As more malfeasance in medical research comes to light, the research community may conclude that they may as well return to natural medicines than won't enrich the fat cats via their expensive--and now bogus--pharmaceuticals.
Yes, the Perfect Storm is brewing for a comprehensive return to natural medicines, in my opinion.
According to a group of health experts, the World Bank published bogus financial and statistical accounts and squandered money on useless malaria treatment. The World Bank says the accusations are unfounded. The World Bank, with an annual budget of $20 billion, is the world's major aid organisation which focuses on eradicating poverty. [...]
The authors of the accusation, Amir Attaran (University of Ottawa, Canada) and colleagues say that since 2000, the World Bank has:
-- Hidden how much it spends on malaria
-- Not kept its promise of $300-500 million for malaria control in Africa
-- Reduced its number of malaria experts from 7 to zero not long after pledging to focus more on the disease
-- Exaggerated its performance by inventing bogus epidemiological statistics
-- Backed treatments in India which The World Health Organization said were obsolete and should not be done
