The information in here is golden. How oncologists pressure patients to undergo procedures that have no proven benefit. How pharmaceutical companies have bought government. How and why nutritional research is underfunded. How pharmaceutical companies don't actually pay for the research they do! It is really mind-boggling!

Although I found it a bit of a 'slow read'.. ie. I fell asleep a few times reading it, I still felt that the information in this book was well worth it. It is fascinating to consider how all parts of our society operate around money and how that indoctrinates everyone into a severely limited way of thinking. This book is eye-opening.
