Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Truth about the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do about It (Paperback)
Yes, it's somewhat repetitive but there's valuable information here, offered by a former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, considered the most prestigious medical journal in the world.
It's just a pity that the only readers of this book are likely to be the already-converted. Everyone should know this information, as well as that contained in similarly worthwhile books like Fear of the Invisible, Trick and Treat, Selling Sickness, Dirty Medicine, Racketeering In Medicine, Bad Pharma, The Great Cholesterol Con, Heart Frauds, How to Protect Your Heart from Your Doctor, Confessions of a Medical Heretic (amusingly written, by a medical doctor, as well as scandalous), The Medical Mafia (also by a medic, similar theme as Confessions and passionately but badly written), The Truth About Vaccines, Cancer: Why We're Still Dying to Know the Truth, The Cancer Industry, Cancer is Not a Disease, and Why We will Never Win the War on AIDS.
