Speaking of health care

Is this illegal? Drug firms 'hype up diseases' to boost sales.

I blame doctors/patients over drug firms. If you have restless leg syndrome only you can decide if it's bothersome enough to risk diarrhea, bloating, sexual side effects etc, etc.
Doctors are the ones pushing the cholesterol drugs. And frankly they will until someone can prove it doesn't help with heart disease. Drug firms have the money for the studies, but doctors are supposed to be educated enough to help patients make their own decisions.
