The Next Life Saving Drug May Be Your Own

This ad is predictably warm and fuzzy, yet it speaks to a greater point. I often hear people talk about the incredible markup of the ingredients of a drug and rail against so called price gouging by the pharmaceutical industry, without ever considering the millions of dollars of costs and years of research and testing that go into bringing the simplest of drugs to market.

Full disclosure: I am not invested in this company, nor have I been compensated, other than the fact that I am grateful that some drug companies took a risk of time and money to produce drugs that improve my quality of life and very possibly keep me alive.
