Big Pharma Wants You!

... to buy into its plan to soak you for every penny you've got, in the mistaken idea that THEY have the answer to your health.

Okay, dig this. Every drug nowadays has ~side effects.~ (For which Big Pharma, helpfully, has a remedy. At a cost.)

One of the side effects of a drug meant to reduce incontinence -- you know, accidentally peeing when you don't want to -- namely, Zosyn -- is --

Are you ready for this? Diarrhea or constipation.

That's right. EITHER you pee when you don't want to, OR you run to the bathroom.

No one remembers the day when you didn't need ~a drug~ to make you ~feel better~ for certain natural stuff. Once upon a time, you dealt with it. Most often, naturally, if the need was severe.

Not no mo'. Now we have The Magic Of Drugs. With the gratifying financial dividend of LOADZAMONEY for Big Pharma.

"One pill makes you larger,
And one pill makes you small;
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all;
Go ask Alice ...
When she’s ten feet tall."
(Jefferson Airplane)
