Ounces of prevention

It has long been wisely said that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure;" but it is the "pound of cure" that makes the big money, and is in a compulsive system in which corporate management dare not violate the profit-maximization principle.

The consumer has long been the fall-guy in this scenario, and big time. It is part of the routine.

The consumer isn't necessarily helpless in this scenario, however. One can choose to more wisely invest adequate effort into hunting down and utilizing the "ounces of prevention" that work for oneself. This preserves more of one's own small portion of that "big money" to be available for one's own more intelligent uses.
