Scientist Misconduct

This is a troubling article in the Washington Post (hint: use Bugmenot to access) about scientists fibbing their results to some degree.

In the case of drug companies, this no doubt happens all the time. Drug companies hire scientists. Scientists come up with results that mean profits for drug companies. The research is faulty. Consumers suffer from dangerous prescriptions, or prescriptions that really don't do much of anything.
