I read the headline, “GSK clinches deal to buy Human Genome for $3 billion,” and thought…GSK bought the patent to the human genome? OMG!

Turns out they only bought a company called Human Genome Sciences Inc., further monopolizing the health care industry amongst a few elite companies so that they can continue to gouge insurance companies who in turn charge us at higher and nearly unaffordable rates.

Whew, right?
