35. Refusal to accept that a product made by a big corporation can be good is part of it, IMO
Edited on Thu Feb-04-10 03:29 PM by Hippo_Tron
There was a great episode of House where a clinic patient comes in with her sick baby and mentions that she has not gotten him vaccinated because she thinks that vaccines don't really work and the big pharma corporations just want us to think they do. House tells her that the baby industry is certainly happy that she believes that.
