A report by the British Medical Journal has exposed key scientists who stood to profit from the swine flu pandemic.
According to their findings experts, who drew up the World Health Guidelines that advised governments to stock up on drugs in the event of swine flu, had financial ties with certain drug companies.
The investigation revealed that the scientists had openly declared these interests in other publications yet the World Health Organisation made no mention of these links.
The investigation by the BMJ and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a not-for-profit reporting unit, shows that WHO guidance issued in 2004 was authored by three scientists who had previously received payment for other work from Roche, which makes Tamiflu, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), manufacturer of Relenza.
The inference therefore has to be drawn that the parties had a conflict of interest while drawing up the guidelines.

Now come on you can't say "OTHER stuff" and then not spill the beans! What other stuff?

However I can tell you from experience, the "conflict of interest" thing is just not straightforward.
There are definitely positives & negatives attached to the manner in which the industry & Drs work together.....& work together they must.

it's actually quite nice to have our tin foil hat wearing theories validated by the BMD and other sources. You may not hear this on the main MSM sites though.
