NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. Your financial support is appreciated. Click here to give now.

The next time someone tells you to “follow the science,” listen, then ask them how well they have followed the money. Because…

Big Pharma pays doctors.

Big Pharma pays researchers.

Big Pharma pays politicians.

Big Pharma pays the FDA.

Big Pharma pays lawyers.

Big Pharma pays accountants – big time.

Big Pharma pays lobbyists. (#1)

Big Pharma owns the media.

Big Pharma pays celebrities.

Big Pharma is becoming Big Tech.

Big Pharma benefited from the pandemic. Bigly!

Big Pharma forecasts bigger profits ahead.

Could it be that Big Pharma is motivated by profit and not the well-being of its customers? Could said motivation be the reason behind certain mandates? “Following the science” is good but, don’t overlook the money. The money matters too. And should you get push back for simply questioning the incentives driving the pharmaceutical industry, consider this quote from C.S. Lewis.
