The cost of developing new drugs

To bring a single Big Pharma drug to market can cost a around $350 million. But, because 95% of drugs fail to produce positive effects, the overall cost is actually closer to $5 billion per new medicine. Of course, they take the failed drugs and market the side effects – like Viagra started out as a heart med but didn’t help the heart – but caused amazing erections (plus other knit-picky side effects, like death). Rogaine started out as a blood pressure med that didn’t lower blood pressure but caused you to become hairy – as one of its many side effects. You see, drugs cure nothing! They cause side effects because they are chemicals. Some of the side effects are desirable but most of them are not desirable. That is where business marketing, politics and shell games come into play.

There are no such things a "side effects" - they are all "effects".
