  • Alan,

    Your cartoons are very funny!

    I agree, Pharma should be embarrassed. We, as a society, shouldn’t be allowing this to go on.

    I had to post this one on Facebook (crediting you and with a link to your website of course).

    Thanks for the smile!

  • I think I’ve seen this commercial! I watch all the drug commercials and a lot of them do say that death is one of the possible side effects (“fatal events”) along with cancer, tuberculosis, immune suppression and other things that ought to be embarrassing, but, apparently aren’t!

    • Hi Elaine,

      Pharma execs who produce drugs with lethal side effects (and often try to conceal that) and sleep well after killing thousands, are probably well beyond embarrassment. If they ever had a conscience, it’s long gone. They’ve lost all emotional connection with other human beings. A culture of greed helps create people like that.

  • Your cartoon is Divine! It is unfortunate that the rat died, the patient’s genitals turned black and dropped off and death were all realized as side effects. All because big Pharma paid their own scientists to do the testing in a fraudulent iatrogenic nightmare condoned by the FDA. In our practice, we often say that homeopathic medicine allows you to pay a little now, then play later, while allopathy’s tenet is to play now under the illusion of suppression, but pay later … big time.
