One thought on “Policy and Regulatory Decision Making in the Medical Profession

  1. I am eager to read more about bent science. I too notice discrepancies, and unethical conflict of interest from research to legislative policy makers to companies that market themselves as watchdog groups. Check out the LeapFrog group, their advertising, member, affiliations, and their board of directors. You will find how they cannot do what they claim honestly when the big business of medicine and wallstreet lines their pockets. Oddly enough medical and nursing texts in colleges use them as the good examples of healthcare watchdog advocates.
