Host Bob Edwards talks with Joe Stephens, investigative reporter for the Washington Post, about the paper's series called The Body Hunters. The series is exploring how US pharmaceutical companies are taking their research and development programs abroad. This way of doing business is not illegal, but there are ethical questions as companies seek cheaper and less stringent regulatory markets to do what they can't do in the US.
