(Angell 2005) The truth about the drug companies


Angell, Marcia. The truth about the drug companies: how they deceive us and what to do about it. Revised and updated ed. New York: Random House; 2005.

Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, documents the corruption of clinical healthcare, medical research, and pharmaceutical regulation by drug-company money. She also emphasizes the extent to which drug-company profits are based on economic rents from privatization of publicly funded university research. Angell further notes that many so-called patient support groups are astroturfed fronts for drug companies.
