The drug companies are still at it, wining and dining doctors and supporting medical charities.
They even start some of these organisations. One of the impotence charities and a smoking cessation charity have been set up by drug companies. This enables them to circumvent advertising legislation. It enables them to medicalize common body system dysfunctions and foibles.
What is happening is the pharmaceutical industry is working hand in glove with sections of the medical industry. Doctors set up medical charities to feed their egos and their researchers in the sheltered workshops for the academically gifted - but all in the guise of helping their customers.
Diabetes institutes would have to be the worst of a bad bunch. Everyone knows that type 2 diabetes comes with lack of exercise and a flour and sugar diet. The treatment, pharmaceutricals
Some of the doctors and researchers get stipends from drug companies to give lectures and seminars to doctors.
It's a great big medical/pharmaceutical cesspit.
Fom the Diuabetes Australia website:
'Diabetes Australia has implemented a national partnerships strategy to advance the national diabetes agenda. National partnerships are established to: increase revenue available for research, enhance relationships with pharmaceutical companies and provide a national focus for corporate organisations, while working with stakeholders to ensure value for all.'
Nothing there about enhancing relationships with the fitness industry.
On the track.
No track today. Achilles too sore.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and steer clear of junk medicine.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and start up a medical charity and get a drug company to sponsor it.
