Bitter Medicine

  1. Anyone catch the ABC News Special last night...very well done.

    From New York Times, May 29, 2002
    Peter Jennings' agenda for his prime-time special, "Bitter Medicine: Pills, Profits and the Public Health," is ambitious for an hour-long show. Trouble is, tonight's show never gets around to answering the so-called tough questions nobody else is asking concerning high prescription drug prices.

    I disagree...thought it answered why cost's high and problems with FDA approval.

    More money is spent on prescription drugs in America than in any other country in the world-but what do consumers get for their money? ABCNEWS' Peter Jennings presents a prime-time special report on America's pharmaceutical industry.
