they put your life at risk?
