There's a helluva lot of commercials for medications...both prescribed and over the counter.
In fact? I counted no less than 4 commercials in during one break. 4! Now mind you not every break had that many but every commercial break had at least two and no less than one medication advertised. There was even one commercial break when a medication advertisement was repeated twice in the same break. Considering how many commercials there are during an hour of television...that's a lot of advertising dollars being spent by big pharma.
And I noticed too that the commercials during the wee hours of the morning are different than those during the daytime. Have you ever noticed that?
I also noticed that there was not one commercial break that did not contain a medication advertisment. Not one!
