The Truth About the Drug Companies Lecture - Dr. Marcia Angell

" It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. "

  • Nothing new in what he said. Anup. A few people can be bribed but not the entire community. Every doctor knows what Dr angell said

    Yes. Medical science is not simple. Every patient is different in physiology and biochemistry and hence responding differently to medicines and other forms of treatment.

    Paracetamol is a very simple OTC drug used for headache and bodyache but in many including myself it's ineffective. The response to medicine also different at different times. I myself could not take fenugreek seeds ( if count that as medicine) more than a few days. I used to have severe pain in abdomen so much so that once i had to get my ecg done. But now for last 3-4 months i'm taking twice daily and there is absolutely nothing happening to me.
