Potpourri: What is AHA smoking? Will flu shots keep you healthy? Why do some oppose comparative effectiveness research?

Before we wrap up the week, here are some items published this week that we think readers of this blog will be interested in:

“…some interests have expressed significant concerns about CER and in many cases have tried to make it difficult for it to be done. This doesn’t surprise us. While industry espouses market forces, it has also opposed efforts to ensure that consumers get good comparisons of price and quality. Industry doesn’t really want good comparisons. Rather it wants consumers to make decisions based on advertising and promotion.”
