The Business of Health

pills-1885550_1280You truly realize how much our society is built on capitalism when you see stories about medical cost going up exponentially making them only available to the wealthy.

Medication has been invented that completely cures certain illness, but you can’t get access to them because making these medications are business wise for pharmaceutical companies. Every person who gets cured is a customer lost.

Medication necessary for survival shouldn’t be a profitable business.

“Human progress isn’t measured by industry. It’s measured by the value you place on a life, an unimportant one, a life without privilege. […] That’s what defines a species.” – Doctor Who
