Links to other Web Sites.
The Site contains links to other Web sites. We are not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions express in such Web sites, and such Web sites are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy or completeness by us.

Legal Compliance.
You agree to comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of the Site and the Content and Materials provided therein.

Miscellaneous.
This Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in New Jersey, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey (without regard to conflict of law principles). If you don't like that we can use Sweden instead. But only if we agree to do so. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE MUST BE INSTITUTED WITHIN ONE (1) MONTH AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER WAIVED AND BARRED. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth above. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. THE FACT THAT WE USE HUMOR IN THIS DOCUMENT SHALL NOT BE HELD AGAINST US AND SHALL NOT DIMINISH THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS DOCUMENT. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply in interpreting this Agreement. The headings in this Agreement are included for convenience only and shall neither affect the construction or interpretation of any provision of this Agreement nor affect any of the rights or obligations of the parties to this Agreement. Should any part of this Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed as much as possibly consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. So if we don’t get $1,000,000 when you breach this agreement, we expect to receive $999,999, and so on. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. Our rights under this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

checked in after a while and see your 'shaken' post. I am glad the thread went that way.

My favorite is the comment about making whistleblowing hot (or cool).

That is totally what we need.

Isn't that why John Lennon was so dangerous? He was totally aware of his media power and was ready to go full steam ahead with his message, not state/corporation sanctioned.

It is as cornball as it gets but why DID you get into Pharma? Was it only for the interesting marketing? It is not a sin to love or be good at marketing, but what maybe there is a core of wanting to make people healthy inside of you. How far away from that are you? Make some cocoa, put on your slippers and get in touch with your inner doctor.

You can combine the two (marketing and actually benefitting people), however, this society (and in your case, any Pharma company) TELLS you that you are combining the two (promoting good health) when you are actually just promoting good business. Marketing a drug seems to quickly move away from educating on capabilities to just sleazy sales tactics.

I love it that someone other than me is saying this to you. Think big. Bigger than you.

Doc Peter, I would like to share my story with you. I spent over 34 years with another major Big pharma Co. Have seen everything and have some incriminating documentation covering anything from bribery to use of fake trials to sell huge amounts of drugs, fake promotions, lies etc. etc. etc. You know the deal.
Books are great, but nothing will happen till someone takes a Big pharma co, to court of law with proofs of misconduct and wins. They are only afraid of the courts and nothing else. Bad publicity they know how to handle. How many books have been written and still nothing happens?
Unfortunately the large percentage of physicians are already corrupted beyond repair and that is perhaps the biggest crime that Big pharma has comitted, by constantly pushing $$ and other benefits at doctors. How long could they resisted. They are only humal after all, although some think they are not, but gods and can do anything they want. As do the Big pharma Co.s.

I have an interesting and unique idea how to write a book but would need advice and a "ghost writer".
Frankly I am concerned with my safety. Someone told me Big pharma would do anything to protect thier priviliged position in our society.
Is doc's e-mail available on this blog??
