Poison By Prescription
From the back cover:
"This is the story of a toxic drug, with no scientifically proven benefits, which is
being given to tens of thousands of people , including many who are perfectly healthy. It is
a story of collusion between corrupt government officials, incompetent researchers, and an
unscrupulous pharmaceutical company."
John Lauritsen is by profession a survey research analyst. His skills and experience are
invaluable in evaluating the worth and realities of statistical claims.
"John Lauritsen's book is a masterpiece of critical, scientific journalism. . . . He
deserves a Pulitzer Prize."--Frank Buianouckas, Professor of Mathematics
"It is good finally to see in print some hard news of what actually transpired, rather
than the shoddy stuff that passes for journalism elsewhere."--Harry Rubin, Professor of Molecular Biology
"John Lauritsen is a tenacious, consistently accurate, and scholarly researcher. He cares
enought to put himself on the firing line, an unenviable position."--Gary Null, health columnist, author of AIDS: A Second Opionion.
"John Lauritsen is one of the heroes of the epidemic. He is not only a top-notch
investigative reporter. In his own way he is also a scientist."--N.S. Lehrman, M.D., Clinical Director (Retired), Kingsboro Psylchiatric Center
