Donald S. Rubenstein, MD, PhD
To the Editors: I am a loyal reader of Annals; however, I found your last issue (1) repulsively thick with pharmaceutical advertisements. I counted over 191 pages of full-page advertisements compared with only 95 pages of usable text information. This number of ad pages is far in excess of that in previous issues. Are we to expect this 2:1 ratio of ads-to-literature in the use of a limited natural resource?
