Big Business Corrupts the Science Behind Medical Research

Reddit

According to Yahoo News, a new study has found that clinical trials funded by drug companies are more likely to report positive results.

The study, led by researchers at Harvard Medical School, appears in the May 17 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Another study from earlier this year found that drug companies are paying more and more for medical research.

What does this mean? When drug companies pay for research to promote their new drugs, they often simply suppress or manipulate the results. Science has taken a back seat, and High-Dollar Marketing is at the wheel.
