Can we trust the information coming from medical journals if this is happening?

Medical journal says it was misled again by doctors with industry ties
Just days after announcing a crackdown on researchers who do not disclose drug company ties, the editor of a prestigious medical journal says she was misled again -- this time by the authors of a study linking severe migraines to heart attacks in women.

Maybe editors are making a mountain out of a molehole or becoming overly cautious. The so-called "ties" seem fairly tenuous.
