Just another example of how we are getting feed a load of crap by big Pharma.

These drug companies are writing all their own studies, research after getting credible doctors, and putting their names on the reports, then have results published in medical journals to make them more credible.

What's wrong with this picture?

So what this tells us is research and facts need to be looked at with discernment.

Merck Writes Own Research then puts Doctors names on them.

The drug maker Merck drafted dozens of research studies for a best-selling drug, then lined up prestigious doctors to put their names on the reports before publication, according to an article to be published Wednesday in a leading medical journal.

The article, based on documents unearthed in lawsuits over the pain drug Vioxx, provides a rare, detailed look in the industry practice of ghostwriting medical research studies that are then published in academic journals.
