Merck Creates Fake Academic Medical Journal

There is very little about Big Pharma's manipulative, lies-as-marketing behavior that shocks me anymore, but this time out I am astounded: Merck has gone and created a fake academic journal, Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine, according to The Scientist. Merck products such as Fosamax were featured in "studies" in the journal, which is reportedly published by Elsevier, a well-known academic journal publishing house. Both it and Merck have got a lot of explaining to do."

I think we have to go with only officially sanctioned organizations such as ASCO and the NIH.
That is why I always take these small, out of left field studies with a large grain of salt.
If they aren't large, well balanced and from someplace like ASCO, then I don't trust them.
