Report: New drug-pricing data shows stunning hikes—one whopping 667% increase

According to ARS Technica, new drug-pricing data is showing massive and stunning hikes. One drug’s price has risen by a whopping 667%.

Dow (renamed DowDuPont after its 2017 merger with DuPont) likely knew for decades that its widely used chlorpyrifos insecticide is harmful to humans—especially children and developing fetuses. But the company hid that information from regulators, both in the U.S. and EU, according to a new study, published in the journal Environmental Health. The revelation comes as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is duking it out in the legal system over ...
