No. 512 QUESTION: Why do drugs cost so much? ANSWER: Contrary tothe trend we have learned toac- cept in other areas, the pri- ces of drugs have not risen nearly as fast as most other commodities and services. For instance: Hospital costs, food costs, automobile and petroleum products all have risen in price - much more than drugs. It is expensive, however, to deliver on prescription, a drug that meets the very exacting specifications for research, development, testing, manufacturing and clinical testing that our gov- ernment requires. Many drugs have come down in price, while a very few account for much of the increase. Considering the lengthy GLASS TUMBLERS * 14 OZ. CRYSTAL COOLER OUR REG.
