Hooked: Ethics, the Medical Profesion, and the Pharmaceutical Industry

by Howard Brody (Author)

Book Description
For decades, medical professionals have betrayed the public's trust by accepting
various benefits from the pharmaceutical industry. Both drug company
representatives and doctors employ artful spin to portray this behavior
positively to the public, and to themselves. In Hooked, Howard Brody argues that
we can neither understand the problem, nor propose helpful solutions until we
identify the many levels of activity connecting these purportedly noble
industries. We can pass laws and enact regulations, but ultimately the medical
profession must take responsibility for its own integrity. Hooked is a wake-up
call for anyone expecting high quality, ethical medical care.
