When we put this spending into perspective, it’s much easier to see how Big Pharma pushes drugs on the public that are absolutely riddled with side effects and still somehow manages to make a massive profit. Even standard pharmaceuticals come with a long list of over 70 side effects, with some clocking in at side effect counts that reach beyond 500.

So how do they do it? Quite simply, they spend billions marketing their pharmaceuticals with smiling models and nature-filled backdrops.
