It seems the company gave or emphasized their opinion in brochures rather than fact or general information. They said menthal cigarettes were better for you at one time as well.

For some the company brochure is the only reading they'll do on a lot of things wether it's a car, appliance etc. I think many of these drug companies exploit that fact because much of the public likes one stop shopping in this case called the doctors office.

That being said one must be a vigilant consumer at all times. Big Pharma needs to reigned in but everyone must be in consumer mode at all times when making choices and given options. This doesn't excuse Big Pharma's sleezy behavior.

Big pharma companies are awful and have been one of the main contributing factors of the opiate crisis many countries are facing. The problem is that a lot of them have some kind of link to government or people within it and I'm sure this is exploited in some way. Money is power, even if people die.
