We overpay the big pharmaceutical corporations for their drugs with tax and insurance funds, and then they use the money to carpet-bomb the Internet and media with marketing. They hijack legitimate advocacy groups and charities into this process with massive donations. They create some of these organizations out of whole cloth to promote sales.

Direct-to-consumer ads blanket the media. These are illegal almost everywhere else in the world. The corporations promote virtually any drug that sells. There is little regard for the side effects of medications or the patient anxiety when they are labeled with a diagnosis. We now use medications without legitimate medical use for a vast swath of the population. I believe we should use drugs solely for sick people, where they have some chance of having more utility than toxicity. Even for these patients, we must do our best to not let our attempts to help cause harm.
