[In response to a story about pharacuticals being found in drinking water.]

Big Pharma's creating their own market by pumping our water full of drugs we later need an antidote for.

Just think! The power to create your own market is what every business entrepreneur gropes for. You can simply CREATE your own market for your drugs by CREATING people that need them. Just dump drugs into the water supply and "treat" patients as the conditions and symptoms arize.

And wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to develop ones for the EXISTING illnesses?. After all, you should count on the possible consequences, including, for example, that the outcome is the opposite they're looking for(drugs work different on each person depending in a number of factors)or that they purchase the products of another trade mark. And second, they would have to say, bribe a whole water company nationwide in order to succeed. With the money they need to take out their plan, they could do more research and earn millions with a new patent. The most logical explanation is that the filtering system is not as efficient as they wish it were.

I thought the just made people *think* they need things, like multivitimins. Much cheaper, you don't have to pay for the poisen to put in the water in the first place.

The reason there are drugs in the water system is because when you take drugs, not all of them absorb into your system. Some comes out in your wastes which are then processed at the treatment facility and pushed back into the water supply. That's why the concentrations only measure in parts per billion usually.
But honestly, we already drink plastic, mercury, and illegal drugs; would they really need to add something new to make us sick?

i hate how this is getting blown out of proportions, it would be the equivalent of dropping an asprin sized tablet made up of all the chemicals into 100 (if i remember correctly) Olympic sized swimming pools.

The black helicopters are circling too. Better look out and get your tin foil hat on quick! And remember, TWIST the top, don't fold. Folding still lets them in.

I, for one, am concerned. Look at what the damned things have done to your mind.

Yeah, there's chemicals in the water. All that dihydrogen monoxide, for a start. Dangerous stuff.

Okay...so how do you propose that "Big Pharma" manages to pollute water supplies like this, but get away completely unscathed? Do they just not drink water? And how is that not everyone in the same town is afflicted with the same illnesses? Feasibly, their would be correlations between occurrences of a certain medical problem and being in a specific location, and there is none.

That is a hell of a lot of effort to get more money, when all they need to do is rely on the illnesses that spread naturally, and upon increased commercial advocation for their medication results in quite enough revenue anyway.

ACtually the market they're creating is for water filters and bottled water and non-water-beverages.

It doesn't make any sense at all for a conspiracy to poison the air or the food or the water supplies. THEY have to drink and breathe too, you know.
