Bad science : quacks, hacks, and big pharma flacks by Ben Goldacre( Book )

While exposing quack doctors and nutritionists, bogus credentialing programs, and biased scientific studies, the author takes the media to task for its willingness to throw facts and proof out the window in its quest to sell more copies.

Bad pharma : how drug companies mislead doctors and harm patients by Ben Goldacre( Book )

29 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 1,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We like to imagine that medicine is based on evidence and the results of fair tests. In reality, those tests are often profoundly flawed. We like to imagine that doctors are familiar with the research literature about a drug, when in reality much of the research is hidden from them by drug companies. We like to imagine that doctors are impartially educated, when in reality much of their education is funded by the pharmaceutical industry. We like to imagine that regulators let only effective drugs onto the market, when in reality they approve useless drugs, with data on side effects casually withheld from doctors and patients. All these problems have been shielded from public scrutiny because they're too complex to capture in a sound bite. But Ben Goldacre shows that the true scale of this murderous disaster fully reveals itself only when the details are untangled. He believes we should all be able to understand precisely how data manipulation works and how research misconduct on a global scale affects us. This book reveals a shockingly broken system and calls for something to be done.--From publisher description

In the recent stock meltdown, we discovered that some of our most important experts - our financial gurus - didn't know much at all. So what about all the other experts out there? Are they just part of a new cult of expertise, an ever-growing "expert industry" that's become our new religion?"--Container.

Mala farma : cómo las empresas farmacéuticas engañan a los médicos y perjudican a los pacientes by Ben Goldacre( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La medicina está en quiebra. Mientras los pacientes creen que los fármacos que toman son seguros y están aprobados, y los médicos intentan prescribir los medicamentos más efectivos, en la industria farmacéutica global, que mueve cada año casi 5 billones de euros, reina la corrupción y la avaricia. Los médicos y los pacientes necesitan estudios científicos solventes para poder tomar decisiones informadas. Pero las empresas proporcionan una información sesgada de sus medicamentos, distorsionando y exagerando los resultados y eliminando aquellos aspectos que no les favorecen. Las agencias reguladoras de los gobiernos ocultan información de vital importancia. Y médicos y asociaciones de pacientes aparentemente independientes están financiados por la industria. El conjunto de estos factores hace que, inevitablemente, un gran número de pacientes se vea perjudicado por las malas prácticas de la industria farmacéutica. Mala farma es un ataque claro e inteligente a este estado de cosas, y nos demuestra con toda exactitud las distorsiones a las que se ve sometida la ciencia, cómo ello contribuye a la destrucción de nuestros servicios de salud, y qué facil sería arreglar esta situación
