Depressing, isn't it?

The more one knows about how the health system works, the more depressing it is.

A recent expose showed that a device that is progressing in its quest for American Government approval to relieve depression hasn't shown that it can do the job. Then why is it being approved?

And the good news/bad news in cancer treatment concerns the price of one of the "better medications." Investigations show that the price is being determined by "demand" rather than actual production costs. But the experts say that it probably isn't even as effective as the manufacturer wants people to believe.

Some people are getting very rich from the pain and illness of others.
