It shouldn't be a shock to any literate person, it's called "environmental racism". Corporate America and corporate India have long polluted poor communities, in fact, polluting poor countries and injuring the citizens of those poor countries for the benefit of the wealthier citizens and countries is just part and parcel of capitalism. There's nothing "new age" about it.

In turn, once the people become sick and diseased, health issues become big business for the corporations. I firmly believe that is one reason the U.S. in the past has not wanted to federally regulate a health care system. There is too much money to be made, when people are not well. It's big business for the institutions and the drug companies.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
