  • Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety - The Film Drug Companies Don't Want You to See


    Money Talks exposes the questionable tactics that big drug companies use to make record profits by playing with the safety of our family’s health care. Using misleading advertising, attractive drug reps who wine and dine doctors and other unethical practices, the drug industry makes billions of dollars every year selling us unsafe, unnecessary and overpriced drugs.

    There are over 80,000 pharmaceutical sales people employed in the pharmaceutical industry in the United States alone. My understanding is that that is about 1 for every 4 doctors. Their job is to sell drugs. Their job is not to educate doctors. Their job is not to provide medical information. They have one job and one job only: to push their product particularly against other competing products. Doctors should not trust them to give them unbiased and accurate information about their drugs, and frankly, doctors shouldn’t let them in their offices.

    If you want to protect the people you love from their dangerous practices that compromise the safety and quality of our health care, Money Talks is a must-see film. Moreat

    This might be a pretty good documentary for viewing and discussion.

    One of our members suggested this documentary long ago. I don't have this documentary. Has anyone this documentary and can arrange it to show?

    We can go to the Epiphany Library ... If we go on a Mon or Weds and can get there by 5 minutes to 6 we can watch it in time before the library closes ... or on a Sat morning after 10am

    Maybe we ought to invite the Prez to watch this with us! Since Obamacare my co-pays have gone up 50%!! When I called my Insurance provider they said it was because of Obamacare. Maybe we really need a single payer system and get rid of the insurance companies or they will continue to screw us!
