Ridiculous cost of cancer drugs


Many cancer patients don’t even feel sick until they start treatment!

Being diagnosed with cancer is not only bad, it’s an extremely scary and unpredictable time in your life.
But there’s something even worse…

The treatments.

Invasive surgery, destructive radiation and toxic chemotherapy… all of which can be much WORSE than the actual cancer itself.

The truth is, many cancer patients don’t even feel sick until they start treatment!

Well… It’s time to discover a different approach.

You remember my dear friend Chris Wark who was in our docu-series, The Truth About Cancer, and also speaks at our events…

Well, he’s a 13-year stage III colon cancer survivor who decided to take matters into his own hands when he was diagnosed.

His results (and exactly HOW he did it) are nothing short of amazing.

Go here to see how he did it.

Most people blindsided by a cancer diagnosis, won’t have or get this vital information and will have to rely solely on the limited options their doctor gives them.

Please don’t let that happen to you or someone you love.

Go here to see how Chris beat cancer.

Explore your options and alternatives to conventional treatments.

It could make all the difference in the world.

Pharma companies are ‘getting away with murder’

Try to google this: Trump says drug company get away with murder and you get to this link:


  • S. President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday said pharmaceutical companies are “getting away with murder” in what they charge the government for medicines, and promised that would change, sending drugs stocks sharply lower.
  • Trump on drug prices: Pharma companies are ‘getting away with murder’

SAN FRANCISCO — At his first news conference as president-elect on Wednesday, Donald Trump accused the pharmaceutical industry of “getting away with murder” and said that he would change the way the country bids on drugs to bring prices and spending down.

“Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power. And there’s very little bidding on drugs,” Trump said during the event at Trump Tower in New York. “We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly.”

Federal law forbids the government from negotiating with drug companies to bring down the price of drugs for seniors using Medicare. While Trump did not announce a specific plan to address the issue, he has in the past called for ending the policy — a proposal that Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly put forward.

  • Drug stocks tanked after President-elect Donald Trump, in his first press conference since the election, complained about big price increases and put the industry on notice. Trump said that many companies were “getting away with murder” and that there would be more competitive bidding practices for federal contracts in his administration.
  • NEW YORKS. President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday said pharmaceutical companies are “getting away with murder” in what they charge the government for medicines, and promised that would change, sending drugs stocks sharply lower.
  • President-elect Donald Trump went after drug makers in the opening remarks of his press conference Wednesday, calling the industry’s practices “disastrous” and suggested the government should negotiate drug prices. Trump had endorsed having Medicare negotiate drug prices — a long-time Democratic position which Republicans have opposed. “The other thing we have to do is create new bidding procedures for the drug industry, because they’re getting away with murder, pharma. Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists, a lot of power. And there’s very little bidding on drugs,” he said.




Drug Goes From $13.50 a Tablet to $750, Overnight

Big Pharma greed on parade and out of control

The total greed of Big Pharma is on parade this week as a company called Turing Pharmaceuticals took ownership of a lifesaving medication that treats parasitic infections like malaria. The pill — mostly purchased by AIDS and cancer patients — used to cost $1 each. But now, thanks to Turing Pharmaceuticals and its profiteering CEO Martin Shkreli, each pill will cost you $750.

Why is Turing Pharmaceuticals charging $750 a pill? Because they CAN. Like every other drug company in the world, they’re going to gouge the consumer and extract the maximum dollars possible. Big Pharma is really about the profits, you see, and not at all interested in “helping humanity” as their ridiculous TV ads claim.

This Daraprim pill, by the way, probably costs about 20 cents to manufacture, and it’s probably manufactured in India or Puerto Rico, where most drugs are made and then exported to the USA. How does Turing Pharmaceuticals justify $750 a pill? According to the pharma douchebag Martin Shkreli, it’s “a bargain for health insurers” at $750.

A bargain compared to what? A bargain compared to all the other monopoly-priced drugs, he says. And that’s how insane the monopoly has become, by the way: When a pill that sells for $750 is called “a bargain,” you know you’re living under a monopolistic profiteering medical cartel. And it is, truly, a protected cartel. Who’s protecting it? The corrupt government, of course… starting with the FDA.

The Global Problem With Overdiagnosis and Overtreatment

Now, two new studies published Monday in the medical journal TheBMJ highlight the global problem with overtreatment in both breast cancer and heart disease.

A team of researchers conclude that hypertension is being overtreated in people with mild cases of the disease. The researchers write that about 40% of adults worldwide have hypertension, and more than half of those people have mild cases of the disease (meaning they’re low risk and don’t have existing cardiovascular disease). But more than half of people with mild hypertension are being treated with blood pressure-lowering drugs–even though the research on whether this reduces cardiovascular-related disease and death is not established. The researchers argue that the practice is unnecessary and costs $32 billion each year in the U.S. alone.

Instead of recommending lifestyle modifications proven to work, like cutting back on alcohol and exercising more, many doctors opt for drugs because they want to do something right away …..

The sickness of our private healthcare services

“If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practise my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.”
– The Hippocratic Oath

It would have cost the local patients an arm and a leg to receive treatment in these hospitals but Mary said, “If the service is compatible with the amount I pay for, why not? The problem with the private hospitals here is that I’m not even getting the value for my money.”
