I will have to find an article I read a while ago written by a ex pharmaceutical rep about the truth of pharm/doctor relations. The spend a lot of money and give a lot of freebies to get doctors to push their drugs. If I find it I will send it to you.

Read this "article" and I have to say first that NCOW is a horrible acronym...LOL.  The second thing is, I'm not confident that the information is all on the up and up.  Are they talking about late term fetal death, miscarriages (that may or may not have been related) or what?  Where is the study and what are the numbers?  I couldn't find the study anyplace, including NCOW's website. 

I am a big believer in education and getting as much info as possible in order to make an educated decision for myself and my family.  However, one article that posts scary numbers (and over 4000% is a scary number) without any explanation or backup from 3-4 years ago is a bit "fly by night" to me.  If this were indeed a legitimate stat, I can imagine it would be all over the news, not to mention cited on multiple websites.  Just because the word "truth" is in the website name, doesn't make the info contained therein truth...seems more "truthy" to me, to coin a Colbert phrase.  JMHO.

That is a very bias source.

The Mayo Clinic recommends it. I'm pretty big on the Mayo Clinic and their research.
