When Ben Goldacre’s book Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients was published in England, it prompted government investigations into the pharmaceutical companies’ withholding of clinical trial data. Now the book is being published in the United States with a focus on this country’s medical industry. Goldacre began his career as a doctor but left the profession to devote himself to exposing the corruption in the health care system.
