 Bill Resnick talks with Ben Goldacre about the pharmaceutical industry's influence on science research. He points out that because clinical trials don't have to be published, there's a remarkable bias in favor of pharmeceutical manufacturers. He talks about the deleterious effects this has on doctor's and independent academic researcher's ability to evaluate approaches to treatment.

Dr. Ben Goldacre is the author of international best-seller Bad Science and more lately Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients.
