The retail mark-up for otc and prescription drugs could explain the need for “prescriptions only” insurance programs that appear to offer great savings to consumers; with low monthly payments, patients receive substantial monetary saving when purchasing medicines that “treat” disease.
Akin to treating the symptoms, is the illusion of health created when our ability to think naturally is numbed; re-programmed to feel better about buying overpriced drugs that keep us dependant while treating a disease until we die … probably from side-effects.
However, numbing the symptoms of a disease that requires decades of “treatment” generates a price none can afford. The side-effects of treating symptoms instead of focusing on the cause and cure of disease are financially and physically killing us! During my research, NOT one otc or prescription drug has less than 3 side effects.
