Confused Again

What is it w/ all the (Any, even!) adverts for gout medication?
Gout has increased in frequency in recent decades affecting approximately one to two percent of the Western population at some point in their lives. The increase is believed to be due to increasing risk factors in the population, such as metabolic syndrome, longer life expectancy and changes in diet. Gout was historically known as "the disease of kings" or "rich man's disease".
Trying to class up the place by stealing from Wikipedia.
Whatever the Wikiteer means by "Western population" we dunno, but why adverts everywhere if only one or two percent of the idiots stuffing themselves like the pigs they are get it? We certainly don't need to see them. Get back to advertising the crap that every American thinks he needs: Cars & mobile 'phone plans.

We expect the Heritage Foundation will soon issue a report claiming that as we now have "rich man's disease," poverty has been eradicated.
