Big Pharma Trade Group Blasted as ‘Morally Bankrupt’ for Suing to Block Minnesota Insulin Affordability Law
A Big Pharma trade group is under fire for filing a federal lawsuit late Tuesday against Minnesota’s Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act mere hours before it took effect.
State Sen. Matt Little, a member of the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL), decried the move as “morally bankrupt” and “devoid of humanity.” In a Tuesday night tweet, Little also vowed: “I will spend my entire life fighting these soulless companies. No one should get sick or die from an inability to afford life-sustaining insulin.”
The law in question is named for an uninsured 26-year-old diabetic who died in 2017 of complications from rationing his insulin because he couldn’t afford the medicine and related supplies after aging off his mother’s health insurance… (Continue to full article)

When you drink scotch every day, this is what happens to your body
If you drink scotch every day, chances are you’re not doing it for the health benefits. More than likely you simply find indulging in a nightcap before bed to be an enjoyable experience. That’s not to say scotch is without healing properties, though. As the director general of the Scotch Whisky Association, Hugh Morison, pointed out to BBC News, the word “whisky” stems from the Gaelic term “uisge beatha,” meaning “water of life.” This is especially true of Scottish whisky… (Continue to full article)
Drug firm whistleblower wore wire to get evidence of cash bribes to doctors that led to $700m Novartis fine – and now stands to make $75m himself as reward
A whistleblower who wore a wire to record evidence of doctors taking cash bribes from a Swiss pharmaceutical giant to prescribe their drugs could now be rewarded with $75 million, following the conclusion of a $628 million settlement.
Oswald Bilotta told NBC News how he thought he’d landed his dream job when he was employed as a sales representative for Novatis Pharmaceuticals in 1999, but quickly the proverbial rose-tinted lenses lost their gleam.
Just over a decade later, Bilotta would play a central role in a huge federal investigation into kickbacks at Novatis, wearing a wire for prosecutors to prove doctors were accepting cash bribes from the firm… (Continue to full article)
