Big Pharm & The Doctors vs The Tort Lawyers

Eventually, it will happen. There will come a day of reckoning.

Eventually, it’s going to be common knowledge that the powerful pharmaceutical industry, aided by gullible doctors and a host of other well-meaning, but ignorant individuals and entities, have been engaged in the kind of cover-up akin to the one the cigarette manufacturers engaged in for decades. The tobacco industry knew for many years that their product was harmful. They had studies that showed the harm. After years of winning cases, they suddenly began to lose. It seems information had leaked out about the secret studies, and the information about the studies was no longer a closely-held secret. The “other side” knew about it.
