If you want to put a brake on the cost of pharmaceuticals: -
1. put up the cost of the lifestyle induced medications - why should someone who's fat and
lazy get cheap access to diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol medication?
2. Put out a tender for the three most effective and cheapest drugs the government will
subsidize for a particular dysfunction.
The pharmaceutical industry is absolutely rorting the Australian community, spending Government money to market drugs, not develop or produce them.
This is the industry that has perverted the course of medical research in this country.
It has also perverted the course of medicine, seducing doctors into the practice of junk medicine with free silver service dinners, Grange Hermitage and baubles.
On the track
Out for a walk/run with the boys. It's getting darker and darker. I just wish the Premiers would agree to end it at the end of February.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and get your tablets off the internet!
