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.

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.

Mercury isn't used much in medical. That's bullshit! The shots they give to children/babies, has so much mercury in the shots, that a baby would need to weigh 200 pounds to safely remove it from their bodies. Don't allow them to give your babies vaccination shots unless you know exactly what's in the shot and why they're giving it to your child.

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

Jerry Myers, you are right the system does need to change. I’m assuming you’re speaking of the US. My husband is an insulin dependent diabetic. As a pensioner he buys 5 packets of five vials with each vial containing 100ml for a total of $6.60 per prescription. When we’ve reached our prescription limit our medications are free. Got to love our system in Australia.

Well stated, Mr.Meyers. Like Insulin ,other medications are handled in the same manner. Nothing seems relative anymore. Profit margins are more important than people.

Jerry Myers, But then all Democrats are deeply funded by big pharma and big banks, and even the communist Bernie is a millionaire.
