The truth about the drug companies : how they deceive us and what to do about it by Marcia Angell( Book )

36 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 2,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angell watched drug companies stray from their original mission of discovering and manufacturing useful drugs and instead become vast marketing machines with unprecedented control over their own fortunes.

She sympathized as the American public, particularly the elderly, struggled and increasingly failed to meet spiraling prescription drug prices
Science on trial : the clash of medical evidence and the law in the breast implant case by Marcia Angell( Book )

When the FDA banned silicone gel-filled breast implants in 1992, it was responding to mounting concerns that they caused autoimmune and connective tissue disease. The ban triggered a torrent of litigation, as women by the thousands sued breast-implant manufacturers. Sympathetic juries awarded huge damages, leading to a $4.25 billion class-action settlement that still wasn't large enough to cover all the claims. Shockingly, rigorous scientific studies of breast implants

Truth about the drug companies by Marcia Angell( Recording )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this explosive expose of the drug companies and how they are ripping us off, Marcia Angell, M.D., a doctor, medical journalist, and a former editor of the respected New England Journal of Medicine, reveals the many ways in which the pharmaceutical industry has moved away from its original purpose of finding and producing useful new drugs. Now primarily a marketing machine that produces drugs of questionable benefit, the industry uses its wealth and power to co-opt such institutions as the U.S. Congress, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), academic medical centers, as well as the medical profession. In spite of a lack of innovative drugs and continuously growing prices, the drug companies invest most of their time and money in marketing, legal maneuvers to extend patient rights, and government lobbying to prevent price regulation

Bill Moyers journal( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ongoing debate over healthcare reform has made a battle zone of Capitol Hill. In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers and expert analysts Trudy Lieberman and Marci Angell examine the partisan messages that have emerged from the crossfire to gauge who is playing politics to manipulate-- and possibly derail-- meaningful reform. The Journal then revists the question of how popular right-wing media personalities affect the nation's political discourse with a report on what role hate speech may have played in last year's tragic shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church."--Container

Bill Moyers journal( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with Robert Wright, author of the bestseller The Evolution of God, to discuss why Wright thinks that a concept of God is imperative to a moral society and that whether God truly exists may not be as important as how the idea of God has changed over time. Moyers also speaks with Mary Sweeters, of Greenpeace USA, and Erich Pica, of Friends of the Earth, about why they believe President Obama is not doing enough to save the environment and what they think needs to be included in climate change legislation. An essay on insurers' efforts to steer healthcare reform legislation with big money--to the detriment of patients and medical practitioners-- concludes the program."--Container
