The Medicines Myth   zWp8G8nGIO7QLN12gNbrqTl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

What are medicines for? What do medicines do? Your first instinct might be exactly wrong “Medicines cure disease”. Isn’t that what medicines do? No, it is not. It is more economically motivating for drug companies to produce drugs that you ‘keep taking’. Drugs that ‘cure disease’ don’t sell as much, because once the disease is gone – the need for the drug is gone. If drug companies only work to cure disease – they will be working to put themselves out of business. There are, after all, only so many diseases. Sometimes I wonder if we have more drug companies than we have diseases.
