Funny but True Facts About Big Pharma, Bill Maher

And finally, new rule if you believe you need to take all the pills, the pharmaceutical industry says you do, ...then you're already on drugs. Yes it's that time in the campaign where all candidates are presenting their health care proposals Hillary's covers childrens teeth Edward's has one that includes maintaining gorgeous shiny hair And Barack Obama involves going on an operation ...and everyone gets a gastric by-pass But none of the plans address the real problem We will not stop being sick, untill we stop making ourselves sick Because Because there was a point, where even the most universal government health program can not help you They can't outlaw unhealthy food or alcohol or cigarettes... Just part sadly Because you see the government is not you nanny. They are your dealer And they subsidize illness in America They have to, there is too much money in it You see there is no money in healthy people ...and there is no money in dead people. The money is in the middle People who are alive - sort of - but with one or more chronic conditions, that puts them in need of medication.... Fifty years ago children didn't even get type two diabetes Now it is an emerging epidemic As are a long list of ailments which used to be rare and have now been mainstreamed Things like asthma and autism and acid reflux and arthiritis, alergies, adult acne, attention deficit disorder ...and that's just the A's. Doesn't anybody anybody wonder why we live with all this illness? I will tell you why At the LA county fair last week they were serving something called fried coke Now, my first thought was gosh, what a waste of a perfectly good 8-ball. But no. They actually poured a coca-cola sirrup into a deep frier Then put it into a cup and topped it with sugar and whip-cream and cherry. Because, you know, cherry is "good" for you. Would it be really that much more unhealthy to get mollested by one of the carnies? In Hillary Clinton's health plan the words "exercise" and "nutrition" appear once. The word "drugs" fourteen times. Just as the pharmaceutical companies wanted. You know, their ad-weasels love to say: When diet and exercise fail.. But diet and exercise don't fail. A new study shows, that exercise is just as good cure for depression as the pills. So ask your doctor if getting off your ass is good for you. If Republicans can sell the idea of preventive war, Democrats can get us interested in the idea of preventive medicine Someone should stand up and say, that the answer is not another pill. The answer is spinach. Ok. Not spinach. Turns out that crap will kill you. But you know what I mean. All right, that's our show, thank you very much!

You see, there's no money in healthy people and there's no money in dead people. The money is in the middle, people who are alive (sort of) but with one or more chronic conditions that puts them in need of Celebrex, Nasalnex, Valtrex, or Lunesta."
