New Studies Give Mixed Results About Taking Fish Oil and Vitamin D
(CHICAGO) — Taking fish oil or vitamin D? Big studies give long-awaited answers on who does and does not benefit from these popular nutrients. Fish oil taken by healthy people, at a dose found in many supplements, showed no clear ability to lower heart or cancer risks. Same for vitamin D. But higher amounts of a purified, prescription fish oil slashed heart problems and heart-related deaths among people with high triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood, and other risks for heart disease. Doctors cheered the results and said they could suggest a new treatment option for hundreds of thousands of patients like these. ...

An Impatient Truth
15 years ago, I introduced the concept of patient centricity at our first ‘Patient Summits’ in London and Philadelphia. At the time, the idea was somewhat alien; pharmaceutical executives were more interested in patient compliance, the science of getting patients to take their medicine as instructed, and driving sales through repeat prescriptions.The existing language of the day was aggressive. It was all about ‘capturing’ market share and ‘dominating’ the minds of customers. I’ll never forget being berated by one delegate because a conference talk had deviated from the agenda &nda...

How That Viral Video of a White House Reporter Messes With Your Mind
A terrible thing did not happen in the White House press room on Wednesday. In a sudden non-attack in front of a roomful of non-horrified witnesses, CNN reporter Jim Acosta did not lunge at, strike or place his hands “on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” It would be a very bad thing if that had happened. But it didn’t. So that’s good. You would not know this, however, if you believed a statement released by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, claiming that the attack occurred (which, once more, it didn’t) or, worse, if you saw the edited video sh...
