Medical Science for sale!

The need to protect ourselves from the 'deceptions' of medical research is wonderfully described in this article in the Huffington Post, which is rapidly becoming a major source of important health information, avoided by most of the mainstream media.

In this, Mark Hyman, a medical doctor, talks of the 'dangers of evidence-based medicine', of medical science that is 'for sale', and will say, and publish anything for payment, the threat Big Pharma companies feel from their own failings, and the emergence of homeopathy, and other traditional medicines, the increasing litigation they are facing, and the enormous sums of money they have had to pay out, the problem with 'misleading' media reports, and much else.

I recommend that you read it as it is a useful summary. For a more detailed assessment, have a look at my e-book, The Failure of Conventional Medicine.
