The Lifestyle Chronicles - Promoting Disease(s)

David Henry and Ray Moynihan at Newcastle University in Australia have issued a report stating that pharmaceutical companies are exaggerating and inventing diseases to sell more drugs. They present the term "disease-mongering", which is defined as selling of sickness to widen the boundaries of illness and grow the markets for those who sell and deliver treatments.

Can you imagine that? I'm shocked!

Surely, our government would stop this, what with health care costs being so high and all.
