Jonathan Leo...HERO

Dr. Jonathan Leo a physician and professor of neuro-anatomy (Boy, he looks like he is only 16 years old!) should be seen as a hero within the medical community. With all the political pressures and backlashing within the medical profession today, this one physician had the courage to report conflict of interest in a study that was published in JAMA.
We need more honest and courageous physicians to stand up for what is right. But we also need laws to protect them for doing so. Many physicians get blacklisted or fired for speaking or doing what is right.
Cheers for Jonathan Leo!
