The perversion of science
May 06, 2017
Here is short article from the Washington Examiner showing an interview with Dr. Marcia Angell, who was the editor of The New England Journal of Medicine from 1999-2000. She says that “research once considered independent is now paid for by the pharmaceutical industry.”
She continued, saying, “I became to be extremely distrustful of most of the research that was published. We did our very best, we often rejected things because it was clearly biased, but anything we rejected always ended up in another journal.”
Dr. Angell’s mistrust of Big Pharma is backed up by personal practice. She says that she will not take any drug until it has been on the market at least five years.
It appears that many articles in the journals have been reduced to mere drug ads.
