The difference between helping sick people and making a killing of sick people.


Dr, Jonas Salk spent seven years of his life researching and coming up with the cure for Polio, a disease which mainly affects kids causing them paralysis in their limbs and turns them to cripples. DR. Salk refused to patent his vaccine, a move that might have cost him an estimated $7 billion, and instead decided to give it away for free, so people around the world could buy it at an affordable cost. Dr. Salk example contrasts with today's big Pharmaceutical Research companies, who see sick people and kids today not as people who need help, but as a business opportunity that should be used to maximize their profits.
