'Why Do Drugs Cost So Much? and why are we so darn sick?': New Book Reveals Inner Workings of Big Pharma, Asks Hard Questions About Our Health

HENNEPIN, Ill., July 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Caution! If read in its entirety, "Why Do Drugs Cost So Much? and why are we so darn sick?" (published by AuthorHouse -- may cause the following side effects: surprise, anger, disbelief and even amusement.

Written by the husband and wife team of Joe and Ruth, whose knowledge of this subject is based on first hand experience and years of research, "Why Do Drugs Cost So Much? and why are we so darn sick?" is not just another boring book full of charts and statistics. Revealing facts and personal experiences are presented in a sometimes humorous, sometimes sarcastic, always interesting manner that cuts through the propaganda. Have you ever asked:

-- Why are prescription drugs so outrageously expensive?

-- Why do generics cost so much less than the brand names?

-- What goes on at a major pharmaceutical company when no one is watching?

-- Why do people seem to need drugs more today than they did 50 years ago? -- What is causing so many of these new health problems and obscure diseases?

"Why Do Drugs Cost So Much? and why are we so darn sick?" begins by exposing the little-known inside workings of the pharmaceutical industry, based on the experiences of people who have worked there. Why do you think it is that your drugs cost so much? Is it because of all the high-tech "stuff" that goes into making it? Or is it something else that might shock or even anger you? What goes on behind the scenes often has nothing whatsoever to do with science.

This leads to a discussion of our collective health and the things you may not even realize are making us all sick, including things that have been proven harmful but have been covered up or ignored -- even encouraged -- as long as there is money to be made.

Do you like investigative reporting? Do you have a taste for the macabre? Are you concerned about declining health care, government cover-ups and the high cost of medicine? You may or may not agree with some of the things in this book, but once you start reading it, your curiosity won't let you put it down.

Joe and Ruth have been married for 34 years. Joe spent 30 years at a major pharmaceutical company, working in production and in research and development. "Why Do Drugs Cost So Much? and why are we so darn sick?" is Joe and Ruth's first book.
