Perhaps Miles could pass out all of Abbott's copy-cat cholesterol pills and people could eat them as they choke down a high cholesterol large fry and a Big Mac.

Paid to do nothing????...hmmmm... Remember saying that the next time you need a drug to help you recover from a major health illness...and then give Abbott and Miles your middle finger cause you just don't need the "nothing" that you'll possibly need to survive..or maybe one of your children??..maybe they will need one of the stent devices that Abbott makes, or drugs that help premature babys stay alive....oh its all a bunch of nothing.

Similac made by abbott labs smells like Mcdonald's food- any flavor connections being made for future customers? Would be beyond reproach, right?... nothing shocking

I also smelled a connection between Similac formula and Mcdonald's food. Who knows the chemical combinations going on with these products.
