Two Medical Research Atrocities
1: 1/3 of all breast cancer research to date is actually cervical cancer research, and most researchers won’t check (to verify that the material they published about wasn’t mislabeled, which should cost only $200). via.
2: Merck, via Vioxx (I had a month of it pushed on me by a competent doctor who enjoyed their kickbacks or believed their literature), killed several hundred thousand people (more precisely: destroyed a million person-years; mostly the sick and elderly were killed). via. They were fined a paltry few billion dollars for knowing of the harms and suppressing the research findings - not nearly enough.
