I'm not a Doctor or a Scientist, nor a Hen Teaser for that matter. But I worked in a Nursing home for a year. What I do know is that every resident in there had a "disease".

Correct me if I'm wrong (i was once) but doesn't the Nursing Home need some sort of "diagnosis" in order to recieve money from Medicade or Medicare? I don't think you can lay this entirely on the drug companies. Besides it makes you sound like the Hillary Clinton.
