Spending more money on advertising than research
Right. You spend money on advertising as you see necessary to sell your product so you can stay in business.
Pushing the bounds of advertising, both to the public and to professionals to rather dubious levels
So what you're really thinking about there is the poor state of critical thinking skills in the average person who watches TV?
You don't need to advertise health products unless you can't convince doctors that they're a healthy, necessary solution. So you make a Superbowl ad instead, utterly mislead non-doctors (i.e. the rest of us) and have them pester their doctors for a prescription.
You're essentially blaming people for not having medical degrees. You are a complete and immoral idiot.
