It was an eye opening look at a $70 billion part of our economy. I don't understand why is there no outrage over 83,000 heart-attacks and deaths from Avandia, yet for weeks now the attention has focused on 4 deaths in the mid-East?
Whether these ties altered the report on Avandia may be impossible for readers to know. But while sorting through the data from more than 4,000 patients, the investigators missed hints of a danger that, when fully realized four years later, would lead to Avandia’s virtual disappearance from the United States:
I think an even better question is "why is there so comparatively little sustained outrage from 83,000 heart attacks and deaths from Avandia, but the country is up in arms when Google maps doesn't work right on their new i-product"?
