    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi Xring,

    Excellent post. Truly shocking. Why do the drug, stent, etc companies pay tens of thousands of dollars to these consultant physicians? There can only be one reason. To make sure the public has faith in the manufacturer's medical technology to heal them. Also, not hear about lifestyle or any competing idea.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    I just want to say--Marianne, check out the Fuhrman diet for your husband.

    A former correspondent of mine, Dr. Larry Weisenthal who has a cancer clinic in California, has written on the habit of some cancer doctors of using certain cancer drugs simply because they make more profit on these rather than other drugs which may be as beneficial or more beneficial for the patient.

    Doctors don't like me. I question everything. One fired my for not taking his (stupid) advice.

    Great post. Only remember the conflict of interest is between patient and doctor. All other parties have a common interest: $$$$$$$$$.
