The early Rockefeller family got involved in pharmacurticals, along with oil, banking,food,automotive. They established them as one of the major industries as they seen how the people could afford it. They also discovered that in order to keep people working, you keep them medicated. It all comes down to the dollar bill. The USA is the pharm companies lab,and the citizens are the Guinea pigs.

It’s an interesting question, i myself live with chronic pain and in Ireland there is absolutely a traditional philosophy amongst even the medical practitioner community that “ suffering is good for the soul “

Hospitals and doctors here are the polar opposite of America, they prescribe pain medication which is hopelessly inadequate for combating severe pain and the discussion surrounding pain is always about more restrictions on pain killers

Being there is no national healthcare system in the USA, prescription drugs are a for profit business. So drug companies want to make as much as possible no matter what and hence prescription medication is advertised in every legal way possible in the USA.

Suffering is not good for the soul. Never has been, never will be.
