It is July 4th and am surfing the web to see what our freedoms hath wrought...

Danny Carlat, the self-styled independent shrink has a blog that lumps drugwonks into the pro pharma group and then has another grouping dubbed "Great Pharma Information."

Included are the whack jobs over at the Alliance for Human Research Protection who pushed the SSRI-suicide connection and was founded by Loren Mosher, who believed that manic depression has no biological basis. http://www.ahrp.org

Great pharma information?

And we also have the Prescription Access Litigation Project. That is a labor/Public Citizen/PIRG dragnet for lawsuits against drug companies that -- in combination with Trial Laywers, Inc. -- split the profits of settlements. No financial interest there of course. One of the law firms that is quarterbacking the PAL litigation is Hagens Berman Sobol and Shapiro which is famous for suing Apple for designing the Ipod for playing music too loud through earphones and possible causing deafness. (Volume conrtrol anyone?) Berman Sobol is also "investigating" Glaxo...as in: If you, or someone you love, took Avandia and suffered a heart attack or heart related death you may want to contact one of our attorneys in order to determine if your are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Please e-mail HBSS at info@hbsslaw.com or call 206-623-7292."

Great Pharma info indeed. Let Carlat ally himself with anti-science extremists and tort lawyers. In the wake of the SSRI-suicide debacle I will put my trust in the so-called pharma-academic complex any day..... Commercialization, carefully constructed and considered -- is the key to medical progress. The notion that purging capitalism from medical research will produce better medicine is not only a hypothesis that has been tested and rejected, it is dangerous.

Let freedom ring!
