We've all seen the commercials on TV. As soon as they start you can almost instantly recognize them as a drug ad. They just seem to give off a certain vibe. Then at the end we get the almost comical (albeit frightening) list of side affects. The drug may fix your restless leg but it just might kill you doing it.

I've been telling friends and family members for years that drug companies simply don't have their best interest at heart. Some listen and others look at me like I'm crazy. Regardless of where you stand the following story is absolutely outrageous. 

I don't need to bore you with all the details, so here's the bottom line. Bayer was responsible for killing thousands of people in the United States and other countries. Here's the kicker...they knowingly did it. They manufactured a hemophilia drug created from blood plasma obtained from high risk individuals. This lead to contamination of the samples with HIV and hepatitis C. As this became public and people started to become infected it was pulled from the U.S. market. However rather than destroying the rest it was sold overseas.

As if this isn't bad enough think about when hemophilia is usually diagnosed. It's when we're kids. That means that many of those infected were children. Sure, Bayer paid settlements to the families of those that were infected and lost their lives. Regretfully though no amount of money can bring someone back.

Information is a powerful thing. Now that you have this information what will you do with it?

You're absolutely correct. People forget that they're FOR PROFIT organizations. Insurance companies are similar. When money is in the equation companies almost always choose money. We can fight back by taking care of ourselves and staying out of the "sick care" system!
