How Big Pharma Influences Medicine


February 13, 2016 - 7:53am — ShannonPetteruti

Here is the cover of a major medical journal that was sent to me free of charge. You'll notice the huge ad. That is not a tear away, that is the actual cover. Can you imagine how much the drug company spent for that ad? Do you think it could possibly have influenced the content of the Journal either in this  or future editions?

How might the public react to a politician if on the podium there was a huge poster stating "brought to you by big oil." I suspect there would be major concern about undue influence.

Pharmacies pay for medical education
