Baltimore Health Examiner - Medical Information: tainted or pure? - Examiner.com

Baltimore Health Examiner - Medical Information: tainted or pure? - Examiner.com: "Here’s a secret: the medical information that you hear, whether on the radio, on TV or straight from your doctor’s mouth, may not be as pure as you think. You might imagine that those medical experts on the morning news or big-shot specialists at Johns Hopkins are simply sharing straight-up facts. Think again.

As much as we, physicians, like to imagine that we are unbiased, there are many forces influencing us. Drug companies dangling generous consulting fees, the desire to please media sponsors, and the need to recruit patients for our research studies just to name a few."
