After he was done speaking, Ichiro turned around and left immediately.
At this time, Charlie said to Anthony, “This Japanese man seems a bit insidious. If he really thinks that you have the prescription for high-level paraplegia, you should be more careful. After all, once this magical pill is mass-produced, he would be able to gain absolute wealth in this world.”
There was a movie called ‘I am not the God of Medicine’ not too long ago, and it was about a Chinese leukemia patient. Since he could not afford the extremely expensive medicine produced by Western cultures, he could only go to India to buy some imitation medication.
Through this movie, you could actually see how black-hearted those large
pharmaceutical groups could be just because they wanted to make some money. When a new drug was developed, a patient needed to spend at least twenty to thirty thousand dollars a month to afford the medication. What else could the patient do?
Kobayashi Pharma also wanted to get their hands on a few special drugs that they could mass-produce to sell at a high price. That was the reason why they had set their sights on Anthony.
In truth, Ichiro felt that if he had the prescription to create a pill that could cure high paraplegia, it would be equivalent to having a powerful tool for collecting money.
A person with high paraplegia was unable to get out of bed, walk, or even urinate voluntarily. This often made the patients feel that it would be better for them to be dead than alive because if they were alive, their families would have to suffer alongside them.
If a billionaire suffered from high paraplegia, he would definitely be more than willing to fork out fifty million dollars or more just to receive a single pill that could cure his disease.
If a billionaire like Bill Gates had high paraplegia, he could actually charge him fifty billion dollars for the medicine!
As for the poor people who had high paraplegia, Ichiro did not care about their life or death at all. What did it have to do with him anyway? He would never sell the medicine at a cheap price!
However, Ichiro had not expected Anthony to directly decline and turn down his request. Therefore, he could not help but feel a little angry.
Since Ichiro had already conducted his investigation before meeting Anthony, he knew that Anthony still had the magical pill that could cure high paraplegia.
Ichiro only needed to find a way to get his hands on the magical pill. After that, he would be able to bring it back to Japan with him so that his company’s pharmacists could analyze and study the ingredients in the magical pill so that they could eventually create the magical pill on their own!
Anthony could already figure out what was going on in Ichiro’s mind. After all, it would be impossible for a man with such huge interests to give up so easily. Anthony knew that Ichiro would definitely look for other ways and methods to get his hands on the magical pill.
Therefore, he told Charlie, “Please be rest assured, Mr. Wade. I will be careful.”
At this time, Charlie replied earnestly, “It is useless for you to be cautious. You have to understand the principle that everyone is innocent until they are proven guilty.”
Anthony hurriedly asked, “Mr. Wade, what do you think I should do then? I have been carrying the magical pill that you gave me around with me at all times. If they were to try and snatch it away from me, then…”
Charlie smiled slightly before he said, “I will temporarily refine a few more pills for you later, and you should carry those pills around with you. If someone tries to take the magical pill from you, you should give them those pills instead.”
In Charlie’s memory, he recalled that there was a kind of ‘Terminal Lucidity Pill’ recorded in the . This kind of pill was actually a type of poison. The patient would show great recovery in just a short time after taking the pill. However, after regaining his life and energy, the last of his body’s energy would be completely exhausted, and he would suffer sudden death.
Charlie did not know whether Ichiro’s father truly had high-level paraplegia, but if Ichiro tried to steal the magical pill from Anthony, he would definitely be out of luck then!
