Why is Massive Conflict of Interest Allowed in Government Health Recommendations?

Story at-a-glance -

  • Many government health recommendations are developed by “experts” who receive money from pharmaceutical companies
  • A telling example: Eight of the nine doctors on the panel that developed the new cholesterol guidelines had been making money from the drug companies that manufacture statin cholesterol-lowering drugs -- the same drugs the new guidelines suddenly created a dramatically larger market for in the United States
  • Conflict of interest is rampant in the field of medicine, even when it comes to recommendations from supposedly independent authorities, like the federal government, which makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to trust conventional health advice
  • Drug companies are also the biggest political lobby, which gives them untold influence over government, and the field of conventional medicine itself
  • When it comes to your health, you've got to dig below the surface and use all the resources available to you, including your own commonsense and reason, true independent experts' advice and other's experiences, to determine what medical treatment or advice will be best for you in any given situation
