So it seems natural to be skeptical when there's a cloud over a prescription drug issue in America as there would be over any substantive issue or problem in the country. And whether its prescription drugs or illicit drugs or any of the other myriad issues we have, there is always the need when looking critically at the issue or problem and that's "follow the money".
It's unfortunate everything of consequence in America needs to be seen in that light but that's the reality so a healthy dose of skepticism is warranted whenever high level pronouncements are made.
Let's hope Ridker and Cook's exposing the flaws in the findings of the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology will be accepted and millions of people will be exempted as not being at risk and the big drug outfits will have less oodles of $ in their Christmas stockings.
