NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Disease-mongering of menopause and premature ejaculation

The New York Times published a couple of good articles that touched on the theme of disease-mongering this weekend.

One documented how drug companies sold hormone replacement therapy by making menopause into a disease.

The other showed how drug companies are turning premature ejaculation into a disease that requires treatment.

Disease-mongering for men and women. An equal opportunity marketing tactic. Find it in play in a drug ad near you.
