Doctor says heart groups too cozy with industry
‘It's time to draw the line’ on corporate funding, says prominent cardiologist
The news article spends the 1st half of the story talking about how he got it wrong with the whole coke a cola funding some heart awareness campaign. Let's see if we can find a copy of his speech somewhere....
Putting his name into google:
He helped put the smack down on a diabetes drug that raises heart attack risk. Wonder if that drug is related to Avandia?
I don't know, but Dr Nissen has also been in Avandia's business it seems http://spotlight.vitals.com/2010/02/dr-steven-nissen-on-diabetic-drug-avandia-shown-to-damage-the-heart/
Oh man and Vytorin too http://blog.cleveland.com/medical/2008/01/clinics_dr_steven_nissen_stirs.html
And the FDA user fees too!
Ok, I have a new hero.
Still haven't found a copy of his speech!
