One of the biases in the drug industry is that most of the actors only focus on the positive elements about their products. Most players pay little attention, and mostly hide the negative effects of drugs from the public. Drug industry also biases in their research by funding, and always intending to control research activities on their drugs to ensure that only favorable results reach the public domain.

Drug makers also assume that due to the need of secrecy in research, it is never important to share information about ingredients with reviewers. Another assumption is that reviewers will not discover any side effects of particular drugs if uninformed about the known contents (Whoriskey, 2012). Actors in the drug industry also assume that their competitors in the sector use weird and banned technologies as well as ingredients in
