Do you really think “Big Pharma” is out to get you?
Meggy Doodle is a nurse who posted a Facebook rant combating the idea that “Big Pharma” is just out to get you. The “Big Pharma” myth helps fuel the dangerous anti-vaxxer movement which has casued America’s recent measles outbreak.
Here’s how it starts:
Don’t want to vaccinate, don’t do it. Fair enough. She continues:
Well, that seems harsh. I suspect there’s a reason for this, though.
Ah, things are coming together. I wonder what else “Big Pharma” is behind?
No getting away from “Big Pharma,” then. Fair enough. This isn’t all she has to say to anti-vaxxers, though.
I think they have a different definition of “research.”
Of course, anti-vaxxers may think that since everyone else is vaccinated, they’re okay. Doodle points out that that’s not actually the case.
