Abstract

Lynn Payer's Disease-Mongers is passionate, provocative, and prescient. The book's thesis is simple, compelling, and for many people utterly counter-intuitive: doctors, drug companies, and device manufacturers are engaged in “broadening the definitions of diseases” in order to increase demand for their products and services. Since the book was first published in 1992, the evidence has mounted that Payer's disturbing view of the medical establishment is all too accurate.
