INJURY BOARD: U.S. Lacks Warning System on Artificial Joints

Excellent article here from Injury Board.

Upton Sinclair said it best: "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

Earlier articles revealed that as part of a settlement agreement with the United States attorney in Newark, the five largest manufacturers of artificial joints released records showing they paid physicians and hospitals more than $200 million this year. Some doctors promoting these devices received nearly $2,000,000 in one year alone. How unbiased can this be?

Daily, we see plastic surgeons and med device public relations people thoughout the interwebs promoting implants and other expensive surgeries ... how much do they earn ?

This excellent CBS piece, discussed how much the vaccination industry promoters receive hundreds of thousands of dollars.

With the various media being filled with industry voices disguised as unbiased writers, our health decisions are put at risk.

Prominent Breast Implant / Fen-Phen Attorney, Rick Laminack, accused as 'Sexual Predator' & for 'Defrauding' Clients

Thank you, Toxic Discovery for this information.
Robinson brings broader allegations involving fen-phen litigation against the defendants. Robinson, a Magnolia, Texas, woman who worked on fen-phen litigation while employed at the firms, alleges the defendants engaged in mail fraud under 18 U.S.C. §1962 for mailing settlement statements to fen-phen clients that contained overcharges for medical records. Robinson alleges "firm employees would order fictitious medical records" for clients from health-care providers that had never treated those clients, and then the firms added $100 to $150 to the expenses deducted from the clients' portion of their fen-phen settlements for those "fictitious medical records." She alleges the record companies would then pay a "kickback" to employees of the firms.
