Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime

E and distract the public and their politiciansThe book addresses in evidence based detail an extraordinary system failure caused by widespread crime corruption bribery and impotent drug regulation in need of radical reform. A scary analysis of the many different malpractices done by the big pharmaceutical companies in order to increase their profitCollusion fabrication of documents threats falsification of data in clinical trials bribery are practices that are suitable to the organized crime than to any responsible industry Yet it s precisely the will and need to put money before people and also a very lenient attitude from public institutions that has made all the set of tricks above mentioned part and parcel of pharmaceutical industryAt the beginning of the book I was blown away by the narrative because Gotzsche spares no verbal means in order to attack the industry Unfortunately the book is some 450 pages long and after reading the first 4 or 5 chapters it gets very very repetitive Repetitive in the sense that he goes thru many cases of corruption that are conceptually the same the only difference being the company who perpetrated itI also have to say that Gotszche s straight forward language can make him look and read very arrogantSomewhere along the book you will realize that all these malpractices are not only common between organized crime and pharma companies but the same is applicable to any other industry I mean nowadays there re conflict of interest with many politicians CEOs and lobbiesGotzsche has the naive impression that accepting gifts from companies in order to curry favour is a moral sin that has to be punished Unfortunately things like that are a widespread practice He has a point though There s something that sets pharma industry apart from other industries and that s the fact that reimbursements cost the taxpayers big money It s not only they cheat to increase their revenue but also that they are charging governments obscene amounts of money by doing soThose 450 pages can be nicely summarized in this paper I happened to come across on the Internet It s barely 18 pages but after reading you will get the same idea as if you had gone thru this bookHEREAn interesting read but way too much convoluted with very detailed information
