$110 million overall so far.
Read it and weep over what else that money could be spent on.
The power of persuasion. It costs money. What else would the Chamber of Commerce and AARP spend money on. It wouldn't be vaccines for kids....
And doesn't that ad revenue provide us with TV programming that we enjoy for no charge (speaking as one who does not have cable)?
I don't feel the same angst.
Is all money worth ? I mean after spending so much of $$$ still we lack in spreading awareness about health.
The day when AIDS prevention ads came on TV, Disease rate is not decreased it is increasing day by day.
Why can't we invest that money in curing poor people or at least half of that money can save life of many.
Have a thought !
