IRB: The Censorship You've Never Heard Of

Unless you're an academic, of course. From Commentary and worth reading in its entirely (if you care about this sort of thing):
Since the 1970s, the government has overseen the establishment of bodies called Institutional Review Boards, and these “IRBs” have suppressed vast amounts of talking, printing, and publishing—even mere reading and analyzing—for hundreds of thousands of Americans. This is utterly unconstitutional, and in stifling research and its publication, it has proved deadly.
