Medical Journals and ‘Sponsored’ Articles – things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm!?

Food for thought – for medical journals, ghostwriting usually refers to writers sponsored by a drug or medical device company, who make major but unaccredited research or writing contributions. 

I was reading an article in a ‘popular’ medical journal about cranberry juice (pure cranberry juice). It stated that there is no proof that it can help kidney and bladder infection or disorders.  As a holistic nutritionist I know this is untrue as I have helped prevent reoccurring bladder and kidney infections in some of my clients through the use of pure cranberry juice and capsules. Lesson – don’t believe everything you read even if it’s an MD’s signature at the bottom. Medical journals will never admit that a natural remedy will work and if they did the ‘poor’ pharmaceutical companies would suffer.
