‘This is an important book. Ben Goldacre is angry, and by the time you put ‘Bad Pharma’ down, you should be too.’ New Statesman

All of this is perfectly legal. In fact. even government regulators withhold vitally important data from the people who need it most. Doctors and patient groups have stood by too. and failed to protect us. Instead. they take money and favours. in a world so fractured that medics and nurses are now educated by the drugs industry.The result: patients are harmed in ...
