Julia, Your site is awesome! Way to go. I've always believed physicians/scientist have had their hand in the Cookie Jar!!! I know what you are doing will open the eyes of a lot of people.


While attending farmacy skool(sic, sick,sickest)
and working the work of a frmcist in hospitals, I got to ask them(drug reps) why they did not teach drs the known and proven cures for cancer(as used in other countries, and used to be used legally in the u.s.a.)...
they ALWAYS said "M.O.N.E.Y"
in these words"it can't be patented"...
they NEVER said "it doesn't work" never, not once.
see maureen salamans "Nutrition the cancer answer" for the proof.
and Dr.Max Gerson (testified before congress with the known cure of cancers by diet; was denied approval to even study it through AMA channels - it still works, just not legally)


Determined Pharmaceutical Detailers

In response to the vexing sales pitches regarding drugs promoted by lucrative pharmaceutical companies, who share information that typically is either embellished or fabricated, the concept of what is known in the U.S. as academic detailing was born, by Dr. J. Avorn, about 25 years ago. Yet the implementation of this idea did not occur until recently.
Dr. Avorn, who also authored, “Powerful Medicines” in 2005, developed this concept due to the absurdness of how drugs were being detailed presently. This was being done by over-populated sales forces of huge pharmaceutical corporations that failed to provide any useful information that was authentic and beneficial for health care providers and their patients.
The first academic detailing program began through the Department of Aging of Pennsylvania in 2005 in an effort to save the state’s PACE program. The PACE program helped elderly patients with funds to receive medication they need to maintain or restore their health. The program is called The Independent Drug Information Services. The members share objective information related to the use of pharmaceuticals that is evidence-based.
Since then, a bill was presented to the U.S. Legislature in the Spring of 2008. Called, “The Independent Drug Education and Outreach Act (IDEA Act), the passage of this bill would allow for academic detailing programs to be federally funded throughout the United States.
Other advocates for Academic Detailing programs include the following sites:,, and The National Coalition for Appropriate Prescribing.
In addition, the following is additional information about academic detailing:
Good Health Systems- Managed Care HMO that offers academic detailing to at least 8 states that are their clients. Addresses the several benefits of academic detailing Offers a very objective analysis about the benefits of academic detailing. Offers a complete description and purpose of academic detailing

her on-air assertions that the full disclosure of physician/authors' financial ties to pharmaceutical companies had been a sincere concern of hers since before taking over the JAMA editorship in 2000, led me to do my own research

Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to this require a lot of work? I've absolutely no understanding of computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask. Appreciate it!
