Excellent movie, I'll just spell it out the point for the board zombies


The intellectuals like to remain cryptic to sound as if they are more interesting and the flakes like to pretend they are missing the point so I'll just get to it.

The point of the movie is to bring light to the pharmaceutical industry testing their drugs, including vaccines, on third world populations instead of say laboratory animals. Get it? When that is not enough they test their deadly elixirs and quack medicines on you turkeys which prevents you from proper reasoning and makes you go on through life oblivious to everything going on around you and thus voting for people like Trump or Hillary who give us no way out.

If you're a total flake with a severe case of denial and stupidity and have a hard time understanding this fact of our out of control corporate system then check out this article where Belgian (later the media changed it to Bulgarian, because Bulgaria isn't exactly the de-facto center of the EU like Belgium is, is it?) nurses were caught infecting Libyan children with HIV/Aids. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/6192439.stm

“Africa has harbored a number of high-profile Western medical miscreants who have intentionally administered deadly agents under the guise of providing health care or conducting research.”

Jesus, who dumb can you be? A drug can't be approved based on animal trials alone.

I must be tested on humans in several phases of trials first and those trials happen across the world not just in the developing countries. Though with many deseases third word is where they are located. For example - good luck trying to hold a malaria trial in Britain and TB too, at least the drug resistant variety, is largely not a first world issue.

Gotta love the irony of someone calling someone else dumb and then misspelling "how".

@ Trax-3 you basically said what the OP said but then interjected your opinion that it is normal and ok. It is not normal nor ok. There is no such thing as a malaria trial since malaria is not a drug. There are of course illegal and deadly drug trials that are administered in unwitting populations and that is not only not ok, it is criminal. Grow some morality for once and yes it is a developed world issue (get with the program already, phrases like "third world" haven't been used since the end of the Soviet Union. It is because it is entities from developed countries testing it on developing countries. See below:
