Conflict of interest ... is a cancer eating at the core of medical research,” Dr. Kailash Chand, deputy chairman of the British Medical Association, “who is an outspoken critic of what he regards as industry-driven hype surrounding statins” was quoted as saying in a Dec 2015 article published on the Daily Mail Online.
