Federal government to start prosecuting scientists who mislead officials by accepting funds from pharmaceutical interests

Federal prosecutors and congressional leaders are beginning to see that government policy officials who accept funding from pharmaceutical interests represent a serious conflict of interest.

From this article comes the following:

A senior government scientist who was a focus of a congressional probe into conflicts of interest in medical research admitted in federal court yesterday that he improperly failed to disclose payments of $285,000 he received as a consultant for the pharmaceutical manufacturer Pfizer Inc.

The concern, no doubt is that health hazard claims will be exaggerated or misrepresented in order to bolster sales of new pharmaceutical products.

Hmmm, where else have I come across a similar breach of ethics, and /or the law?

Oh yes now I remember, smoking ban laws:
