Certain parties don't want you to know certain facts. For example, if Bayer were proud that it
introduced heroin to the world, wouldn't that fact be on the company's Website? After all, it was
one of the most popular drugs of the twentieth century. The official corporate history mentions
the release of aspirin in 1899 but not heroin during the previous year.
