    Bani, Thank you for the link.

    • Can we really do something about the rise in the price of Insulin or for that matter, any other medicine? The constant increase in the cost of research and development and health authority review and approvals is a paralyzing factor to the industry. What is the outcome? patients lack of access to the medicine due to very high cost. When insulin was discovered in 1923, Frederick Banting found it inhumane to charge for insulin from patients. It was the companies who took over the patent that decided to start increasing the price. What is happening to our society? In criminal law we call this behavior, depraved heart,.. a heart with indifference to human life. Then why this increase in price of insulin is not considered a criminal act?
