Generic vs. Brand Name Drugs – Does it Matter? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Blink Health created an infographic that describes the differences between generic and brand name drugs and we feel it is important we share this with you. This, given the number of people who are overpaying for prescription drugs. Here at The Zeit, we have talked about how the Fitness & Health industry is making millions by taking advantage of desperate people trying to lose weight or look a certain way. We have also featured blog posts about the likes of FDA possibly suppressing a possible AIDS cure and how most supplements are a waste of your hard-earned money. We hope our readers benefit from our latest look into the vague world of the health industry.

Who are Blink Health?

Blink Health‘s mission is to make prescription medications available at lower prices to millions of people across America. They are the first company to develop a proprietary technology to group millions of patients together, creating the strength to negotiate the lowest drug prices possible. They are also the first company to allow patients to purchase their medications online and pick them up at their local pharmacy.

Blink has been making a lot of noise recently and has been featured in many high-profile media outlets including:

The New York Times

    Unfortunately as I am sure you know, the secret trade deal, the TPP, written in total secrecy by the lobbyists and the pharmaceutical corporations along with government burocrats will be out to stop and destroy organizations such as this.
