The Infectious Myth - Peter Gøtzsche and the Cochrane Collaboration

Peter Gøtzsche was one of about 80 people who founded the Cochrane Collaboration in the 1990s, which became the world’s leading evidence based medicine organization, famous for its reviews of drugs, vaccines and other medical interventions. Peter became an advocate for obtaining all the information for reviews, including that which had been submitted to drug regulators, but never made public. When a review of the HPV vaccine was published by Cochrane, giving it a clean bill of health, Gøtzsche and colleagues publicly criticized it. This was seen as disloyal, but they knew that the review had missed a lot of less positive material. This may have been the major reason for Gøtzsche to be thrown out of his own organization, in a rather brutal fashion, the subject of his new book, “Death of a Whistelblower”.   More information: https://www.deadlymedicines.dk
