scary
so they caught this one
What if a research study is not really aimed at producing genuine scientific knowledge at all? The documents emerging in litigation suggest that pharmaceutical companies are designing, analyzing, and publishing trials primarily as a way of positioning their drugs in the marketplace. This raises a question unconsidered in any current code of research ethics. How much risk to human subjects is justified in a study whose principal aim is to "generate commercially attractive messages"?

Now they have a county with an HIV outbreak because there's nowhere in the county to get an HIV test.  For bonus unintended consequence points:  Most of the outbreak is related to shared needles by drug users.

Prediction:  we'll soon hear about other problems cropping up due to the lack of Planned Parenthood services in those counties.

Woot! I’ve been keeping of this partly under my hat because I was afraid of jinxing it, but just got word that it’s official. Many of you may remember, that I auditioned for a Sesame Street workshop last year. It was an amazing experience, but I figured…
