Drug Corporation Scandals: Dangerous drugs,

by Ashley Pringle

Many drugs have been put to market which turned out to have detrimental side effects on patients. Sometimes, these ill effects are either ignored or covered up during testing of by the drug companies in question, and are put to market in spite of these problems in order to turn a profit. Despite the fact that some drugs turn out to be dangerous or even deadly, the drug industry usually isn't heavily negatively affected and sometimes continues covering up such dangerous drugs without the legal responsibility that many other sectors of society require when dealing with potentially detrimental products. Often, ghostwriting can play a strong role in dangerous drugs getting to market unnoticed.
