Eli Lilly and Walmart to Provide Affordable Insulin


Eli Lilly and Company announced they’re teaming up with Walmart to provide an affordable insulin option for people with diabetes.
Beginning in mid-September, Lilly’s Humulin(R) brand of insulin will be available in Walmart pharmacies across the U.S. under the dual-branded name Humulin(R) ReliOn(R), including 10 mL vials of Humulin(R) R U-100, Humulin(R) N, and Humulin(R) 70/30 formulations.

Humulin, the world’s first synthetic human insulin, was introduced by Lilly in 1982.

Eli Lilly promotes sales of their #1 drug (Zyprexa $4.8 billion per year) that can *cause* diabetes and then turns around and makes billions selling more drugs to treat the diabetes.
Lilly’s cash cow Zyprexa has been over-prescribed and linked to a 10-times greater risk of causing type 2 diabetes and increased risk of heart attack.
