Yet there are people who would call this guy a conspiracy nut, solely because they refuse to admit that they are wrong in any way.

Excellent piece, well done, and definitely needed to be said.

Ben is a little dynamo of good sense and good science. Or, as he used to say on his profile, 'a genuine drat-off ninja scientist.`

Altaru: The FDA would enforce the rule and it's always easier to tell the truth than manufacture a lie. The rule would have a clause that if said pharmaceutical company didn`t release all it`s research information they`d loose their patent rights. I believe that would make sure compliance was 100%, because no company would risk loosing their patent to cover up negative results.

Seriously though, your anti-capitalist rants are getting more and more shrill, not all regulation is bad regulation.
