Is treating disease more important than profits for drug companies?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Companies work for a profit

    No, profits are more important We live in a capitalistic world. Profits will always be more important. Technically a company which does not make a profit can be ordered to close as it would not be performing its most important function. The mere fact that we are dealing with treating diseases is besides the point. How do you expect a company to fund its research and provide efficient drugs to heal people if it is not receiving enough money to do so

  • Drug companies work for profit.

    Drug companies are much more interested in making money than treating disease. I do believe that they want to cure disease (as that would lead to maximum profit) however, their top interest is making money. There are numerous examples of drug companies launching drugs that had questionable claims and weren't fully tested, in order to generate revenue.
