E-DRUG:  List of books on medicines and/or Big Pharma (2)
[We will add to the master list and make that available as described by 
Douglas.  BS]

Dear E-druggers,

I would like to add to the list the newest book by Peter G�tzsche

"Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare"
By:Peter G�tzsche

Copying from the Publisher's website:

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't
sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so
different from anything else in life...Virtually everything we know
about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our
doctors...the reason patients trust their medicine is that they
extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines
they prescribe. The patients don't realise that, although their
doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and
psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that hasn't been
carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry! If you don't
think the system is out of control, then please email me and explain
why drugs are the third leading cause of death.  'If such a hugely lethal
epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one
hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it
under control.'

In his latest ground-breaking book, Peter C G�tzsche exposes the
pharmaceutical industries and their charade of fraudulent behavior,
both in research and marketing where the morally repugnant disregard
for human lives is the norm 1. He convincingly draws close comparisons
with the tobacco conglomerates, revealing the extraordinary truth
behind efforts to confuse and distract the public and their

The book addresses, in evidence-based, well referenced detail, an extraordinary 
failure caused by widespread crime, corruption, bribery and impotent
drug regulation in need of radical reforms.
