Oops, they did it again

A report from Kaiser Health News shows how a NASEM report on medical waste — how taxpayers spend millions every year on medication that’s thrown away because the vials it comes in are too large — left out some important info. Specifically, how both NASEM itself and the members of the report committee received a lot of money from the pharmaceutical industry. The report’s “unbiased” conclusion: ‘Don’t worry about that waste.’ Hmm. Conflicts and bias, you say? Sounds like NASEM’s July 2020 cBHT report, doesn’t it?
