Pfizer’s Ghostwritten Hormone Therapy Articles Not Retracted?

I think its disgusting the way that Big Pharma uses their money to further the ideas that their drugs are safe. Even worse the government and respected medical journals are their puppets. I came across this article this morning titled, Why are Pfizer’s Ghostwritten Hormone Therapy Articles Not Retracted? and it made me so happy that somebody is calling foul on the US National Library of Medicine and their decision to overlook the ethics of providing access to an obviously unscientific ghostwritten article. It’s bad enough that these companies have doctors on their pay rolls, but to include top medical schools and their journals is disturbing. So often these schools are lauded for their scientific work and medical advances, yet they can’t even bother to check the accuracy of the studies they publish. I thought the purpose of medicine was to find cures for illnesses and pain not cause it. When you provide doctors with studies saying that hormone replacement therapy  (HRT) is safe then you are causing an increased risk of a laundry list of health problems for thousands of women. I know there are tons of women that swear by HRT and say that without it they couldn’t have gotten through menopause but that’s not the point. The point is that there is false information being provided by the company making the drugs and it’s not being questioned by the authorities in place to protect us. You can learn more about the lies of companies such and Wyeth and UpJohn by buying the book, Stay Young and Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained by Dr. Jonathan V. Wright and Lane Lenard Ph.D with a forword by Suzanne Somers.
