I think it is important because ultimately, for those with particular biochemical disorders, the hope of more effective medications is key. To be under the impression that the advancement of this research is significantly hampered or skewed by money is disheartening.

I think it is judicious to be angry at those responsable for changing the direction of such important research.

Its like hearing about corrupt 3rd world relief organizations, and the like. You know, where you give them 1$ a day to feed starving kids, and they use 95 cents of it on administrative costs.

Think of it this way. If lithium were discovered today to be effective in bipolar disorder, it would never see the light of day. What drug company in their right mind would waste the time?
