"Disease mongering" and restless leg syndrome

There's an interesting post on the Pharma Marketing Blog about some possibly problematic ties between the RLS Foundation and its corporate pharma sponsors that have the potential to bias the research the foundation has one on the prevalence of RLS and hence, the need for its corporate sponsors' RLS drugs. I'll be watching this one to see where author John Mack goes with it (and where the Google ads on his blog go with it—interestingly, there were two ads for "natural remedies" for RLS when I read it). And here's another post on related topics.
