PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients Medicine is broken We like to imagine that it s based on evidence and the results of fair tests In reality those tests are often profoundly flawed We like to imagine that doctors are familiar with the research literature surrounding a drug when in reality much of the research is hidden from them by drug companies We like to imagine that doctors are impartially educated when in reality much of their education is funded by industry We like to imagine that regulators let only effective drugs onto the market when in reality they approve hopeless drugs with data on side effects casually withheld from doctors and patients .
All these problems have been protected from public scrutiny because they re too complex to capture in a sound bite But Dr Ben Goldacre shows that the true scale of this murderous disaster fully reveals itself only when the details are untangled He believes we should all be able to understand precisely how data manipulation works and how research misconduct on a global scale affects us In his own words the tricks and distortions documented in these pages are beautiful intricate and fascinating in their details With Goldacre s characteristic flair and a forensic attention to detail i Bad Pharma i reveals a shockingly broken system and calls for something to be done This is the pharmaceutical industry as it has never been seen before
