Abstract:

"Documents the practice of large pharmaceutical companies selling medicines to Third World countries ... that are banned or severely restricted in the United States and Europe because they cause blindness, liver disorders, central nervous system diseases, sterility and death in humans, and are carcinogenic in laboratory animals. Specific products and manufacturers are named as the film documents their use and abuse in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Kenya, Japan, Bangladesh and Malaysia. Today's brand names may be changed, but practices documented have not. Only one manufacturer agreed to be interviewed for this hard-hitting report. They then tried to bribe the producer so that he would cancel its telecast."--Container.
