Dr. Jarvik

A comment I posted on John Mack's "Pharma Marketing Blog" is getting some attention. Art Harrison of Harrison Instruments emailed me with his appreciation for my post in which I reacted to Dr. Jarvik's television ads for Lipitor, where he breezily claims to be the inventor of the "Jarvik artificial heart."

However, the TRUTH is, his research is based on another man's work, a man Jarvik refuses to acknowledge--and I find it insulting that he's now on television promoting "his" artificial heart after the man died. You won't believe who the man is--he's a well-known celebrity. Read my original post here, and then visit this site. Spread the truth.
