How am I talking out of my ass? What about what I said is untrue?
Pharmaceutical companies do not work on cures, they develop treatments.
They make on average $100,000,000,000+ in profit a year this way. Why would they want to make something that would lessen the amount of money they are making? It's a business first. They spend twice as much on advertising and marketing their drugs as they do on research and development. It's a matter of public record, and you don't have to remain ignorant of the facts. That is a choice. Just look at what happened in India. Research companies there were developing drugs known to fight kidney and liver cancer. American pharmaceutical companies swooped in and forced the price of those drugs through the roof, up to 30 times more expensive, making them unavailable to 99% of the patients that could have been treated with it.
You should do a little bit of research before you go spouting off at the mouth. It's painfully obvious you have no idea what you're talking about. There is no competition among major pharmaceutical companies, in fact the business is set up to ensure that a drug maker holds all rights to any drug they make for 20 full years. How is that helpful, or garnering competition? Yes all drugs were probably made in a lab controlled by a major pharmaceutical company, but again, that's usually a treatment, not a cure.

You're right, pharmaceuticals aren't big evil corporate douche nozzles. A family member works over in one of the big pharmaceutical companies and he's a great guy, and everyone I met that he works with are extremely nice, and usually are loving parents. The only thing is some of the drugs you take could actually just be stolen formulas, because apparently patent law is such that once a patent expires, anyone can take the patent. So he says how a lot of money is put in effort to actually stop people from stealing away drugs.

They're really just out to make money like every other corporation, the major difference being that they only make profits in the single digit percentages. I'd like to work for pharmaceuticals at some point if I can, because they are a humongous bastion of healthcare innovation, no matter what Mr. Conspiracy-Theorist up above just spouted.

You ever stop the think that people on other websites don't exist for your entertainment?
What they're doing is called socially interacting. You know, when someone presents something and you just give a fucking response.
