What to believe these days....medical literature not what it seems.

The NY Times has revealed that Wyeth Pharmaceuticals hired writers to emphasize the benefits of hormone replacement therapy versus the risks to prop up sales of its hormone drugs Premarin & Prempro. These articles were published in 18 medical journals between 1998 to 2005 and did not disclose that Wyeth initiated and paid for this work.

Unfortunately, many health care practitioners rely on these medical journals in making judgements as to what to recommend to their patients.

You can read more about this practice in the NY Times.

Yours in health,
