Dr Peter Wilmshurst, the man who turned down two years salary
Peter refused offer of two years salary to not publish paper showing a drug was dangerous
I spent some time with Dr Peter Wilmshurst, a British consultant cardiologist who works with the NHS. Peter has been somewhat of a whistleblower since the 1980s after his experience with a drug company offering him money to not publish research showing a drug was both useless and dangerous. Peter refused. Since that time Peter has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of those that seek to commit medical and research malpractice.
We spoke for an hour, and I think we could have spoken for hours more. Peter is a wealth of knowledge on some of the excesses of medical research. His contributions will no doubt help to steer the editorial of my upcoming project, The Research Cartel.
