Those within the medical profession often criticize what another member of their association has done. That is neither a positive or negative thing.

The doctor eating one of those meals ( done all across the country everyday) is an issue. It is clearly a potential abuse or conflict of interest and should be ceased between doctors and medical people. They get far more extravagant than crab dinners.

I had to laugh after statins came out. I was discussing one with a pharmacist in my neighborhood and I could swear that her eyes glazed over as she went on and on and on about the need for the them etc. It was like watching a person from a cult repeating the group prayers. She ended her lengthy accolades with a comment that she had just spent a weekend "away" at a retreat where the statins had been discussed.

Nurses, doctors, pharmacists etc are all attacked by drug pushers lol.
