Love and other Drugs was kind of about this. no surprise.
Posted in: Each time new medicines are released, the companies spend a lot of money to hold study meetings for doctors, which are actually advertising bids. As a result, high-priced new medicines are prescribed more frequently, which pushes up medical costs for the public.

Yes, because it doesn't looik like it is ever going away. Haven't checked but pretty sure it will not have dropped recently despite the 30% fall in the price of oil.....

Ships captains are not what they once were. More like glorified bus drivers these days. Nice to see the SK justice system at its reasonable best.

bit of a tired idea but nevertheless he will be lauded for doing this for chariddy. i would rather see something original and not involving Saint Bob. no doubt Bono and Sting and the other Philanthropic stars will be along in short order.

Sounds like the whole APAC thing was a walk in the park for Abe. Plus he got to wear that odd outfit. Putin looked happy as Larry in the picture.

just because Japan has managed to maintain ridiculous levels of debt with interest rates at zero for a while doesn't mean those levels are sustainable. someday the debt will need to be repaid or defaulted on.....

Jaapn is more tolerant of smoking than many countries which to my mind is a good thing. The healthcare argument is spurious - if more Japanese smoke than elsewhere in the worl how come they tend to live longer. and yes, tobacco taxes more than cover the small incremental cost of looking after those who hacve suffered ill health from smoking.
As for saying it is most harmful to others, what about drunkenness and associated violence and social problems? Bad driving? Obesity?
Posted in: Japan is still way behind in terms of anti-smoking policies, especially measures against secondhand smoke. You can still smoke in a lot of public places in Japan such as office buildings, coffee shops, restaurants and bars.
