#BigPharma▶ #SocialCurrentSee®

The number of cancer survivors in the United States increased from 3 million in 1971 to 9.8 million in 2001 and 11.7 million in 2007—an increase from 1.5% to 4% of the U.S. population. Perhaps no group in the US population is more dependent upon Big Pharma and drug advances than the cancer survivor group and those who will soon be diagnosed with cancer. That reality brings us to the creation of the following archive.

WHO▶ is Big Pharma? The pharmaceutical lobby, also known as "Big Pharma" or the drug lobby, refers to the representatives of large pharmaceutical and biomedicine companies who seek to influence governments, the media and other institutions in favor of the pharmaceutical industry and its products.▶

WHAT▶ is the Big Pharma conspiracy theory?▶According to the Big Pharma conspiracy theory the medical establishment in general, and pharmaceutical companies in particular, operate for sinister purposes and against the public good.▶

WHEN▶ did Big Pharma become too big to prosecute?▶ No one knows for sure, but much of the problem with the excesses, abuses, and the general public awareness about the alleged conspiracy of Big Pharma is largely traced to Federal government actions that created the Medicare system (circa 1965).▶

WHERE▶ is Big Pharma entrenched today?▶ The answer is everywhere due to the pervasive nature of the health care system. At one time or another, every human being will be prescribed some type of drug and that means that everyone will come under the influence of Big Pharma. Even if you are free of taking prescriptions at this time, if you are a tax payer, you are responsible for a share of what the government expends to support Big Pharma.▶

WHY▶ is Big Pharma secretive about drug prices?▶According to this LATIMES source, even though the price tag for easy-to-use, lifesaving devices and drugs are ridiculous and indefensible, there’s no need to worry because backroom deals by assorted players in the healthcare food chain make that price tag meaningless.▶

HOW▶ does Big Pharma control the marketplace?▶“Our system of healthcare financing is the most cynical such system in the world,” said Uwe Reinhardt, a healthcare economist at Princeton University. “It starts with the opaque hospital bill and ends with the opaque system of product pricing and the disgrace of surprise medical bills. Americans can rightly be ashamed of these arrangements.”▶

Canswer♥Worth®▶ #SocialCurrentSee®

aka CANSWERIST ▶ Flip② ▶ –CANswerWorth ▶ MCL SURVIVAL : Clips and postings by a stem cell transplant survivor (2007) with mantle cell lymphoma since 2006 (still in remission as of 2016) ▶Today's tweets are tomorrow's posts ▶"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change" http://canswerist.com
(site best viewed on mobile phones and tablets)

WHO▶ Is the source for this archive and other ALTACITIES®? The microblogger @ altaloman creates and curates this domain and compiles content for the Flipboard site by the same name. This is a place where ALTACITIES links, amplifies, and archives selected web content dealing with #HOAs, #CIDs, #POAs, #homeowner, #associations and a variety of other hashtag (#) subjects related to the common interest developments... ~ post compiled and archived by CANSWERIST for SocialCurrentSee

 ALTACITIES ®, an acronym for "ALTERNATE CITIES", is the web moniker for the neighborhood of sites, blogs and locations created and managed by @ altaloman, in reference to our first web journals and blogging activity when residents of Alta Loma in Southern California. In 2011, we moved but these ALTACITIES ® remain in the form of common interest developments ▶

WHAT▶ Is aggregation? (1) The formation of a number of things into a cluster: a single dose of aspirin irreversibly inhibits the normal aggregation of platelets; (2) a cluster of things that have come or been brought together: "the pelican is the other bird likely to be found in large aggregations in East Africa's wetlands" (3) (on the Internet) the collection of related items of content so that they can be displayed or linked to:
"a desktop aggregation app that brings together social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, YouTube, and LinkedIn" (Bingo, bango, bongo or just BING)

WHEN▶ Is aggregation used best? Mostly, for this blogger anyway, when multiple web locations are employed to tell a story about common interest developments (more than HOAs, CIDs, and POAs), the subjects that launched ALTACITIES® a few years ago. ALTACITIES® is about the common interests of @ altaloman in the SocialCurrentSee of the housing arrangement that has become the fastest growing segment for real estate development in the USA.

WHERE▶ Is ALTACITIES® to be found? The answer to that question is wherever you find the web. Literally, the app is viewable and trackable on any computer device by typing the URL ALTACITIES.

WHY▶ Is ALTACITIES® on Flipboard? Because that aggregation site is the emerging leader in aggregation publishing, a platform that is proving most effective in bringing together the world of web content management and broadcasting.

HOW▶ Is ALTACITIES® a so-called common interest development? Typically, as we know, the CID initials stand for common interest developments, most commonly ascribed to homeowner associations, aka HOAs. But the "common interest" consideration means that many topics and issues are located within that domain.
