most recieved $100 to $1,000/year


Study was expanded upon by Mercola, May 2018

    “One-Quarter of All Doctors Prescribe Opioids to Medicare Patients and Receive Payments From Opioid Makers”
    “… many of the states struggling with the highest rates of overdose deaths, such as Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey, also had the most opioid-related payments to physicians”
