Safety Last: The Failure of the Consumer Health Protection Syst

“Safety Last is an indictment of the consumer health protection system that approves new drugs and medical devices sold in Canada. Nicholas Regush, an investigative reporter with the Montreal Gazette, helped unearth the scandal around the Meme breast implant. (The implant, later drawn from the market had a polyurethane cover that released a potential carcinogen into the body.) His insistent badgering of the government about this dubious device, often used for cosmetic reasons, led to his being banned from interviewing federal health officials.” – Ellen Roseman
