More evidence of ghostwriting (hiring professional writers to slant an article or review of studies in usually in favor of a drug company) - this time with hormone replacement therapy.

Ghostwriting calls into question the integrity of the findings and conclusions in medical literature - literature reviewed by doctors, nurses, hospital and HMO physicians in making healthcare decisions and treatment recommendations - but the big question is:

Does it lead to more medical mistakes and medical errors?

According to an analysis reported by CNN Health, Wyeth paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to ghostwriters to write misleading information about hormone therapy.  How many patients were harmed by that misinformation?

Scary isn't it?
