an excellent documentary from al jazeera....

The US healthcare industry is the world's biggest, with $300bn per year spent on prescription drugs.

For many these drugs have brought undeniable benefits.

But recent months have seen health scandal after health scandal making headlines in the US.

Two of the world's biggest pharmaceutical companies have been fined billions of dollars after investigations into their secret working practices.

What these cases have revealed will change the way the drug industry is perceived forever.

Revelations have emerged of pervasive fraud, fatal side effects, and huge kick-backs paid to doctors.

This investigation by Melanie Newman and Chris Woods reveals how healthcare became unhealthy profit.

Risperdal is a bad drug, and halperidol too. im on halp. currently, 5mg/day. I was on more which made me shake and have dillusional thoughts. Risperidal got me out of the hospital because I told my lawyer it made me dizzy and feel sick sometimes. Shame on drug companies, maybe they should be made to pay into social security funds for all the cash theyre scamming from the state, my bill was total around 40,000, all covered by the state. Oh and read my post on thought reading and voice to skull mental torture, it may add some light to my whole story of why i went to the hospital.
