In this country, not only is there very little focus on prevention, but chronic illness is automatically considered incurable. We manage diseases instead of curing them. ... the pharmaceutical industry has the most effective marketers and salespeople in the world. This industry actually changes rules, definitions, and diagnosis criteria and creates diseases so that the public would “need” their products. They understand that big money comes from creating customers, not cures. And they aren't interested in just creating any type of customer. They want repeat customers, whose very survival depends on taking their products for the rest of their lives. ... In 2012, they spent $27 billion on these advertising and educating efforts alone, including: $15 billion on face-to-face sales by pharmaceutical reps to doctors ... 
Dr. David Williams, Alternatives, July, 2014.

If the claims above were true, what should we be doing?
