Boston Legal Gets it Right!

The Sept 29 episode of TV show Boston Legal really showed the truth about big pharma and their money making activities at the expense of true help. This article on the blog called "Side Effects of Antidepressants, Antipsychotics, Psychostimulants, Hypnotics and More", tells you even more about it: Big Pharma (PhRMA) Hammered on Boston Legal.

Here is one of the best quotes from the show:
Alan, “The fact is the U.S. pharmaceutical industry spends almost twice as much on promotion as it does on research and development. That’s obscene! American television viewers see as much as 16 hours of prescription advertising each year. 16 hours! That’s more time than most people spend at the movies. The fact is that they invent diseases like Social Phobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, to sell mind altering drugs.”
Wow! Hollywood gets it right.
