Adding to my suspicions are these new "laws" that doctors have to comply to. Seems that after some teeth pulling, industry has published public sites that allow medical professionals to be privy to some but not all of the chemicals used in their processes. To get the complete list, a doctor has to sign a con- fidentiality agreement on the condition they can't share the information with anyone else - not even the patient. To do so would expose the medic to legal action. Now, how the frack is a doctor going to be able to help a patient who has strange symptoms without knowing what might be causing them unless he has a potential lawsuit hanging over his head? How fair is that? Remember, this is public safety we're talking about here. Taken from that perspective, trade secrets matter very little, especially in this post-9/11 world in which "... we have to be right 100% of the time, whereas they have to be right just once." It all defies logic. Then again, it's business as usual.
