that people can actually afford "medicine" for sickness.
t.v. shows are gross exaggerations which perpetuate a myth; for example, "dr. house", "csi"-las vegas.
when a person works to save others from suffering, and works in the lab for 20-years, finally discovers a cure, the companies financing the research want their money-back, so therefore, no one can afford the "miracle-cure", and people are left to suffer and die for "capitalism" and "monetary-profit". this is supported by our government, and is not "ethical-medicine".
