Sex, Lies, and Pharmaceuticals book.

In Sex, Lies and Pharmaceuticals the making of a single modern medical condition is forensically examined, and the resulting story is both fascinating and frightening. The book’s methods are those of rigorous investigative journalism, targeted at uncovering what happens behind the scenes of contemporary medical science. It draws on many scientific journal articles, medical textbooks, historic works of philosophy and sexuality, as well as some juicy corporate marketing materials and a few very revealing court documents.

Moynihan and Mintzes explore the underlying causes of sexual dissatisfaction among women and expose how global drug companies exploit those problems in an attempt to create the next billion dollar disease.

This must-read exposes the careful manipulation of data that pharmaceutical companies have cultivated for the last fifteen years, to create a disease that they plan to cure. In their book, journalist Ray Moynihan and Dr. Barbara Mintzes investigate this newly classified phenomenon, the massive promotion campaign behind it, and the coincidental development of flibanserin, a drug that purports to be the artificial answer.

Award-winning journalist Ray Moynihan and drug assessment specialist Dr. Barbara Mintzes go inside the corridors of medical power to reveal how doctors, psychologists, and PR specialists are now working with global drug companies to promote awareness of this potentially lucrative condition and the drugs being hailed as its cure-all.

Against a backdrop of virtual intercourse, online porn, and burgeoning Viagra sales, Sex, Lies, and Pharmaceuticals reveals how women’s sexual difficulties are being repackaged as symptoms of a new disorder. In this compelling book, award-winning journalist Ray Moynihan teams up with drug assessment specialist Barbara Mintzes to investigate the creation of female sexual dysfunction or FSD, and the marketing machine that promises to "cure" it. The authors go inside the corridors of medical power to visit drug company–sponsored scientific meetings and medical education events where doctors are being trained to see women’s sexual problems as the symptoms of FSD — a pharmaceutically treatable condition. Moynihan and Mintzes explore the underlying causes of sexual dissatisfaction among women and expose how global drug companies exploit those problems in an attempt to create the next billion dollar disease.
  • This is the perfect example of how pharmaceutical companies influence doctors, medical education, public discourse, and the promotion of unnecessary products. In the wake of the FDA's approval of flibanserin (Addyi), a drug for female sexual desire disorders that is slightly better than placebo, clinically insignificant in its effects, and promoted as a treatment for a disorder (hyposexual desire disorder) that isn't even recognized as a clinical diagnosis anymore, it really needs to be read.

  • Paid for expedited and might as well got free shipping bc came the same time. Other than that good book and good price.

  • The book is boring and I didn't finish reading it.and nothing like what I thought it would be.
    It's about drug company's .
