Insulin was given to the University of Toronto by the inventors for 1 dollar... Eli Lily synthesized it and that costs 300 dollars per bottle in the US. It was about 25 dollars in 1989. Why so much? because they have a monopoly and charge whatever the market will bear. If you are dying of diabetes without it... How much is it worth? They keep "evergreening" the patent so they have another 37 years to go on the patent if the government does not intervene. As patents are created by the law, not nature, the law can and should be changed. That would help drive down prices if laws against other monopolistic actions are enforced. Given past governmental action, I would not expect much change until we have a new administration that works for the people instead of corporate monopolists and oligarchs.

I must be totally dense. I will never understand why a company will charge the highest price possible when the cost is comparably minimal. Oh, okay, I forgot ... GREED. Silly me ...

Being bitten by a Cobra seems a pretty extreme cure for depression! Maybe it's because you won't be depressed for much longer?

Although it's not every insulin there is a generic Novalin R is used in place of Humalog. Much less expensive and works much the same.

DIVER DEAN, scientists get the gull dose if cobra venom then its diluted so its not strong enough to kill. Most snake venom is done the same way and is used to counteract when a person is bitten by a venomous snake.

Jim Rivera, right at the beginning it says gallon. I assume that refers to US gallons. As far as I know the Imperial gallon is no longer used anywhere.
