There is a lot of controversy about just how much power pharmaceutical companies have globally. .. And that they perpetuate the needs of the products they sell. They don't want us to get well ..

The is so much poverty in this world, where people endure unspeakable cruelties due to illness, injuries not to mention birth defects that can not afford even the most basic medications.
