    Its crazy that this is even legal.  We also need to ban direct consumer advertising for prescription drugs too.  We are just one of 2 nations that allow this to happen.

    [QUTOE]The British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline will no longer pay doctors to promote its products and will stop tying compensation of sales representatives to the number of prescriptions doctors write, its chief executive said Monday, effectively ending two common industry practices that critics have long assailed as troublesome conflicts of interest.[/QUOTE]

    That is excellent news. Hopefully the other Pharma companies will follow suit.

    This legalized bribery makes the 'payola scandals' of the 50s look like chump change.

    It's not the "bribery" that bothers me, it's the huge incentive for doctors to push drugs where there may be much healthier ways to help a patient.
