DC's (David Colquhoun) Improbable Science says .... "It’s weird that medicine, the most caring profession, is more corrupt than any other branch of science.  The reason, needless to say, is money. Well, money and vanity.  The publish or perish mentality of senior academics encourages dishonesty. It is a threat to honest science. Ben Goldacre’s book 'Bad Pharma' shows the consequences: harm to patients and huge wastage of public money. Read it. Do something."
