Funny but True Facts About Big Pharma, Bill Maher

"If you believe you need to take all the pills the pharmaceutical industry says you do, then you're already on drugs."

"We won't stop being sick if we don't stop making ourselves sick."

"The government isn't your nanny. They're your dealer and they subsidize illness in America. They have to. There's too much money in it. You see, there's no money in healthy people and there's no money in dead people. The money is in the middle, people who are alive (sort of) but with one or more chronic conditions that puts them in need of Celebrex, Nasalnex, Valtrex, or Lunesta."

"50 years ago children didn't even get Type 2 Diabetes. It's now an emerging epidemic as are a long list of ailments which used to be rare but have been 'mainstreamed.' Things like Asthma, autism, acid relfex, arthritis, allergies, adult acne, attention deficit disorder. And that's just the A's."

"In Hillary Clinton's health care plan, the words NUTRITION and EXERCISE appear just once. The word 'drugs' appear 14 times, just as the pharmaceutical companies wanted. You know, they're advertising weasels...

Love to say ' when diet and exercise fail'. Well, DIET and EXERCISE don't fail. A FACT brought home last week by a Duke University study that showed exercise, yes EXERCISE, is just as effective as a cure for depression as Paxil and Zoloft. So ASK YOUR DOCTOR if getting off your ass is right for you!"

"The answer just isn't another pill."
