I have seen similar articles discussed before on here and I have chipped in on those discussions too.

At one time I could challenge my doctor to show me his research articles when he prescribed me a new (to the market) med, but I no longer trust the majority of the articles written. My Neuro won't openly admit to me that he distrusts some of these published articles, but I can tell he gets uncomfortable at times when we discuss them.

I am lucky because he is one of the top Neuro's at a state teaching/research hospital that is affiliated with a University. He knows many of the top publishing doctors in the business so he helps weed the wheat from the chaff in Neurological research.

wow this is most disturbing, but not suprising. So your basically telling me that these corporations have their guys come in to write an analysis on a drug they created? And the doctors name who supposedly reviewed it is at home taking these drugs thinking of what he did? Just kidding
No but seriously this is a very interesting article, it makes sense though, not that I agree at all. I think is a shameful action taken by these doctors.

You're right Cyrax - this is shocking. You really can't read any article these days without trying to read between the lines and think 'where's the money'? It really shouldn't be that way - but decent research on drug trials seems to cost a fortune, and who is it that has the money? The big drug companies. Conflict of interest, eh?

I think there should be a new rule in publishing articles in journals saying that the first thing on the article, after the author's names and titles, should be a LIST OF SPONSORS AND CONTRIBUTORS TO THE PAPER.

Normally it's tucked away just before the references, and frankly by that time you have lost the will to live anyway

Healy says such deception is becoming more frequent. 'I believe 50 per cent of articles on drugs in the major medical journals are not written in a way that the average person would expect them to be... the evidence I have seen would suggest there are grounds to think a significant proportion of the articles in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, the British Medical Journal and the Lancet may be written with help from medical writing agencies,' he said. 'They are no more than infomercials paid for by drug firms.'


50%!!!
Oh and this beauty...


'A recognised doctor will then be found to put his or her name to it and it will be submitted to a journal without anybody knowing that a ghostwriter or a drug company is behind it. I agree this is probably unethical, but all the firms are at it.'


So its not just a few bad apples, this is full blown unwritten procedure! And how is it 'probably' unethical? Grrr, it is unethical and all firms are doing it.

Sickening isn,t it?

These are the people who would have you taking $10,000 dollars of drugs a year that at best do nothing and at worst make you sicker,and the other marvellous practise of outlawing alternative therapies that actually do work


I hope they all choke on their own artifical and poisonous crap themselves

not a suprise...

At this point there is nothing I would put past Big Pharma. There is no low too low for these criminals. And even if this came to the MSM nothing would change. They have such a strong hold over the beltway that ther is almost no undoing it.

But after all, what do we expect when money is more important than people?

In the USA:

The Merck Medical Manual is the doctors' bible, written by....

Merck Pharmaceuticals:





One CFR published policy objective is substantial worldwide depopulation including half of the current U.S. population being targeted. This population reduction program is largely funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Merck Fund, both financially and administratively linked to the Merck pharmaceutical company--the world's leading vaccine manufacturer........Records show the Merck pharmaceutical company received a major share of the Nazi "flight capital" at the close of World War II when its president, George W. Merck, was America's biological weapons industry director. These facts were revealed by Norman Covert, Army public relations director at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD, and veteran news correspondent Paul Manning in his book "Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile" (Lyle Stuart, Inc, 1981).
