We are joined by award-winning medical investigative reporter Jeanne Lenzer. We discuss her book, The Danger Within Us: America’s Untested, Unregulated Medical Device Industry and One Man’s Battle to Survive It. Lenzer puts forward strong arguments that the medical device industry is under-regulated, and that whistleblowers are insufficiently protected. Woven through her analysis is the story of one patient’s dangers and difficult journey involving an implanted device together. Related stories about physicians and researchers help leaven the medico-legal loaf with the human impact of this massive industry.
