submitted by: admin on 06/20/2018

Can We Afford Medicaid Expansion?

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2023

Just Because a Company Does Public Service Does Not Mean it is Selling Healthy Products

submitted by: admin on 11/22/2014
The November 2014 issue of the Journal of :Public Policy and Marketing asked the question, "Do companies that 'do good' sell unhealthy food?" Let's make it easy.

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
A lack of openness about designs and results of clinical trials, coupled with inadequate oversight of off-label use of drugs and adaverse events, puts consumers of health products at risk.

Radical Healthcare Reform and the Future of Medicine

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2023
  Health care reform (HCR) is a necessity, but little true HCR is on the table for either Democrats or Republicans.

Neither approach represents HCR; they merely address how the present health care system might be sustained. Dean...

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
