$150 or $60 billion in research tax dollars – either one should do it.
University of Chicago Economics Professor Dr. Kevin Murphy (nice article) studies the investment of research dollars devoted to life-sciences and the return-on-investment (ROI) in terms of our county’s economic health.
He has calculated:
Potential gains from future health improvements are also large; for example, a 1 percent reduction in cancer mortality would be worth $500 billion.That’s a 10-fold return on investment!
The Value of Health and Longevity” (Journal of Political Economy, 2006)
And, the numbers grow significantly if the modest reduction in various diseases (eg cardiovascular disease) doesn’t cost a lot to deliver. Potentially, future projections approach numbers like $95 trillion that could be added to the GDP.
Wow that’s a lot of money- like more then the value of all US homes.
Disease is really expensive. How about it?
It is the mission of BFLI to slash the 54% increased cancer death rate from continuous exposure of common everyday chemicals.
- So, is your health and the U.S. economy worth a modest investment of $150 to replace all the household toxic brew that may be in your home? (that’s hundred not billion!)
- Is an ROI of a reduced cancer death risk rate and $3400 savings from single use products attractive?
Can’t believe this is true? I've done the homework for you- just call! 617-504-4971.
