I think the keyword here is discount. Everyone that reads this should know that pharmaceuticals on the market and prescribed by doctors has nothing to do with its safety, when ingested by the consumer. This industry spends unprecedented amounts of money to lobby political entities. In addition, whether we're discussing animals or humans, doctors typically prescribe whatever pays them most. Every medical practice is serviced by pharmaceutical distributors. These distributors have a fleet of salespeople who also sell what earns them most. I've heard of doctors being incentivized by pharmaceutical distributor salespeople as much as $10 per every pill they prescribe of any given medication. Whether its new to market, earns more for the manufacturer, etc. personally, its gross how this nation works when it comes to this subject, especially relative to humans but pets alike as well. Want to test my theory that these pharmaceutical manufacturers control our government and not the other way around? I did extensive research of last events after watching hours of footage from the recent school shooting in Connecticut, where several children were murdered. Apparently, this guy was heavily medicated and had recently changed medications or began taking something new. Why don't we hear any mention of what he was on, or, any details concerning these specific pharmaceuticals whatsoever. This is one example of several. All the networks airing these programs sell a huge chunk of their commercial advertising to these pharmaceutical companies. Makes good sense from a business perspective but there's something wrong with the picture bc people are dying as a result of capitalism; not lack of research or isolated cases. All comes down to capitalism, politics and personal gain. Most of these doctors know about the dangerous risk and fatalities surrounding these drugs, but, still nothing is done...View Thread
