Drug Cartel or Just Another Consumer Rip-Off?

pills

This sheds new light on the old cliche’  “that’s a tough pill to swallow”. This “pill” should make you choke!

Did you ever wonder how much it costs a drug company for the active ingredient in your prescription medications? Some people think it must cost a lot  since many drugs sell for more than $5.00+ per tablet.  The actual price of active ingredients used in some of the most popular drugs sold in America is listed below.

As you ponder the pricing remember; THERE IS NO CURE FOR ANY DISEASE WHATSOEVER:

I wonder…if you didn’t have a prescription card in hand to bring the costs down to pennies on the dollar, would you be more inclined to look for wellness options or would you do whatever it takes to find the money to buy pills that don’t cure anything at all?

Join the wellness movement!    We’re doing just fine with a natural approach to health and wellness and it’s costing us a fraction of what you’re paying in dollars for your no cure approach.  After all, if  natural healing is all nonsense;  the entire human race would have died off long before prescription medicines were ever even imagined.  Hmm…
