So Lilly tested it on kids. The drugmaker believed the erectile dysfunction drug might help a rare and deadly muscle-wasting disease that afflicts boys. The drug didn’t work — but under a law that promotes pediatric research, Lilly was able to extend the Cialis patent anyway for six months — and that’s worth a lot when a medication brings in over $2 billion a year. Critics say the brand-name drugmakers are “gaming” the patent system, finding all sorts of ways to protect monopolies and delay competition from generics. And Alex Azar — the former president of Eli Lilly's U.S. operations, now poised to become the top U.S. health official — professes to oppose such tactics.---

Poppy harvests in afghanistan are growing and growing, we could do a better job stopping production by destroying the crops before harvest but we actually harvest them ourselves for the benefit of pharmaceutical industry. we cannot possible harvest it all so most of it gets into illicit markets, but honestly our war machine is feeding our opium machine at home. Don't worry, we all deserve it for being complicit fucking monsters.

We went in there claiming to clean up corruption, help the wimminfolk gain more political power, stop terrorism, get rid of drugs. We have actually made every one of those things worse and anyone with any sense knew that was going to be the outcome.

Sometimes this shit makes me think the ppl from unit 731 and operation paper clip were given jobs in the pharma industry. Surely not... 🤔

there is NO fiduciary responsibility for a corporation to maximize profits; that is a commonly believed legal myth. When corporations behave like this, it is directly the fault of their evil CEOs.

Don't know if you should get on the actual scientists' case. I believe they're being made more and more redundant as Big Pharma does less and less research. It's more likely the MBA's, lawyers, advertizers and of course top management, shareholders and their bankers faults. They're leaving the research and the risks to the start ups or smaller outfits, which can always be bought up if they if they make a jackpot drug but the Biggies will be safe if they go belly up.

I almost joined a research group until I got in an argument with the advisor, because he is a PHARMA shill. I am happy that I chose physical chemistry instead of organic anyways.

Although I totally agree with the central argument of this video it isn't totally crazy to trial Viagra (sildenafil) in children. The same class of drugs (phosphodiesterase inhibitor) are used extensively in kids. It isn't unreasonable to see if this one is also effective as it has some useful properties, like oral absorption.

its big pharma and doctors are millions of dollars in debt so a lot of them will just be drug dealers hence why we even have the HPV vaccine everybody who isnt a retard knows that only kills yet doctors still claim its safe to make money from it same with the oxycotton and oxycoddon just keep that in mind and its also why i would never let you get profiteered off of no matter how pissed off and no matter how much i hate you because its 100% wrong i tried to protect myla but that didnt work and i wasnt going to let you do something stupid to yourself because i hate the profiteering system and that is what marc miscalculated thx for this ha bisky vid i hope we can stop big pharma by making colleges free and with some world class action lawsuits first world class action lawsuit to see if it works will have to be the porn machines then from there the HPV vaccine and then from there other things to do with big pharma it will be fun

I love how it's not "moral" to study stem cells and many other things, but if there is a buck to be made then its "bring on the child guinea pigs!".
ihartevil (6 months ago)
that is like saying how is lead not safe they fucking put lead in the HPV vaccine so it works as a eugenics program and it is causing MS and death and a lot more aluminum in the HPV vaccine then what was claimed as well look at the lawsuits watch mike papantonio talk about the HPV vaccine *it is also illegal in pretty much every country that isnt america*

ihartevil How is the HPV vaccine not safe?
ihartevil (7 months ago)
in fact they knew it would do harm

+Christopher Kelly But what you aren't getting is that the trials were not carried out with the intent of possibly uncovering a new use for Viagra. They knew it was unlikely to find a new use, they were simply carrying out he trials to extend their license on the drug.

Years ago, out of concerns put forward by big Pharma, we enacted laws to have only American made Pharmaceuticals on our shelves. The rationale at that time was that we couldn't trust other countries production procedures and we wanted to avoid inferior drugs. The second part of this was to encourage America pharmacology to do more research. This justification has grown old. It's time for new laws to increase competition and protect us from the price gougers.

Recently, my GF's mother died. She had cancer. She died of an accidental overdose of a powerful opioid. She had all the best healthcare money could buy, but nothing can protect sick people from these powerful drugs.  It seems all too convenient also for the medical insurance industry to have these extremely lethal drugs being  self-administered for pain by sick people.

ya the story is up on his youtube channel youtube.com/prankvsprank after jess and jeanas break up they each took a channel but have remained friends

Kyora Xi (7 months ago)
And you use kratom to kick the opioid addiction that comes from the death pills.

Big Pharma is corrupt through and through EXCEPT somehow when it comes to vaccines ... line up and take your shots suckers!!
Dom Trussardi (7 months ago)
Nobody said "through and through". We're saying that they do more fucked up shit than other industries. However, I would guess that is just SEEMS they do more fucked up shit: they're chasing profit like any industry, just when they do it people can die. It's just capitalism, the monster, rearing it's head in a more harshly lighted room.

The Solo Activist fraud is making a false claim about a product ie trimming someone you are selling them a vaccine but you really just sold them saline. Curroption is selling us a vaccine we need for 200x the cost your allowed to in other countries simple because you know we need it day we will have to pay whatever exorbadent price you say we need to pay you
hjfj90 (7 months ago)
Hello ... we aren't going to agree!! Line up and take your shots sheep!

+hjfj90 Even back in your day they were already mass vaccinating kids and adults alike against Tuberculosis and Polio. Low and behold, Polio has been eradicated in most of the world and TB is extremely rare in the US.
samiamrg7 (7 months ago)
+hjfj90 They called it "you're kid is retarded/crazy" and either carted them off to an insane asylum or you hid them in the attic and didn't talk about them. Sure, measles and mumps can be not bad for a child or adult, but they can be lethal for an infant or someone with a compromised immune system. HIV/AIDS is a thing now that definitely didn't exist when you were a kid. Even today diseases like Whooping Cough can kill in infants and children.
