PUSHERS

No, this is not about a baby’s pram-cart
nor a salesperson vying for big bucks
not even an illegal drug dealer trying his luck
it’s about billions of dollars of profits for a start,

About controlled business without any heart!
The worlds richest ‘pushers’ of legal drugs!
Through professionals who get paid in kind
Such as meals and perks that would really blow your mind!

They pretend to look after your health
Whilst stealing your wealth
Through hidden health costs and monopolies
and you also pay this drug dealer his fee!

We, the general public seem apathetic
to their blatant lack of ethics!
Victimize vitamins and alternative remedies
Why aren’t these on our health benefits?

Wont anyone look at the monopoly they have?
We blithely accept bad side-effects and prices
look about for alternatives to give them the slice
as they put our lives at risk, rolling the dice.

Please check brand names and contents
Make doctors, chemists declare all fringe benefits!
Many die from complications, consequences!
Make them responsible for what they do/don’t sell

Know that they control the research and prices
Should our government try to control it?
So next time you visit your surgery or chemist
Know that you will be prescribed drugs … wipe your eyes of the mist

  1. How true. You nailed it. One doctor, I don’t know, about a year or so back, recommended a drug for my aching legs. He gave me a free sample. “Here Paul, try one of these tonight. If it doesn’t work for you stop taking them.”
    “Uh, okay,” I said. I went home and immediately went online to look the pill up. One of the side-effects: it MAY cause depression that in some cases has led to suicide. I threw it in the trash. That particular doctor was a young fella who has since left the clinic. The one good thing about Dr. Reddy is that he doesn’t push the pills.

    • glad you have a good one, and that you’re smart enough to check online … so many don’t have the skills or confidence … I remain medication free, healthy and happy 🙂

    • exactly legal drugs are just drugs and often you have to take another drug to deal with the side effects and so it goes on until you rattle with all their poisonous little pills … 😦

  2. There was a big law suit awhile back about how some drugs were so expensive. And how great the mark up was. Children should not have to suffer when adults want more toys.

    Though on the other hand research does take funds. I just wish they would take all the drug commercials off the air. But would that increase the cost? Some drug companies do offer low or no co-pay. But not nearly enough.

    I also am not impressed with the robo cold calls that want me to get my insurance to pay for pain meds I don’t want or need. Or to get insurance from a company that won’t even put their name in the caller ID. Unfortunately desperate people fall for these traps.

  3. Wow so nice. This is soo different from all the other posts that I have come across today.😊

    No one cares about our health, but we are means for extracting money.

  4. I applaud your laudable effort to better inform the consumer about the reality of the pharmaceutical world and the pharmaceutical salesman. By repetitively expressing this message from different vantage points, society will begin understanding it’s validity.
