Inmates running the asylum…

Unsurprising FDA/drug company incest:

It seems that the Food and Drug Administration turned to “a non-profit run by a pharmaceutical industry advertising consultant to help design its new campaign to educate consumers about direct-to-consumer drug advertising. The FDA’s recently launched website, “Be Smart About Prescription Drug Advertising: A Guide for Consumers,” was developed by EthicAd, a non-profit run by Michael Shaw out of the offices of Atlanta-based Shaw Science Partners. Shaw’s firm claims credit for having helped launch over 25 pharmaceuticals, including Viagra, Celebrex, Zoloft, Cymbalta, and Rezulin, which was later withdrawn from the market because of safety concerns.”
