Sometimes I’m really impressed by kevinmd.com. This interesting aggregator site has some pretty provocative articles. Take his latest post, an excerpt from “Unhinged” by Daniel Carlat, MD. For a quick little excerpt concerning the excesses of big Pharma check out this.
BTW, Big Pharma, of its own accord admits that it spends 30% of its budget on advertising to the public and doctors. Seems simplistic but if we made this illegal, like all but one other nation in the world (New Zealand, btw) we could drastically reduce the costs of meds in the U.S. without affecting profits for these big corporations. No brainer, huh?
I’m thinking this book goes on my reading list, asap.
