Sometime after 1987, chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) was banned for use as a propellant for all products in the U.S. based on questionable findings from science regarding some product uses.
CFC was used in hair sprays, refrigerants, medicinal dispensers and other applications. It was said to have been a contributor in depleting the ozone layer surrounding the earth and was also an initial step by the environmentalists to gain a foothold as a political movement.
The Huntsville Examiner found that one specific use for the CFC was as a propelant for asthma and COPD sufferers who used the prescription inhaler content ‘albuterol.’ The drug had reached generic classification and sold for about $8.00 per palm held canister, a container smaller than a tiny salt shaker.
The drug manfacturers immediately forced brand names on the market, such as Ventolin HFA or Proair, as well as a huge increase in the cost of the inhalers.
The market price of Ventolin HFA is now about $40.00, an increase of 500%, and is not in the formulary of many insured, meaning that you will pay the prefered brand price to save the planet from the propellant that you inhale with no influence on the ozone layer when used in prescription drugs.
Additionally, the prefered brand makers have stopped all generic brands available in the U.S. such as Asthalin, made and used all over the world.
