BMS and California

Corporations don't commit crimes, their people do.

Bristol Meyer Squibb is full of criminals. They paid $515 million in 2007 to settle allegations by the federal government and other states that it used a kickback scheme to defraud the Medicare and Medicaid insurance programs. Now the state of California is going after them. Apparently it is illegal to bribe doctors to get them to prescribe your pills. The article makes the claim that BMS had paid out of 15,000 bribes in a six year period.

Let us not leave out the blame to be placed directly on the medical profession. Doctors don't want to sit down with their patients and explain the relationship between diet and exercise. They deal with the relationship between sickness and pills.
