Product description

The $600 billion pharmaceutical industry spends more on marketing than it does on research and development. New diseases are invented in order to swell profits. It distorts and suppresses the results of clinical trials if they are unfavourable. Patients' pressure groups are covertly sponsored by pill manufacturers. Its offences are countless and the consequences are felt by us all. What we trust to cure us may be ineffectual or actually harmful. Ben Goldacre is Britain's finest writer on medical matters today and Bad Pharma is a brilliant and savage attack on an industry rife with corruption.
