I don't think any profession is noble or anything. It's just a profession, a means to earn money and make a living, period. Now whether someone will use that profession to do something useful or be a menace is entirely upto different individuals.

And honestly, a sample size of 1 is too small a base to pass judgement on an entire profession.

@ OP, sorry about your friend. What happened to him was pretty dastardly, but the truth is that modern medicine is not bereft with corruption and gross misrepresentation of information and Hippocratic ideals.

Modern medicine is far from being noble. If I was an astrophysicist, I'd gladly measure the distance between ethics and Big Pharma/allopathy in terms of light years.

Big Pharma is a multi-billion (putting it lightly) dollar corporate subsidy funded by taxpayers. It's part of the nexus between drug companies, doctors, universities, Government, insurance firms, and what have you. Diseases are created on the fly, and 'cures' are thrust down the throats of the masses in the hopes of them shelling out their hard earned money on such drugs. It's all about making money on medication patents while they exist.

Watch Big Bucks, Big Pharma if you want to have a better understanding of how this nexus works.

As you can see, I'm pretty vitriolic when it comes to this subject LOL. However, that's not to say that there aren't a few good apples in the basket. I just have an issue with the industry as a whole.


edit: in grammar Nazi mode.

^^ where profiteering is concerned it can be applied to any industry. Pharma industry is profit oriented and not really service oriented.

It's more of a concern with the medical professions, because we're talking about toying with people's health here.

The private sector or the corporate sector would have bussiness concern. The government needs to concentrate on the public sector of healthcare. The cost of medical treatment is getting  out of reach for the common man. Insurance services are not that good.
