pharmaceutical industry

Fundamentally this is a stupid presentation, and it's fundamentally wrong. When Big Pharma advertises a prescription drug, they do list side effects. On TV, it's a voiceover as you see people laughing and having a ball, but it's there. Ditto for print ads. Maybe not in Canada, but in the U.S.

This isn't to say Big Pharma is perfect, or hasn't done some bad things, but I would have hoped you would have found a video that isn't designed to appeal to idiots to get the point across.

My late brother, Wally, by the way, was a part of Big Pharma.

Then again, he died in his sleep three years later.
