Marty Cooper paired his computer and medical skills developing new algorithms to market new drugs, and entered the rarefied executive level of 'Big Pharma.' Circumstances soon mushroomed, from Dallas to Washington to Europe, and a major political event threatened him and his family. His career can be salvaged only by joining forces that are in diametric opposition to everything for which Marty has studied and fought. *********** For decades the public has made 'the Doctor' their God. Whatever he/she said was gospel. The exponential explosion of medical knowledge over the last 60 years, together with the advances in chemistry, biology, and pharmaceuticals, has forced the teaching institutions and their graduate doctors to trust the drug companies' research results and their claims. The public looks to the FDA (whose budget is over 60% funded by 'Big Pharma') as their protection. Surgery and pills have become 'health care.'
