DESCRIPTION: Billions in fines for bribery and suppressing data may just be the cost of doing business for drug companies, but surely doctors themselves have more integrity.

What else might your doctor not be telling you? See:
• Physicians May Be Missing Their Most Important Tool (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/physicians-may-be-missing-their-most-important-tool/)
• How Doctors Responded to Being Named a Leading Killer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-doctors-responded-to-being-named-a-leading-killer/)
• Optimal Diet: Just Give it To Me Straight, Doc (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-diet-just-give-it-to-me-straight-doc)
• Should We All Get Colonoscopies Starting at Age 50? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/should-we-all-get-colonoscopies-starting-at-age-50)
• Find Out If Your Doctor Takes Drug Company Money (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/find-out-if-your-doctor-takes-drug-company-money)

Good examples of conflicts of interest include:
• American Medical Association Complicity with Big Tobacco (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/american-medical-association-complicity-big-tobacco/)
• Sprinkling Doubt: Taking Sodium Skeptics with a Pinch of Salt (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/sprinkling-doubt-taking-sodium-skeptics-with-a-pinch-of-salt/)
• Evidence-Based Nutrition (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/evidence-based-nutrition/)
• Big Sugar Takes on the World Health Organization (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/big-sugar-takes-on-the-world-health-organization/)

Instead of just disclosing them, how about getting rid of them? That’s the subject of my next video: Eliminating Conflicts of Interest in Medical Research (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eliminating-conflicts-of-interest-in-medical-research).

Researching for yourself is a maze. Growing-up, I believed (truthful) results were going to save us! Never 4:23 assume smiling faces in the healing (Doctors) are working for YOU!

You're an awful speaker.

Eelke Aptroot says:

Keeping people healthy just isn't lucrative enough.

Earthling Carl says:

This will be such a brilliant resource to show people who have doubts, thanks so much! :)

For all the adamant meat eaters, this should be the nail in the coffin. For the longest time, meat eaters support their claims with phony studies that attempt to dilute or fix data to erase any correlation between animal products and different causes of mortality. Go to your studies and see who has been spoon feeding you lies.
