Fear :the Men Who Made Us Spend

Recommended Posts

On bbc2 now. A MUST watch.

All about how the marketing people use fear to make people buy.

Anyone here feeling scared about their precarious housing situation?

I think we all know it...they have used the fear card to keep their ponzi going.

BE AFRAID....OF THE PEOPLE TRYING TO SCARE YOU.

Interesting programme.

But struck a slight off key on the drug companies. Sure they were just trying to make money, but often eg with the statins example, this would save countless lives

statins is an excellent example of how the pharmaceutical industry keeps itself in the money

if people stopped eating shite (which is mass produced using pharmaceutical industry products) they wouldn't need statins

but if you dole out statins people can carry on eating the shite that makes them sick and the industry can carry on selling the nhs their wares

agreed, but some statins are out of patent such as simvastatin and cost pence.

Unfortunately for people like me I have FH (gene defect) that means cholesterol can't be disposed of very well. I think about 1 in 500 have it in the UK.

So even if I ate like a monk and exercised I still would probably have a heartattack/stroke by 50. I quit smokes and exercise a lot now, but diet could be better :)

My score was around 12! shoud be 4, but thanks to statins and another drug (stanol) I am around 5. If both parents are carriers it gets into a different league again.
