This man and thousands like him are getting fat wallets, pious attitudes, and making zombies, drug addict out of millions. When will they sit with a patient and look them in the eye, tell them they must change life styles, diets, stop smoking, drinking, get out and away from t..v. They won't because they're making too much money off damaging people w/drugs.
