Disease Mongering

The Onion does it again! This is a great parody of BigPharma's incessant disease mongering (the medicalization of everyday life and the selling of sickness: such as, erectile dysfunction, restless leg syndrome, etc.).

(Note: if you are sensitive to foul language or swearing, or if at work or with your children, you may want to skip this blog entry. Otherwise, get ready to laugh!)

Oh my gosh. TOO FUNNY!

But I can't say I would be surprised to see such a thing happen.

Actually, I think I might know a few people....

Represents the truly twisted view that people have on health. I believe happiness to be a major risk factor and side effect (to clone their terms) of a properly guided opinion of health and wellness.

Each individual should think and develope their own health goals and mind set and stay focused on total wellness. Many choose to allow the influences around them to guide their concept of health.

Absolutely f**** hysterical! I can't wait to share this with some of my friends! I know they are going to love it, and will laugh as hard as I am right now - oh wait, perhaps it's time for another 'pill'. ;-)
