    Default Medical Journals Bought And Paid For

    ANH International
    August 12 2019

    …by Big Pharma advertisers.
    “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.” Those are the words of Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. She was discussing the ways in which clinical trial results can be manipulated by statistical tricks and then presented as the “gold standard” of medical evidence. But the corruption of medical information goes even deeper, and as is too often true, one needs only to follow the money. Put simply, medical journals—the journals that many doctors read and rely on to keep up-to-date—are completely beholden to the drug industry.

    And BTW, that Angell quote goes back a long time... years. The complete quote: "It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
