Summary This investigation is about how the National Institute of Health allows its scientists to take side jobs as consultants for drug companies. The articles show how this conflict of interest can affect their work, and how it can be detrimental to the health of America. Not only does the agency allow for the conflict of interest, but it allows top-paid employees to keep their consulting confidential.
