Abstract: Allegedly scientific information advanced in medical and scientific journals and presented to regulators influences medical perception and practice upon which both public policy makers and clinicians base their decisions while corporate influence (including deeply institutionalized conflicts of personal and professional interest) further skew decision-making toward corporate, not health, interests.
The economic health, indeed, possibly the survival, of a nation hangs on the decisions of those public policy makers while individual health, and possible demise, hangs on the decisions of the clinicians influenced by, and controlled by, those decisions.
Ideally, both scientific literature and regulatory policies are developed free from commercial agendas. In practice, at least in the United States, that is absolutely not the case.
